CHEMICAL PEELS

Alumier Chemical Peels

The best of both worlds! Using medical grade skincare and pure acid chemical peel, we will give you the ultimate medical exfoliation your skin needs! Your skin will be deeply cleansed and prepped for the peel, a customized peel will be applied, followed by a post procedure skin care application. We customize your chemical peel experience based on the change you wish to see on your skin. These procedures cause a deep exfoliation in the skin which results in significantly improved tone, texture and radiance, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, thickening of the epidermis and improved efficacy of at home skincare.
When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and begins to rejuvenate itself like a younger skin.


We can add additional elements and other skin services depending on your needs. We are able to provide recommendations for a skincare program after your treatment so that you can keep your results fresh at home! We are able to treat the face, neck, décolleté as well as the back and shoulders. This treatment is safe for all skin types and has mild social downtime.

Sun exposure, tanning beds and artificial sunless tanning lotions should be avoided throughout the course of your treatment program.

Please only use these products for the following 5 – 7 days after your chemical peel treatment.
