Peels

Peels are a superior choice when looking to restore, and rejuvenate the skin.  The great news is that peels have evolved over the past few years and are now better designed to benefit a diverse range of skin concerns and conditions such as:

  • Aging Skin
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Acne Prone Skin
  • Hyper-Pigmentation and Melasma
  • Sun Damaged Skin
  • Rosacea prone skin
  • and more

HOW DO I CHOOSE THE BEST PEEL FOR MY SKIN CONCERNS AND GOALS?

It is mandatory to book a complimentary consultation with one of our Advanced Skin Practitioners to determine if you are a good candidate for our peels. This consultation will allow your skin practitioner to identify your skin needs and choose the best possible peel for your concerns and goals. It is also mandatory to purchase the post peel kit when undergoing the MandeliClear or Jessner Peels.  The kit costs $40 and will last for up to 3 peels.

#1 Vitamin A Infusion Peel

The Vitamin A Infusion Peel is a unique non-acid peel and is customized to your skins needs.  This peel is safe for all skin types and utilizes a concentrated vitamin A solution in the form of Retinaldehyde that is then custom blended with potent nutrients and antioxidants making it a great peel for many skin concerns including aging skin, acne, rosacea, and dull looking skin.  Vitamin A is also a potent stimulator of collagen and elastin. It is massaged deeply into the skin by your practitioner, making it a relaxing treatment.

What you can expect from a Vitamin A Infusion Peel:

  • Increased number of fibroblasts and increased activity of the fibroblasts (the cells that make collagen and elastin)
  • Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Brighter Skin Tone
  • Calms Acne
  • Calms Rosacea
  • Healthier Skin
  • Lifts Hyper-Pigmentation
  • Normalizes oil production

A great combination is Cosmetic Acupuncture + The Vitamin A Infusion Peel for extra collagen stimulation and over all body and mind relaxation.  The combo costs $189 and up to $99 of this combo can be covered by ext. health if you have acupuncture benefits.

You can also combine the Vitamin A Infusion Peel with Microdermabrasion for enhanced exfoliation and penetration of the peel ($159)

#2 Double Strength Vitamin A Infusion Peel

The Double Strength Vitamin A Infusion peel uses the same formula as the vitamin A infusion peel but it includes an extra dose of vitamin A to increase the strength. We recommend starting with a Vitamin A Infusion Peel and working up to the Double Strength Vitamin A Peel.

#3 MandeliClear Pigmentation Peel

The MandeliClear Peel System has been named the Best Peel of 2014 by LNE & Spa readers!  

MandeliClear is effective for lightening pigmentation from acne, melasma or photo-damaged skin. It is also great to help get you acne under control.  This peel is a layering peel – up to 3 layers can be applied, but we will always begin with one.  

The MandeliClear Peel can be classified as a modified Jessner Peel and includes the  addition of a 9% Mandelic acid and unique Vitamin A Accelerator Solution that is applied at the end of the peel to boost the lightening and healing properties.

This treatment is highly effective at lightening pigmentation issues for people with darker skin types such as Asian, Indian or African American skin without risk of post inflammatory reactions.  Additionally, it is an excellent solution for any skin type with pigmentation issues due to acne, melasma or photo-damaged skin.

Frequently Asked Questions Back to top

+ What is the downtime when having a chemical peel?

Downtime varies from person to person depending on their skin. If you are using active ingredients at home such as vitamin A, vitamin C, and acids you will have a better result and more post peeling.

The peeling begins 2-3 days after the treatment and can last up to 7 days depending on the layers applied and the strength of the peel.

+ What is the downtime when having a Vitamin A infusion Peel?

Downtime varies from person to person depending on their skin. If you are using vitamin A at home on a regular basis you will actually have less peeling with this treatment. If you are not already using a vitamin A at home you will experience more peeling.

The peeling is mild to moderate and will begin 2-3 days after the peel. If you are using vitamin A on a regular basis at home you may not experience post peeling but this does not mean you receive less benefits.

The Double Infusion Vitamin Peel adds a vitamin A accelerator to the treatment and will cause more post peeling.

+ Can I wear makeup post peel?

We recommend not wearing makeup. You will find it very difficult to apply makeup post peeling due to the flaking. We do have a special post treatment makeup called Oxygenetix that is recommended if you feel the need to wear makeup.

When skin is peeling it requires nutrients and healing ingredients to support the skin as it rebuilds a healthy fresh new layer.

+ How do I care for my skin during the peeling process?

Your SKN practitioner will advise you on the post care process at the complimentary consultation. When undergoing a chemical peel it is mandatory to purchase a post peel kit that will provide everything your skin needs to ensure a safe and successful peel.

Client Reviews Back to top

"Lovely people, so caring, knowledgeable and really attentive to helping me address my skin issues!

The atmosphere is also wonderful and relaxing. Overall excellent place to unwind, rejuvenate and look fantastic. "

- Serenne R

"I am missing this place SO SO MUCH! I was working in Vancouver for 9 months on a film. Went up with THE WORST cystic acne and blackhead issues of my life and this place absolutely turned my skin around! Now that I'm not getting bi weekly treatments there I definitely am noticing a difference in my skin. My only hope is that I can find somewhere in LA half as good (and affordable), and as nice, as SKN Clinic. I miss it so so much!!!! and so does my skin. :)"

- Lolo R

"The clinic staff are great, professional and knowledgeable. Really like the packages and add ons, lots of variety in services that are proven to work. The SKN care line is brand new to me but I'm really thrilled to have started, my skin feels and looks better already."
