At The Upper Hand Day Spa, our professional chemical exfoliation treatments provide customizable programs that range from superficial (subtle) to aggressive (astonishing), which allows us to better meet the needs of our clients. Many times a combination of these procedures help to bring about the best results on the skin. While embracing the benefits of chemical exfoliation to promote cellular turnover we also believe in supporting the skin to accelerate repair and prevent free radical damage, which allows the skin to heal while it peels. Several different peel options, including physician only blends, allow us to address all types of skin concerns.

These treatments can help individuals achieve clearer and more even skin tone while correcting the damage done by time and UVA and UVB rays. Deep exfoliation can be the answer to clearing up acne, while for others a chemical peel can correct hyper-pigmentation issues and fine lines and wrinkles. Peels remove the upper layers of the skin helping to promote accelerated cell renewal. New skin comes in giving a more even, smoother tighter skin.

All clients must receive a consultation prior to these services to ensure optimal results, therefore these services cannot be scheduled online.
