Your Skin. Care.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels restore and energize the texture of your skin by reversing damage from previous, chronic sun exposure. A series of chemical peels help remove unwanted age spots, improve the quality of the skin through exfoliation, and to replenish and invigorate the skin. In addition, a chemical peel is also performed to control acne breakouts and refresh the skin to a smooth clarity. By unclogging the pores and exfoliating the skin, a chemical peel helps prevent flare-ups of acne as well as treat existing lesions. There are different types of chemical peels including from glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, and bleaching peels to rejuvenate your skin and maintain a clear complexion.

The most important steps for the treatment of your skin are to:

  • Refresh
  • Rejuvenate
  • Replenish
  • Restore
  • Revitalize

The Aesthetic Center at the Dermatology Institute and Skin Care Center of Santa Monica provides the highest caliber aesthetic treatments for your skin. Dr. Yamauchi and our aesthetician will recommend the most advanced and latest approaches to revitalize and refresh your skin.

Please feel free to schedule an initial complimentary 15 minute consultation with our aesthetician, to discuss the best course of treatments to enhance your skin.
