The Perfect Peel® stands out because of its key anti-aging ingredient, Glutathione. Glutathione is the ultimate antioxidant- known to prevent damage to important cellular components caused by free radicals and peroxides. As we age, our Glutathione levels are depleted due to sun exposure, air pollutants and environmental stress. Never before has there been a peel to offer results at this level and to all ranges of skin types. That is why the perfect peel is perfect for YOU!
The Perfect Peel combines powerful ingredients with effective acids to deliver outstanding results even after just one treatment. The peel itself is quick and surprisingly comfortable with virtually no stinging or burning, unlike most other peels.
The Perfect Peel is the only peel on the market with Glutathione, an intense antioxidant and anti-aging ingredient. The perfect peel is formulated with an impressive list of active ingredients in addition to Glutothione, including: TCA, Retinoic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Phenol, Vitamin C and Kojic Acid (a skin lightening agent). The treatment also includes a post treatment moisturizer and two treatment towelettes that are infused with retinoic acid and Vitamin C, which are designed to enhance the effects of the peel.
Working from the inside out, to repair and nourish the skin, The Perfect Peel has risen to the top and has become a "stand out" new treatment because of its specific ability to: dramatically improve skin hyperpigmentation, lift melasma, and effectively eliminate acne and acne marks.
Glutathione is a tripeptide derived from glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine. It is a compound involved as a coenzyme in oxidation-reduction reactions in cells, and is the anti-aging answer to premature wrinkling. Glutathione has also proven to reverse the metabolism of melanin thereby turning dark pigmentations (eumelanin) into light pigmentation (phaeomelanin). Glutathione penetrates deep into the cellular level of your skin to fight oxidant damage and The Perfect Peel is the only peel that premieres Glutathione as a founding component and is a true anti-aging ingredient offered exclusively in the formula.
The beauty and appeal of The Perfect Peel is that it is suitable and safe for all skin types (Fitzpatrick 1-6). The Perfect Peel requires no preconditioning of the skin prior to treatment. (Only those patients who use Accutane must stop usage 3 months prior to treatment in order to achieve desired results.) On average patients benefitting from considerable results range between 13 to 75 years old.
Those with any particular health ailments should check with their physician before application. It is commonly asked if the peel can be used on other parts of the body and the answer is "Yes." The face, neck, chest and hands are the most commonly applied areas. The Perfect Peel can be applied to other areas of the body, but the process and the results will not necessarily be the same.
The Perfect Peel formula was specifically designed to help improve various problematic skin conditions such as acne. The Perfect Peel helps minimize the damage and scarring done by acne thanks to the Glutathione, which helps increase cellular turnover to demolish stubborn acne scars. For optimum results, one peel will not be enough. Depending on the severity of the scarring, a series of 3 or more peels every 4 to 6 weeks will likely be needed to diminish the damage and scarring. The number of treatments will also depend on how vigorous the layers are applied.
After just one treatment of the Perfect Peel, your overall skin tone and complexion will appear smooth, glowing and fresh. How perfect is THAT?!
Depending on your skin conditions, multiple treatments may be necessary for desired results. For example, a series of 2 to 3 treatments applied once every 4 weeks will allow for optimal results for more severe skin conditions such as melasma and active acne.
The Perfect Peel application only takes 15 minutes to administer. During your treatment, you can expect to feel a slight stinging or tingling sensation, which will subside after just a few seconds. A fan or cool breeze may be used for your added comfort. The day the peel is applied you should not put any make up or other products on your face post peel. Normal activities may be resumed within 24 hours post peel. We only recommend avoiding heavy exercise and excessive sweating during the peel process.
Immediately after the peel has been applied your skin will either appear red, like a sun burn, or darker. On day three peeling will begin. The Perfect Peel Moisturize will reduce the visibility of peeling by hydrating. By day six or seven the peeling process should be complete and the results are visibly astonishing!
As long as the skin is maintained with proper skin care products and regular maintenance facial treatments, the improved results will last. We recommend two to three treatments of the Perfect Peel per year to sustain desired results for regular maintenance and rejuvenation, as well as the daily use of a medical grade SPF.
Shedding the skin is a process of growth, revitalization and rejuvenation. The amount of peeling skin associated with the Perfect Peel is mainly a sloughing of thin sheets of epidermis skin that begins around day three and generally is completed by day six or seven. The day of the treatment is considered day 1. Peeling usually begins on day 3 and is generally completed by day 6 or 7. Most of the peeling happens on days 3 and 4.
Your skin will be more sensitive during the peel process until the PH level is replenished. Sun exposure should be limited if not avoided completely before and during the peel process to avoid uneven exposure, or undo the benefits of the peel.
If you would prefer to peel over the weekend, the best approach is to schedule your treatment on a Thursday. You will look fine on Friday, with most of the peeling on Saturday and Sunday, and by Monday and Tuesday you usually will have some mild sloughing with little to no peeling.

The Illuminize Peel is a medical grade chemical peel which delivers a nice "glow" to the skin immediately. This mild peel exfoliates dead skin cells in a similar manner that microdermabrasion performs but without the abrasiveness of the crystals and without the risk of spreading bacteria across the skin as the microdermabrasion wand has a tendency to do. The result is a quick glow without any peeling or downtime. This peel is ideal for individuals who want something more invasive than a facial but cannot have the downtime of peeling.
The Vitalize Peel is our most popular peel which exfoliates your dead skin resulting in less acne, less acne scarring, less brown spots and less sun damage. Two days after this peel is applied the skin starts to shed from the chin up to the forehead for a duration of about 2-3 days. If you want to peel during the weekend, we suggest receiving this peel on a wednesday evening.
The Rejuvenize Peel is the strongest of the 3 peels and is ideal for those who have already had other peels and are now tolerant to medical grade peels where individuals are now seeing less shedding of dead skin when other chemical peels are performed. This peel may result is some mild redness and an increase of skin peeling two days after this peel is applied. The duration usually lasts about 3-4 days.
