Chemical peels transform the dead, dull skin into the bight & glowy skin you have always dreamed of.

What are chemical peels

Chemical Peels are a simple way of targeting and correcting multiple skin concerns. The benefits of a chemical peel include reducing fine lines and wrinkles, improving scars, treat acne, reducing age spots, & improving skin texture. By using a combination of acids, chemical peels breaks the dead & dull skin and creating a glowing skin appearance.

Glow & Go: Illuminize Chemical Peels

The ‘Glow & Go’ really lives up to its name!

The Illuminize Peel will leave the skin glowing with minimal to no downtime. This peel will only remove the outermost layer of dead skin, leaving a healthy glow.  The Illuminize Peel is also a great place to start to see how your skin will react to a chemical peel! We add a Dermaplane prior to the treatment to enhance results and to provide extra exfoliation.

This is the perfect peel for people with mild skin concerns such as fine lines, sun damage, acne, & hyperpigmentation. Noticeable results after just one peel, very effective after 3-6 peels.

ZO 3 Step Peels

The ZO 3 Step Peel is the deepest peel at AMA. It utilizes a blend of exfoliants, retinol and multi-action agents to help improve overall skin health. The ZO 3-Step Peel evens skin texture for smoother, softer, and tighter looking skin. Key benefits of ZO 3-Step Peel include acne, sun damage, reduce large pores, & skin dullness. Peeling starts day 3, post-treatment, and can continue for up to 7 days. A Dermaplane may be added to this peel for an additional $50. 


Dermaplane Service

A Dermaplane is a great addition to a peel to help the peel penetrate the skin deeper. Dermaplaning is a procedure that removes the top layer of the skin. This service aims to remove fine lines and wrinkles and deep acne scarring, as well as make the skin’s surface smooth and glow.
