What do you do to freshen up your look, without having a lot of social downtime? Skin Care Peels (Chemical Peels, if you will), that’s what! Dr. Birchenough and his staff have 2 effective treatment lines (VISÃOMD and Glo-Therapeutics®) that will get your skin refreshed and get you back to decorating, trimming the tree or make the roast, all while entertaining your guests (the invited ones, and all the others!!)
VISÃOMD Skin Care Peels
Combinations of Vitamin A and C extracts, along with glycolic acid, collagen, enzymes, peptides, and hydrating serums can make a big difference to the overall tone, texture and health of your facial skin.
What Can I Expect During a VISÃOMD Skin Care Peel?
Superficial peels (BRILLIANCE PEELS) are usually done without anesthesia and allow an immediate return to normal daily activities. Fine lines and mild sun-damage are usually treated. The exfoliation process will help promote new outer-layer growth. Typically, the skin may be pink and lightly peeling for a few days after the peel (and sun avoidance is mandatory!), but the results are obvious within a week!
Medium depth peels (PRESTIGE PEELS) may require some oral relaxing medications prior to the peel, due to the deeper level of penetration. Healing takes longer, up to 5 or 7 days, with more redness, peeling and flaking of the outer non-viable skin layers. However, the moderate wrinkles and worse sun-damage and pigmentation dark areas will be more fully treated. Sun avoidance is, again, mandatory to optimize results and minimize the side effects.
Customizable Skin Care Peel MIXOLOGY! Dr. Birchenough and his staff will customize a chemical peel for you, personally, through the Glo-Therapeutics® line.

What Can I Expect During a Glo-Therapeutics® Peel?
Peels are done with or without minimal oral sedation, depending on the depth of the peel, to allow an immediate return to normal daily activities. Fine lines and sun-damage and discoloration are usually treated well. The exfoliation process will help promote new outer-layer growth – “HEAL WHILE YOU PEEL!” Typically, the skin may be pink and lightly peeling for a few days after the peel (and sun avoidance is mandatory!), but the results are obvious within a week!
