This powerful exfoliating treatment is specifically formulated to promote cellular renewal, improve skin texture, diminish blemishes and brighten the complexion. Designed to deliver exceptional results for any skin type without the discomfort or recovery time of traditional resurfacing formulas.



Advanced Skin Care

Limited sun exposure and daily use of UV protection (a serum and sunscreen, ideally) are both strongly suggested when undergoing any facial peel regime. These measures help protect your skin from future damage, as well as reinforcing the corrective efforts you’re making when getting facial peels.

SkinCeuticals® Gel Peels

These introductory “maintenance” peels are designed to minimize the appearance of surface lines, smooth out rough skin texture, aid in clearing acne, and can help face hyperpigmentation. They can be done a-la-carte, but are most effective when done in a series of 4 – 6 sessions performed every 7 – 14 days. Mild flaking may occur, but client shouldn’t expect any downtime.

SkinCeuticals® Alpha Beta Peel Treatment

This intermediate “maintenance” peel uses both alpha and beta hydroxy acids to effectively help minimize the appearance of fine lines, clear acne, fade hyperpigmentation, and promote smooth skin.  Can be done a-la-carte as a wonderful, brightening facial, but is most effective when done in a series of 3 – 6 sessions performed every 7 – 14 days. Not recommended for extremely sensitive skin or for those with an allergy to aspirin. Mild flaking may occur, but client shouldn’t expect any downtime.

Éminence Organic Arctic Berry Enzyme Peel

A 3-step peel designed to target issues in all skin types. You’ll be radiant after one session, but it’s best done in a series of 4 professional treatments over 4 months, with at-home care as part of the regimen.

Éminence Organic Yam & Pumpkin Enzyme Peels

These enzyme peels refine and firm skin, reduce hyperpigmentation, and boost collagen formation. Suitable for all skin types except acneic, and not recommended for those with an allergy to aspirin, pineapple, or papaya.

A 5% Peel is recommended for clients with sensitive skin, those using Retinol or at-home “peeling” treatments, those who have undergone a chemical peel in the past 2 weeks, those who have sun- or wind-burn, or those with active cold sores.

A 20% Peel is highly active and is recommended for instantly noticeable results and is recommended to be done 1x/week for up to 5 weeks, then may be resumed after a 3+ week hiatus and at-home care.


Combat the signs of aging and photodamage with the help of exfoliating aluminum oxide crystals. Most effective when done in a series of at least 3 sessions. Note: This service is only available at acac spa at Albemarle Square.

Add-on: Custom Facial (30 additional minutes) to each individual session for only $30

Pigment Balancing Peel

This brightening, powerful chemical peel addresses hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, and photodamaged, mottled skin. Radiance will be increased and laxity will be improved, with little to no discomfort. Flaking is not uncommon for a few days after this treatment. This is most effective when done in a series of 4-6 sessions performed every 14 – 28 days.
