A chemical peel is using a chemical solution on the skin to remove the top dead layer of skin and reveal a brighter, newer, and more youthful appearance. There are three types of chemical peels: superficial, medium, and deep. At Rejuvalife, we focus on superficial and medium chemical peels that require very little downtime with rapid results.

Superficial, Mild or “Lunchtime” chemical peels are those that gently exfoliate the top layer of skin, often using mild chemicals such as alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) or salicylic acid.
Medium peels use trichloroacetic or glycolic acid to penetrate deeper into the skin past the outermost layer to remove damaged skin cells below the surface.
Deep chemical peels use phenol or trichloroacetic acid to completely penetrate the middle layer of skin to remove damaged cells.
The DiamondTome Microdermabrasion technique is used by Dr. Berger because it offers superior skin resurfacing results. Other leading dermatologists and physicians consider this system to be more gentle and effective than other systems, as well as providing superior results.
Added benefits of this microdermabrasion technique are that does not have the problem of loose crystals or abrasive substances being released into the environment.
Benefits of microdermabrasion include:

If you have sensitive, problematic, oily, or aging skin, the Rejuvalife Custom Lite Peel may be right for you. The formulation of beta hydroxy acids (salicylic acid) is designed to loosen and remove aging and dead skin cells, oil, and debris attached to the skin’s surface. Stimulated cell production and increased collagen formation often result in marked improvement in acne prone skin. Regular use can also decrease fine lines, smooth skin, even out pigmentation, and reduce pore size. The Rejuvalife Custom Lite Peel requires no downtime.
Try this chemical peel for a more youthful and radiant complexion. Using alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), the Rejuvalife Peel Plus intensely exfoliates to accelerate the cell renewal process, stimulate collagen renewal, and improve elastin under the skin’s surface. You will notice dramatic improvements in skin texture, freckles, and superficial pigmentation. Because of its molecular structure, glycolic acid penetrates quicker and deeper, is beneficial in improving dry skin, treating age spots, improving oily and acne prone skin, and diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. This peel is especially suited for patients with photo damaged or dry skin and requires no downtime.
Rejuvalife is proud to offer the Vi Peel, designed to reverse the signs of aging and sun damage. Its synergistic blend of gentle yet powerful ingredients can improve the tone, texture and clarity of your skin; reduce or eliminate age spots, freckles, and hyperpigmentation; soften lines and wrinkles; and clear acne conditions. The Vi Peel can also be used to treat sun damage on the décolletage and hands. This virtually painless treatment takes only about 20 minutes and requires minimal healing time.
The Cosmelan Peel is a powerful rejuvenation treatment for particularly stubborn and dense pigmentation. Cosmelan’s synergistic ingredients regulate melanin activity, causing the cells to slow down production and function in a more uniform way. Cosmelan is “sun-friendly” — an especially appreciated factor for our California lifestyle — and works well even on darker toned Asian and Latin skin. Significant results may appear within one week after starting the treatment. You will then maintain your treatment using at-home products on a daily basis. Follow up office visits are recommended at 15 days and 30 days after the beginning of treatment, and once every month thereafter.
You will see dramatic results with the Obagi Blue Peel! After years of development and testing, Obagi has created an innovative physician-administered chemical peel using Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) as the active ingredient. We apply an Obagi Blue Peel with the proper concentration of TCA, based on your skin care needs. When repeated over a period of time, this peel can achieve the same result as a deeper chemical peel or laser. Healing usually takes place in just seven to ten days.
Chemical peels can help address many skin issues and overall signs of aging such as:
The recovery time from a chemical peel varies dependent on the type of peel. Superficial chemical peels require almost no downtime which makes them perfect for quick fixes. Medium chemical peel recovery time is usually five to seven days, though redness can linger for a few months. Deep chemical peels reveal new skin in about two weeks, though redness may last for several months. Our chemical peel options at Rejuvalife all have minimal downtime.
Chemical peel options include retinoic, glycolic,lactic acids and may be customized to correct acne, sun damage, and oily or aging skin. If you have sensitive, problematic, oily, or aging skin, the Rejuva-Light Peel may be right for you. The formulation of beta hydroxy acids (salicylic acid) is designed to loosen and remove aging and dead skin cells, oil, and debris. For patients with sun damage or dry skin, we offer the alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) formulated Rejuvalife Custom Peel. This peel exfoliates to accelerate the cell renewal process, stimulates collagen, and improves elastin.
Lifestyle and normal aging create lines, wrinkles, and texture and color changes on the skin. The areas typically affected by the years include the face, chest, neck, cleavage, arms, and hands.
Microdermabrasion improves skin texture, color, and wrinkles by removing the top layer of skin, leaving it more supple and vibrant. This procedure also stimulates elastin renewal, while will result in healthier firmer skin.
