As we age, our skin cell turnover rate, or the skin's natural exfoliation process, slows down. The top layer can quickly turn dull, rough, flaky and patchy. We can compensate for this change by being proactive with our skin care routine, diet and adding procedures like peels, microdermabrasion and laser treatments. By including these treatments in our regimen, we can accelerate cellular turnover revealing brighter, even and smoother skin.

Peels work by breaking down the top layers of the skin by applying a solution. There are varying degrees of strengths: superficial, medium and deep. Most commonly offered are superficial peels as they have minimal downtime. You might experience some redness right after the procedure and some dryness or light flaking in the following days. It’s a great option to do a few days before an event.

Here at MD Boutiques we also offer VI Peels. This line was created 10 years ago by Dr. Khalil for his daughter who was experiencing cystic acne. Chemical peels at that time were painful and they were not designed for different skin types. He saw the potential of what peels could do but the formula he needed didn’t exist. He went on to create VI Peel, a safe, versatile and an effective option for a myriad of skin issues ranging from rosacea to acne.
