Chemical Peels in Mill Valley
What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels reveal the smoother, healthier skin below the surface. They tend to be stronger and deeper penetrating than resurfacing treatments at SkinSpirit Mill Valley, which are typically relatively light and gentle.
How It Works
Chemical peels dissolve the connection that holds dead cells together on the surface of the skin, revealing the smoother, healthier skin beneath. There are a number of different types of chemical peels available at our location in Mill Valley, CA, depending on your skin concerns.
Your aesthetician will help you determine the best type of peel for you during your complimentary consultation.
The SkinSpirit Mill Valley Experience
At SkinSpirit Mill Valley, near Marin, CA, we strive to provide our clients with real, natural looking results, and the best care possible. Our facial services are no different than any other medical-grade treatment we provide.

We offer several types of peels in the Marin area, and your provider can offer recommendations after taking a look at your skin.
Ideal for those with pigment abnormalities, acne and photo damage.
This chemical peel treatment is the next step above a Pumpkin/Pro–Retinol Peel and a Salicylic Acid resurfacing treatment — perfect for those wanting their first “chemical peel.” It addresses various skin conditions, such as hyper pigmentation, breakouts and sun damage.
The Vitalize Peel cannot be combined with any other treatment. A series of three treatments is recommended for best results. Peeling will occur two days after application and last two to four days. Peeling results may vary with each treatment and for each person.
Modified Jessner Peel
Ideal for those with stubborn hyper pigmentation, moderate acne and oiliness.
More aggressive than a Vitalize Peel, this peel renews oily and ruddy skin while reducing the look of discoloration.
It cannot be combined with any other treatment. A series of three treatments is recommended for best results. Moderate shedding of the skin is expected. Peeling will occur 2 days after application and last 3-6 days. Results vary with each treatment and for each person.
Ideal for skin with visible sun damage, wrinkles and collagen depletion.
This peel is formulated to reduce the visible signs of moderate aging. Unlike the above, it can be combined with any other treatments (depending on your clinical aesthetician’s recommendation).
Mild to moderate shedding of the skin can be expected although peeling varies for each person and is not the indication of a successful peel. The improvement of skin may occur even without visible peeling. As a stand-alone treatment, a series of three sessions is recommended for best results.
SkinSpirit Austin chemical peels are expected to take on average 30 minutes.

Chemical peels work from the inside of the skin out and peeling will take days to appear. Because chemical peel treatments are more aggressive than resurfacing treatments and designed to deliver optimal results, downtime is typically expected, but varies by type.
Results can also vary depending on the treatment that best fits your skin type, but ultimately all chemical peels help skin look noticeably brighter, more even and smoother.
