What are chemical peels
Chemical peels are cosmetic procedures in which a chemical, acid or fruit solution is applied to the skin to exfoliate and remove the outer layers, revealing newer, smoother, and more evenly toned skin underneath. These treatments can help improve skin issues such as wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, and uneven pigmentation by promoting cell turnover and stimulating collagen production. Chemical peels come in various strengths, ranging from mild to deep, and should be performed by a trained dermatologist or licensed skincare professional to ensure safe and effective results.

Intake and Initial Consultation
The session usually begins with a discussion between the practitioner and the client. During this consultation, we assess your skin type, concerns, and goals to determine the most appropriate type and strength of chemical peel for your needs. This discussion helps us understand your needs and tailor the session accordingly.
Before the peel, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, oils, and debris. In some cases, a pre-peel regimen may be recommended, which may include the use of specific skincare products to prepare the skin.
The peel solution is applied to the treatment area(s) using a brush, cotton pad, or applicator. The solution typically contains one or more acids, such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), or trichloroacetic acid (TCA), depending on the type and depth of peel.
The solution is left on the skin for a specified amount of time, which varies based on the type of peel and the individual’s skin sensitivity. During this time, you may experience a mild tingling or burning sensation.
After the desired exposure time, the practitioner neutralizes the peel solution using water or a neutralizing agent to stop the chemical reaction on the skin.
The treated area is then cleansed, and a soothing ointment or moisturizer is applied to minimize discomfort and promote healing. Specific post-peel instructions will be provided, which may include avoiding sun exposure and using gentle skincare products.
The recovery period varies depending on the depth of the peel. Superficial peels may cause minimal downtime with mild redness and peeling, while deeper peels may result in several days of more noticeable peeling and redness.
Over the next few days to weeks, the old, damaged skin layers peel away, revealing smoother, rejuvenated skin underneath. Multiple sessions may be required for optimal results, and results may continue to improve over time as collagen production increases.
It’s essential to follow post-peel care instructions diligently and use sunscreen regularly to protect the newly exposed skin from sun damage. The specific details of the procedure can vary depending on the type and strength of the chemical peel used and individual factors, so it’s important to consult with a qualified professional for personalized guidance.
Preparing your skin before a chemical peel is crucial to ensure a safe and effective treatment. Here are some pre-care steps to follow before getting a chemical peel:
Remember that the specific pre-care requirements may vary based on your unique circumstances and the type of chemical peel you’ll be undergoing. Always consult with your skincare professional for personalized guidance on how to prepare for your chemical peel.
Following post-chemical peel instructions is essential for proper healing and achieving the best results. These instructions may vary depending on the type and depth of the chemical peel you’ve undergone, so be sure to follow your practitioner’s specific recommendations. Here are some common post-chemical peel instructions:
Types of Peels we offer
FCR Fractional Cell Regeneration Peel
If you have heard of facial peeling, then Fractional Cell Regeneration (FCR) treatment is also considered as one. However, unlike the conventional chemical peeling that dissolves your skin with acid, FCR treatment activates your skin cells and promotes normalization of turnover by regenerating new cells. It is much gentler.
FCR therapy is a natural alternative to microneedling, laser procedures, and chemical peels without prolonged downtime and unwanted side effects. We chose FCR because the Asian Beauty industry is 20 years ahead of North America and Europe in cosmetic technology. We are the only few that offer Fractional Cell Regeneration in the Tampa Bay area.
How FCR Works
FCR treatment aims to revitalize your skin by allowing natural plants, marine ingredients, and minerals to penetrate deep into your dermis layer. These osmotic components will continually act on your blood circulation for up to 48 hours to regenerate new cells.
FCR provides solutions for a wide variety of the most common skin situations. It is achieved through a unique methodology of hand rubbing technique, without any use of aesthetic machines. The “FCR” Therapy was made popular in Korea.
This cutting-edge therapy is extremely effective in brightening hyperpigmentation, reducing enlarged pores, and improving skin tone and elasticity WITHOUT pain, with minimal downtime, and without unwanted side effects. It is an all-in-one resurfacing therapy that addresses skin situations such as uneven skin texture, and color, post-breakout scarring and discoloration, premature aging and wrinkles, melasma, buildup of keratin, and more.

Brazilian Bikini Peel
An intimate Brazilian Bikini Peel is a specialized skincare treatment designed to exfoliate and rejuvenate the delicate skin in the bikini area. It typically involves gentle chemical exfoliation or a combination of treatments to improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of ingrown hairs and dark spots. It will brighten your skin, help with folliculitis, and improve texture irregularities in unsightly private areas.
This is a series of peel treatments that you would have conducted in a professional treatment room. The severity of the discoloration would determine how many treatments you would need to achieve your desired goals. We recommend 5 professional applications with follow-up home care maintenance included.
What is Hyper-friction™ and what causes this discoloration?
Intimate Discoloration from coarse hair, thin skin, and excessive rubbing in particular areas cause chronic inflammation and irritation.
- Shaving – Shaving can cause discoloration due to the amount of pressure being used, the direction in which you are shaving, and how sharp the blade is. Razor Bumps are also a common skin condition that occurs as a result of shaving. Include clusters of small, red, or dark bumps around hair follicles. In addition, the surrounding skin is often red and inflamed.
- Tight clothing- Especially during workouts
- Genes – Genes play a significant role in the number of melanocytes you inherit, which can cause hyperpigmentation to form more quickly and some areas to become darker than others.
- Not exfoliating or Over Exfoliating – dead skin cells build up every day, which can cause discoloration. Regular exfoliation 2-3 times a week will help to smooth and brighten the area. However, over-exfoliation can cause the skin’s barrier to damage which could lead to sensitivity.
- Waxing – Waxing is an excellent alternative to shaving. However, if it is not done correctly, you may experience PIH (Post Inflammatory Hyper-Pigmentation), which will cause discoloration.
What level of peeling will I experience?
After day three, there will be some noticeable dryness and minor to major sloughing of the skin
