CHEMICAL PEEL are the best cure for acne, sun-damaged, and hyperpigmented skin conditions…
Our product line has two levels of Peels. The first Peel is a safe four-step medium depth chemical peel containing a combination of lactic, salicylic, and citric acids plus trichloroacetic acid (TCA) combined with natural moisturizers. The Extra Strength Peel is an advanced peel for skin resistance to medium depth peels.
How does it work?
CHEMICAL PEEL remove dead skin cells and stimulate cell regeneration, collagen, and elastin growth in the deeper layers of the skin.
What are the benefits?
By removing the aged and damaged skin, the complexion develops a more youthful appearance. Chemical Peels also bring whiteheads and blackheads to the surface, clearing skin faster. They lighten brown spots and patches on the face and body for a more even-toned skin.
Can Chemical Peels be used on all skin types?
CHEMICAL PEEL can be safely used on all skin types and tones. However, the procedure may need to be modified for darker complexions by lengthening the preconditioning time and incorporating Bleaching Cream or Bleaching Serum into your skincare regimen.
Can I have a peel if I am prone to Herpes labialis?
People with frequent perioral Herpes labialis (Herpes simplex; Cold sore; Fever blister) should consult their physician before the peel as they may need a prescription for antiviral medication.
Can I have a peel if I am pregnant or if I am nursing?
No. Wait until after you deliver or complete nursing before treating yourself to a Peel.
Can I have a ProPeel if I am using Accutane?
No. The skin doesn’t heal as well when undergoing Accutane therapy. Wait two months after you have completed your course of Accutane to have a Peel.
What should I do before the Peel?
For optimal results, precondition with professional home care products recommended by the skincare professional according to the following chart:
Fitzpatrick Skin Types and Length of Preconditioning
Type I (very white or freckled) 4-6 weeks
Type II (white) 6-8 weeks
Type III (white to olive) & Type IV (brown) 8-12 weeks
Type V (dark brown) & Type VI (black) 12-16 weeks
How long does a Peel take?
It takes less than the time for a facial: 15-30 minutes.
What are the preparatory steps?
Remove your makeup, jewelry and contact lenses prior to the treatment. You will be provided with a fan for cooling. Chemical Peels consist of four steps.
Step I is a modified Resorcinol-Free Jessner solution.
Step II is a mild TCA and Salicylic Acid peel.
Step III is a stronger TCA and Salicylic Acid peel for use on resistant skin types.
Step IV is a patented Vitamin A Propionate conditioning lotion used to blend Steps I, II, and III.
What does my skin look like after CHEMICAL PEEL ?
Immediately after the Peel, the skin may look sun¬burned. The next day it may appear darker and feel tight. On days 2-3 the skin will start to peel. By days 5-7, the skin will have completely finished the peel. Proper post-peel care is critical. You must use the recommended Post-Peel Treatment Kit for best results.
Can I wear makeup immediately after a ProPeel?
Yes, but first hydrate the skin with your moisturizers to mat down the peeling; then, you will be able to use your makeup. This flaking is temporary and the skin will return to normal in 5 to 7 days.
Can I go in the sun after a Peel?
Yes, but you must protect your new skin with Day Treatment Lotion SPF 15 and protective clothing when exposed to the sun. Protecting your skin with a moisturizing sunscreen is an integral part of all peel regimens.
Can I have a Peel If I am using Vitamin A products?
Yes. Conditioning the skin with Vitamin A for several weeks prior to having a Peel is an important step in achieving the most effective results. Be sure to tell your skin care professional if you are using Vitamin A. Your skin care professional may request that you discontinue the Vitamin A for a short time before the peel if your skin is peeling excessively.
How often can I have a Peel?
The Peel is done every 4 to 8 weeks for people with sun damaged skin, acne problems, or uneven pigment. A series of 4 to 6 Peels is recommended for maximum effectiveness. The more Peels you have, the better your complexion will appear.
What’s next after the Peel?
Start to enjoy the improved appearance of your new skin. Restart your Professional Skin Care Treatments, home care regimen, and schedule another Peel.

The waxing process was quick AND it did NOT hurt! I am so thrilled and love the results. Magdalen is funny and I will be coming back. Come check out this spot, super clean and lots of parking available.read more
She’s such a lovely lady. She welcomed me very nicely and also made me very comfortable, made me... laughed throughout the entire waxing process, which helped a lot to calm my nerves down. She does facials too but I’ve not had such services with her. Magdallen is a sweet lady and very experienced. Looking forward to my next service with her. Thanks, Magdallen!read more
No question, Magdalen knows her way around a chia pet! She’s fantastic! Best Brazilian wax I’ve... ever had. She doesn’t just wax, she details! The magnifying light she uses says it all! Thank you!read more
I went for my first Brazilian and it was an amazing experience! I was scared coming in as a... first-timer, but Magdalen was very nice and super quick.

Overall, it was a very easy process and I’ll definitely be back!read more

Definitely worth the money and she’s such a sweetheart!read more
Went to Ms. Magdalene for a hydrafacial and it was amazing. Aside from being extremely personable,... she is also very knowledgeable. The first couple of minutes were used to assess my skin and decide what would be appropriate to do. She was very engaging through out the whole process, talked to me about each step and made sure I approved of her work! After, she made recommendations on skin care products and gave me instructions on how and when to use each one. Also, throughout the procedure, expect her to be the therapist and life coach you never had lol. It’s pricey but worth it. 10/10 recommend.read more
From my initial phone call with Ms.Magdalen to the end of my service she had me laughing. She has a... kindhearted, fun spirit and great personality all around. Very direct with her expectations (be punctual) and will answer your questions. She is the only one in her shop and uses paper strip vs hard wax. I questioned the paper strips but my results were amazing and so smooth. I received a full Brazilian and underarm wax, its been a week since my service and no hair growth or skin issues from her products. Also, the pain was minimal and tolerable, I was on my cycle so you will be more sensitive. The positions are different from my normal but her reasoning was true. I been getting waxed for about 8-9yrs and she was a 10/10! Highly recommend Ms.Magdalen to anyone who is in the Rockville, MD area!read more
