Chemical Peels

Delivering Solutions from Discovery Through Development

Chemical Peels Customized for You

Regular cell turnover and exfoliation are important to achieve and maintain healthy skin. With chronological aging as well as exposure to environmental damage (including UV rays), our rate of cellular turnover slows. This can lead to a buildup of dead surface cells followed by an appearance of dull a complexion and compromised skin barrier function. Chemical peels help to accelerate exfoliation, revealing a more even-toned and radiant complexion.*


QnA Medical Spa’s Enerpeel utilizes unique acid solutions for specific skin conditions. Our advanced Enerpeel systems are characterized by a patented technology that delivers optimal outcomes while reducing the usual discomfort and social downtime associated with other peels. At QnA Medical Spa, we customize Enerpeels for your particular concerns. Results from your Enerpeel will last as long as your skin is maintained with a proper skincare regimen. Your QnA esthetican will recommend the most beneficial post-care products for your specific skin type and concerns.

Who is a good candidate for the Enerpeel?

Anyone who desires to address facial redness, acne, and visible signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.

Glycolic Peel

A glycolic peel applies a high concentration of glycolic acid—a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) naturally found in sugar cane—directly to the skin followed by a neutralizing solution. During the first treatment, the glycolic acid remains on the skin for approximately one minute with the time interval usually increasing during subsequent peels. The initial reaction to the application of the glycolic acid is often a tingling or itchy sensation or slight stinging. Mild redness will develop and may last for 2 to 24 hours, depending on skin sensitivity. The immediate result after the peel is a softer, cleaner feel to the treated skin.* After each peel, a protective sunscreen is applied. A series of peels over a period of weeks or months, along with a daily skincare maintenance regimen, will slough away the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal fresher, healthier skin.*

  • Reduction of blemishes*

Salicylic Peels

A salicylic peel utilizes salicylic acid to remove surface oil, unclog pores (thus minimizing the formation of blackheads and whiteheads), increase exfoliation, and aid the efficacy of topical medications. This unique oil-soluble acid is obtained from willow trees and is the only beta hydroxy acid (BHA). Because of its oil solubility, salicylic acid is able to deeply penetrate into oil glands to exfoliate dead skin cells, oil, and dirt. The anti-inflammatory properties of salicylic acid also make this BHA an excellent treatment for acne-prone skin.

Salicylic Peels for Acne Prone Skin

During a salicylic peel, the salicylic acid remains on the skin for usually three minutes, although the time interval may increase with subsequent visits. The initial reaction includes a tingling, itchy, or stinging feeling or even a hot sensation. After each peel, a mild redness will develop and may last for 2 to 24 hours depending upon the skin’s sensitivity, and a protective sunscreen is applied to the refreshed skin. A series of peels over a period of weeks or months, along with a daily skincare maintenance regimen, increases the rate in which dead cells are sloughed away from the top skin layer, controls oil production, diminishes blemishes, and reduces the potential for acne scarring.* Salicylic peels give you a clearer, more balanced complexion.*
