facial chemical mechanical peels

Vibrant, healthy skin is revealed for a glowing complexion.

A skin peel is a clinical treatment designed to remove the surface layers of skin while
creating a mild stimulus of collagen, elastin and keratinocyte activity.

This can be accomplished chemically, mechanically, or through a combination of both.


Mechanical Peels

There are two main types - Dermaplaning and Micro-needling

Improve softness, texture, tone and uneven skin.

Clarity believes in mechanically peeling your skin. Mechanical peels can be an alternative to chemical peels or used in concert to provide a more intense result . There are two main types of mechanical peels. The first is micro-needling.   The second is called dermaplaning. Both treatments require a highly skilled technique that not only removes dead skin, but unwanted facial hair too!  Clarity's medical staff will help assess which type of peel is right for you, your lifestyle and your budget.

Clarity recommends Mechanical Peels for:

  • improving skin softness
  • skin texture and tone
  • crepey skin
  • fine lines and wrinkles
  • acne scarring
  • restoring a youthful glow
  • mature skin
  • face, eyes, mouth, neck, chest, hands

What can you expect:

Clarity's medical staff will thoroughly clean and assess your skin. We will remove any impurities prior to the procedure.


A sterile blade-like instrument is "dragged" over skin effectively scrapping off dead surface skin and fine facial hair.  It is a simple and painless treatment.  Skin may be red following treatment and will subside within 1-2 hours.  Your skin will glow.  Results are immediate


A topical anesthetic is applied to skin to minimize discomfort.  The sterile multi-needle head is applied to skin in a very precise and controlled manner.  This perforates the skin causing "controlled damage".  This triggers the body to send extra collagen to the area to help it heal.  Results are gradual, Most skin challenges require a series of treatments over the course of 4-5 months.  Post treatment skin will be very red with some pinpoint bleeding.  This typically subsides in 1-2 days.  

At Clarity we understand most patients do not have the luxury of downtime.  We carry Oxygenetix "medical makeup", an all-in-one camouflaging foundation/moisturizer/ SPF, loaded with nutrients clinically proven to speed up the healing process. This miracle worker really does hide the telltale redness present after procedures.
