Weekend Peel


Do you want to improve the appearance of your skin with little to no recovery time? If so, the Weekend Peel is perfect for you.

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel such as the Red Capet Peel is a simple treatment done in the office to improve the appearance of your skin. After your skin is cleaned, a peeling solution is carefully applied to your skin. Over the next few days, the surface layers of your skin will slowly exfoliate, leaving fresh, healthy, and youthful looking skin.

What is a laser peel?

A laser peel like the Micro Laser Peel has a similar effect as a chemical peel. But with a laser peel, a laser is used to remove the surface layers of your skin. This is much more precise and usually has shorter recovery time than a chemical peel.

What is the Weekend Peel?

The Weekend Peel is a laser peel designed by Dr. Alex to give your skin a beautiful and youthful glow with little or no down time. You can do the Weekend Peel on a Friday and look great on Monday. Unlike the Micro Laser Peel, the Weekend Peel is more gentle on your skin and doesn’t require numbing. The Weekend Peel is a modification of the popular Ultra Microneedling treatment with even lighter settings. This gives you similar benefits with reduced recovery time.

What are the benefits of the Weekend Peel?

The Weekend Peel will address a variety of your concerns such as:

  • Uneven color – think dark spots, sun spots, and age spots
  • Rough or irregular skin texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loose or saggy skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks

What can be treated with the Weekend Peel?

The Weekend Peel can be used on just about any area:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Belly
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Back
  • Legs

What happens during the Weekend Peel?

The Weekend Peel is one of the fastest, safest, and easiest treatments we offer. After washing your face and taking baseline pictures to monitor your progress, we’ll clean your skin with special cleansing solutions. Then we place eye shields over your eyes for protection. The Weekend Peel feels like a hot but gentle sensation. We blow cold air on your skin to keep you comfortable. The Weekend Peel treatment itself takes only a couple of minutes. After your Weekend Peel, we’ll apply special aftercare products to help with the healing as well as sunscreen. You can be in an out of the office in about 15 minutes.

When will I see results after my Weekend Peel?

Most people will see a youthful glow on their skin just a few days after their Weekend Peel treatment. The most obvious initial change will be in enlarged pores. For treatment of other concerns such as uneven color, fine lines, deeper wrinkles, and acne scars you’ll want a series of treatments. Dr. Alex recommends a series of six Weekend Peel treatments done once a month. After that you can have one Weekend Peel every three months for maintenance. But the beauty of the Weekend Peel is that it’s such a light treatment that you can continue having one every month to keep your skin looking healthy.
