Skin Peels, Products, and Services
Living on the coast and being exposed to the sun accelerates the aging process. You may see wrinkles; spots and sensitivities increase at the end of each summer season. We encourage you to set back the clock at the Summit. We offer a variety of skin care products and treatments to meet your individual goals.
A chemical peel can remove age spots, soften or eliminate wrinkles, and have a shrink-wrap effect. If you want to treat sun damage or precancerous lesions, you may be a candidate for blue light therapy. We recommend that you start with a cosmetic consultation with one of our providers. There is no charge for this visit and it is a great way to gather information about your skin. Let us formulate a plan specifically for your skin type and goals. There is no substitution for experience and options. At the Summit you benefit from having dermatology, plastic surgery, and aesthetic skin care experts at your fingertips.
Chemical peels use a medical grade solution to treat a number of skin conditions including, sun damage, uneven skin tone, fine lines, acne and acne scarring. This is a simple, non-surgical way to achieve a smooth, healthy glow.
