Why does Halcyon Trust SkinCeuticals® Peels?

SkinCeuticals® professional chemical peels are safe and effective customized in-office medical treatments using unbuffered peel solutions that cause skin to exfoliate and shed, resulting in a renewed appearance. They work to diminish visible concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, uneven tone, and texture.

Here are a few of our favorites

Gel Peel:
'The Lunchtime Peel'

Ideal for dry, sun-damaged, and aging skin, Gel Peel GL features a synergistic combination of 20% glycolic acid and 10% lactic acid to exfoliate surface cells, accelerate cellular renewal, reduce irritation, and support the skin’s natural production of structural and moisture-binding proteins.

Ideal for aging and sensitive skin, the gel-based formulation enhances application precision while minimizing pooling and run-off. A series of six treatments is recommended for significant skin improvement.

  • Gel formulation enhances application precision while minimizing pooling and run-off

  • Exfoliates to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while smoothing surface texture

  • Reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone

  • Supports the skin’s natural production of structural proteins

  • Paraben-, and fragrance-free


Dermaplaning is a great treatment add-on to these peels. 

Micropeel® Plus 30


Micropeel® Plus 30 Solutions offers a one-step chemical exfoliation with 30% salicylic acid and 3% glycolic acid plus alcohol to optimize efficacy, stability, and penetration. Ideal for oily and blemish-prone skin, salicylic acid helps dissolve sebum and cellular debris in the pores, provides gentle exfoliation, and encourages cellular renewal. With glycolic acid to improve surface texture, the appearance of hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone, this treatment also helps support the skin’s natural production of structural proteins.

Patients may experience light to moderate peeling as the skin’s natural renewal process occurs. Two to four treatments per year are recommended for optimal outcomes and to maintain results.

  • Helps dissolve sebum and cellular debris to help improve problematic skin

  • Provides thorough exfoliation and accelerates cellular renewal

  • Visibly improves the appearance of pores, surface texture, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone

  • Supports the skin’s natural production of structural proteins

  • Paraben-, and fragrance-free

Smart TCA Peel

Smart TCA Peel is a deep superficial peel to comprehensively exfoliate dead, dry skin cells, and improve advancing signs of aging. Smart TCA Peel significantly improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, laxity, and stubborn discoloration. Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) is known as the gold-standard ingredient in chemical peeling – as it’s a tried-and-tested acid used for decades by doctors. Ideal for all skin types and most skin tones, the Smart TCA Peel features a blend of 15% Trichloroacetic Acid with 3% Glycolic Acid. The Smart TCA Peel in-office treatment features a patented post-peel Restorative Masque to soothe and reduce skin temperature immediately following peel application. This Restorative Masque is patented and exclusive for use post-TCA, with a botanical blend to bind moisture to the skin and prevent loss of hydration.


  • Visibly improves signs of texture and aging, including, fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, and pore size

  • Fades stubborn discoloration and hyperpigmentation

  • The Monodose delivery system provides consistent application and minimized risk of cross-contamination

  • Smart Restorative Masque reduces skin's temperature to improve post-peel comfort

  • Clinically tested on a variety of skin tones, including deeper skin tones (Fitzpatrick I-IV)


After a series of 3 chemical peel treatments – spaced 4 weeks apart – Smart TCA Peel was found to significantly improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, laxity, and pore size.

Advanced Corrective Peel

  • Is this peel for me?
    SkinCeuticals® Advanced Corrective Peel is ideal for people with all skin types concerned with mild to moderate signs of aging, stubborn discoloration, and uneven tone and texture. Advanced Corrective Peel effectively targets discoloration, renewing skin's surface for an overall brighter, more clarified, even skin tone and texture.
  • How will my skin look after the peel?
    Immediately following the peel, skin may appear red and feel sensitive. In the days following the peel, skin may experience some flaking, sheet peeling, and possibly a temporary darkening of surface pigment that will flake off. Once skin has finished exfoliating, it will appear radiant and smooth, with an improvement in overall clarity and even skin tone.
  • Will I peel?
    The degree of peeling and surface pigment darkening will vary based on skin type and skin condition and should not be a factor in determining success of the peel. Factors that can affect variations include: first time peeling, frequency of peels, frequent use of retinoids, frequent use of at-home chemical exfoliants, and resistant skin types.
  • How long will I peel?
    Light flaking or sheet peeling may occur, and can last for 2-6 days depending on the intensity of the treatment. Discuss with your skincare professional in advance to optimize your expected outcome.
  • How often should I receive the Advanced Corrective Peel?
    SkinCeuticals® Advanced Corrective Peel is designed for maximum customization to fit individualized skin needs, and to evolve over time as your treatments and skin concerns change. For optimum results, a series of 4-6 treatments every 4 weeks is recommended. Complement peels with a SkinCeuticals homecare regimen to help reduce down time and enhance long-term results.
