The BioSpa Newport Beach offers medical chemical peels varying in strength from mild to intensive.

Mild Chemical Peels

  • BioSpa® Signature Peel – Our exclusive peel is intended for all skin types and requires no-downtime! It includes a thorough cleanse and exfoliating scrub and a fruit-based enzyme masque ( pumpkin) that provides anti-oxidants and the ability to cleanse and tighten pores. 50 minute treatment time.
  • ZO® Ultra Hydration Peel – Hydrate and rejuvenate moisture depleted skin. 50 min treatment time.
  • ZO® Skin Brightening Peel – Restore skin clarity, reduce pigment spots and discoloration. Increases skin brightness, clarity, and minimizes pore size. 50 minute treatment time.

  • ZO® Stimulator Peel – The perfect “lunch time” peel with no-downtime and only a 30 minute treatment time. This beta/alpha acid spa peel stimulates cellular turnover, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and improving overall skin tone, texture and clarity without downtime. A great peel to have done every few weeks as part of your skin health maintenance. 30 minute treatment time.

We generally recommend the above peels be done in a series of 3 -6 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart for optimal results.

Moderate Chemical Peels

Promotes softer, smoother skin Formulated by Dr. Zein Obagi, these proprietary solutions stimulate the growth of healthy skin cells and quickly shed away damaged skin layers. Dramatic improvements are noticeable after a single treatment. 30 minute treatment time. A series of 3 peels spaced out every 3-4 weeks is usually recommended for optimal results. *4-5 days of mild exfoliation similar to a sunburn*

Intensive Chemical Peels and Other Facial Treatments

  • ZO® Controlled Depth Blue Peel – Uses TCA 30% (trichloracetic acid) to medically treat skin conditions such as acne, wrinkles, fine lines, skin pigmentation disorders, sun damage, and poor skin texture. Drs Horowitz and Nichter frequently combine the Controlled Depth Blue Peel with the LiftLift™ facelift. Both can be done at the same time and allows the patient to go through just one healing process. Pre-conditioning skin with ZO® Skin Health products before treatment and a specific after-care protocol for up to 7 days will be necessary. 45 minute treatment time. 1 peel is generally needed, however in severe cases a second peel may be necessary. *Up to 2 weeks of downtime* Read more about the Controlled Depth Peel.

PDT is the process of applying Minolevulanic acid (ALA) or Levulan to the face, which is a naturally occurring substance in the skin. The ALA requires an incubation period of approx. 70 minutes. The ALA is then activated with a blue light for approximately 30 minutes. Total treatment time varies depending on the size of the area being treated and the severity of the condition. Average treatment time 90 minutes. A series of tis usually needed for best result. *4-5 days of downtime*
