Dr. Gretchen Frieling is proud to introduce her own signature line of chemical peels.

Dr. Frieling recommends 3 peels, approximately 4-5 weeks apart, for optimal results.

WHAT IS A

CHEMICAL PEEL?

A chemical peel is used to remove dead skin cells and stimulate new cell growth. It is a liquid that is applied to the skin, face, and neck, that has been specially chosen for your skin type and concerns. It will induce exfoliation and peeling of the skin, which is then replaced by new, smoother and brighter looking skin. Chemical peels can help decrease the appearance of wrinkles, brown spots, and acne. Multiple treatments may be necessary for the best-desired outcome.
