Once you hit your 30s, it takes about 30 to 40 days for the outermost layer of your skin to shed and get replaced with fresher, healthier cells.
A process that once took just 3 weeks in your teens, skin cell turnover becomes slower and slower as you age. Once you enter your 50s and beyond, the process can take as long as 3 months. This means that complexion imperfections, such as pigmentation irregularities, roughness and wrinkles, can all develop faster and remain visible for a longer time.
Exfoliation with a chemical peel can dramatically speed up the skin cell turnover process. A single treatment removes the upper layers so that newer, healthier cells can take their place. Chemical peels also remove any dirt and debris that get trapped in your pores at the same time. The result is a smoother and healthier complexion that is more uniform and less prone to breakouts.
At AUSTEX, we offer a variety of therapeutic chemical peels that have been clinically proven by numerous scientific studies to rejuvenate, restore and repair aging and problem skin.
Each of our chemical peels features pharmaceutical-grade ingredients that are powerfully effective in skin rejuvenation.

Vi Peels come in different formulations, so we’ll make sure to choose the right one for your skin.
SkinMedica Vitalize Peel
This peel helps to erase the effects of time by lessening fine lines and improving overall skin texture. Its unique blend of alpha-hydroxy, beta-hydroxy, resorcinol and retinoic acids have all been clinically proven to improve hyperpigmentation and reverse the signs of sun damage. You’ll be able to see a noticeable improvement after only one peel, and dramatic results after a series of peels. Because Vitalize is formulated with medical-grade ingredients, only a licensed medical esthetician or medical professional can perform this peel, which is exactly who performs it at our physician-directed facility.
SkinMedica Illuminize Peel
Often called the “Red Carpet Peel”, Illuminize Peel from SkinMedica is a superficial peel that utilizes gentler alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA) to maximize your skin rejuvenating effects with minimal irritation and down time. A single peel will brighten your complexion and make it look and feel more uniform. It’s a great “glow and go” treatment to help you look your best for that big event or date.
SkinMedica Rejuvenize Peel
This peel is the deepest in the SkinMedica line, penetrating into the skin to produce significant results with minimal irritation. Results can be seen after just one peel, although 3-6 may be required for optimal improvement. This peel helps improve acne and melasma and significantly decrease the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Suitable for all skin types, moderate to severe skin imperfections can be targeted.
