Peels and Masks

peels headerPeels and Masks

Our rejuvenating treatments deliver clinical results and are always customized for your skin concerns and goals. They address uneven skin tone and reveal fresh new skin with decreased appearance of fine lines, discoloration, scars, and/or acne.

Our SkinMedica and LeReve chemical peels remove the top cell layers of the skin to expose a fresh, more refined surface. Because skin is so new, it is essential to commit to a regimen of sun protection after treatment, whether that is sun avoidance, hats, and/or sunscreen application.

We also offer a selection of enzyme treatments as a substitution for peeling solutions which may be used during facials or for those with sensitive skin.

Guys will appreciate better shaves after treatments as well. Peels remove dead skin and reduce the appearance of active acne, leading to a closer shave, plus they reduce in-grown hairs, so less bumps and razor burn.

This depigmentation system targets hyperpigmentation, dark spots, large pores, melisma, and scarred or dull skin. Retinol and salicylic acid stimulate cell turnover and exfoliates upper skin surface while hydroquinone, vitamin C, and kojic acid work on pigmentation at the lower dermal level.

At your appointment, your skin will be prepared for treatment and a peeling mask will be applied. You will remove the mask yourself at home after eight to twelve hours. For four to eight weeks you will use a patient home care regimen consisting of targeted serums, a cleanser, balm, and sunscreen.

I love Hayes Valley Medical and Esthetics! I've been coming for a while now for Botox and filler treatments. Linda is AMAZING! She knows just the right amount of product needed in all the right places to bring out my best facial features. I feel more handsome every time!!

The front desk staff are super sweet and helpful. They always ask exactly what I want and I never feel like I'm being 'upsold' or encouraged to do anything other than what I came in for. I would highly recommend HVME to anybody that is on the unsure about trying some of the services they offer. You won't be disappointed. Thank you!!

I saw Cherie for some Botox and here we are, two days later, and it looks perfect! I know Botox sometimes takes anywhere between a few days to a week or so to totally take effect, so I can't imagine it looking any better than where it's already at. I'm very happy w/ my result. I will definitely be back!

Sheila and Linda took great care of me and I look younger and vibrant.  I do not trust anyone else for injectables.  Linda is careful, thoughtful, and respectful of one’s budget. I have followed her from Marin into SF and I will continue to follow her where ever she practices.
