Aesthetic Services

Your skin is a unique and very complex organ, so we are pleased to offer a wide variety of treatments. During your consultation, we will assess your skin and consider your desired results in order to tailor a treatment program for your individual needs. Options include chemical peels and peel alternatives. We also offer add-ons for extra exfoliation, as well as permanent hair reduction, and temporary hair removal and tinting.

Chemical Peels

If the surface layers of your skin are damaged, wrinkled or discolored, or if you have skin growths or acne scars, a chemical peel procedure performed by our experienced staff may be the right choice for you. You may also want to consider our peel alternatives and add-on treatments.

Our peels are applied in layers, and are designed to correct, exfoliate, restore and protect your skin. There is no anesthesia required, and the entire procedure takes as little as 15 minutes to just over an hour.

We offer a free consultation to assess your skin, discuss your concerns, and develop a treatment program tailored for your individual needs. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.

Our chemical peel options include:

Jessner’s and TCA Chemical Peels. As a combination, these peels offer a medium-depth chemical peel. The Jessner’s Peel has been used for over 100 years and combines resorcinol (a derivative of phenol), lactic acid and salicylic acid, resulting in deeper penetration and greater exfoliation of the outer layers of skin cells. They are very effective in the treatment of mild to severe acne, discoloration, moderate wrinkling and sun damage. The Jessner’s Peel is very beneficial for patients with acne, oily prone skin, clogged pores, or thicker skin. Recovery involves flaking and exfoliation for three to four days after the peel, and smoother, healthier skin within a week.

Vi Peel. The Vi Peel contains a synergistic blend of TCA, Retin-A, salicylic acid, phenol and vitamin C. This medium-depth peel provides dramatic results with virtually no pain, no skin preparation, and only about one week of downtime. This peel is effective for sun damage, acne, hyperpigmentation and rosacea.

Neostrata Glycolic Acid Peels. Glycolic acid peels are superficial chemical peels that are safe and effective with minimal post-peel recovery time. They can be used to treat the skin of the face, back of the hand, chest and neck. Glycolic acid peels have been used in dermatology for over two decades for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, improving complexion, skin texture, and dyspigmentation caused by sun damage. Comesis studies show that they may reverse photo damage (sun damage) and actinic keratosis in some patients.

Modified and Enhanced Jessner’s Peels. We have three varieties of these gentle and innovatively blended formulations. They effectively soften surface texture while brightening skin and inhibiting discoloration. They are intended for more oily skin and improve acne as well.

  • PCA Peel hydroquinone free. This formula is ideal for sensitive and ethnic skin types. It will help unclog pores, improve acne and rejuvenate the skin.  
  • PCA Peel with hydroquinone. This formula will help lighten dark spots (from sun damage, aging, melasma, etc.), inhibit acne, and leave the skin firmer and smoother.
  • PCA Peel with hydroquinone and resorcinol. The most active of the three PCA Peel formulas, this peel will even skin tone and provide more exfoliation for oilier, thicker and more resilient skin types. It is effective for improving active acne, highly sun-damaged and thickened skin.

Blended TCA Peels. These skin-friendly, yet effective, peels address many skin conditions without the discomfort and downtime associated with the traditional TCA peels. Our blended TCA peels are exceptional for the treatment of acne, skin discoloration, and fine lines and wrinkles, while leaving the skin plump and hydrated. This group is very good for drier skin and contains a range of options from very gentle for sensitive or darker skin types, to more active formulations for resilient skin and skin on the body.

  • Sensi Peel. This gentle formulation will strengthen and brighten the skin while helping to treat sun damage and other hyperpigmentation (dark spots). This multi-faceted treatment also provides anti-inflammatory, anti-acne and antibacterial action, making it an excellent choice for extremely sensitive skin. It is also very helpful for calming rosacea.
  • Ultra Peel I. This treatment is specially formulated to gently treat dehydrated, menopausal and mature skin. It will help treat pigment disorders, fine lines and wrinkles, sun-damaged skin and acne. Overall, the final result will be plump, hydrated and ultra-soft skin.  

Peel Alternatives

In addition to our chemical peels, we also offer peel alternatives including:

Microneedling. This is our newest anti-aging, collagen induction therapy. By creating numerous tiny microchannels on the surface of the skin, our body is stimulated to produce new collagen and revive the treatment site. The microchannels allow topical products, which supply necessary nutrients, to pass through the treatment area and rapidly improve the appearance of the skin. Call for a free consult. Cost is $300 per session, or book with a dermaplanning treatment for $350.

Dermaplanning. This procedure removes the fine “peach fuzz” from the face and at the same time does a surface exfoliation. Cost is $100 per treatment, or book with a microneedling session for $350.

Alyeska Facial. Everyone can benefit from a facial, which enhance skin appearance and stimulate muscle tone in the face. Besides soothing and calming, facials facilitate skin hydration and relaxation, both of which are essential in a cold, dry climate such as Alaska. Extractions are limited during this facial.

Detox Gel Deep Pore/Acne Treatment. This is an excellent choice for detoxifying all skin types. Its penetrating action helps dissolve debris-clogged pores, soften blackheads, kill bacteria, and reduce inflammation and rough surface texture. After the skin is purged of impurities, it is left hydrated, purified and clearer.

Pumpkin Treatment. This powerful antioxidant treatment brightens and rejuvenates, leaving smoother skin texture by removing dead surface cells that cause rough texture. It also infuses vitamins, enzymes and nutrients into your skin, resulting in a healthy glow, with little to no post-treatment exfoliation.

Microdermabrasion. This treatment is used to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells. It is an exfoliation process beneficial for superficial acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, photo damage (sun damage) and fine lines.

Aesthetic Add-On Treatments

We are pleased to offer several options that you can add on during your aesthetic treatment.

Advanced Treatment Booster. Add this treatment to any peel for just $25-$75. Our advanced treatment booster soothes the sensation of the chemical peel, increases chemical peel exfoliation, and accelerates the healing process.

Neck or chest peel. Add a neck or chest peel to a face peel treatment.
