Micropeel Information

The MicroPeel procedure is a three-step clinical procedure combining Dermaplaning, chemical peeling and cryogenic therapy to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, laxity, dullness, and skin imperfections. For optimal results, two series of 4-6 procedures per year are recommended.


The 3 steps of the Skinceuticals MicroPeel:

  1. Dermaplaning – A manual exfoliation technique that safely and efficiently removes surface debris with a Dermaplaning blade, priming the skin for the chemical peel solution.

  2. Chemical Peels – Using optimized solutions formulated for resurfacing the skin by removing the outer epidermis and stimulating collagen remodeling to improve hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, texture and skin impurities.

  3. Cryogenic Therapy – This anti-inflammatory and antibacterial freezing procedure increases the rate of cell turnover and leaves skin feeling cool and tight.

  • Supports healthy collagen levels for firmer skin
