The MicroPeel procedure is a three-step clinical procedure combining dermaplaning, a chemical peel and cryogenic therapy (CO2) to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, laxity, dullness, and skin imperfections. For best results, two series of 4-6 procedures per year are recommended.

The Three Steps of The Skinceuticals MicroPeel:


Dermaplaning is a gentle skin resurfacing procedure that uses a special surgical blade to remove the top layer of dead skin cells. As an added bonus, it also removes facial hair—a great procedure for people wanting to remove lighter-colored facial hair or “peach fuzz.” You end up with very smooth-looking, glowing skin. When used as the first step of the Micropeel, the removal of the dead skin cells not only allows for cell renewal, but also allows for better penetration of the chemical peel, which is customized for your skin type and skincare needs, as the second step of the Micropeel.

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 imperfections.

Cyrogenic Therapy

This is a clinical skin freezing procedure (a small ball of CO2 is drawn rapidly over the face) used to immediately increase the rate of the skin cell turnover. This causes sun-damaged cells to be shed, more even skin tone, and pores to appear smaller. Due to its low temperature, this anti-bacterial treatment sanitizes skin and shows an anti-inflammatory response calming inflamed skin. Repeated cryogenic therapy treatments help direct cells into a more normal growth pattern. This results in noticeably smoother skin texture and a radiant glow.

The Benefits:

  • Improves skin texture and radiance
  • Supports healthy collagen levels for firmer skin
  • Accelerates skin’s natural exfoliation process
  • Stimulates collagen synthesis and remodels existing collagen and elastin
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Softens and smoothes skin
