Here at True Beauty Medical Spa, we offer TRU-PEELS. TRU-PEELS are a comprehensive system of peels which improve the skin by removing the damaged outer layers to improve the texture, firmness and tone of the skin with visible results after only one treatment. There are 3 different formulations which are designed to provide a customized treatment based on the needs of your skin. Each contains a synergistic combination of several different acids and exfoliating agents in concentrations that are safe for all skin types. They are designed to treat a variety of conditions including photo damage, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, acne scarring and acne. TRU-PEELS are non-invasive, penetrating the outer skin layers only. They result in smoother, tighter looking skin without surgery.



This is a very superficial chemical peel which maximizes skin rejuvenating effects with low irritation. It increases skin glow and radiance, tightens the skin and restores a more youthful appearance and improves clarity, color and skin texture. It is appropriate for first-time chemical peel patients or patients looking for a gentle peel with little or no down time. It will correct mild photodamage and is ideal for all skin types.


This is a powerful yet non-damaging peel that can take years off of aging skin. It helps fight the effects of time, sun damage, and environmental assaults. It addresses various skin conditions, such as hyperpigmentation, and moderate photodamage while also smoothing fine lines, wrinkles and roughness. It can achieve visible improvement after one treatment and significant results after a series of treatments. It can be customized for the treatment of each specific condition, using retinoic acid and phenol in combination with other mid strength acids to create more exfoliation than other chemical peels of the same depth resulting in more noticeable outcomes. These peels are well tolerated and have little down time. They result in peeling lasting about 2-3 days, beginning a few days after the peel solution has been applied, requiring about 5-7 days for complete healing. The best results are achieved with a series of 3-4 peels, and it is useful on all skin types.


This is the strongest of the peels, having an advanced formulation of peeling agents, with a built-in penetration enhancer that provides controlled exfoliation of the uppermost damaged layers of the skin to reveal fresher and healthier skin. It can be used after a client has demonstrated tolerance to the TRU-PEEL Medium or has conditioned the skin with Retinoids and or hydroquinones. It is useful in clients with significant photodamage, acne scarring and for fine lines and wrinkles. As with the other peels, the best results are seen with a series of 3-6 peels, but improvement is obtained with only one peel. Since this is the deepest of these peels, peeling of the skin lasts about 3-5 days, with complete healing requiring about 7 days. This peel is well tolerated and has minimal down time. It is not suggested for darker skin types.

What will my skin feel like after the procedure?

Most people experience some tightness, tingling and or itching after the procedure. There may also be a light discoloration or redness similar to sun burn. Highly emollient creams and ointments are recommended beginning the day after the procedure. Cold compresses may be used for comfort as well. These creams are applied every 3-4 hours as needed for dryness and itching.

How long does it take to heal?

Most peeling begins 3 or 4 days after the procedure and lasts about 2 days. Light peeling may continue for another day or two. Healing depends on your skin type and the type of peel used.

When can I apply makeup?

Routine skin care products and makeup can be applied the day after the peel. Sunscreens SPF 30 or higher are essential afterwards. Retin A and exfoliating agents should not be used until you are completely healed.

How many treatments are needed?

The best results are achieved with a series of 3-4 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart.

Where can TRU-PEELS be used?

Peels are intended to provide a deeper exfoliation of the skin to remove damaged cells and create a more youthful appearance. Lighter peels can be performed in other areas such as the neck, décolletage, chest, hands and arms. Deeper peels can safely be performed on the face.
