The Kerry Benjamin Skincare Chemical Peel Process
We use a unique and highly specialized process during our facial peels which is second to none in the skincare industry and are the only spa to offer this chemical peel treatment in the Santa Monica area. Our process begins with a relaxing cleanse using top of the line products followed by extractions. Next, we prepare your skin by gently removing the top layer of dead skin cells and infusing corrective serums using the SilkPeel microdermabrasion procedure. This significantly increases the efficacy of the peel by allowing for deeper penetration for your skin to receive the maximum benefits of your customized peel. Then, the peel process begins by layering both the peel that is suitable for your needs along with a custom blend of serums and other treatments that are just right for you. Finally, moisturizer and SPF are applied to seal in the products and protect your skin.

Q. What Chemical Peel Is Best For Me?
AHA (alphahydroxy acid):
AHA’s are one of the most mild peels available and are suitable if you have very sensitive skin or as an introduction to chemical peels. AHA features lactic and glycolic acids which are both found in common foods such as sour milk, tomatoes and cane sugar. The results are a very light peel that is effective in reducing fine lines, dryness, uneven skin tone and acne.
BHA (betahydroxy acid):
An excellent peel for acne prone problem skin, BHA’s penetrate deeper into the pores than AHA’s yet are still considered non-aggressive peels. Featuring salicylic acid, commonly produced by plants, BHA’s help smooth out acne scarred skin, control sebum production and loosen dead skin cells. This is an excellent peel for those looking for immediate results with minimal to no downtime.
Modified Jessner Peel:
Pioneered by Dr. Max Jessner, modified Jessner peels combine salicylic acid, lactic acid and Resorcinol (a mild antiseptic and disinfectant). Jessner Peels are medium to advanced strength peels which penetrate deep below the surface to improve skin from the inside out. Most people will experience very little to no peeling with this treatment but, the results are significant. Excellent for advanced acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun spots, freckles, lip creases and collagen production.
TCA (trichloroacetic acid):
Great for both face, body and those who are looking for the highest level peel with more advanced results. Our TCA peels feature the award winning PCA skin care line and can be boosted with a PCA retinol treatment. Excellent for clients seeking superior results, TCA peels are effective for improving the look of wrinkles, brown spots, acne pitting, scarring and superficial blemishes. TCA peels are also suitable for clients with darker skin tones. All of our peels are customized for each client.
