What is a Medium Peel and What Does It Do?
Tap into your face’s natural healing power with our Mod Facial Medium Peel modality! This chemical peel treatment delves deeper than superficial or light peels and targets the outer to middle layers of the skin to remove damaged skin cells and promote the shedding of dull outer layers.
This process resurfaces the skin and alleviates more pronounced skin imperfections such as age spots, fine lines, freckles, and moderate skin discoloration. The Medium Peel modality also prompts the body’s natural healing processes, eventually revealing rejuvenated, smoother, and younger-looking skin underneath.

What Should I Expect During My Medium Peel Appointment?
During your visit to our modern facial spa for your facial with a Medium Peel, you’ll connect with one of our Mod Facial skincare professionals to assess you skin and ensure the modality you’ve chosen is right for you.
The treatment begins with a thorough cleansing of your face, ensuring all dirt and oils are adequately removed. Your esthetician will then apply the medium chemical peel solution. As the solution works its magic, you might experience a stinging or tingling sensation, which is normal for this type of skincare treatment. After allowing the peel to settle for the stipulated time, the esthetician will neutralize and remove it. They will then apply a soothing moisturizer and broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your newly sensitive skin from UV rays.
In addition to your facial with the Medium Peel modality, all Mod Facial services include the following:
- Skin analysis
- Optional extractions
- Hot Towels
- Oxygen Serum/Mask
Is a Medium Peel Right For Me?
The Mod Facial Medium Peel modality caters to a broad range of skin types and concerns but may not be right for every guest. They are ideal for those with fair skin and light hair, though individuals with darker skin can also achieve favorable results. If you have moderate skin discoloration, deep facial wrinkles, age spots, freckles, blotchiness, acne or acne scars, then a medium peel could be the right skincare solution for you.
