A medical spa, or med spa, is like a cross between a day spa and a medical clinic. It offers a wide array of cosmetic procedures, like a day spa. It is managed and staffed by medical professionals, like a medical clinic. A medical spa can offer prescription-strength products and cosmetic procedures, like micro-needling or ThermiSmooth®. The medical staff can advise clients on which procedures and regimens would help them the most. For example, someone with mild skin problems might benefit from micro-needling, while a client with more severe problems might need a peel.

What is the Youthtopia Signature Peel?
The Youthtopia Signature Peel is one of our spa’s most popular services, and it is particularly effective at treating discolored or roughened skin. The client will first consult with one of our staff members to have their skin analyzed and determine if the Youthtopia Signature Peel is an appropriate treatment for them.
During this type of peel, our specialist will apply a Jessners peel and follow it up with an application of retinoic acid. The skin will be cleansed beforehand with a special solution to remove any grease and oil. The specialist may apply the peel solution working from the forehead down to the chin. A second layer of peel may be applied after waiting five minutes.
The recovery time can last for three to seven days. During that time, the patient’s skin will flake and peel as if they had a sunburn. The results of these types of peels can last up to six months.
What is a Jessners Peel?
A Jessners peel is a superficial to medium peel that is made from salicylic acid, retinoic acid, resorcinol, panthenol and lactic acid. It was first developed over 100 years ago by Dr. Max Jessner. He was a Navy doctor who originally used it as an antiseptic for submarine crews.
