WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL? Medical grade chemical peels, also known as chemexfoliation or derma-peeling, are a technique used to remove the top layers of the skin, creating a healthier, refreshing looking appearance. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which causes it to flake and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin also is temporarily more sensitive to the sun. At Tranquil Waters Med Spa, we utilize a variety of chemical peels for different skin types and conditions.
WHAT CONDITIONS DOES IT TREAT?
Chemical peels are performed on the face, neck, or hands. They can be used to:
Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage, aging, and family history
Improve the appearance of mild scarring
Treat certain types of acne
Reduce age spots, freckles, & dark patches due to pregnancy or birth control pills (melasma)
Improve the look and feel of skin that is dull in texture and color
Areas of sun damage, which may contain pre-cancerous keratosis that appears as scaly spots, may improve after chemical peeling. Following treatment, new pre-cancerous lesions are less likely to appear. However, sags, bulges, and more severe wrinkles do not respond well to chemical peels. They may require other kinds of procedures, such as laser skin resurfacing, Botox or a filler such as Restylane. Our on-site Doctor can help determine the most appropriate type of treatment for each individual case.

WHAT TO EXPECT
During a chemical peel, most patients experience a burning sensation that lasts about five to ten minutes, followed by a stinging sensation. Cool compresses may be applied to help alleviate this stinging.
CHEMICAL PEEL RECOVERY
Depending upon the type of chemical peel, a reaction similar to sunburn occurs following the procedure. Peeling usually involves redness, followed by scaling that ends within three to seven days. Mild peels may be repeated at one to four-week intervals until the desired clinical effect is achieved. You will work with Tranquil Waters Med Spa to determine the depth of your peel. This joint decision can vary, depending upon the condition of your skin and the objectives of treatment. Prior to treatment, it is important to inform Tranquil Waters Med Spa of any past history of keloids (scar tissue overgrowth created at the site of a skin injury) or unusual scarring tendencies, as well as any history of X-rays treatments to the face or recurring cold sores.

I had been on pins and needles with excitement awaiting the opening of this place. There are other med Spas in and around the valley, But how nice it is knowing that I don’t have to travel outside of my own community to get great skin treatments. The esthetician, Mai treated me with a Dermaplaning facial, and what an “out of this world” experience it was. Believe me when I say she has the hands of an Angel. I was so relaxed and in need of a nap when she finished. The service is Fantastic and the products are wonderful. The owners, Nicolle and Craig Kent have been residents of our community for years. I trust and value their opinion and recommendations for my skincare needs. I encourage anyone interested in improving or simply maintaining your skin health to call for an appointment or stop by for information. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
I had botox placed by Dr Kent, she was friendly and helpful and answered all my questions about my skin. The botox injections were painless and right on target with estimate that was given to me by Craig on my initial call. My initial visit was positive and completed in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend it!
This place is amazing! Mai (like Mai Tai) did a great job on my chemical peel. I suffer from malasma (dark pigments in areas of my face) and some minor acne and this peel combined with the last peel has decreased both significantly. I am going to continue to go back for occasional peels along with other face treatments.
I just got my 2nd botox at this spa and have done a facial with Mai in the past and I am so pleased with their service and how friendly they are. I will definitely be back and let my friends and family know as well. Thank you
Really just love the experience at Tranquil Waters. Excellent service, super clean – very comfortable environment. Taylor is wonderful – super experienced and able to make you feel very comfortable. Owners run a really nice med-spa, definitely recommend.
Went here for Kybella injections instead of plastic surgery for under my chin. Shopped around from different Med Spas, the first one told me $1700, the second told me $1400 and this Med Spa gave me a first time patient special of $1000 for three vile’s. The office was much more spacious and soothing than the others. The owners were more than accommodating and were very professional. With a procedure like this, you need a good experience. I highly recommend Tranquil Waters for any of your beauty needs! They even referred a plastic surgeon in Scottsdale for my other facial needs. I am going to look like Miss America!
Great experience. No hard up sell and gave a simple recommendation. I would absolutely use them again.
Mai does an amazing job!!!
I had been getting botox and fillers from a large clinic in Scottsdale so was a bit nervous about changing locations but liked that this spa is close to where I live and I was impressed after reading Dr. Kent’s credentials. After my detailed consultation with her I signed up for both botox and filler and was very pleased with the results and happy that she is able to provide similar lower priced botox units to what I had been paying at the large facility. She took the time to discuss what we were doing to ensure I got the results I was hoping for and was very careful in my treatment. I plan to continue getting my treatments from her and would recommend Dr. Kent to others.
Amazing all around. Their LaserTech is wonderful, I love the price and effect of Clear lift. And I don’t trust ANYONE other than Dr. Kent for any injections. Botox, Juvéderm…. Why have anyone other than an actual Doctor with years of experience working on your face? Her entire staff is amazing… I’m 58 years old and I’m time consistently that I look 40. Even my family doesn’t know.
This Med Spa is awesome. I have been to other med Spas in the past but none of them compare to Tranquil Waters. The staff are super friendly and well trained and the Doctor is fantastic, she provides you a ton of education and is a perfectionist when it come to performing all her treatments. I have had several different treatments which include a Fabulous Facial with Mai the esthetician as well as several sessions of Body Sculpting. I tried body sculpting with another med spa which did absolutely nothing but after one treatment here, I could see immediate results on the back of my thighs. It was amazing. I would highly recommend trying this med spa as I am hooked and look forward to trying other treatments they offer.
I love this place. Dr Kent is knowledgeable on anti-aging and Taylor is an awesome aesthetician
Fantastic experience! Taylor took good care of me and gave my skin some much needed love. I can’t wait to go back and try more treatments. Highly recommend
I can’t possibly say enough positive things about my experience with having PRP injections! Here it goes: Dr. Kent is very detail oriented. It was evident that her skill level was high. She is a brilliant doctor who has amazing credentials. She has great skin which is a testament to the procedures she offers. AND she does not fall short in the sense of humor department. She is the only person who has ever made me laugh while sticking needles in my face! AND their prices are as good as they get. I will definitely return for more of the same.
Great service and great results. Have been here for massage, hair removal and facials. Completely satisfied with every service and looking forward to treating myself better with the help of the staff at this spa. They’re friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
Fantastic experience!!!! I’m hooked!!! In fact I went in for a “Clearlift” and before I left I made an appointment for Botox!!
Jess is amazing! The best massage therapist I’ve ever had. Her body wraps are on point. I’ve never meet a therapist so caring and thoroughly enjoy her job more. She is extremely attentive and so easy to talk too. She listens to your issues and address it to the highest level of quality. I highly recommend any service that Jess does.
It was my first time ever doing laser and Taylor was excellent at answering questions and walking me through the process. I was pleasantly surprised with very minimal discomfort (almost none) and look forward to my next sessions.
This med spa is top-notch. It was super clean and professional. Everyone was knowledgeable and friendly. I will definitely purchase other services from this med spa! You won’t be disappointed!
The atmosphere is great and Taylor is knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend.
I love Tranquil Waters Med Spa, super nice staff and doctors. Dr Kent is super, she is very professional and does an amazing job and with little to no pain at all getting botox and juvederm. 5 stars!!!!
I would recommend Tranquil Spa to everyone. They are so professional. Very clean, very warm and made me feel very comfortable. The Dr. is AMAZING. Don’t wait. Go now. Anything you can get from this company is a total steal.
I love this place. Dr Kent is knowledgeable on anti-aging and Taylor is an awesome aesthetician
