Deep chemical peels are the cosmetic industry’s best-kept secret and may hold the key to younger, healthier looking skin at any age. Performed by trusted plastic surgeon Dr. Deborah Pan, the Esana deep chemical peel offered by New Haven’s Esana MedSpa is one of the most effective treatments available.

5 Treatments That Heal Summer Sun Damage

If you spent your days feeling the sand beneath your toes and the warm sunshiny rays on your face all summer long, you’re probably feeling great. But your skin may not be! You see, elements like sun, heat, sand, chlorine, salt water, etc., can actually cause your skin to withhold an additional layer of dead skin as a method of protection which leads to a dull appearance. Plus, they just generally irritate and dehydrate your skin.

So, how do you prep to enter a new season looking as refreshed as you feel? Rejuvenating skin treatments!

Elevate Your Natural Beauty with Teoxane® Collection Fillers at ESANA

As we go through the motions of life we experience many emotions—joy, sadness, stress, relaxation, the list goes on. When experiencing those emotions, your facial features adapt to your mood, with millions of micro-movements you don’t even realize you’re making. While those moments are key to our expression and life experience, those repetitive movements, while ever so small, are what contribute to our lines and wrinkles as we age.

That’s why ESANA is so thrilled to be launching state-of-the-art adaptive fillers from the Teoxane® Collection. This exclusive collection of fillers is the only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based filler for treatment of the wrinkles and folds that form and shift during daily dynamic movements. So how is the Teoxane ® Collection different? Let’s take a look…

Clean Fillers Crafted for Natural, Long-Lasting, Personalized Results

While most want to feel and look younger, most don’t want to appear stiff or unnatural. You want to be able to express your emotions freely, while also looking and feeling like a younger version of yourself. That’s what we love about Teoxane ® Collection.

Utilizing a gentle and clean manufacturing process, the hyaluronic acid in the Teoxane ® Collection is formulated to match the natural composition of the hyaluronic acid already found in your skin. It is designed to mirror the movement and structure your body emulates, unlike any other filler. It’s a truly revolutionary advancement for natural filler technology. Part of the beauty of the Teoxane ® Collection is that there are three different formulas. Each formula is crafted to meet the needs of different individuals. No two faces are the same, so why should their filler treatment be?

You can rest assured that you’re receiving a treatment that will match the needs of your body. The best part? Results are immediate and last between 6 and 12 months depending on how quickly your body breaks it down.

Make Your Appointment for Teoxane® Collection Fillers at ESANA Today

VI Peels: March into Spring with Your Best Skin

Did you know that many Americans are self-conscious when it comes to their skin? If your confidence is being shaken by undesirable changes in your skin complexion, you’re not alone.

By now, you are probably familiar with chemical peel renewal treatments that work to exfoliate the skin and produce a healthier, rejuvenated, younger-appearing complexion. However, some chemical peels can be harsh and result in a lot of downtime. Luckily, not all peels are the same! We’re pleased to share VI Peels with our Esana patients!

This non-invasive treatment is virtually painless, requires no skin preconditioning and minimal downtime. They also have vitamins and minerals which nurture the skin while the skin is exfoliating. These peels are practical, affordable, and are one of the safest and most effective chemical peels for a range of skin types.

Whether you suffer from acne, melasma, wrinkles from sun damage or aging, rosacea, skin pigmentation issues, or other common skin concerns, VI Peels could be the secret weapon that will have you finally showing off your skin, rather than hiding it.


  • Restores a more even skin tone
  • Smooths away rough skin
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles


  • Safe for all skin types
  • Medium-depth peel
  • Results within 7 days

The Magic of VI Peels for Facial Rejuvenation
If you’ve never had a chemical peel before, or if you’re a chemical peel aficionado looking to try a new, cutting-edge treatment option, VI Peels are one of the leading chemical peel treatment options for all ages.

The scientifically-engineered solution used for the VI Peel is made up of a distinctive blend of rich vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C and salicylic acid, that is unlike any other chemical peel formula. Our skilled aestheticians will apply the solution directly to the skin to treat skin safely while removing layers of skin virtually pain-free. The ultimate goal of the treatment is to restore youthful tone and texture on your face, neck, and chest without the need for an invasive procedure.

Typically, treatments last only 30-minutes and there’s minimal to no downtime after the procedure. You will experience the common post-chemical peel side effects like skin peeling, but it’s similar to experiencing the aftermath of a sunburn. You’ll feel refreshed in just a few days with profound results that will restore not only your skin health but your confidence as well.
