Janee has over 12 years of experience in skin care and chemical peels and has earned a reputation of being one of San Diego’s best medical estheticians. We could write a long list of Janee’s accomplishments but one look at her perfect skin will tell you everything you need to know about her expertise.

At our practice Janee will be performing complimentary skin care consultations as well as a variety of medical services listed below. Janee shares in our philosophy of maintenance and prevention as the keys to aging gracefully.

One of Janee’s go-to treatments for building collagen and softening sun damage is the ViPeel. The ViPeel is a medium-depth peel (goes all the way to the dermis) and is a great treatment for all skin types.



1) Glycolic Acid 30-70% Peel

We understand the need to look good without downtime. Dr. Kolstad offers the ideal solution for a busy lifestyle where time off of work or family is not an option. Glycolic acid can be applied to the superficial layers of the skin to exfoliate dead skin cells and build up of keratin. The main advantage of a superficial chemical peel is the lack of downtime associated with the resurfacing. Many patients
schedule the Lunchtime Peel over a lunch break and go back to work the same day.

2) Vitalize Chemical Peel

SkinMedica’s Vitalize Peel is designed to make your skin glow as well as to lighten areas of pigmentation. Most people experience a light peeling that last 48 hours, typically beginning two days after the peel. We recommend having the Vitalize peel applied on Thursday to use the weekend as the anticipated period of peeling.

Penetrating deeper than glycolic acid allows the Vitalize Peel to treat hyperpigmentation, melasma and uneven skin tones more effectively.

3) ViPeel Chemical Peel

The ViPeel contains a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types. This peel helps improve the tone, texture and clarity of the skin. It reduces or eliminates age spots, treats hyperpigmentation, and softens lines and wrinkles.

The ViPeel is an excellent choice to address acne and reduce or eliminate acne scars, while stimulating the production of collagen, for healthier, firmer, more youthful skin. This self-neutralizing peel provides dramatic results with virtually no pain, no skin preparation and minimal downtime. Precision is a booster formulated to be used in addition to the ViPeel. It is made from the same synergistic blend of ingredients as the ViPeel, but at a higher concentration for a treatment that is 25% stronger. Precision is an excellent addition for treating hyperpigmentation, age spots on hands, arms or chest, keratosis pilaris and actinic keratosis.

4) Dermaplaning with a 30% lactic acid to follow

Dermaplaning removes the outer most layers of dead skin cells leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple and vibrant. Dermaplaning (blading) is another non-traumatic method of skin rejuvenation. This method is used to remove vellus hair which is also known as “peach fuzz”. Dermaplaning will not cause the hair to grow back thicker or darker and when followed by a lactic peel it will leave you with soft and glowing skin. Lactic acid is a mild alpha hydroxy acid and there is minimal to zero downtime with this treatment.
