Chemical peels are used to restore a youthful, vibrant appearance to wrinkly, blotchy, sun-damaged skin. Chemical peels improve acne scars and skin texture, and reduces the effects of sun damage.
Fruit acid is a type of alpha hydroxy acid, or AHA. When applied topically, fruit acids have a rejuvenating effect on skin.
Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid derived from sugar cane and is a fruit acid. It helps to remove the “glue” that holds the older, rougher and dryer skin on the surface. By removing the top layer of skin, the fresh, new layer is visible.
Lactic acid is derived from sour milk. It’s an alpha hydroxy acid like glycolic acid, but is much gentler and helps the skin maintain its ideal PH factor. Lactic acid peels help to remove germs, dead cells and toxins from the skin, leaving the skin feeling smoother. Great for those with sensitive skin.
Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid.
Salicylic acid reduces fine lines and wrinkles, diminishes whiteheads and blackheads, and makes the skin look more toned and even. Great for aged skin.
Chemical Peels are most effective when given in a series of treatments 2 - 6 weeks apart. Receive 4 treatments with the valued price of 3.
