What is Chemical Exfoliation?
Chemical Exfoliation gently removes the outermost layers of the skin using various acids derived from fruit, milk or sugarcane or a hydrid of organic acids to reveal newer, brighter, healthier-looking skin.
Chemical Exfoliation Results
Treatments target sunspots, pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, acne and acne scarring as well as improve skin tone.
Chemical exfoliation treatments may be repeated as often as weekly to every 3-5 weeks depending on the strength of the acid used.
Types of peels available:
Lactic – a gentle peel safe enough for weekly use to enhance the performance of home-care products. Safe for pregnant or nursing women or those with sensitive skin or an allergy to aspirin. Typically there is no overt peeling with a Lactic peel.
Glycolactic – a blend of glycolic and lactic acids that refine the appearance of wrinkles, texture and skin tone. Decreases existing and prevents new acne lesions. A series of three to six peels every two weeks is recommended for best results.
