Salicylic Acne Peel $85
Salicylic loosens and removes dead cells, oil and debris attached to the skins surface, reducing future breakouts significantly. Salicylic acid penetrates follicles deep down that contain sebum(oil), exfoliates, cleans and removes the impurities responsible for clogged pores. So whether it is your face, chest, shoulders, or back, Salicylic Acne Peels are the preferred choice of treatment for acne. We understand that acne affects more than just the skin!
Glycolic Acid Peel $75
Glyocolic works by loosening the glue-like substances that hold the layers of skin together. The tight binding of these dead cells makes the layers thick which then results in dry, rough scaling skin. When glycolic acid is applied, this glue becomes loosened and the thickened skin is sloughed away. This process leaves the newly revealed skin with a smoother texture and a healthier appearance. Research has shown that repeated applications of glycolic acid may help prevent re-thickening and thereby control dry skin, acne, age spots and maintain a smooth surface in skin prone to superficial wrinkling and fissuring.
Chemical peel treatments can be combined with other skin rejuvenation procedures such as microdermabrasion and laser skin resurfacing for even better results. A series of chemical peels spaced apart over a period of a few months is the best way to achieve long-lasting results and help keep the skin healthy and resilient as it rebuilds collagen.
