  • Salicylic Acid Peels
  • Glycolic Peels

ALPHA HYDROXY ACID
(GLYCOLIC & LACTIC ACID)

Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (Glycolic and Lactic) are naturally occurring acids derived from the sugars in particular substances. These acids work by dissolving the bond that holds dead skin cells together. This increases cell turnover, and at greater concentrations, deeper dermal effects such as increased collagen synthesis.

The activity of an Alpha Hydroxy Acid involves the concentration of AHA and the pH. Effective concentrations should be at 8% with a pH between 2.5 and 4.0. Lactic acid is a natural humectant and Lactic Acid's larger molecule size makes it less irritating than Glcolic Acid.

SALICYLIC PEEL

Salicylic acid (BHA) is a beta hydroxy acid, which is an antibacterial solution derived from willow bark, wintergreen leaves and birch bark. It is an oil based antiseptic exfoliant that deeply penetrates into in the skin, cleansing the pores of any excess debris and bacteria. Best recommended for acneic skin as it aids in controlling oil production, clearing blemishes, whiteheads and blackheads while reducing inflammation and can improving hyperpigmentation.
