Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy derived from sugar cane and grapes. It is a natural exfoliant that works by breaking down dead skin cells, which contribute to clogged pores and dull skin. A glycolic peel resurfaces skin and clears away acne-causing oil. Several sessions gradually increase the glow of the skin. The process takes about 15 – 20 minutes and can be repeated as often as once a week. The peel can range from gentle to strong depending on the strength applied. There may be some mild stinging during the treatment and over the next few days mild flaking or peeling may or may not occur. Continued treatments using glycolic acid has been shown to help minimize fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.
Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid that reduces excess sebum, fights bacteria deep within pores and loosens and removes dead skin. It effectively penetrates sebum filled follicles, cleans out clogged pores and is beneficial for acne vulgaris, enlarged pores, rough and oily skin, and congested skin. It is also effective in treating blackheads and whiteheads. Used regularly, salicylic acid aids in the treatment of acne.
Lactic acid, a derivative of milk, is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin to encourage new cell turnover. It improves the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles, and also brightens the skin. It is effective in treating acne, blackheads, whiteheads and dry skin. Lactic acid is a great peel for those with dry and sun damaged skin.
If you could remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells, you would see just below the surface lies a fresher, younger looking face. That’s exactly what Power Peel treatments can do for you. By gently and precisely exfoliating the surface of your skin over a course of sessions, Power Peel treatments whisk away years of dull build-up, revealing brighter, more evenly-toned skin in as little as 4 to 6 treatments.
This process combines microdermabrasion with a light chemical peel, using combination therapy of physical and chemical exfoliation to improve skin texture. Because layers of dead skin cells form a protective covering for bacteria to breed, Power Peels can help in reducing the incidence of breakouts. Power Peels are also indicated for the treatment of superficial lines and wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tones, superficial scars, acne, and acne scarring.
Over four to six appropriately timed treatments, this repeated process stimulates the production of a new layer of skin cells, bringing with it an increased level of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of supple healthy skin. This procedure is safe for all skin types, including Asian and African American skin.
