A superficial chemical peel treatment is the application of acids which cause exfoliation and accelerate the removal of dead skin cells. They have been shown to prevent breakdown of collagen and stimulate the process of natural skin renewal. Unlike the deeper phenol of TCA peel, the depth of penetration is kept to the epidermal or superficial dermis, eliminating the crusting or peeling that may happen with deeper peels.
Naturally derived compounds: glycolic from sugar cane and lactic from sour milk, may slow the skin’s aging process. Our philosophy is to tailor treatments to individual needs and to increase concentrations to the maximum tolerated by the individual’s skin.
Naturally derived from the bark of the willow tree, salicylic acid is formulated with patented microsponge technology which enables the acid to reach the smallest crevice on the skin’s surface.
