Revealing youthful skin from underneath.
What exactly is inside a chemical peel?
There are two types of chemical peels:
1. AHA Chemical Peels
Alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that is a naturally derived water soluble substance.
Glycolic Acid: A type of AHA that can treat psoriasis, melasma and seborrheic keratosis. It assists in collagen production to fill up the skin and smooth skin's complexion.
Lactic Acid: Another type of AHAs that is sourced from dairy products. They are one of the more gentle on the skin while still having a great resurfacing of the skin to stimulate cell renewal. They also help improve the skin's natural moisture factor to improve skin health.
2. BHA Chemical Peels
Beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) that is also naturally derived, but an oil-soluble substance.
Salicylic acid: the most common BHA that is known to treat acne but also works as an anti-inflammatory substance to calm down general redness. It helps dissolve oils in the skin reducing black heads, white heads and well as other hardened sebum particles that may be causing uneven skin texture and tone.
