One of the most effective skin care products for facial wrinkles is the chemical peel. Chemical peels provide deep exfoliation to strip away dead skin. The main active ingredients in our chemical peels are mild acids, and include:
- Glycolic Acid—a superficial peeling agent naturally derived from sugar cane, glycolic acid improves overall skin health, decreases facial wrinkles, and minimizes age spots and hyperpigmentation. It rejuvenates the skin’s surface by infusing alpha-hydroxy acids that stimulate collagen and elastin growth, accelerating the skin renewal process.
- Salicylic Acid—this acid loosens and removes cells, oils, and debris attached to the skin’s surface and embedded in the pores. Salicylic acid is oil-soluble, allowing it to penetrate sebum-filled follicles and pores. Like glycolic acid, it stimulates new skin cell production and increases collagen formation, resulting in marked improvement for acne-prone skin while reducing wrinkles, evening skin tone, and shrinking enlarged pores.
- Lactic Acid—a rapid, non-irritating exfoliant derived from sour milk, lactic acid is ideal for more sensitive skin in cases where glycolic acid might be too intense. Lactic acid peels help eliminate germs and toxins and remove dead skin cells while maintaining a healthy pH balance. Collagen and elastin production is stimulated in the deeper layers of the skin, smoothing, tightening, and firming skin. Skin cell turnover on the surface is accelerated, giving users a more vibrant, youth-infused look.
