Glycolic & Salicylic Acid Treatments

DSC02769Both Glycolic and Salicylic Acid Facial Peels will give your skin an immediate lift with no down time, cleansing and exfoliating your skin so that it feels softer and smoother and is more radiant. Peels brighten dull skin, reduce inflammation, tighten pores and help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When used as part of an overall regimen, these facial peels are an effective treatment for acne, blackheads, milia, and skin discolorations such as brown spots.

GLYCOLIC ACID FACIAL PEELS: Derived from fruit, glycolic acid is the most famous alpha hydroxyl acid because in cosmetic preparations and treatments, it improves skin appearance by reducing inflammation, improving skin texture, and optimizing moisturization. We treat many of our acne patients with a glycolic acid treatment followed by a thorough acne cleaning which is beneficial in clearing their complexions. We offer glycolic peels in 2 strengths 50% and 70%.

THERAPLEX® SA FACIAL PEELS: The exfolliant properties of a medical grade salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid) make this peel beneficial in improving and renewing the skin. Dead skin cells are lifted from the skin’s surface triggering cellular renewal and bringing healthy young cells to the surface. Immediately after the peel, your skin will feel smoother and tighter giving your skin a clearer, healthier and more youthful appearance. We offer this peel in two strengths 20% and 30%. Over-the-counter salicylic acid peels are 2% or less.
