Pharmaceutical Grade Peels
Don’t let the word “peel” scare you. Fruit acids, acids from sugar cane, and pineapple enzymes are all considered peels. A chemical peel is just a way of exfoliating skin off the surface by dissolving dead skin cells (verses a physical peel which uses beads and hulls to manually remove the skin). Chemical peels range in concentration and depending on which acids are used, have different attributes. Scroll down for more information on our new organic peels and what acids are used for different skin conditions. For our October Special we are offering a Glymed Plus 30% Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) Peel which consists of 15% Glycolic and 15% Lactic. It is a 3.4 pH which means it will not dry your skin too much but, rather, is hydrating! If you have never had a peel, we may just apply this one layer. If you are ready to move on to treating hyperpigmentation and fine lines, we will apply the 2 leave-on peel layers at the end of the facial: the Glymed Plus 5 Berry Peel with 15% TCA and berries to lighten pigmentation (this one doesn’t make you peel), and the Glymed Plus Vitamin A Peel with 15% TCA and Vitamin A (which DOES make you peel). As you can see this treatment is customized to your skin and what you want out of it.
The NEW Eminence Organics Exfoliating Peels have quickly found their way into our hearts (and our at home skin regimens). There are 4 peels to choose from: Firm Skin, Bright Skin, Clear Skin, and Calm Skin. They are ingenious because they pair acids that help each skin condition with botanicals to support each condition.
Directions for application: Every other evening after cleansing, apply on face and neck using 2 pumps from the airless jar on cotton round (included), let absorb for 3 minutes, do not remove, apply eye cream, night serum, and night cream.
