How It Works:
Our facial peels are formulated with organic solutions, such as Glycolic acid (derived from sugar cane) and Salicylic acid (found in Aspirin), and are intended to remove the outermost layers of the skin in order to achieve results such as reduction of facial acne and impurities, brightening dull skin, or soothing sensitive skin from irritation.
To accomplish this task, the chosen peel solution induces a controlled partial-thickness injury to the skin. A “partial-thickness injury” is a wound that penetrates only the top layer of the skin, the epidermis. These wounds tend to heal more quickly and with less risk of scarring, compared to other non-invasive modalities such as laser skin resurfacing or micro-needling. The resulting wound healing process begins to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. For example, in the case of acne-clarifying Salicylic acid it aids in removing and loosening these skin cells and helps to dissovlve blackheads. When the new skin replaces that which was removed, the skin will be healthier and more youthful in appearance.
