A lactic peel is your go-to treatment for skin that is dehydrated, discoloured, and showing signs of aging. It’s perfect for all skin types – even the most sensitive – and is the gentlest of all cosmetic chemical peels available. The peeling process of a lactic peel involves alphahydroxy acids (AHA) that effectively exfoliate the skin while reducing the risk of irritation and dryness of the skin.

A lactic peel is a fantastic cosmetic medical peel option for those who are looking to enhance their facial skin without the irritation and discomfort that’s typical with more abrasive peels. The lactic acid used with this type of peel helps to fade age spots, smooth away fine lines, and rehydrate the skin to provide more youthful look!

Glycolic peels are popular among those who are looking to brighten up the skin, and reduce the look of sunspots, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles. This type of peel is a gentle chemical peel version, which involves the use of alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) to help exfoliate the skin and bring about a renewed look.

There’s no need to use abrasive exfoliating methods when you can get virtually the same results through a glycolic peel! The ability for this type of peel to deeply penetrate the skin allows for stimulation of new skin cells and the production of collagen, all while allowing skin care products be more deeply penetrated.

Immediately following treatment, your skin will appear a little red and continue to peel for a few days. Once all skin cells have peeled off, you’ll have smoother, younger-looking skin in as a little as a week!

Salicylic acid’s capacity to deeply penetrate pores makes it a great choice if you are prone to mild and moderate acne vulgaris. Acne eruptions, whiteheads and blackheads can result from dead skin and debris plugging up delicate pores. Salicylic peels help to counteract this to help bring out a much clearer complexion.

The salicylic peel’s effective combination of anti-septic and exfoliating properties will begin to clear out clogged pores, even after one session! While acne breakouts might appear to get worse temporarily, it’s important to note that this is all part of the pore purification process that will inevitably improve your acne conditions, and lead you on the path to beautiful skin!

A Jessner chemical peel is an aggressive treatment of medium depth, which is highly effective at alleviating sun damage, moderate wrinkles, skin discolouration, scarring, melasma and acne. This treatment is particularly helpful for those with oily, acne-prone skin because of its incredible ability to deep clean clogged pores, and because of its key contribution to acne’s healing process. Because of the more aggressive nature of this type of peel, a few days will be required to allow the skin to heal, revealing truly amazing results.

The Jessner peel involves a combination of lactic acid, salicylic acid and resorcinol to allow for a deep penetration and more extensive exfoliation of the outer layers of skin. Following the procedure, you’ll notice flaking and exfoliation for about 3 to 4 days. Within a week, you’ll enjoy smoother, healthier skin!
