DERMAL THERAPIES

CHEMICAL PEELS

Chemical Peels are actually an ancient treatment, and still one of the most effective services today. Mainly as the ‘chemicals’ are natural acids derived from fruits, plants and milks applied to the skin for beautifying results.

 

Today these chemicals have been advanced into pure, stronger and sophisticated ingredients to be applied on their own or a combination as a “Peel” or as an added ingredient to skincare products.

AHA (Alpha-hyroxy Acids)

BHA (Beta-hydroxy Acids)

TCA (Trychloroacetic Acids)

Superficial

Primarily work on a surface level to exfoliate and remove layers of dead skin cells and promote healthier cells. Improves texture and feel.

Can be absorbed into the deeper layers to stimulate collagen production.

Medium

Primarily work to exfoliate, move deeper into the pores to break down oil, remove waste & debris. Naturally antibacterial and anti-inflammatory

Can be absorbed into the deeper layers to stimulate collagen production
