Spa’s premiere Peel
Using Derma MD Skin Care this is a three step process, starting with a cleansing application of papaya and pineapple enzyme which digests the outermost layer of the epidermis to allow deeper penetration of the glycolic. The second step is the application of the glycolic solution available in 30-70% values. Finally, an application of a soothing mask calms the skin, while subtly tightening.
Alpha hydroxyl acid peels
Alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs) are naturally occurring carboxylic acids such as glycolic acid, a natural constituent of sugar cane juice and lactic acid, found in sour milk and tomato juice. This is the mildest of the peel formulas and produces light peels for treatment of fine wrinkles, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne. Alpha hydroxy acid can also be mixed with facial washes, serums or creams in lesser concentrations as part of a daily skin-care regimen to improve the skin’s texture.
There are five usual fruit acids: citric acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid, malic acid and tartaric acid. Many other alpha hydroxyl acids exist and are used.
AHA peels may cause stinging, skin redness, mild skin irritation, and dryness.
