Glytone Peels: Glytone products contain glycolic acid, which is an ingredient extracted from sugar cane and is considered an alpha hydroxy acid. This peel accelerates the cell life cycle and stimulates cell turnover, drastically improving skin’s texture and tone. Its small molecular structure penetrates deep within the skin’s structure and makes it a highly effective chemical exfoliator.
Salicylic Acid Peel: Salicylic acid is a mild acid that works as a keratolytic agent encouraging the sloughing of dead skin cells. This peel assists with the removal of open and closed comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) while improving blemished and uneven skin tone. It’s a safe effective treatment for acne, oily skin, textural changes and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation in patients of most skin types. This acid has anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it an ideal peel choice for individuals with problematic skin.
Skin Medica Medical Grade Peels: Skin Medica offers a comprehensive system of peels, each designed to target mild to severe skin imperfections. Peels help improve the visible appearance of photo-damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentary irregularities and acne scarring. Our licensed aesthetician will determine which peel is most appropriate for you based on your skin type and condition.
