Chemical Peels – Irvine, CA
Glycolic Acid Peel
This peel is the most active and beneficial of the Alpha Hydroxy Acids in skin care and is made from sugar canes. It penetrates through the cell walls and once inside the cell, it triggers new formation of collagen and helps plump up the cell and the ground substances in the skin to reduce wrinkles on the skins surface. This gives the skin a much smoother look and feel. It will also improve and smooth the texture of the skin by removing its damaged outer layers. It is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, mild acne scarring, fine wrinkles and uneven skin.
Lactic Acid Peel

In the deeper layers of skin, new collagen and elastin will be stimulated and the skin will become thicker, tighter, and lighter. This peel also helps to eliminate germs, toxins and dead cells and diminish Hyperpigmentation.
