Lactic Acid Peels
Lactic acid is derived from milk. Due to its molecular size, being larger than AHA and BHA molecules, Lactic acid chemical peels do not penetrate as deep as Glycolic acid peels and Salicylic acid peels. This chemical peel is designed for those who do not require deep skin exfoliation and/or those who have dry, sensitive skin.
Glycolic Acid Peels
Glycolic acid (AHA) is an alpha hydroxy acid derived from sugar cane. It exfoliates the skin and contributes to enhanced skin hydration, improves the skin’s texture and sun spots. Glycolic acid peels are great anti-aging treatments that help the skin to regenerate itself. Glycolic acid is a popular chemical peel amongst young adults and those who want to brighten the skin.
Salicylic Acid Peels
Salicylic chemical peels are also popular for mature skins who want to regenerate the skin on a deeper level than what is typically achieved with microdermabrasion treatment or glycolic peels. By stimulating cutaneous shedding, we are able to exfoliate the superficial layers of the skin which improves pigmentation. Salicylic chemical peels are safe for all skin types.
