Renue 30 Peel
Renue 30 is a multi-functional alpha hydroxy acid resurfacing peel containing 30% lactic acid (AHA) to decrease the visible sign of aging and hyperpigmentation and gentle on Rosacea. The lactic acid exfoliates dead skin cells and boosts skin turnover, improving texture and tone. This Multi-functional peel targets skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, sun damage and large pores. This peel is gentle enough to use in the summer months. Included is a post care kit
BHA 20 Peel
BHA 20 is a 20% salicylic acid peel that both reduces the signs of acne and helps correct skin discoloration. It is ideal for oily and acne prone skin. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid, is an exfoliant with soothing properties. It is oil soluble, allowing it to penetrate pores. It reduces pimples and helps control acne pimples. Included is a post care kit.
Recommended skin care products for maintenance:
Acne Clarifying Cleanser or Purifying Gel Cleanser, Acne Balancing Serum, Spot Clearing Lotion, HydraClarite or HydraSmooth, Retinol ( start with.25%), and Clear Shield Broad Spectrum Sunscreen.
How Does It Work?
Chemical peels work by deeply exfoliating the surface layers of the skin forcing your body to quickly replenish with new cells. When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and begins to rejuvenate itself like younger skin.
To be sure that the body doesn’t react to this deep exfoliation as it would to trauma, which can lead to pigment changes, exfoliation must be introduced gradually giving the skin cells time to adjust.
Pre-Treatment products recondition the skin and accelerate results and minimize complications. Post-treatment products minimize complications, heal, and soothe the skin and maintain the results. Professional treatments enhance the results of your home care products.
Beautiful skin does not happen overnight, and treatments take time to show the results. A single chemical peel can provide immediate effect of bright and radiant skin: however, more significant results in treating textural issues, fine lines, and inflamed acne could take up to eight weeks.
We recommended a series of 6 peels, 4 weeks apart, for best results.
Use home products consistently and as directed to achieve optimal results. Just as you take time to exercise, you need to take time for your Daily skincare workout regime in the morning and the evening.
Frequently Ask Questions
Are you considering a Facial Peel for the first time?
Here are a few questions and answers that may help you decide.
What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. An acid is applied to the skin to lower the PH which loosens the connections between the dead skin cells, inducing exfoliation and stimulation new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Chemical peels can also thicken the epidermis, increase dermal volume, and stimulate collagen.
How Are Chemical Peels Classified?
Chemical peels are classified as light(superficial) medium or deep depending on the penetration depth of the ingredients used. Light peels exfoliate to various levels of the epidermis. Medium-depth peels treat through the papillary dermis and deep peels to the mid-reticular dermis. Deeper peels require more downtime and increase the chance of side effects, including photosensitivity, pigment changes and scarring.
How can Chemical Peels benefit the skin?
Peel treatments improve skin texture and firmness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Peels also even out skin tone, improve acne-prone skin and reduce pore size appearance.
On what areas of the body are chemical peels used?
Chemical peels are usually performed on the face but may also be used on the neck, décolleté and hands.
