Lactic Acid Peel Demo

Acid peels – not as scary as they sound. When you have an acid peel with us, you will always have a progressive, not aggressive, peel. Many people think that acid peels are serious treatments requiring days of hiding out while you skin sheds, like the famous scene from Sex And The City where Samantha has the sever, raw looking skin after a peel.

Those types of peel do indeed exist, but they are chemical peels performed by a doctor only. Peels of that depth, using ingredients such as phenol or TCA, are for major resurfacing on people who have scarring or want a non-surgical alternative to a facelift for deep wrinkling. In fact, some require anaesthesia and have weeks of downtime!

When dealing with the epidermis (upper skin layers) as in a salon or skin clinic setting, we are taking about acids such as lactic, salicylic, mandolin or glycolic, most of which are naturally derived and work WITH the skin, not against it. These type of peels are best employed in a series of three or more to gradually get your skin where you want it to be in a gentle manner, rather than aggressively. See the video below for a demo and lots of details about the different acids and what they are used for.
