70% Lactic Acid Peel
The 70% Lactic Acid peel is ideal for skin rejuvenation. If you have acne, pigmentary changes, moderate wrinkling, or sun damage, then you can achieve noticable results in the look and feel of your skin with absolutely no downtime by undergoing a series of 70% Lactic Acid peels.
This peel acts by loosening the cohesive glue-like adhesion of the cells in the outer five or six layers of the epidermis. As these outer layers begin to loosen and exfoliate with daily skin care, healthier, more youthful skin cells are produced. Lactic acid stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin fibers in the dermal layer of the skin, so that, over a period of time, the skin surface begins to look younger and smoother. The restoration of elasticity actually causes the disappearance of the lines!
Lactic acid is present in all human cells, making it safer than other alpha hydroxy acids such as glycolic acid. After undergoing a 70% Lactic Acid peel, you experience a quick recovery with no downtime, making it the perfect “lunch time” peel!
TCA (Trichloracetic Acid) is often used to treat more advanced visible signs of aging and discoloration caused by sun damage, acne or hormones. Our TCA Peel is formulated with 10%, 20% or 30% TCA and 10% glycolic acid to improve the look of moderate to advancing fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration.
The Jessner’s peel is excellent for all skin types. It smooths and rejuvenates skin, producing beautiful results in treating mild to severe acne, discoloration, moderate wrinkling, and sun damage. Peeling the face, neck, hands, and upper chest is also quite effective.
The Jessner’s peel is very beneficial for patients with acne, oily, or thicker skin, because it tends to decrease oil production and open clogged sebaceous follicles. It also contributes to the healing process of acne.
The Jessner’s peel combines resorcinol (14%), lactic acid (14%), and salicylic acid (14%) to result in deeper penetration and greater exfoliation of the outer layers of skin cells. Each of these ingredients acts in a slightly different manner for significantly visible exfoliation and minimal complications. This deeper exfoliation produces noticeable flaking and exfoliation in the following three to four days after the peel, and within a week a smoother, healthier layer of skin will be revealed.
