ADVANCED DERMALPEELS BY Mesoestetic from $150
Glycolic acid is one of the most frequently used alpha-dryoxy acids (AHA’s) derived from sugar cane.
It is highly effective for controlling and reactivating skin cells. It encourages cellular regeneration and
increases moisture levels in the epidermis and reinforces the skins natural barrier function.
It can feel intense when applied to the skin. This peel is beneficial for smoothing out rough texture,
evening out skin tone, fading away acne scars and pigmented spots, eliminating blackheads and
removing dirt from the pores. Generally, there is little to no downtime involved with this peel.
Lactic acid Peel
Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) derived from sour milk. Lactic acid stimulates the production of new collagen which can make up the dermal matrix. It has a natural moisturizing effect on the skin, attracting water molecules, stimulating ceramide synthesis and modulating the skins’ barrier function.
Suitable for sensitive/dry skin types, uneven skin tone, sun damage and pigmented spots. There is absolutely no downtime involved with this peel. It is also recommended for delicate areas such as the neck & décolletage.
Salicylic acid Peel
Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxyl acid (BHA) derived from willow bark. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects. It enables the breakdown of sebum and encourages superficial skin resurfacing without producing inflammation. Salicylic acid penetrates deeper than other acids, allowing for it to diminish inflammatory acne, control sebaceous secretion, reduce pore size and even out overall skin tone. Salicylic acid peels are not recommended for people with aspirin allergies or sensitivity. Generally, there is little to no downtime involved with this peel.
Modifed Jessners Peel
The Modified Jessner’s peel is considered to be a strong, broad-spectrum peel, as it is made up of three different acids; salicylic acid, lactic acid and citric acid. Salicylic acid is derived from willow bark; lactic acid is derived from sour milk, and citric acid is derived from citrus fruits. Suitable candidates for this combination peel would be individuals suffering from cystic acne, acne scarring, dark spots, irregular/dull skin tone, oily skin types and mild to moderate photoaging. Due to the strength of this peel, there may be a short downtime associated with it.
