When people hear the term ‘chemical’, they might envision bio hazard symbols or green ooze in their minds, especially those of us who grew up with Batman and Nickelodeon cartoons. Axis Chemicals, anyone? However, there are ALL KINDS of chemicals. Many of them occur naturally in our bodies and the foods we eat. But, today we’re going to talk about the kind we put on your face.
So, what is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is simply a professional exfoliation treatment. And there are many different types to suit various skin needs. This guide is a great place to start if you’re considering a peel. However, your best bet is to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our skincare specialists to determine your skin type and needs.
Now, let’s go over the types of chemical peels we offer here at Transformations.
Pro 5 Exfoliant
This effective yet gentle exfoliation is our most mild peel so it’s great for sensitive skin or first time peelers. It’s also great for extractions. It uses Mandelic Acid to loosen follicle impactions, line smoothing Lactic Acid, and Gluconic Acid to gently exfoliate.
A step up from the Pro 5 is the Flower Enzyme. It uses Hibiscus Flower Extract, Vitamin A rich Pumpkin Ferment, and Fig sap derived Ficin to mildly exfoliate and brighten the skin. It’s great for all skin types except extremely sensitive skin.
Our Enzyme treatment is best for oily and breakout prone skin. It uses 5% Salicylic Acid to cleanse pores, Papain to exfoliate, and Pineapple derived Bromelain to smooth the skin. This treatment will target congested areas, smooth the skin’s surface by breaking down skin cell build up, and provide anti-inflammatory and nourishing benefits. Moon Healing Exfoliation!
Hydra Radiance Peel
This peel is best for combination and dry skin concerned with aging and hyperpigmentation. It packs a punch with 20% Lactic Acid to improve skin texture, Nopal Cactus Extract to calm and hydrate, and Hyaluronic Acid to prevent transepidermal water loss. Your skin will be repaired and strengthened after this treatment.
GlyPro Resurfacing Peel
This peel repairs and regenerates skin by improving the appearance of facial lines, uneven tone and texture. It uses 30% Glycolic Acid to improve skin texture and uneven pigmentation, Phytic Acid to exfoliate and protect, and Bilberry Fruit Extract to promote collagen synthesis and strengthen capillaries. It’s best for all skin types and concerns, except sensitive skin.
Beta Clarity Peel
The Beta Clarity Peel is best for oily and combination skin concerned with breakouts. It deeply cleanses the pores with antiseptic properties and targets congested, acne-prone skin. It also rejuvenates, smooths, and balances the complexion. It contains 30% Salicylic Acid, anti-inflammatory Niacinamide to brighten and increase collagen production, and anti-microbial antioxidant Cranberry. Yummy!
GlyPro Power Peel+
The GlyPro Power Peel + uses the same ingredients as the GlyPro Resurfacing Peel but with 60% Glycolic Acid. So, it’s great for all skin types concerned with aging, uneven texture, and pigmentation. This peel will effectively rejuvenate damaged skin and improve the appearance of aging and photodamage. It also addresses acne, smooths skin texture, softens fine lines, and evens skin tone. So, it basically does everything.
Retinol + C Peel Boost Max
This treatment combines Retinol and Vitamin C to stimulate collagen production and brighten the skin. It’s a leave on formula designed to be used alone or add to another exfoliation. It’s great for all skin types and concerns except acne, breakouts, and sensitive skin.
Triple Transformation Peel
This modified Jessner formula delivers a synergy of effective acids designed to reduce the appearance of melasma, freckles, and acne. It contains 14% Resorcinal to target rough textured skin (can have numbing effect), 14% Lactic Acid to smooth and brighten the skin, and 14% Salicylic Acid to clear pores and promote new cell growth. It can be used for all skin types and concerns except sensitive skin.
