The Skinceuticals Sensitive Peel with Lactic Acid are extremely gentle and have a lower risk of side effects, such as irritated skin, peeling, and hypersensitivity. Lactic acid peels are alpha hydroxy acids (AHA); derived from milk, they are very mild chemical peels in Cincinnati with little to no downtime. This type of peel is excellent for both deep skin cleansing and for balancing pH factors associated with blocked pores and acne. Even though a lactic acid peel is gentle, it is strong enough to remove a number of toxins, dirt, and excess oil from the skin, leaving it looking younger, firmer, and healthier than before.

A glycolic acid peel is recommended every 2 weeks until the desired results are achieved. Results are cumulative and optimal benefits are seen with a series of three or more peels.

This deeper peel offers dramatic skin rejuvenation. The Rejuvenize peel is appropriate for moderate to severe skin imperfections, such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture from acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. The SkinMedica Rejuvenize Peel contains a number of alpha and beta hydroxy acids that slough away damaged skin, including lactic acid, salicylic acid, retinoic acid, as well as panthenol, which is also known as vitamin B5. This ingredient soothes the new skin that forms as the peel works on destroying the old cells. The degree of peeling may vary depending on the individual’s skin condition and degree of damage. Peeling can range from mild flaking to peeling in sheets. Regardless of the amount of peeling, the skin is still sloughing off at an accelerated rate, which will result in the following benefits: improvement in the appearance of skin tone and texture, smoothness of fine lines and wrinkles. For optimal results, Rejuvenize peels should be repeated every 6 weeks in a series of 3.Return to Skinmedica Chemical Peels ^

This is the perfect “lunch-time” peel for acne-prone skin. The Salicylic Peel is a superior exfoliate that improves the appearance of aging, acne-prone, and sun-damaged skin. Its anti-inflammatory properties help to immediately reduce the inflammation of acne, unclogs pores, loosen and lifts out blackheads, evens skin tone, and prevents future outbreaks. This extremely safe peel can be used more frequently than the other peels without much risk for irritation. Facial redness, or erythema, post-peel should subside in a few hours. Light peeling may be seen for the next few days. If you get salicylic acid peels for active acne, you might experience some post-peel purging. As the acid exfoliates away the surface of your skin, it brings clogs you have underneath closer to the top, which may erupt as more active pimples. We recommend repeating the peel weekly until achieving the desired results. Results are cumulative and optimal benefits are seen with a series of three or more peels.
