We have different kinds of chemical peel tailored for different skin conditions and problems.
Alpha hydroxy acid peels-
Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are naturally occurring carboxylic acids such as glycolic acid, a natural constituent of sugar cane juice and lactic acid, found in sour milk and tomato juice. This is the mildest of the peel formulas and produces light peels for treatment of fine wrinkles, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne.
AHA peels may cause stinging, skin redness, mild skin irritation, and dryness.
Beta hydroxy acid peels-
It is becoming common for beta hydroxy acid (BHA) peels to be used instead of the stronger alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) peels due to BHA's ability to get deeper into the pore than AHA. Studies show that BHA peels control sebum excretion, acne as well as remove dead skin cells to a certain extent better than AHAs due to AHAs only working on the surface of the skin. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid.
Modified Jessner's peel-
Jessner's peel solution, formerly known as the Coombe's formula, was pioneered by Dr Max Jessner, a German-American dermatologist. Dr Jessner combined 14% salicylic acid, lactic acid, and resorcinol in an ethanol base. It is thought to break intracellular bridges between keratinocytes. It is very difficult to "overpeel" the skin due to the mild percentages associated with the acid combination, and does not penetrate as deeply as other chemical peels.
ZO 3-Step Stimulation Peel-
This potent stimulating peel confers longer lasting benefits beyond the temporary superficial improvements seen with ordinary peels. Peeling is very mild or even unnoticeable, with minimal to no downtime. Designed for acne, melasma, sun damage, fine lines, texture roughness, large pores, dullness. Promotes softer, smoother skin.
This is the latest invention by Dr. Zein Obagi, targeting at skin laxity, superficial scars, correction of skin texture and melasma, leading to younger and smoother skin.
Our doctor will choose different combination of chemical peels for clients every time to maximize the treatment result.
