Pro Power Peel collection features a full suite of peel products, including Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) and Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA). Each of these has a different molecular size and penetrates the skin to different degrees, allowing our skin therapists to create tailored treatments that effectively address a vast range of skin concerns – from early signs of aging to uneven skin tone and breakouts.
Each of the peels in this collection is efficacious enough to use alone. Used together, they allow skin therapists to create custom treatments that target a broad range of skin concerns.
Ultra Brite Peel consists of 30% Lactic Acid blended with Phytic Acid, Grape Juice and Tangerine Peel Extracts. Lactic Acid is one of the most effective and least irritating Alpha Hydroxy Acids. It is also a humectant that improves barrier function. This antioxidant formula blend helps to increase cell turnover, brighten and hydrate skin.
Power Clear Peel consists of 10% Mandelic Acid, 2% Salicylic Acid, and 15% Malic Acid. This acid blend targets blemishes, kills acne bacteria, reduces oil, and minimizes post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Advanced Renewal Peel consists of 30% Glycolic Acid blended with Phytic Acid and Prickly Pear Flower Extract. Glycolic Acid penetrates quickly and easily into the skin increasing cell turnover and improving skin clarity and luminosity.
Age Reversal Peel consists of 15% TCA blended with Phytic Acid, Green Sprout Extract, and Myristoyl Nonapeptide-3 (mimics Retin-A). TCA is used to treat advanced signs of aging such as wrinkles and UV-induced hyperpigmentation. (This peel is NOT for darker skin types.)
PRIOR to a PRO POWER PEEL:
The better the health of your skin, the less likely you will experience sensitization or adverse reactions to a chemical peel. Cracked or dehydrated skin allows for more penetration of chemical peeling agents, which can cause itching, stinging, or burning. It is strongly recommended that every client receives at least one preliminary facial prior to receiving a PRO POWER PEEL. A few facial treatments may be necessary to prepare your skin to ensure that you can tolerate the highly active peel ingredients. Priming the skin before performing a PRO POWER PEEL will ensure that treatments are a success and that every client receives the best results possible while recovering faster without adverse reactions.
AFTER PRO POWER PEEL:
- Skin may temporarily appear red or flushed after treatment depending on skin condition and sensitivity.
- Side effects may include dryness, stinging, irritation, itching, redness, swelling, tightness, peeling, or scabbing.
- On the second day, skin may appear darker or may begin to flake.
- On the third day, peeling may begin around the nose and mouth, followed by the cheeks, forehead, jawline, and neck.
- Keep skin hydrated until skin no longer shows signs of dryness or sensitivity.
- For the duration of the peeling process, the Pro Power Peel Post Procedure Kit is recommended to care for skin after treatment.
- Once peeling and redness has subsided, regular maintenance routine may resume.
- Increase fluid intake for the next 2-3 days.
- Avoid direct sun exposure for 2-3 weeks to prevent hyperpigmentation. Always wear SPF.
- Avoid strenuous exercise or extreme heat for 1 week to prevent blistering or discomfort.
- After 2 weeks, continue to maintain peel results by using Rapid Reveal Peel once a week.
