Peel Appeal: What is the difference between AHAs and Salicylic Acid?
Next level exfoliation treatments. Peels are less abrasive, yet still a powerful way to slough away the top layer of skin. Work with clients to review skin concerns and discuss the results they are looking for before choosing a peel treatment. There are several types of AHAs, but you’ll mostly find either glycolic orlactic acids in skincare products. These are best for improving skin texture and boosting glow, while salicylic acid peels are ideal for acne-prone and mature skin types. OurGlycolic Solution contains 10% glycolic acid, known for its brightening, resurfacing and age-fighting benefits. For best results, offer this to your clients in a series of 6 treatments. Our most aggressiveexfoliating solution is made with 20% salicylic acid and 4.4% lactic acid. This combination of alpha and beta hydroxy acids dissolves the keratinized outer layer of skin, removing dead cells and reveals the fresh skin just below the surface. Not only does it help the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it instantly brightens the appearance of dark spots and acne scarring.
