Glycolic Acid (Alpha Hydroxy)
A good all-around acid for normal-oily skin types to exfoliate the skin. More harsh than lactic acids. An alpha hydroxy, this peel penetrates the epidermis-only.

Based in alcohol, this is a drying peel best suited for oily, acneic skin types. Containing both alpha and beta hydroxies along with resorcinol, this peel penetrates more deeply than an alpha or beta peel, but less deeply than a TCA. Not recommended for sensitive skin. Not recommended for dry skin. 

Lactic Acids (Alpha Hydroxy) 
Milder than glycolic acid, and typically better for working on hyperpigmentation problems. Our formulation contains licorice extract, an effective skin lightening additive. Appropriate for normal, dry, or oily skin. An alpha hydroxy, this peel penetrates the epidermis-only.  A good all around peel for the beginner. 
Contraindication:  Do no use if you have milk allergies.

Mandelic Acid (Alphy Hydroxy) 
An alpha hydroxy acid, Mandelic Acid is derived from bitter almonds.  The molecular structure of mandelic acid is larger than better known alpha hydroxy acids such as glycolic acid and lactic acid.  This means it takes longer to penetrate the skin's surface and is much less irritating.  Excellent for acne, large pores, blackheads, wrinkles, lines, sun damaged skin, extremely sensitive skin and darker skin tones. 
Contraindications:  Do not use if you have nut allergies.

Phytic Acid (neither an alpha nor a beta)
A superficial peel with exfoliating properties.  Desirable for skin types that cannot tolerate AHA's.  Derived from rice, this product is excellent for anti aging, skin smoothing, brightening, Melasma and general discolorations. Acne clients will see skin clearing.  Those with PIH (post inflammatory hyper pigmentation) will see excellent results.  

Pumpkin Exfoliating Masque w/5% Glycolic Acid
A wonderful combination of enzymatic properties, along with an alpha hydroxy acid to exfoliate the skin, refine texture and brighten skin tones.
Salicylic Acid (Beta Hydroxy)
Oil soluble, thus making these acids perfect for oily/acne skin that needs deep pore cleansing and loosening of blackheads. Use the 3% or 8% strengths as a "first-step" when using alpha hydroxy acid peels to remove all oils from the skin, or use alone 3/4 times per week for oil/blackhead control. Use the 15% or 10% once a week only. A beta-hydroxy, this acid penetrates the upper layers of the epidermis only.  Contraindications:  Do not use if you are allergic to aspirin products. 

Trichloreacetic Acid (TCA)
Deeper peeling class of acids used for acne, lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, scarring. Longer lasting results, more intensive. This peel penetrates the epidermis, into the upper layers of the dermis, thus producing a more effective peeling experience. Always begin with a low strength with this particular acid.

Non Acid Enzyme Peel
All natural enzymes from papaya (papain) and pineapple (bromelain), safely dissolve surface skin debris and leave skin feeling soft, cleansed and refreshed. Our enzyme peel is professional strength, exactly what you would get in a very high-end salon. Use this product if you have sensitive skin that is non-tolerant of acid usage.

FDA December 2, 2002 Posting - Sun Sensitivity
Clients need to be aware that by using glycolic acid and other peeling products, your skin will be more photo-sensitive than normal.  It is recommended that you use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15, preferably SPF 30 or higher, after using skin peel products.  The FDA recommends using an SPF for one week post-peel.
