Common Q&A About Our Chemical Peels

DNA Lacto-Ionic Gel Peel™ Lactic Acid is a non-irritating, naturally-occurring human metabolite with a lesser chance of irritation than synthetic acids. It is milder on skin than other peels, and well tolerated by most skin types including sensitive and rosaceous skin.

Lactic acid is also a humectant and a component of the natural moisturizing factor (NMF) of the stratum corneum. This exfoliator removes outer layers of thickened or damaged skin leaving a smoother and healthier appearance.   Best choice for mature, dry skin and beneficial in improving hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, photodamaged skin, enlarged pores, and rosacea.
The DNA Sal-Ionic Gel Peel™ is a highly effective peeling agent with the benefit of being in a gel form, without the typical irritation from a synthetic formulation.
Salicylic acid is an excellent “pore cleanser” due to the fact that it is lipophilic (oil soluble), so it penetrates sebum filled follicles. It is also anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial. It is well tolerated by all skin types.

It is excellent for treating acne, large pores, fine lines, acne scars, melasma, and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
This glycolic acid peel is derived from a natural source (sugar cane), and consequently has lesser chance for irritation or complications than synthetic peels.

Glycolic acid’s small molecular size allows penetration of the epidermis and stimulates new growth of skin and collagen by decreasing the bond that holds dead skin cells on the surface. This peel freshens the skin’s appearance, leaving behind new layers of clearer, smoother skin.   Excellent for photodamage, fine lines, enlarged pores, acne 1&2, hyperpigmentation, dull complexion, and ingrown hairs.
The LYCO IONIC JESSNER PEEL™ combines Resorcinol, Salicylic Acid, L-lactic Acid, Wine and Lycopene (a powerful anti-oxidant derived from watermelon seeds) to provide a very noticeable and effective exfoliation.

Jessner peels are deeper than AHA peels due to the combination and strengths of the peeling agents but with the modified LYCO IONIC JESSNER PEEL™ one will experience less of the common Jessner side effects, i.e. irritation, blotchy redness, and itching. Results are generally visible after only one treatment.   The LYCO IONIC JESSNER PEEL™ process usually requires one full week from application to completion and is great for those who are acne prone, photo damaged, hyperpigmented, have fine lines, or have post inflammatory pigmentation due to acne scarring.   Up to 6 layers of solution are applied to the skin producing a mild ‘sunburn’ effect. After 2-3 days, the skin will darken and tighten and begin to visibly exfoliate. Brighter, more evenly pigmented, soft and healthy skin is the final result. Recipient must stay out of the sun for one week post peel and wear UVA, UVB protection daily.   Requires Patch Test Prior to Treatment.
