What can I do about my aging skin?
As we age, cell turnover slows dramatically affecting the appearance of the skin. We start seeing signs of fine lines, wrinkles, acne and hyper-pigmentation.
Chemical peels are one of the best ways to address these changes.
How does dermalogica's Pro Power Peel work?
Chemical peels are an excellent treatment choice for a wide range of skin concerns, from acne and hyperpigmentation to advanced signs of aging. Despite their varying uses, most peels work the same way: they remove the skin’s outermost layers to stimulate cell renewal and cell turnover, improving skin’s texture and appearance.
Since every client’s skin is different, dermalogica’s Pro Power Peel can be tailored to your specific concerns.
It's not a one-size- fits-all treatment: for optimal results, a peel should be strong enough to accelerate cell turnover but not so powerful as to induce severe skin in ammation.
How is dermalogica's pro power peel different from other chemical peels?
Its full customizable! It's dermalogica's strongest and fastest peel yet, the 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 skin care professionals to create tailored treatments that effectively address a vast range of skin concerns – from early signs of aging to uneven skin tone and breakouts.

What should I expect after treatment?
Your skin may appear red and flushed following the treatment and it may be more sensitive depending on your skin's condition.
