The dead upper layers of your skin, or the epidermis, is resurfaced with a diluted acid-based solution. At Beau Visage Aesthetics we use several different solutions tailored to our client’s individual needs. We offer:
- Alpha Hydroxy Acid: A water-soluble solution typically preferred for normal to dry skin. AHA has the smallest molecular size allowing it to penetrate the skin’s surface more easily.
- Beta Hydroxy Acid: An oil-soluble solution often preferred for normal to oily skin prone to clogs and blemishes, as well as enlarged pores. BHA has natural skin-calming properties, making it ideal for sensitive skin that is prone to redness.
- Retinol Peels: Retinol peels exfoliate using vitamin A and are sometimes combined with other solutions for maximum benefit. Retinol peels are growing in popularity due to their anti-aging properties.
- Obagi Blue*: A revolutionary new concept in peels, Obagi Blue uses beta hydroxy acid combined with a blue dye to help practitioners gauge the perfect depth for your peel.
