Professional ExfoliationTreatment Purpose

Superficial exfoliation are topical exfoliants applied to the skin to soften the dead skin layer and exfoliate the skin. Stimulating cell turnover will help to restore the skin to a more youthful appearance. Many skin conditions can be improved when receiving a series of peels. Fine lines will be softened, dull skin will appear more radiant, rough or uneven skin will become smoother. Sun damaged skin or blotchy skin will even out. Acne scarring may be softened. Because these peels are superficial there is no downtime.

Patients WhoShould Not Be Treated

Exfoliation should not be used on clients with active cold sores or warts, skin with open wounds, sunburn, excessively sensitive skin, dermatitis orinflammatory rosacea in the area to be treated. Inform your esthetician if you have any history of herpes simplex.
