Alpha Beta Peels
The Alpha Beta Peel is a full spectrum peel because it combines an application of Beta Hydroxy Acid (Salicylic Acid) followed with an application of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (Glycolic Acid). Research shows that applying Salicylic Acid before applying Glycolic Acid will cause the Glycolic Acid to penetrate the skin more deeply - resulting in a totally unique and highly superior facial peel.
How it Works. Research shows that applying Salicylic Acid prior to applying Glycolic or Lactic Acid will cause the AHA peel acids to better penetrate the skin, resulting in a totally unique and highly superior facial peel with increased Glycolic & Salicylic benefits.
The combination of the both Hydroxy Acids in succession makes for an extremely thorough peel. Both Glycolic, Lactic and Salicylic acid perform at a more effective level when used in the Alpha Beta format. The AHA Kojic Pigment Correction peel can also be used after application of Salicylic Acid.
For those suffering with an acneic skin condition, the alpha-beta peel is the ultimate “golden ratio”. By combining the individual powers of glycolic and salicylic acid, a new and truly effective form of exfoliation has been developed for those troubled with acne vulgaris. As glycolic acid goes to work on the skin’s surface by evenly exfoliating superficial dead skin and debris, salicylic acid is then able to fully penetrate into clogged and oil-laden pores. The two-step technology of the alpha-beta peel is an ideal system for acne-sufferers!
