Improve your skin's natural radiance with a single exfoliation or watch as a treatment series gradually smooths away wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, shallow acne scars and age spots. There are 2 kinds of exfoliation, Medical (Chemical) or Mechanical (Microdermabrasion/DermaSweep).

  MEDICAL EXFOLIATION

Medical Exfoliation involves combination of fruit acids, fruit enzymes, lactic acid is from sour milk, and Alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids. Other ingredients such as vitamin C and Kojic acid, (known for it's skin lightening effects) may also be added to help address individual needs. All treatments include extractions if needed, intense hydration to decrease the possibility of light peeling and 10 minutes of photo-modulation to destroy bacteria and encourage collagen production. Treatments suitable for: face, hands, chest and back.

   DETOX PEEL

This medical-strength of Beta-hydroxy acid is excellent for acne, penetration the skin's surface and is preferentially absorbed by the blocked pores. Softening comedones and allowing for easier extractions.

   OXYGEN PEEL

A slightly more vigorous peel which stimulates cell respiration and promotes healing, tightening and brightening of the skin. Recommended for smokers or thicker skin types.

   THE BRIGHTENING KOJIC PEEL

Kojic Acid is a powerful skin-brightening agent naturally derived from an array of organic materials (particulary fungus during the dermentation of sake). It is widely advocated as a healthier alternative to harsh bleach agents, like Hydroquinone which can ultimately wreck havoc on the skin's delicate pigmentation process.

Additionally, the AHA Kojic Acid Peel contains an extensive range of exfoliating agents such as Glycolic and Lactic Acid that can aid in recovery of acne conditions.

The Natural Skin Lighten Serum with pure extracts of Bearberry (otherwise known as Arctostaphylos Uva Ursi Leaf Extract) and Licorice is recommended to be used as part of a daily routine post-peel to enhance the peel's overall effectiveness. The powerful combination of skin lightening ingredients provides a clear and even toned complexion without the irritation.

A Gentle Approach to Powerful Results

The AHA Kojic Peel inhibits melanin production (tyrosinase activity) while simultaneously reducing existing pigmentation disorders such as melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The far-reaching lightning effects of Kojic-Acid have been compared to the powerful chemical agent hydroquinone (a controversial treatment option for pigmentation disorders). However, unlike hydroquinone, the AHA Kojic Peel's delicate approach to skin clarity poses little to no risk. Due to its mild peeling properties, the AHA Kojic Peel is highly recommended for individuals with sensitive skin.

A sophisticated formula featuring the best of nature's brightening tools without the harsh side effects. This powerful, yet mild chemical peel lightens, brightens, and tightens all in one simple step. In addition to its revitalizing powers, Kojic Acid also has anti-microbial properties. Due to it's powerful blend of natural skin lighteners, the AHA Kojic Peel can treat even severe hyperpigmentation with repeated use.
