Medical Grade Peels by Biophora:

The accumulation of dead skin cells on the most topical layer of the skin contributes to a dull appearance, uneven texture, bacteria formation, and in turn, most acne conditions. Biophora Peels, consisting of cosmeceutical and physical exfoliation, will allow for a more vibrant, refined texture and improved clarity of the skin.

These procedures activate cell renewal and prepare the skin to absorb products which encourage the body's own collagen production. These peels also prepare the skin to receive Biophora's active ingredients, nutrients and anti-oxidants, essential in the nourishment and healing of the skin.

These peels take only 20 to 30 minutes to deeply cleanse the skin and can be used on all skin types. There is no recovery time and makeup can be applied following the peel.

Glycolic Peel

Glycolic acid has the smallest molecular particle size, is the most potent of AHA’s and thus penetrates more effectively and deeply than any other AHA. For this reason, the Biophora Glycolic Peel is designed to target Element Exposed / Normal Aging skin conditions for patients who desire faster results. Available in 20%, 30%, 40% and 50% concentrations.

Salicylic Peel

Different from Glycolic or Lactic acids, Salicylic acid works within the deeper layers of the skin and is best suited for acneic skin. Salicylic acid is an antibacterial, oil soluble solution which is considered one of the best peels for relieving acne conditions.

Lactic Peel

Lactic acid is much larger in molecular size, cannot penetrate as fast or as deeply as Glycolic acid, and is considered a moisturizing agent. For these reasons, Lactic acid is best suited for people who require a less aggressive exfoliation and milder approach to skin rejuvenation. A gradual smoothing, brightening, and clearing of skin blemishes will be accomplished.
