Glycolic & Salicylic Peel

Restoring Lasting Health & Vitality to Your Skin

Glycolic Peel

A Glycolic Peel in St. Louis, performed at Renaissance helps to remove the outermost layer of your skin. This procedure takes around thirty minutes and is a gentle cleansing of the skin to remove the surface oils and dead skin cells that rest on your epidermis. Using a mild beta-hydroxy acid, the dead cells and cellular debris are removed, and a light circular application of frozen carbon dioxide is applied. Like a facial, you should notice a difference in your skin’s texture immediately, and your skin will have a smoother and more uniform appearance.

Salicylic Peel

Similar to the Glycolic Peel, Salicylic Peel goes a step further as an exceptional skin renewal system, and is often recommended for patients with acne. Working to not only smooth fine lines, the microcrystals target precise areas on your skin that need specific attention. The Salicylic Peel in St. Louis aggressively loosens the bond of dead cells on the surface while stimulating the new, living cells to reactivate your skin’s renewal process. The treatment is a quick, salicylic acid-based chemical peel which exfoliates while improving the overall complexion of all skin types. You may experience a mild burning sensation which should only last a few minutes after your treatment. Depending on the strength and depth of your procedure, light swelling may occur. Within 2-3 days, your skin will begin to peel and may continue to peel over the next several days. A recommended series of 4-6 peels will provide the best results. (*)
