Our goal as we age is to maintain a fresh looking skin appearance. Skin that looks dull because of dead skin cell build up prevents our natural radiance from shining through!  Increasing the skin cell turnover (which slows considerably after the age of 30), without causing too much irritation or drying out the skin, is the goal.

The new AHA Radiance Peel from Institut’ DERMed accomplishes just that, and helps to address the most common skin aging concerns as well.  AHA stands for Alpha Hydroxy Acid.  AHA’s can be found naturally in citrus fruits, grapes, apples, milk and sugar cane. Regardless of their source all AHA’s are similar in molecular structure, however the smallest molecular structure is found in Glycolic Acid and because of its small structure it can absorb deeper into the skin.  This makes it a very popular choice with skincare professionals because it can create some impressive skin rejuvenation.

Glycolic Acid is derived from sugar cane, and comes in a variety of concentrations in skincare, from 3% to 50%. Lower concentrations are typically found in OTC homecare formulations, and higher concentrations in professional skincare peels.  As the primary ingredient in the AHA Radiance Peel this treatment helps to dissolve the glue-like substance that holds the dead skin cells tightly bound in the hair follicles and to the surface of your skin. Encouraging the shedding of those old surface skin cells helps to improve your skin tone, brighten your appearance and control oil as well, an important factor in improving the appearance of oily acne prone skin.

Glycolic peel treatments have amazing benefits for your skin, and when formulated with peptides and anti-oxidants, such as the AHA Radiance Peel, create an undeniable smoothness to your skin’s appearance (minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles).

The AHA Radiance Peel delivers “healthy skin aging”, the key to youthful looking skin. Ask your esthetician about this new Facial Treatment today!
