Combined, salicylic and mandelic acid work synergistically to exfoliate the skin while decongesting pores and reducing irritation.

Combined, salicylic and mandelic acid work synergistically to exfoliate the skin while decongesting pores and reducing irritation. Although one of the strongest AHAs, mandelic acid’s large molecular structure and even penetration help prevent inflammation and irritation that can sometimes occur with AHA use. Salicylic acid is a lipid soluble BHA that penetrates pores to dissolve sebum and cellular debris. By accelerating the cell renewal process, stimulating collagen synthesis, and improving elastin fibers in the dermis, this light chemical peel revitalizes sensitive skin and helps improve the appearance of problematic skin.

2 weeks prior to the peel, a patch test is carried out and you will start using Skinceuticals C+AHA Antioxidant Serum morning OR night-time. It is recommended that a course of 6 peels (1 per week) is undertaken. Thereafter, once a month for maintenance is ideal. Those going on a course of Skinceuticals peels should also be using a topical antioxidant serum containing AHAs (fruit acids) and a broad-spectrum sunscreen to get the full benefits of the peel. Alternatively, you can use one of the AHA products within the range – i.e. Intense Line Defense. As the peel is a correcting procedure you will need to use products which will prevent the new healthy skin cells being exposed to sun damage, which can counteract the benefit of the peel and result in future photo-damage problems.
