Removing the dead skin cell layer increases cellular turnover allowing healthier cells to come to the surface. As a result, skin texture and color is improved and beneficial active ingredients from treatment creams are better absorbed into the skin. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) are water soluble and help to improve the appearance of sun damaged skin, dry skin and thickened skin caused by abnormal cell growth, smoking and bad products. AHA is highly beneficial for dry, dehydrated skins and preventing and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Always use sun protection after any exfoliating peel.
