Hello and happy Monday to you all!!

Its not common knowledge that we love a chemical peel here at Cedar & James, so here is the low down on each peel that we offer and what may be the best one for you! 🧖🏼‍♀️Glycolic acid is one of the most frequently used alpha-dryoxy acids (AHA’s) derived from sugar cane. It is highly effective for controlling and reactivating skin cells. It encourages cellular regeneration and increases moisture levels in the epidermis and reinforces the skins natural barrier function. It can feel intense when applied to the skin. This peel is beneficial for smoothing out rough texture, evening out skin tone, fading away acne scars and pigmented spots, eliminating blackheads and removing dirt from the pores. Generally, there is little to no downtime involved with this peel. 🧖🏼‍♀️Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) derived from sour milk. Lactic acid stimulates the production of new collagen which can make up the dermal matrix. It has a natural moisturizing effect on the skin, attracting water molecules, stimulating ceramide synthesis and modulating the skins’ barrier function. Suitable for sensitive/dry skin types, uneven skin tone, sun damage and pigmented spots. There is absolutely no downtime involved with this peel. It is also recommended for delicate areas such as the neck & décolletage. 🧖🏼‍♀️Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxyl acid (BHA) derived from willow bark. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects. It enables the breakdown of sebum and encourages superficial skin resurfacing without producing inflammation. Salicylic acid penetrates deeper than other acids, allowing for it to diminish inflammatory acne, control sebaceous secretion, reduce pore size and even out overall skin tone. Salicylic acid peels are not recommended for people with aspirin allergies or sensitivity. Generally, there is little to no downtime involved with this peel 🧖🏼‍♀️ to book an appointment with me.
