Modern Day Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is an acid solution that is applied to the skin. It dissolves the outermost layer of skin cells, which then flakes off over the following days to reveal the fresher, younger layer below. Peels are very effective in treating a large range of skin concerns such as aging, sun damage, acne, mild scarring, improving skin brightness, and evening skin tone.

In this video brought to you by Associated Skin Care Professionals (ASCP), Danae Markland, VP of Clinical Development for Linder Health, demonstrates a chemical peel comprised of 15% mandelic acid, 10% lactic and 3% tranexamic acid. Tranexamic acid, or TXA is an incredible ingredient used in chemical peels for its ability to help with all types of discoloration. In this solution, the addition of mandelic and lactic acid help with the exfoliation process and induce desquamation.
