IN-OFFICE PEEL FOR SENSITIVE SKIN, FIRST-TIMERS



Procyte, a PhotoMedex company, introduces the Facial Peel Kit that is designed for use on sensitive skin or on patients who have never had a peel. The peel consists of 30 percent lactic acid with a pH level of 2.0. It works by gently removing the outer layers of surface-damaged skin.

Physicians can use this peel as an add-on to their services, as the peel only takes about 30 minutes. Three to five sessions are recommended for optimal results although, according to the company, patients will see results with the first peel.

The Facial Peel Kit contains prep solution, a lactic acid peel, a post-AHA neutralizer, two Neova antioxidant serum foil packettes, one Ti-Silc Sheer SPF 45, cotton squares for application and treatment protocol. It is only available to dispensing physicians.
