AlumierMD Chemical Peels
The Renew 30 (Sensitive Skin Peel)
This is the gentlest and most hydrating chemical peel we offer. It’s 30% lactic acid formula loosens dead skin cells to result in a brighter, more hydrated, and even-toned complexion. This is a great choice for your first chemical peel or clients with sensitive skin.
AHA Duo (Anti-Aging Peel)
This chemical peel combines glycolic acid and lactic acid to exfoliate dead skin cells and boost skin turnover, improving texture and tone. This multifunctional peel targets multiple skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, UV damage and large pores.
The BHA 20 (Oily or Acne-prone Peel)
This salicylic acid based resurfacing chemical peel is formulated for oily, acne-prone skin. Salicylic acid is oil-soluble and has anti-inflammatory properties. This enables it to penetrate pores to reduce pore-clogging sebum and debris, while also reducing redness.
The Glow Peel (Performance Peel)
This modified Jessner solution combines 7% lactic acid, 7% salicylic acid and 7% resorcinol to create a resurfacing solution effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone. This peel is the most penetrating peel we offer and can be customized in strength by the number of layers applied.
