This medical-grade, medium depth peel contains lactic, glycolic, salicylic and mandelic acid. An intensive peel, it is effective in renewing, brightening and resurfacing, which makes it the ideal treatment for severely pigmented and aged skin. The purple peel requires full skin preparation three to four weeks prior to treatment with specialised skin care products. It contains beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), with salicylic acid being the most active ingredient used. This treatment is perfect for those with oilier or acne prone skins, as it is oil-soluble and penetrates deeper into the skin. BHA peels provide the most dramatic results for ageing, pigmented and problematic skin areas. The benefits include resurfacing skin by removing damaged layers, promoting healthy new cell growth, reducing pigmentation, normalising oil production and improving the appearance of acne scars, resulting in a youthful and clear complexion.
