Power up your Parisian Peel
Power up Parisian peels- These peel options are exclusive to CFPS. The power up peels use the microdermabrasion as a stepping stone. After receiving the microdermabrasion the esthetician will then apply a small amount of a mild acid to the face. These acids are quickly absorbed and give your skin a quick boost of high quality and highly potent ingredients to treat your skin from the inside out. The acids are removed quickly, and then a soothing mask is applied. The benefit of the power up peels is that you will be treating the outside surface of your skin as well as deep beneath the surface from the inside out.
The acids to choose from are:
- Vita Brite Refresher – Ascorbic Acid, Mandelic Acid, mastiha, bearberry extract are the main ingredients which targets photo damage/ pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and dry dehydrated skin.
- Hydroxy Rebuilder – Glycolic acid, Lactic Acid, Retinol, Malic and Citric acids, Meadowsweet are the main ingredients. This acid is good for overall skin management, uneven texture, pigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles.
- Green Power Rebuilder – These ingredients come in a powder form and mixed with a cleanser then massaged into the skin. The main ingredients are, sea fennel plant stem cell, Lilac Plant stem cell, Argan plant stem cell, green tea extract, and mastiha. This is a great choice for pigmentation, acne and acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and elastosis.
