Peels with the power to change the skin (and the results to prove it)
Few cosmetic treatments can change the skin’s appearance more dramatically than a professional facial peel. From correcting troublesome conditions, like acne or hyperpigmentation, to simply giving the skin a rejuvenating “lift,” peels exist for a variety of purposes. However, navigating the bloated peel market all alone–and the claims that each product makes–can be a daunting task. If you’re considering a facial peel, the myriad choices available can seem overwhelming without a solid benchmark for comparison. And for most people, that benchmark is the proof that a product performs as promised.
For CosMedix cosmeceuticals, proof is easy to come by. Known worldwide as the answer to a healthy complexion without irritation, CosMedix has backed its product claims with hard evidence for years. And with a proven collection of non-wounding peels for all skin types, you won’t have to scour the earth to find the right treatment for your unique concerns.
For those looking to correct superficial flaws and revitalize the skin, Today’s Peels by CosMedix offer a gentle, no-downtime alternative to harsh chemical peels. Instead of forcing the skin to repair itself with damaging chemicals, CosMedix works with the skin’s own chemistry to encourage healthy exfoliation and renewal. Using chirally correct ingredients–ingredients purified at the molecular level for maximum potency with minimal irritation risk–Today’s Peels require no prior preparation, yet are powerful enough to dramatically diminish the appearance of fine lines, dark spots, oily and acne-prone skin.
Combining antioxidant blueberry extract with stimulating L-lactic acid and blue corn meal, Blueberry Smoothie is a powerful yet gentle exfoliating peel and scrub. An exceptional blemish treatment, this light peel effectively corrects an assortment of superficial skin concerns, from sun damage to multiple degrees of discoloration. So impressive are its results that Blueberry Smoothie is among CosMedix’s top-selling professional treatments.
Designed to even out the top layers of the skin, Pomegranate Peel infuses the skin with powerful antioxidants while stimulating collagen to smooth over rough skin and correct uneven texture and tone. Combining 15 percent L-lactic acid–a chirally correct alpha hydroxyl acid derived from milk–with some of nature’s most effective free radical fighters, including red wine resveratrol, pomegranate seed oil and astaxanthin–a marine carotenoid 500 times more potent than vitamin E–Pomegranate Peel is remarkably gentle catalyst for change.
Benefit Peel truly is a peel for all skin types. Utilizing encapsulated retinol, this stimulating antioxidant peel is especially effective at neutralizing hyperpigmented, problem and prematurely aged skin types. In fact, in recent clinical testing, 91 percent of Benefit Peel recipients reported brighter skin, more uniform tone and less apparent wrinkles in just six weeks.
A unique blend of five chirally correct acids, Purity Peel is the answer to oily and acne-prone skin. Made with 10 percent encapsulated retinol and over four percent salicylic acid and L-TCA complex, this maximum strength clarifying peel effectively exfoliates problem skin, unclogs pores and eliminates toxins and impurities with amazing results. In clinical testing, over 95 percent reported clearer skin and fewer and less severe breakouts in just four weeks.
