Peels range from exfoliating acids to enzymes, their effects on the skin can be wide-ranging. Peels can loosen the connections (desmosomes) between dead skin cells at the surface, they can even out skin tones and stimulate cell renewal. Peels include AHA’s, BHA’s, and proteolytic enzymes derived from plant-based products. As new peels have been developed, so has the science behind them, presenting the aesthetician with the dilemma of which product is best to treat the specific needs of their client.
Our Level 4 Peels unit is designed to help aestheticians assess these needs, giving them the knowledge and understanding to work intuitively and decide the best protocol going forward. We do not advocate any particular brands or pharmaceutical companies, we leave that to you. Our training focuses on the education and science behind the effects and outcomes of different AHA’s, BHA’s, enzymes, and their effective working concentrations. Trained aestheticians are then best placed to decide which protocol contains the optimal combination of products most likely to meet the expectations of their clients.
