It is important to understand that not all Peels are created equal; peel eﬃcacy varies depending on the PH of the peel (acid). The lower the PH of the peel the stronger the results, a 100% acid peel with a high PH is weaker and less eﬀective than a 50% peel with a low PH. Synergy Spa & Aesthetics uses low ph peels that are non-buﬀered to ensure the greatest results. Please note: If you are currently using a topical prescription on your face such as Retin A, Renova, Tazorac, Benzol Peroxide, or any form of AHA’s such as Glycolic Acid you will need to stop and wait at least 72 hours before a facial peel can be performed.
Pre-prep skin for 2 weeks before receiving a peel with the use of an at home Retinol and Glycolic Acid leave on product.
Discontinue the use of AHA’s, BHA’s, Retinols or any other skin sensitizing agent for 72 hours prior to peel.
Ask your doctor for a prescription for the prevention of cold sores if you have a history of herpes simplex.
