If fine lines and scars are aging you unnecessarily, a chemical peel could make you look years younger. These simple procedures work by getting rid of damaged skin cells and allowing newer, healthier cells to surface. They have the ability to diminish wrinkles and get rid of blemishes; some can even be effective in improving precancerous lesions.
Mild treatments, like glycolic acid peels, are suitable for many skin types and give the skin a smoother, brighter look. These peels remove only the top layers of damaged skin, but you’ll probably need multiple treatments to get the results you’re looking for.
Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are naturally occurring carboxylic acids such as glycolic acid or lactic acid, a natural constituent of sugar cane juice and lactic acid, found in sour milk and tomato juice. This is the mildest of the peel formulas and produces light peels for treatment of fine wrinkles, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne.
Dermalogica Skin Treatments
Age Smart Treatment
AGE Smart® contains scientifically advanced ingredients proven to impact the major biochemical reactions that contribute to skin aging before they start, so your skin is left smoother, firmer and healthier.
MediBac Clearing Treatment
The MediBac Clearing® system works to treat, clear and prevent adult acne while addressing the needs of adult skin. Most products and treatments for acne are designed for teenage skin, making them too harsh and irritating for adult acne sufferers. MediBac Clearing® controls acne without compromising skin’s integrity, which means skin is clearer and healthier.
Dermalogica’s MediBac Clearing® system is formulated specifically to treat adult acne. Each product, with its unique acne-fighting and clearing ingredients, is designed to be layered upon the skin to provide around-the-clock, maximum control of the main factors that contribute to acne.
Skin Brightening Treatment
Dedicated to results without compromising skin health, Dermalogica extensively researched the latest ingredient technology, searching for ingredients that would safely go beyond minimizing the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
This research has led to the development of ChromaWhite TRx®, the only system that rapidly delivers visible brightening and improved skin tone while improving skin health. ChromaWhite TRx® ensures you can treat your hyperpigmentation safely, without worrying about suffering from irritation or damage that can lead to premature aging.
The production of skin pigmentation is a multi-step process. Consequently, a multi-step system must be used to control discoloration and produce visible brightening results. When used morning and night, ChromaWhite TRx® delivers synergistic, around-the-clock treatment and prevention of hyperpigmentation.
Sensitive Skin Treatment
Itching, burning, stinging and redness are the obvious signs of sensitive skin. The triggers behind these sensations are less clear: genetics, hormones, stress, chemical assaults, foods and even aggressive skin treatments can intensify skin’s highly reactive state.
The common thread behind irritation, flushing and stinging is inflammation. When paired with the loss of skin’s protective barrier, skin health is compromised and becomes highly reactive.
UltraCalming™ contains UltraCalming™ Complex clinically proven to control neurogenic and immunogenic inflammatory pathways that lead to skin sensitivity.
Anti Aging Eye Treatment
The skin around the eye area is thinner and more delicate than anywhere else. Continual free radical assault breaks down collagen and elastin fibers that help keep skin smooth and firm. Tissue in this delicate area also has fewer oil glands to help block penetration of topically-applied products or chemicals from the environment.
Combine this with decades of squinting in the sun, late nights, lack of sleep and inadequate environmental protection and you have the tell-tale signs of eye area aging.
The most prominent eye area concerns include wrinkles (crow’s feet), puffiness (under eye bags), dark circles due to hyperpigmentation, and skin sensitivity due to dehydration. When treating these issues, it is important to take care not to use anything that will cause irritation.
Dry Skin Treatment
Dermalogica Moisturizers work on two levels, regulating skin’s water balance while managing your most pressing skin concerns for better looking skin daily.
Moisturizers are greatly misunderstood, as they do much more than just moisten dehydrated skin! Emollients help keep skin soft and smooth, can help regulate excessive oiliness or dryness, and even help protect against environmental assaults that trigger sensitivity, premature aging and skin damage.
Those with oily or breakout-prone skin conditions are often resistant to use moisturizers out of concern they will increase surface oils and shine. However, surface oils are different than water content in skin, and oily skin can experience dehydration. Dehydration is a lack of water, not oil, in skin. Meaning moisturizers are a must for every skin condition.
While regulating moisture loss, Dermalogica Moisturizers take the care of your skin one step further. If you struggle with excess oiliness, we have a moisturizer that contains “microsponges” that absorb excess surface oils for an all-day matte finish. Skin so sensitive it can’t even tolerate water? We have an anhydrous (waterless) moisturizer that glides over skin and acts as a protective environmental shield.
