Skinceuticals Gel Peel SM: Salicylic/Mandelic Acid Peel

GEL PEEL SM dissolves sebum and cellular debris in pores; improves collagen synthesis and elastin fibers in the dermis; encourages cell renewal; and improves the appearance of skin discolorations.

SkinCeuticals - GEL PEEL SM dissolves sebum and cellular debris in pores; improves collagen synthesis and elastin fibers in the dermis; encourages cell renewal; and improves the appearance of skin discolorations. Mediterranean fruit vinegar enhances exfoliation while softening skin. Salicylic and mandelic acid work together to exfoliate the skin while decongesting pores and reducing irritation. Mandelic acid is one of the strongest AHAs and its large molecular structure and even penetration help prevent inflammation and irritation that can sometimes occur with AHA use. Salicylic acid is a lipid soluble BHA that penetrates pores to dissolve sebum and cellular debris. By accelerating the cell renewal process, stimulating collagen synthesis, and improving elastin fibers in the dermis, this light chemical peel revitalizes sensitive skin and helps improve the appearance of problematic skin.

  • Dr. Miller and his team at Dreams Med Spa did a wonderful job from pre-op to surgery and follow up examinations. Takes the time to listen and finds exactly what works for you. Clean office and pre-op rooms, private and professional staff as well as on time appts. and follow up cares. I will be using them for any future needs I may have

  • Because I was treated for breast cancer at 32, I was fairly certain I would opt for reconstructive surgery. I didn't know which doc to go with. I'm so thankful someone steered me towards Dr. Miller. The process is a little lengthy in nature and getting "fills" to stretch the tissue to accommodate the new breast implants was not my favorite. But, cancer treatment is not a sprint...It's a marathon and this was just part of the treatment and recovery process. The discomfort was worth it, without a doubt. I'd do it again.

  • Since i was younger i knew i always wanted bigger breast. Once i was able to afford it i knew i had to do it and i’m soooo glad i did! This process was smooth and easier then i thought. If you are even questioning the procedure i suggest at least going in for a free consultation!!
