Light to Medium-Level 40% Alpha Beta Combination Peel

WHAT IS IT: Our Alpha Beta peel contains both Salicylic acid and Glycolic acid. Glycolic Acid is a naturally occurring chemical belonging to the Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) family. Derived from sugar cane, this important AHA is the smallest of the fruit acids and is able to penetrate the skin.
Salicylic acid, a common beta hydroxy acid, has been used for treating acne for decades. In fact, acne treatment remains the primary use for beta hydroxy acids. Its effect on the epidermis and upper dermis are similar to those of prescription Retin-A, but with less irritation. It is soluble in oil and can exfoliate oily skin areas, even within oil-rich pores. Therefore, it has a beneficial effect on acne, pigmentary disturbances, and sun damaged skin.

WHAT DOES IT DO: This peel will dissolve the 'glue' that holds dead cells on the surface of the skin. Dead skin cells are what cause a dull, uneven skin tone, and the blocking of pores leading to blackheads and acne. This dissolving action of the Glycolic Acid allows the dead cells to slough off, leaving behind a smoother skin surface with clear pores. This also helps stimulate collagen formation to plump up the skin from beneath.

HOW DO YOU USE IT: This peel can be applied for up to 10 minutes. You can repeat the peel every three weeks and your purchase provides enough peel solution for approximately 4-5 months worth of peels. Your skin will feel softer, look smoother, with improved texture and tone and reduced signs of sun damage. With a peel of this strength, a full course of peels (8-10 peels) are needed to see optimal results.
You'll receive a 30ml (1fl oz) bottle of each medical-grade peeling agent (2 bottles total, 2 oz total). Step one of the process applies salicylic/lactic acid at pH 4. Step two applies glycolic acid with pH 1.

WHY USE A 40 PERCENT COMBINATION PEEL: This peel is one step up from our 30 percent alpha-beta peel. It can retexturize the skin, restoring the radiance of your youth. These easy to use peels combine the benefits of both the AHA's and BHA's, with little to light peeling at the 40 percent concentration.

WHAT TO EXPECT: There will be some redness right after the peel, and possibly some light peeling in the days to follow. This is still a light-level peel and does not require considerable downtime.

OTHER INFORMATION: Because it does exfoliate so well, it has recently been added to formulations for chemical skin peels. Our 40 percent Alpha Beta peel is a light peel and is suitable for all skin types and both beginning and experienced peelers. There may be some redness right after the peel, but generally there is not much if any actual peeling. At 40 percent, these acids are very safe when used as directed, but they are professional strength (pH 1) and should be used only as directed. As with all products, a patch test is recommended to see how your skin reacts to the peel. The use of sunscreen is essential to obtaining the results you are looking for.
Chemical peels should not be used on any sensitive areas of the body, including but not limited to the underarms and groin/genitals.

Great! December 15, 2018
Reviewer: May F. from Austin, TX United States  
I loved this combo peel, it really works great. quality and price is awesome. Also, they send me a free sample of microdermabrasion crystals and that was gorgeous, it works like the expensive brands for the skin. I really recommend them. I’m very happy for my purchase.

First time doing a combo peel. Definitely felt it. My skin was glowing the next morning. No skin sloughing off.

Very, very happy customer January 9, 2012
Reviewer: Jane from Austin, TX United States  
I started getting chemical peels when I was in high-school, I but once I graduated from college financial considerations (i.e. being self-insured) put a halt to visits to my aesthetician.

The differences in the way my skin looked were notable - in college I was often complimented on how nice my skin looked, but once the peels stopped the compliments stopped.

I was dubious when I saw Skin Obsession mentioned on an online acne forum. I'd had no idea that you could buy chemical peels without having some sort of license.

Overcoming my skepticism I ordered and I couldn't be happier.

I LOVE being able to do these peels at home for a FRACTION of what it would cost if I went to an aesthetician. I can also afford to do peels whenever I want (although I would strongly suggest that anyone new to peels follow the instructions closely until you know how your skin will react).

My skin is finally starting to look like it did before lack of funding turned it into a disaster zone.

'Does Exactly What It Says August 28, 2011
Reviewer: BCW BCW from Beverly Hills, CA United States  
After eight weeks I am pleased with my results.

Here is what I did:
1. Don't need to purchase a neutralizer. Use the baking soda and water mixture as indicated. I added ice.
2. I NEVER SCRUB before, during, after peel.
3. Protect results- use sunscreen and moisturizer.
4. I peel on Friday- by Monday makeup application is smoother.
5. I poured peel into a stainless steel spoon and used two separate, foundation brushes to apply the peels.  ('Didn't like gauze or cotton balls.)  
6. I wash my face using just my hands and my usual cleanser. Using wash cloths, sponges or nylon puffs is too irritating during  weeks of peeling.

Results: Discolorations have significantly faded, fine lines diminished, pores are much smaller, skin is brighter and smoother. I use a LOT LESS makeup than before, moisturizers absorb quickly. Makeup stays in place longer.

'Love this product!

'Hope this review is helpful.

First time! March 24, 2011
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Boston, MA United States  
I've never had a professional peel but wanted some visible results, so decided on the mid-strength combo peel. I just did it- simple process, easy-to-follow instructions, moderate stinging. My skin immediately feels tight and super smooth! I'm excited to see how much dead skin comes off in the next few days. You'd pay at least this much for over-the-counter drugstore stuff that doesn't work well, so you can't beat the price! My order arrived very quickly after an easy transaction.
