Dermalogica Launches First Chemical Peel!


Professional skin therapists now have a new level of service to offer clients in the form of BioSurface™ Peel, Dermalogica’s first-ever chemical peel, which has been exclusively formulated for use in skin care centres and spas around the world.


This revolutionary four-step exfoliant system is the first range of products to be introduced within Professional Expert Strength, a new line of professional products which is only available to licensed skin therapists. BioSurface Peel addresses a diverse array of conditions that include reducing skin roughness and the appearance of fine lines, as well as helping to treat hyperpigmentation, pseudofolliculitis (razor bumps) and acneic inflammation. This new procedure offers the many benefits of traditional chemical peels, but with little to no post-peel redness or downtime – a huge advantage for consumers.

“Today’s woman is time-deprived, but still cares greatly about her skin health and wants results,” comments Diana Howard, VP of Research and Development and Global Education for Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute. “Since Dermalogica launched more than twenty five years ago, its mission has always been to set the industry standard and provide its tribe of professional skin therapists with the most cutting edge products and treatments so they are best equipped to meet the demands of today’s consumers. New BioSurface™ Peel will provide consumers with the results they desire without any recovery downtime.”

The application process for BioSurface™ Peel consists of an initial Prep Step, followed by layers of Enzyme and Acid Active peel solutions, which are neutralised in the fourth and final neutraliser step. Because of the intensity of the powerful active ingredients, special training and certification are required to use BioSurface™ Peel.

Active ingredients include Salicylic Acid used in both the Prep Solution (Step 1) and Acid Active(+) (Step 3). As a keratolytic agent, Salicylic Acid causes weakening of cell connections allowing for sloughing of skin cells. Combined with a low pH, keratin bonds are loosened, creating a burst of exfoliation, which addresses signs of aging and hyperpigmentation.

The Enzyme Active(-) (Step 2) delivers an 83% total enzyme solution utilising Pumpkin Fruit enzymes with Papain, Protease and Aminopeptidase enzymes. In addition, Moth Bean Extract offers a gentle, botanical alternative to synthetic retinoids, while offering similar effects.

In addition to Salicylic Acid, the Acid Active(+) phase (Step 3) also delivers Lactic Acid, bran-derived Phytic Acid, and Sugar Cane Extract. This step brightens areas of hyperpigmentation, helps remove impaction plugs in follicles especially in sebaceous glands, and aids in cell turnover. The De.celerator (Step 4) halts the exfoliation process with a blend of Sodium Bicarbonate, Yeast Extract and soothing Cucumber Fruit, Japanese Green Tea, Oat Leaf and Saponaria Leaf Extracts. This final phase slows the activity of the acids and normalises the epidermis, while calming and comforting skin and initiating the process of skin repair.

To ensure maximum results, BioSurface Peel is recommended to clients as a series of three to six treatments during the autumn, winter and spring months to minimise UV exposure.
