How does it work?
Attack and address stubborn acne concerns. Uniquely formulated to refine and unclog pores for smoother, brighter and clearer skin, this treatment is designed to stop breakouts in their tracks and hamper the unwanted effect of acne.
This treatment works to dissolve oil buildup, in order to prevent severe acne outbreaks. Anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, this treatment also employs lactic acid to lift dark spots due to acne scarring, and resorcinol to exfoliate away dead skin cells, diminishing bacteria, which causes acne to become active. This treatment also reduces inflammation and swelling of cystic acne under the skin.
Will it work for my skin type?
This peel is best for clients who have moderate to severe acne. However, it does also help to improve post inflammatory hyper pigmentation and melasma.
What areas of my body can be treated?
The face is the most popular area for this treatment, however we can also treat the chest, back, shoulders and upper arms.
What results can I expect?
Improvement in breakouts and congestion. Clearer skin, with tighter pore size. Also, you will see an improvement in any visible scarring as well as prevention of further scarring caused by breakouts.
You’ll need to prepare your skin for this treatment using DermaQuest products. Depending on your skin type, you’ll need to prepare for between two to six weeks. It’s important that your skin is in good health prior to this peel, so you’ll be advised to use homecare products to strengthen, hydrate and protect the skin’s barrier before starting your clear skin journey.
We recommend this preparation for your treatment to ensure you experience minimal downtime. It will also help you achieve the best long-lasting results.

How many treatments will I need?
We recommend a minimum of 6 treatments, one every 4 weeks, followed by maintenance suggested by practitioner.
Aftercare advice and a great homecare kit is essential. They hold the key to maintaining your results at home. We always recommend a hydrating serum, such as DermaQuest’s B5 Hydrating Serum, to bring back the glow and supple look to the skin. We also advise using an advanced day and night routine such as the Obagi360 System Kit. It is important to start introducing everyday sun protection to protect your skin. It should be combined with a Retinol in the evening to resurface and refine the skin. Also use SPF, DermaQuest’s BHA Cleanser and DermaQuest’s DermaClear Serum.
