Advanced Chemical Peels, Volume 1, Alpha Hydroxy Peels
Short of surgery, chemical peels are all the rage for delivering dramatic results. This instructional DVD — Vol. 1, Alpha Hydroxy Peels — provides step-by-step instruction on how to apply and remove Lactic Acid and Glycolic Acid Peels for the face. Malinda McHenry, an aesthetician and instructor, helps you properly assess your client’s peel requests and choose the appropriate peel, based on the client’s Fitzpatrick type (skin’s ability to produce pigment), Glogau classification (skin elasticity), and desired results. Malinda also walks aestheticians through basic chemistry regarding pH and percentages of the peeling agents, products and supplies, benefits and contraindications, skin analysis, timing based on erythema and client feedback, neutralizing, recommended treatment series, expected results, and post-treatment care. She also discusses working with first-time clients and sensitive skin.
