When it comes to chemical peels, we’ve always had a unique perspective. Promoting overall skin health is one of Dermalogica’s core values. We also believe that regular resurfacing is crucial to accelerate cell turnover and renewal rates – so we opt for peels that are more frequent and less invasive rather than those that push the skin to the point of severe inflammation and possible scarring.

Additionally, we’re constantly looking for ways to give you the flexibility to create completely customized treatments for a range of skin conditions. With this in mind, the skin health experts at The International Dermal Institute and Dermalogica are excited to introduce the all-new and fully customizable Pro Power Peel.

In addition to being our fastest and strongest peel yet, the Pro Power Peel provides you with a full suite of products and the flexibility to create bespoke peels that are perfectly suited to each client’s needs. Pro Power Peel redefines the peel experience and allows you to give clients a different, custom peel with each treatment.
