Alpha & Beta Bi-Phasic Skin Peel
This unique peel consists of an application of Salicylic Acid followed by an application of Glycolic Acid. Research shows that Glycolic Acid will penetrate more effectively through an exfoliated surface. Applying Salicylic Acid Exfoliant prior to Glycolic Acid will achieve a superior facial peel.
For optimal results, peels should be applied once a week for six weeks, followed by monthly peels. Awlays begin with light peels and progress to medium and deep peels. To help compliment and maintain the results of the peels, use Maintenance products in conjunction with your peel routine.
How do I decide which % to utilize?
Percentages amongst acids are difficult to navigate. A low percentage of one type of acid may be stronger than a lesser percentage of another acid. To give an estimate of the strength of the Glycolics and Salicylics I will do a little table of strength below to help you with choosing which acid and % is right for you.
Weakest - strongest * You will see that Salicylics are more irritating.
1. 3% Salicylic (very light peel).
2. 30% Glycolic
3. 50% Glycolic & 15% Salicylic (very close strengths).
4. 25% Salicylic
I have Normal Skin, what should I choose?
- Step #1 - Salicylic 3% + Glycolic 30%.
- Step #2 - Salicylic 3% + Glycolic 50%.
I have Oily (or tougher) skin, what should I choose?
- Step #1 - 3% Salicylic + 50% Glycolic.
- Step #2 - 15% Salicylic + 30% Glycolic.
- Step #3 - 15% Salicylic + 50% Glycolic.

SALICYLIC ACID Salicylic Acid, a Beta-Hydroxy Acid, is a highly effective superficial peeling agent and pore cleanser.
- Salicylic Acid loosens and removes aging cells, oil and debris attached to the skin surface, stimulates new skin cell production and increased collagen formation, is oil-soluble and lipophilic, thus it is able to penetrate sebum filled follicles and clean out clogged pores, resulting in marked improvement in acne prone skin.
GLYCOLIC ACID Glycolic Acid, otherwise known as Alpha-Hydroxy Acid, or Fruit Acid, is water-soluble and is one of the most effective exfoliation agents known.
Glycolic Acid : penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin, increases the rate of skin cell production and shedding, stimulates new collagen formation.

This my first time use Bi-phasic pell.Good result as far as I can see.
My spot and even some of the black head have been dryed.
The tone of my skeen is better.
I bought two types peeling.I coudn't wait to use the TCA 13.
A week after the Bi-phasic I did the TCA 13 peeling.
Tca worked more effectively for the aging spots but Bi-phasic worked better for the spots.It truely dry them.
The flaking for the Bi-phasic was very light.
But a bit more irritating for the skin than the TCA.
Not when I applied it ,I mean The Bi-phasic is great to apply because I didn't feel anything.
But after the treatment and even a week later I could see rosea on my cheeks.Usually it is almost imperceptible.
I think the Bi- phasic is more agressive than it looks.
On the contrary the TCA is terrible to apply but later the skin is pretty much ok.After a week flaking.
I will apply these peels again to adapt there uses according to my needs.
Bi- phasic to dry and make my skin cleaner.
TCA to renew my skin.
It's great! About 7 days 5
