"The peel contains papaya fruit extract to reduce surface imperfections without irritation, in addition to encapsulated salicylic acid to exfoliate and unclog pores," enthuses Ibarra. "What's more, the LED blue light kills acne-causing bacteria on the spot." The result? Reduced acne and improved self-esteem, she says.

Do not rinse off. ✸ Allow the peel to remain on the skin for up to four hours. Instruct the client to use one Retinoic Towelette to cleanse at home after the initial application, and to wipe their face with a second towelette the following day. Blemish busters: Blending benzoyl peroxide, trichloroacetic acid, Retin-A, phenol, salicylic acid and vitamin C, this professional peel treats acne while boosting cell turnover and collagen production. To achieve optimal results, Melissa Haloossim, NP, the spa's cofounder and clinical director, advises clients to schedule an LED facial one to two weeks post-treatment. "This peel draws impurities to the surface, so I recommend a follow-up service to deep-clean the skin," she explains. "Within a few weeks, clients notice a clearer complexion and smaller pores." u
