Therapeutic Approach: Mature skin can be dull and dry, so removing the top layer of dead cells helps curative serums and moisturizers penetrate better and work more effectively. The skin is usually thin as well, so it’s important to go slowly to avoid tearing.
In-Spa Treatment: Very gentle manual exfoliation; 20% lactic acid peel
Home-care Prescription: Mild alpha hydroxyl acids to slowly get skin in shape and prepare it for more aggressive in-spa treatment
