Skin peels of varying descriptions have been used for thousands of years. According to historical accounts, ancient civilizations used masks composed of sour milk or wine residues to improve their appearance. Today, we may not use milk or wine, but chemical peels remain a proven method to help regain the smooth, healthy complexion you desire.Chemical peels can be used to treat wrinkles, sun spots and facial scarring. However, for deeper scars, laser resurfacing, scar excision, or soft-tissue fillers may be more effective. Peels are most commonly performed on the face and neck, although the chest, hands, arms, back and legs can also be treated depending on the type of peel that is used.

By varying the amount of chemical applied, you can get different depths of peel while using the same chemical agent. A deep peel results in the regeneration of collagen, the protein that is a major component in the body’s connective tissue. A superficial peel can achieve good results with repeated applications.

WHAT K&Z PEEL DOES

Kinerase Pro + Therapy K&Z Peel Peetis a two-component professional peeling system, consisting of a prepping solution and an in-office peel, which gently exfoliates the upper skin cell layers for a healthier, smoother, younger-looking complexion.

HOW K&Z PEEL WORKS

The K&Z Peel prepping solution opens the pores by warming the skin, which prepares the skin, therefore providing faster absorption and less irritation of the peeling solution.

The K&Z Peel exfoliates dead skin layers from the outer layer of the skin and stimulates epidermal cell turnover in the deeper skin layers, which minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration and uneven skin tone.
