At Good Health Rejuvenation, a skin savior repairs dingy dermis with two types of Glytone chemical peels. A salicylic-acid peel gently wipes away excess oil, dirt, and chalk drawings of Conrad Bain from blemish-prone skin on a client's face, back, and chest, and the glycolic-acid peel irons out fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, leaving skin looking millions of seconds younger. Clients can then procure medical-grade skincare products such as a mild gel or cream wash ($29), facial cream ($42–$46), or exfoliating lotion ($32–$38) to continue their skincare regimen at home. Though rare, side effects for both peels can include mild pain and itching and can last for up to a week.
