Skin Institute's AHA/Kojic peel utilizes alpha hydroxy acids, or AHAs, and kojic acid to piece together a peel with properties to pulverize blemishes, blotches, and bad skin. The AHA, common in many skincare products, exfoliates the epidermis, casting out dead skin cells like autumn leaves from the closet. AHA is also reported to iron out wrinkles and ax acne. Kojic acid, a natural by-product of a Japanese mushroom, helps to lighten spots of skin darkened by increased melanin deposits. Put in peel form, this clinical concoction cocoons facial skin, allowing a beautiful hummingbird of smooth skeletal sheathing to emerge after 45 minutes.
