What Is it Like to Get the PERFECT Derma Peel?
Your experienced med spa provider will begin by cleansing your skin and applying a thin layer of acetone. This optimizes the absorption of the peel into the outer layers of your skin. They will then apply the PERFECT Derma Peel with soft gauze. You will feel a mild to moderate warm or tingling sensation during this process.
Once your PERFECT Derma Peel is complete, we’ll give you a post-treatment kit and instructions to help maximize the peel’s effects and keep your skin moisturized during the peeling process.
Get More From Your Peel With a PERFECT Derma Booster
Feel like it’ll take extra work to help your skin? Your aestheticians can add a Derma Booster to create a more powerful peel to address more extensive damage. These boosters may extend your downtime by a day or 2, but the dramatic, targeted improvements are well worth it!
The PERFECT Derma Plus Booster
The Derma Plus Booster contains a higher concentration of the same acids used in the regular PERFECT Derma Peel to treat excessive hyperpigmentation from sun damage, melasma, acne scars, and actinic keratosis. If you have very thick or oily skin, the Derma Plus Booster is a great way to get optimal results from your peel.

A Few More PERFECT Derma Peel FAQs
Have more questions about The PERFECT Derma Peel? Learn all about it with these questions and answers from the skincare experts at LJC.
Q: Am I a good candidate for The PERFECT Derma Peel?
A: Safe for light and deep skin, gentle, and highly effective at improving a range of skin concerns, the PERFECT Derma Peel is pretty perfect for most people. However, it is not recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you have taken isotretinoin (Accutane) in the last year, you are allergic to aspirin, or you are still healing from laser skin resurfacing or other exfoliating treatments.
Q: When will I see results after The PERFECT Derma Peel?
A: The peeling process typically begins about 48 hours after treatment and is complete within about 5 days. After this, your skin will be noticeably smoother, clearer, and brighter. Regular makeup is allowed after a few days.
Most people are satisfied with their improvements after just 1 to 2 treatments, performed several months apart—you can thank the perfect combination of glutathione, Vitamin C, and the classic peel acids TCA, salicylic acid, and phenol in the PERFECT Derma Peel for the rapid, dramatic results. People with more extensive skin issues may benefit most from 2 to 3 treatments, spaced about a month apart.
Q: What’s so great about glutathione?
A: Glutathione is a protein-based antioxidant molecule that your body makes that defends cells (including skin cells) against stress, damage, and death. This super warrior princess of antioxidants tracks down and neutralizes free radicals (those unstable oxygen molecules that form as a result of UV radiation, stress, smoking, and other harmful things), keeping them from damaging your cells.
Unlike your average antioxidant, glutathione even helps other antioxidants, such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, ALA, CoQ10, do their job better. Research has shown that glutathione is so effective at offsetting free radical damage that it may even have an anti-cancerous effect.
With plenty of glutathione present, your skin cells can quickly repair damage, fight off would-be damage, and remain youthful and healthy. But as you might have guessed, the body makes less and less glutathione as we age, leaving skin more vulnerable to visible fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and other blemishes.
The PERFECT Derma Peel is currently the only peel on the market that includes glutathione. Even better, it contains glutathione in an optimal amount to give your skin what it needs to quickly regenerate healthier skin cells and dramatically improve in appearance.
