Dermalogica PowerClear Peel

As part of the brand’s professional Power Peel line, Dermalogica has developed the PowerClear Peel. With 2% salicylic, 10% mandelic and 15% malic acid, the complex targets blemishes, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, scarring and redness. The formula also features Dermalogica’s patented terpineol-thymol (T-T) complex to reduce sebum and regulate the microbiome, preventing further breakouts. The pro peel formula can be used with other Dermalogica peels but the treatment must follow the brand’s core protocol on services. Trade: £67.50 0800 917 7147
