Deep Chemical Peels No Longer a Risky Business

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- This year, millions of consumers will undergo deep chemical peels to combat wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, and acne scars.  Such peels penetrate the skin, causing it to peel and regenerate.  But this procedure may have side effects that aren't pretty.  The classic deep peel carries the risk of scarring and infection and must be performed in a hospital under general anesthesia — a risky business itself.

Now, two prominent scientists have revolutionized the procedure with the invention of PHA, a virtually risk-free deep chemical peel that achieves outstanding results and can be performed in a doctor's office without general or local anesthesia. This giant leap in anti-aging science is the latest achievement of Dr. Michelle Volinsky, known simply as Dr. Michelle, and Dr. Vartan Libaridian, known as Dr. Vartan, both of Cosmoceutical Research Center.

Before, a deep chemical peel required a week of down time and several months of recovery. PHA has eliminated the intense inflammation, swelling, and blistering associated with other deep peels, so people can immediately return to work and achieve dramatic rejuvenation within a week ... without any health risk.

Dr. Michelle is a pioneering organic chemist whose cosmeceutical formulas are in demand worldwide.  Dr. Vartan, a specialist in transdermal penetration, brought famous skin-care products to the marketplace as technical director of Neutrogena. Together, Drs. Michelle and Vartan hold several patents and have originated some of the most successful formulas in the skin-care industry.

Dr. Vartan points out, "Many cosmetics contain insufficient amounts of the active ingredients because of the expense, and most products lack a viable transdermal delivery system. Without permeating the skin barrier, cosmeceuticals are of little benefit."

"CRC was founded in 1995 to create safe skin treatments whose active ingredients are present in the correct concentration and safely administered through our patented transdermal delivery system," says Dr. Michelle. "Our deep peel is aggressively effective but gentle as a feather. That reflects our concern for our customers and our reason for being."
