MEMPHIS, Tenn., Aug. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Last month, Theraplex introduced new Beta-Lift R at the annual Cosmetic Bootcamp Meeting in Aspen, Colorado. The two-step peel procedure was demonstrated by Dr. Diane Berson to over 150 physicians during a live patient demo. The peel received immediate interest by the attendees.
Beta-Lift R is a two-step procedure which begins with the application of a salicylic acid peel followed by an application of retinol. The procedure is designed to improve the appearance of photoaging, acne, melasma, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. "I love this peel, for my patients, because they can achieve rapid results with minimal down-time. It is ideal for all skin types including patients with rosacea," said Dr. Berson.
Dr. Douglas Kligman, the inventor of Beta-Lift R and co-author of a research study on the peel with Dr. Zoe Draelos which was published in the April 2016 issue of the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, also attended the Bootcamp and discussed the benefits to this novel approach. He explained how the Beta-Lift R peel differs from other combination peels on the market. "We found salicylic acid to be the preferred initial peeling agent over alpha hydroxy acid when used in combination with retinol peel procedures. This is primarily because salicylic acid, unlike alpha hydroxy acid, doesn't cause damage to the deeper layers of the epidermis. Preservation of this layer is essential for the storage of subsequently applied retinol and metabolism to retinoic acid," stated Dr. Kligman.
"For over twenty years, the Beta-Lift brand has been synonymous with quality and efficacious peels. We are excited to launch the next generation of the brand with Beta-Lift R. This patented, innovative peel uniquely enhances retinol unlike any other combination peel on the market. Initial patient feedback has been very positive and we feel this procedure is a great fit for versatile cosmetic practices," said Kimble Jenkins, Theraplex President.
