Alpha Beta Jar

Peels

Antioxidant-rich facial peels contain potent anti-agers, including retinol, and alpha and beta hydroxy acids, to exfoliate, refresh, and nourish skin.

Alpha Beta Medi-Spa

Why a Peel?

Resurrect radiance, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores, and nourish with an essential peel. Peels containing multiple alpha and beta hydroxy acids gently exfoliate by detaching the top layer of dead skin cells, then provide nutrients to the renewed healthy skin below, and retinol peels exfoliate by encouraging fresh cells to surface faster, working together to achieve a brighter, refreshed complexion. NYC dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross formulated safe and easy-to-use peels for at-home use, based on those used on patients at his practice to help maintain a smoother, softer complexion.

What is a Peel?

Dr. Dennis Gross’ iconic peels are formulated to treat three common signs of aging: uneven tone and texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and enlarged pores – without causing irritation. Available in five formulas: Alpha Beta® Ultra Gentle, Universal (same Original Formula), Extra Strength, Medi-Spa, and Ferulic + Retinol Wrinkle Recovery for all skin types, containing a combination of alpha and beta hydroxy acids, antioxidants, and anti-agers. Alpha Beta® Peel step 1 is packed with rejuvenating powerful yet gentle exfoliating acids. Step 2 controls the alpha hydroxy acid activity and delivers anti-aging actives, nourishing skin, keeping it balanced, smooth, and radiant – perfectly prepped for a more effective skincare routine. Skin immediately looks refreshed and glowing.

How To Use It

Alpha Beta® Peels Apply step 1 pad to clean, dry skin, using circular motions. Continue application until pad feels dry. Wait two to five minutes, depending on your formula. Follow with step 2. For daily peels, apply in the same manner as step 1. For weekly peels, apply Firming Peptide Milk in upward motions. Do not rinse after either step. Avoid contact with eyes. Make sure to use sunscreen daily to help prevent photo-aging.
