How to Cocktail Chemical Peels

Posted by GlyMed Plus Education Team on

When it comes to performing any treatment or service for your clientele, chemical peels are the #1 way to offer the most variety in your treatment room. Chemical peels are going to remedy one of 3 things: acne, pigmentation, or aging. Some peels relieve multiple, but most peels will just focus on one condition. 

Peels are also formulated individually to be their own specific strength but not every client wants to receive the same depth of peel. Every client deserves their own peel and custom treatment for their concerns, schedule, and lifestyle. This makes it so important to know how to mix and match your treatments to cater to every single client you see.

The best way to be able to customize your services is by cocktailing your chemical peels! This will allow you to not only offer custom treatments, but to also make your backbar seem bigger than it really is. 

Who would say no to that?! Now the question is how do I do this?

The most important rule of thumb to follow with cocktailing chemical peels is if you mix an active ingredient with an active ingredient, the mixture will be more active. If you mix a non-active ingredient with an active ingredient, the mixture will be less active. This is good to know when you want to bump up or buffer down the aggression of a chemical peel. Using this rule to your advantage is the number one way to make your backbar seem bigger than it really is and will give you the ability to truly customize your services for each and every client.
