Chemical peels, much like laser resurfacing are employed to induce trauma to the skin. By inducing trauma, the skin responds by producing more skin cells among other healing factors in order to heal itself. What makes RxESCUESKIN unique is that by supporting the skin’s natural process of renewal, specifically with out core stem cell derived active, we are able to help promote that same growth without the need to induce trauma. So, in a sense, RxESCUESKIN is like having a chemical peel without the need to directly damage your skin. In instances where you are going to get a chemical peel, or laser treatment, we strongly recommend you use RxESCUESKIN both before and after. By using it before, you will already help to support more immediate healing once you have the treatment; the same with post. In addition to our core active, the Cellular Support Serum has many other supportive ingredients that will help contribute to healthy skin function.
