This is an extremely in-depth chemical peel course which provides you with everything you need to know/do to perform excellent treatments and outcomes that your clients will love.

This course is based on Ekseption Peels, where less than the best isn't your style!

  • Cruelty free, not tested on animals
  • Ethically sourced raw materials
  • Safe and effective treatments
  • Skin friendly peels (alcohol and preservative free)
  • DMKS delivery technology

It is a brand built around the belief that significant skin health improvement requires professional treatments to address key concerns (such as wrinkles,laxity, pigmentation and more), with advanced homecare.  The homecare prepares, complements and protects the professional treatments by helping to prevent the appearance of future damage, protect healthy skin and correct visible signs of ageing.

In addition:

  • Unlike conventional brands on the market, the peels are unique, as they offer maximum results with extreme comfort.
  • There are now 13 peels in the range treating a wide spectrum of conditions
  • Ekseption peels do not contain preservatives such as ammonium hydroxide, tromethamine or other harmful buffers
  • The pH of the peels is stabilised with sodium lactate, a component of the natural moisturising factor with keratolytic functions
  • They are FREE from alcohol which provides maximum comfort at the point of application
  • Ekseption is the only brand to offer Mandelic and Salicylic alcohol free peels
  • The peels have a low surface tension due to dmks technology which results in a more even application of the peel
  • The peeling solutions provide perfect contact with the skin compared to conventional peel
  • Ekseption peels have the most innovative formulas with peptides and hyaluronic acid
  • They contain Polyhydroxy acids (PHA’s) which are more respectful of the skin
  • They are the only brand available with dmks technology which removes irritation, burning sensation, itching and downtime
  • Ekseption is a complete program of professional peels and unique homecare products, that when combined together they result in no downtime for the client or disturbance to their homelife or lifestyle
  • Only a short course of weekly peels is required to achieve impressive results
  • The resurfacing skincare is high quality in terms of packaging, formulations, and incorporates the latest delivery systems with skincare textures that are extremely appealing to the client.
  • The price point of the resurfacing skincare is very attractive for both professional and retail products.
