SkinBetter AlphaRet Exfoliating Peel Pads feature the award-winning retinoid, AlphaRet, a unique technology that is made up of a combination of a retinoid and an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), along with a triple-acid blend of glycolic, lactic and salicylic acid, in individually packaged pads.

You'll love additional exfoliation, improvement in the appearance of skin smoothness, clarity, lines and wrinkles. The proprietary combination of AlphaRet and a triple-acid complex (glycolic, lactic and salicylic) provides additional exfoliation and skin rejuvenation benefits.

I swear by these pads for anti-aging, acne, texture, hydration, and pigmentation. Each AlphaRet Exfoliating Peel Pad contains 20% AHA+BHA and a Retinoid, which is the same solution I use at my med spa. They are great to throw in your bag for travel. For most clients, I recommend starting with 2 peel pads a week and increase to 3 if needed. The solution works everywhere on the body, so keep applying to areas until the pads are bone dry. (such as elbows, knees, etc.)
