Refinity Skin Solutions
Only Refinity products let you experience the benefits of medical strength alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) without the high irritation (stinging, burning and itching) commonly associated with this type of product.
Refinity products produce visible improvements in skin color, tone and texture, as well as a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Refinity products can be applied to the face, neck, hands and chest and are appropriate for people who are just beginning treatment, have sensitive skin or would like the benefits of higher strength products without the irritation.
Make Refinity skin products an important part of your total skin care regimen…and discover the gentle, yet effective way to look your very best.
AHA Maximum Results
The higher the strength, the greater the results. For AHAs to produce maximum results, a high level of acid must be made available to the skin. The higher the level of acid, the greater the exfoliation or skin renewal. However, increasing acid strength also increases the potential for skin irritation. So, while a higher strength is more effective, it can also be painful!
High strength AHA products and treatments are available only through a medical skin care professional. This medical strength is not available at a skin care salon or with department store products.
The Refinity Peel
With other peels, you often need to begin with a mild solution, and slowly increase the concentration until the desired strength can be tolerated. Now, there’s a faster, more comfortable way to get a high performance peel.
Refinity Peel is the only AHA peel formulated with COSMEDERM-7™, a clinically proven anti-irritant that helps provide comfort while delivering medical strength results. With Refinity Peel, you may achieve the skin-enhancing benefits of a high performance peel at your first treatment — even if you have sensitive skin.
How Long Does It Take to Perform a Refinity Peel?
A Refinity Peel is performed in the Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons Cosmetic Suite and lasts about 5 to 15 minutes. The entire treatment should take no more than half an hour.
What Can I Expect After My First Refinity Peel?
After treatment, most patients report that their skin feels softer and smoother, and that they’re able to resume their normal activities immediately. Any slight redness that may occur can be covered with makeup. Some patients may experience slight skin flaking in the few days following the treatment, but it is not necessary to see skin flaking for your peel to be effective.
How Often Can I Have a Refinity Peel?
Your medical skin care professional at Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons is best to advise you on the frequency of your Refinity Peel treatments. However, many patients have found that a Refinity Peel once a month is an effective part of their ongoing skin care regimen.
Additional Home-Use Products for Optimal Results
The Refinity Peel is designed to be used as part of a system with Refinity home-use products. Your treatment may begin with the peel to accelerate exfoliation, and then continue with Refinity home-use products and additional peels for best results.
The Refinity home-use regimen is a simple three-step program using:
• Refinity Purifying Cleanser
• Refinity Protective Toner
• Choice of exfoliating moisturizer — Refinity Rejuvenating Lotion (for normal skin), Refinity Rejuvenating Cream (for dry skin) or Refinity Rejuvenating HydroGel (for oily skin)
Refinity home-use moisturizers are formulated with a high concentration of lactic acid (15%) and the clinically proven anti-irritant COSMEDERM-7.

Are There Any Complications?
Complications with AHA products are rare. A consultation appointment with a medical skin care professional at Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons is recommended before a Refinity skin care regimen is started. Your medical skin care professional will be able to discuss your full medical history and provide product instructions to you. You can report any persistent redness, irritation or discomfort to them.
