    Patients with Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) are always colonized, but rarely infected with bacteria. Even then, it is poorly understood why antibiotics don’t work well for them.

The medium 50% peels are for clients who have experienced prior peels,  or who have more mature skin with definite sun damage and uneven skin tones. The 60% – 70% peels are much deeper strengths for a much more mature and sun damaged skin with uneven tones also in need of deep rejuvenation.
