What is the Elaine Brennan GetGlowing Micro-peel?
The GetGlowing Micro-Peel is a treatment in which a cream is applied to the skin to encourage the exfoliation of dead skin cells and debris while stimulating the skin’s natural renewal process. The GetGlowing Micro-peel is tailored to fit your individual skin type and long-term goals.


Why was the GetGlowing Micro-Peel Formulated?

The Micro-Peel was created for the client who cannot afford the down time of the Elaine Brennan Skin Renewal Peeling as well as for clients looking for a less expensive option. 


What results will I see?
The GetGlowing Micro-peel is designed to refine skin texture damaged by environmental factors and skin conditions such as acne. The procedure assists in smoothing fine lines and evening out skin discoloration. It improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of acne scars and environmental damage to the skin. The GetGlowing Micro-Peel is a mild peeling which will lightly exfoliate the skin leaving it refreshed and soft. With each additional Micro-Peel procedure, you will notice incremental improvements in the overall appearance of the skin.


How many treatments do I need?
A single peel or a series of three will yield results that you may be happy with.

For maximum results, we recommend a series of Six GetGlowing Micro-Peel procedures in two to six week intervals, depending on the skin type and what we are trying to achieve.  


Will I experience any downtime?
For approximately one week following the procedure, the skin will undergo a renewal process, lightly shedding its dead outer layer. Depending on your skin, you may or may not experience peeling. If peeling occurs, it usually begins four to five days following the treatment and lasts for approximately three days. In addition, you may experience mild itching, dryness and redness.


How long does the treatment take? 

You will need to be in the treatment room for about 45 minutes for the peel portion. Adding the peel to a facial or deep-cleansing service is also an option.


What are the actives in the GetGlowing Micro-Peel

The active ingredients are Resorcinol, Kojik Acid and Salicylic acid. 


  • Resorcinol works by breaking down rough, scaly or hardened skin and is used to treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, seborrhea, photo aging, solar keratoses, epidermal atrophy and improves skin tone and unevenness.

  • Kojik Acid works on melanocytes interfering with the production of melanin. It has excellent skin-lightening abilities and is classified as an antioxidant.

  • Salicylic Acid is used to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis, acne, oily skin, blackheads and whiteheads. It directly dissolves the keratin plugs to regulate the skins cells acting as an exfoliant. Salicylic acid improves collagen production and thickness of the skin. It has anti-inflammatory properties.


What prevents me from being a candidate for this peel?
