Pick of the Week: Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Face Peel

December 13, 2012

Is there a doctor in the house? There is in mine. I’ve got Dr. Brandt, Dr. Perricone, Dr. Jaliman and Dr. Hauschka right here in my bathroom. But for the past two weeks, Dr. Dennis Gross has been my primary beauty care physician. I’m using his Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel and I’m here to tell you it works. It’s a minor miracle, and I didn’t have to wait a week to see a difference. After the first micro-foliate peel my skin looked refreshed. By day three, I was luminous (if I do say so myself). By the end of the first week, my skin looked so even, pore-less and bright, I stopped needing tinted moisturizer. How to use this at-home two-step peel? Open the step one packet and apply the hydroxy acid and antioxidant-drenched pad to your face in a circular motion. Wait two minutes (just enough time to make the bed), then apply step two the same way. Both applications tingle - but differently. With step one, my face stung a tiny bit. With step two, it felt carbonated. Something was happening. Something did happen. A word about Dr. Gross: He’s double Board Certified – in dermatology and dermatological surgery. He’s done research at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the Rockefeller Institute and NYU’s Medical Center. The man spends real time in the lab. He’s serious about our body’s largest organ and it shows. -Patricia Volk
