The SD Ferullic Peel (by Simildiet) is a low pH combination peel, containing Ferullic Acid (which is an excellent anti-oxidant), Malic Acid, Citric Acid and Lactic Acid. This predominantly alpha hydroxy combination formulation has been designed to be a comfortable, no downtime anti-ageing and age-prevention treatment.
The unique acid combination has proven to make the peel a fantastic “all-rounder” as the ingredients work synergistically to prevent and treat the signs of ageing. The treatment is great as a monthly maintenance option, or as a booster for the skin, or give the skin a healthy, radiant glow prior to an upcoming event.
The SD Ferullic Peel treatment would benefit anyone suffering from:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Mild sunspots
- Poor hydration
- Slow, sluggish skin cell turn over (poor natural exfoliation)
- Superficial pigmentation
- As monthly maintenance treatment
A patient may require anything from 6 to 8 treatments to start off with (1 treatments every 14 days). Thereafter, the skin needs to be re-assessed and if needed a second course of treatments prescribed. Once the best possible results are achieved, it is necessary to be on a maintenance plan to ensure that the skin remains in a great condition. One can sunspots on the SD Ferullic peel but drop the treatment frequency to once every 4-6 weeks once the initial results are achieved.
During the procedure itself, one should experience little to no discomfort as the peel is a very superficial, comfortable treatment. Because of the slow penetrating nature of lactic and malic acid (as opposed to other alpha hydroxy acids), the peel feels much more tolerable and the peeling depth is very easily controlled. The anti-oxidant and brightening properties of ferulic and citric acid makes the peel an excellent option for age-prevention.
Immediately after the peel, the skin may appear quite pink and in most cases, this will dissipate very quickly,
The skin will be in “recovery mode” for about 3 days, in very rare cases, you may start to flake (but in most cases, there will be no visible flaking with this peel). This peel may be repeated every 2 weeks for optimum results. It’s a great option to do 2 weeks before an event, to give the skin a fresh, healthy, radiant glow.
All skin types can benefit from this peel. It is an excellent “all-rounder” treatment for all skin types, no matter one’s age or skin condition.

After trying everything and everywhere to treat my Keloids, the Brooklyn Skin Renewal has lived up to my expectations. The staff are super friendly and helpful, informing you if every step and methods being carried out. I have seen a great reduction in side of my keliods since I started treatment, this after I lost hope in ever having something done about them. Everything is professionally, and I felt I am in good hands.
Tammy has been my therapist for about a year now. Her standards are exceptional. Her advice is always first class and backed by explanations. She is friendly and professional. Definitely the reason I keep coming back!
