Healthy Skin Matters

Your skin is the body's largest organ and many factors impact it's health. When your skin is healthy, it's layers work hard to protect itself. But, when compromised, the skin's ability to protect itself is impaired. As a result, pH formula has found the best approach to improving your skin's health and to support your skin in it's protective role.

'Controlled chemical skin resurfacing is not just a matter of applying acids to the skin- it's an art, an understanding and a passion.'

Petru van Zyi - Founder of pH Formula


Peels vs Resurfacing

Traditional chemical peels using high concentrations of acids can cause tissue damage, tissue death (necrosis) and inflammation.

pH formula uses unique controlled chemical resurfacing. Controlled chemical resurfacing depends not only on the choice, nature & concentration of acids, but also on its availability to deliver these into the skin. pH formula has a unique ‘delivery complex’ that facilitates the maximum delivery of protons, in a uniform manner, without causing excessive skin irritation.

With no post procedural redness or tightness, the biggest single benefit to pHformula resurfacing is no downtime, no visible ‘peeling’ and no impact on social interactions.

The unique combination of alpha and beta hydroxyl acids as well as antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, vitamins, and trace elements within pHformula stimulate cellular repair and turnover; in turn increasing collagenesis and improving elastin fibres, inhibit pigmentation producing enzymes and excess oil production as well as regulating and suppressing the symptoms associated with sensitive skin.

Practitioners and patients alike report near 100% patient satisfaction remarking on an immediate improvement in the softness, radiance and integrity of the skin.

All treatments and formulae used are supported by more than 30 years of combined scientific and medical experience.

'Knowledge is knowing that acids peel the skin.

Wisdom is applying acids that do NOT peel,

But REBUILD the skin.'

Petru van Zyi - Founder of pH Formula
