Glycolic Skin Peels

Glycolic Acid peels can bring great benefits to the skin and have been used successfully on many thousands of people. The Alpha Hydroxy Acid “Glycolic Peel” is derived from sugar cane and has the smallest molecular structure of the AHA family and therefore can penetrate into the skin successfully. It is not absorbed into the body and will not cause any systematic side effects, like chemicals used in other peels.

A gentle chemical peel can be performed with varying percentages of glycolic acid. This acid loosens the glue like attachments that is characteristic of many skin conditions such as aging signs, acne, skin discolouration and coarse texture. After just a few weeks you skin looks brighter, clearer and dry skin becomes hydrated and smooth. Glycolic acid helps reduce cells building up at the lower levels of the skin. This procedure will resurface the skin giving a dramatically softer, smoother texture, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and reducing scarring. A course of six peels is recommended to achieve optimum results.

The Treatment

The skin is cleansed, and then the glycolic acid is gently applied. You may experience a mild stinging sensation which normally disappears within one minute. The acid peel is left in place for a period of time that will be assessed by your practitioner, and then it is removed.

Afterwards your skin may flake a little, or be pink, this is all normal.
