AHA Peel

Glycolic/Lactic peels are excellent for resurfacing the skin while also increasing the moisture levels. It is applied to the skin in various strengths ranging from 20-30% for varying time frames depending on the desired result and skins response.

These peels loosen thickened surface layers that appear as dry, rough and scaly skin whilst stimulating the production of collagen in the deeper layers. As the uppermost layers are sloughed away, a smoother textured and healthier skin is revealed.

Glycolic peels are used to treat mild sun damage, pigmentation and congestion.

Glycolic and lactic peels are designed to be completed as a course of six, weekly or fortnightly sessions. More or less may be required depending on the condition being treated, your desired results, the strength of the peels and home skin care regimen.
