Glycolic Peel

If you would like to uncover a smoother, more youthful looking skin, a Glycolic Peel is a good
treatment to consider. 
Glycolic Acid, an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), is a naturally occurring
substance that
removes the surface layer of the skin consisting of dead skin cells, leaving your face looking and feeling younger and fresher! 

A natural antioxidant for oily, acne-prone skin.

The botanical properties of Glycolic Acid help to treat many skin conditions, and because of its exfoliating power it is considered the ‘holy grail’ in treatments of acne scars and pigmentation. The Glycolic Peel will show the best results when done in a series of treatments – we generally recommend a series of six treatments, performed weekly or bi-weekly. The procedure consists of a cleansing routine, followed by a gentle application of the glycolic acid as a face mask. The treatment may cause some tingling sensation and you may experience some redness after the treatment. However, the redness clears up in a short while. Over the next few days after the treatment, your skin will continue to flake the dead skin cells off – this is your skin undergoing the cell renewal process. What you are left with is a clearer brighter skin that feels fresh and younger.
