Glycolic AHA40 Skin Peel - Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS A SKIN PEEL?
Skin peels are a quick, non invasive treatment that has no downtime or post treatment peeling. Glycolic peels are good for all skin types (apart from rosacea). It has a powerful antimicrobial action which is good for helping with: fine lines, uneven skin tone/texture, hyperpigmentation, photo damage, large pores, acne, regulation of oily and dry skin.
HOW DOES A SKIN PEEL WORK?
Glycolic Acid (a type of alpha hydroxy acid derived from sugar cane and beets) penetrates through the upper layer of the epidermis. It weakens the lipids that hold dead skin cells together and results in them dissolving. Due to its small molecule size, it penetrates faster and deeper at cellular level. This then stimulates cell renewal and will leave your skin feeling soft and revitalised.
DOES A SKIN PEEL HURT?

It is understandable that the idea of a skin peel containing an acid sounds like it may hurt….it honestly doesn’t!! The glycolic peel only stays on the skin for 1 minute before being neutralised ( you will feel a mild tingling during this time). Neutralising is then repeated until the tingling has totally gone, meaning the skin Ph is at its correct level.

A recovery serum is then applied to ensure you have skin feeling rejuvenated.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Several treatments may be required to achieve the best results

We recommend the following:

  • Weekly peel for a total of 4 weeks
  • Then 2-4 week treatment break
  • A follow up maintenance plan of mesotherapy or micro needling
  • Included in the price of your treatment will be an aftercare serum for use at home post treatment.

ARE THERE REASONS I CANT HAVE THIS TREATMENT?
A list of contraindications to this treatment will be discussed with your practitioner prior to appointment. These will also be discussed during consultation along with a medical questionnaire.
