Superficial peeling treatments, such as glycolic peels, use enzymes to exfoliate and refresh dull-looking skin; gentle yet effective, this type of peel works on the uppermost layer to reveal healthy, new skin cells. It also stimulates rejuvenation in the lower layers of your skin to help your skin look fresh and healthy.
Face peels are available in different concentrations so once your aims have been discussed and your skin thoroughly analysed you practitioner will match you with the most appropriate strength peel for you. One of the many benefits of Glycolic peels is that there is little-to-no downtime and any discomfort is very minimal; usually, the patient will experience a tingling sensation in the treatment area during the procedure.
Alpha Hydroxy Acid
The Alpha Hydroxy Acid face peel includes glycolic and lactic acids. Glycolic peels are also known as AHA exfoliants which have the potential for improving hydration, reducing wrinkles, stimulating collagen production, and firming skin. They can also help to reduce discolouration from sun damage and the visible marks left after an acne breakout. They’re great if you have superficial pigmentation, the first signs of ageing, or you want to brighten a dull complexion.
