AHA Peels

Glycolic/Lactic acid peels 20-30% (AHA Peels)

Glycolic acid is an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA) which naturally occurs in sugar cane, it has the smallest molecular size of all the AHA's allowing it to better penetrate the skin. Lactic Acid is derived from milk and whilst it is excellent at resurfacing the skin it also increases skin's 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.  It loosens the thickened surface layers that appear as dry, rough, scaly skin and stimulates 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 loss of elasticity.

What are the advantages of having a series of glycolic/lactic peels?

  1. Helps to break down the cross linkages between aging skin cells
  2. Speeds up the cell turn over rate
  3. Helps stimulate collagen production and other skin molecules to produce plumper, more even skin
  4. Rejuvenated skin has a more youthful glowing appearance
  5. Fine lines may be reduced
  6. Age spots lightened
  7. General pigmentation problems may be reduced
  8. Acne improved and large pores become less prominent

How many treatments will I need?

4-6 peels at weekly intervals are recommended for noticeable improvements. 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.  Once you have achieved your desired results, maintenance peels are recommended at 2-3 monthly intervals combined with a daily AHA skin care regime to retain the benefits.  The ongoing skin care program uses advanced skin care products that contain a therapeutic level of AHA's at an active pH and other active ingredients.
