Glycolic skin peels are an exfoliating treatment using glycolic acid, a gel solution derived from sugar cane. Which removes cells on the surface layer of the skin. The glycolic gel dissolves the glue like substance in the stratum corneum allowing dead thickened layers to lift away without wounding the skin.
Why would you get a peel?
It significantly improves the appearance of sun damage, acne, Scaring, premature ageing and hyperpigmentation.
- Decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Stimulates collagen and elastin
- This treatment helps the skin to appear smoother, healthier, plumper and firmer.
What does the skin look like afterwards?
Referred to as the “Lunchtime Peel” redness following treatment is minimal, you should be able to return to your normal daily activities immediately. There is little or no actual peeling following the treatment, some people with dry skin may experience some mild flakiness in the days following treatment however most will not experience this.
What happens during the treatment?
The treatment begins by cleansing the skin of any impurities. Then the Glycolic gel is applied to the skin you may find the skin a little tingly and itchy but this sensation will be mild and will pass within a few minutes. Once the gel has been absorbed by the skin it will be rinsed using water and sponges. Then a chilled mask will be applied, specific to your skin type. Once removed we will apply a moisturizer and a sunscreen to protect the skin.

IMPORTANCE OF RECEVING REGULAR FACIALS
You may think that a facial is something you should have as a luxury or every once in a while .
The truth is that regular facilas are important for your skin.
As we get older, the metabolic rate of the skin slows down and it takes longer to renew itself, skin becomes thicker, duller looking and drier as oil glands become less active.
Exfoliation is essential in helping skin to renew itself.
Taking the dead layers away by exfoliating allows your skin care products to be absorbed deeper into the dermis which enables them to work deeper and have more benifits and faster results.
I offer many types of facials if you are not sure what suits you my consultations are complementry or i can advise you on the day of your treatment which one will benift your skin.
