Peels

Glycolic Acid Peels

  This peel is perfect for perking up rough, dull or mildly sun damaged skin 

  Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid derived from sugar cane 

•  It works via subtle exfoliation and stimulation of skin turn over 

  The peel takes about 20 minutes and is repeated 4 to 6 times a few weeks apart 

  There can be mild stinging during the procedure and some short lived mild redness. Post treatment peeling is uncommon

Salicylic Acid Peels

  Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxyl acid, derived from the bark of the willow tree 

  It has a high affinity for oils, making it particularly helpful in acne patients, especially if blackheads are a problem 

  It is also helpful in freshening up dull or mildly sun damaged skin 

  The peel takes about 20 minutes and is repeated 4 to 6 times a few weeks apart 

  There can be mild stinging during the procedure and some short lived mild redness. Fine peeling can occasionally occur a few days later

Vitalize Peel

  Ideal to restore the glow to sun damaged, dull post summer skin 

  It uses a combination of lactic acid, resorcinol and salicylic acid 

  The cherry on the cake is the added application of a retinoic solution to maximize the extent and depth of improvement 

  This peel is repeated 3 times about 3 to 4 weeks apart 

  Some very light flaking can occur at day 3 or 4
