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
