Superficial Chemical Peels
Chemical, or glycolic peels are a light non-invasive treatment which removes the upper layers of dead and damaged skin. This in turn encourages skin cell regeneration and provides gentle treatment for fine lines, acne, chronic dry skin, dull skin, pores and blackheads and uneven pigmentation. Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that occurs naturally in sugar cane and is the most common ingredient of light chemical peels.The formulation of the solution is tailored to the individual patient in order to provide the best results.
The procedure takes approximately 20 minutes and there is minimum downtime, which means this can be carried out within a lunch hour! Skin feels immediately fresh and hydrated after the treatment. The action of the chemical solution stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, essential components of healthy, youthful skin.
