Glycolic Peel

Glycolic Peel is the best facial treament around at the current time. The Alpha Hydroxy acid 'Glycolic Peel' is exstracted from suger cane and has a very small molecular structure compared to the others in the AHA family. It can therfore get into the skin more effectivly than other subtances. It can not absorb into the body therfore it won't cause any side effect for you like some other chemical peels.

A glycolic peel can be applied with different percentages of glycolic acid. At Laser Skin Solutions we do a 40 percent glycolic peel enabling clients to have the skin rejuvenation they deserve, with the least possible side effects. This loosens the 'glue like' bondings that is part of many skin problems such as acne, ageing, skin discolouration and coarse texture. After a few weeks you will see the difference and the skin will become hydrated and smooth.

Glycolic acid helps reduce cell 'build up' by resurfacing the skin and the skin will feel softer, smoother, reducing the appreance of fine lines and wrinkles and reduces scarring. Clients see that Glycolic Peel is a relaxing expirence no burning or pain only a little tingling whilst the peel is put on. Redness usually goes by the time the face pack is removed. This treatment is called a lunchtime treatment as clients can go back to work after.

6 Jan Marini peels is recommended for optimum results over a period of 6 -12 weeks. But an individuals skin will be tested to see what freqency of Glycolic Peel is required.

Will I experience any ‘downtime’?

No, time off work isn't nessesary the only thing that can happen is that your skin could have redness for a maxiumum of 48 hours but most go away after 24 hours and you might not even have any redness what so ever. So there is no need for any downtime.

How many glycolic peels should I have?

We recommend 6 for a good course but everyone is different so you might need more or less. The question is it sun-damaged, prone to acne or just needs a freshining up.

What results can I expect to see from a glycolic acid peel?

Skin will feel smoother and appear more radiant. It will feel hydrated, soft and blemish-free. With less ‘debris’ lying on the surface of your skin in the form of dead skin cells, it means that products used at home will sink in better and get to work quicker. So many people spend a considerable amount of money on skincare which gets ‘used up’ by the dead skin cells on the surface of our skin which give skin it’s dull, lack-luster appearance.
