35% GLYCOLIC PEEL

This is an advanced peel to achieve a deep exfoliation resulting in glowing skin. Glycolic acid is able to provide multiple benefits including enhanced exfoliation, alleviation of dryness, improvement of cell differentiation, stimulation of collagen production, evening out of pigmentation, minimising of fine lines and wrinkles, controlling the effects of sun damage, improved skin thickness and results in the appearance of smooth and radiant skin.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

A safe, controlled and predictable procedure that gradually removes surface skin cells resulting in improvement of skin texture. Of all skincare actives, glycolic acid molecule is the smallest which increases the speed of absorption into the skin. This also improves the penetration and enhances the activity of other therapeutic agents and ingredients, making them even more effective for the client.

 

HOW DOES IT FEEL?

It is very relaxing, you may feel a slight tingle on your skin.
