Glycolic Acid is a member of the Alpha Hydroxy Acid or AHA family and is derived from the fruit sugar acid. Some well-known acids are citric acid from citrus fruit, lactic acid from milk, and tartaric acid from wine.
For centuries people worldwide have made use of this naturally occurring acid in improving the look and feel of their skin. A Glycolic peel is simply a process that removes the top, dead-skin layer of your skin to reveal fresh skin beneath. This also stimulated cells to divide into healthier cells.
Glycolics can be used on dry skin, dull ageing skin, ingrown hair, pigmentation and is especially good for oily skin. As acne and breakouts occur due to the clogging of a pore by the accumulation of dead skin, Glycolic peels are able to prevent the re-occurrence of acne by simply ridding the dead skin cells, the outer most superficial layer of the skin.
Glycolic peels removes old, damaged cells on the top layer of skin and as a result it smoothens and softens the skin, diminishes fine lines, decreases acne outbreaks, evens out skin tone coloration and lightens hyper pigmented areas.
Glycolic Acid is a 100% non-toxic substance. Our Glycolic Acids have been approved by the TGA and The FDA. It is necessary that you use Sunblock during and after your Glycolic Peel course.
