Glycolic Chemical Peel: Unveiling Radiant Skin for Most Skin Types (III-VI)

Unlock the secrets to revitalized skin with our Glycolic Chemical Peel, designed to cater to a broad range of skin types (III-VI)*. This transformative peel targets fine lines, wrinkles, lackluster complexion, age spots, and acne scars, offering a comprehensive solution for skin rejuvenation.

Key Benefits:

  1. Enhanced Skin Density: With regular use, Glycolic acid significantly improves skin density, resulting in thicker and more resilient skin. Experience a noticeable bounce and suppleness that rejuvenates your overall skin texture.

  2. Exfoliating Power: Acting as a potent exfoliant, Glycolic acid, being highly acidic and soluble, penetrates beneath damaged skin areas and effectively "melts" away the top layer of dead skin. This process reveals a fresher, more vibrant complexion.

  3. Minimal Downtime - Maximum Care: Our chemical peel is designed for minimal downtime, yet it requires extra care. After the peel, indulge your skin in a soothing serum, a lipid-rich moisturizer, and don't forget to apply physical sunscreen with ingredients like zinc oxide to shield your skin.

  4. Precautions for Photosensitivity: It's essential to note that Glycolic Peel increases photosensitivity. Post-treatment, it is crucial to avoid direct sun exposure. Ensure extra protection with appropriate measures like sunscreen to safeguard your skin from potential damage.

  5. Advanced Strength for Regular Users: For those accustomed to regular glycolic acid use in their skincare routine, our 25% Glycolic acid strength is recommended. This advanced formula ensures continued effectiveness for users familiar with the benefits of glycolic acid.

  6. Visible Results Beyond Peeling: It's important to understand that visible peeling may not always occur with a glycolic acid peel. However, improvements in skin texture, tone, and overall appearance are consistently achieved. Even for those who exfoliate regularly, the positive transformations happen beneath the surface layers.

Experience the rejuvenating power of our Glycolic Chemical Peel—your pathway to radiant and revitalized skin, regardless of whether visible peeling occurs. Embrace the journey to a healthier and more vibrant complexion.

*Skin Types (III-VI) refer to the Fitzpatrick scale, which classifies skin types based on how they respond to UV light.

*The following list shows the six categories of the Fitzpatrick scale in relation to the 36 categories of the older von Luschan scale (in parenthesis):[6][7]

  • Type I (scores 0–6) always burns, never tans (palest; freckles).
  • Type II (scores 7–13) usually burns, tans minimally
  • Type III (scores 14–20) sometimes mild burn, tans uniformly
  • Type IV (scores 21–27) burns minimally, always tans well (moderate brown)
  • Type V (scores 28–34) very rarely burns, tans very easily (dark brown)
  • Type VI (scores 35–36) never burns (deeply pigmented dark brown to darkest brown)

RECOMMENDED USE

Before applying, be familiar with precautions. Cleanse the skin thoroughly. Gently patch the skin dry. Wait five more minutes for the skin to be completely dry (water neutralize glycolic acid). Apply the peel evenly with an applicator ( you can spray on cotton or fingers and gently pat the skin. Leave on  for 3-10 minutes - depending on skin sensitivity -  you can gradually increase how long you leave it on - best every 2 weeks or every 5th peel treatment - whatever comes first. Avoid eye and mouth area. Remove peel by flushing thoroughly skin with cool water.

May repeat treatment 1-2 times a week. Don’t repeat the treatment if skin feels irritated - wait till it’s fully recovered.

A physical Sunblock must be worn daily. Its best to avoid prolonged sun exposure for 1-week post peel.

Glycolic Acid vs Lactic Acid

Glycolic acid:

Smaller molecular size penetrates skin more easily.

Best for sun damaged skin: boosts collagen production and thickens skin.

Although it can increase overall thickness, it also temporarily thins skin.

Lactic acid:

Larger molecular size, doesn’t penetrate skin as well.

Best for dry, sensitive and acne prone skin. Lactic acid is more moisturizing and less irritating.
