How do Skin Peels Work?
Your skin naturally sheds millions of skin cells every day, but the shedding process can come to a screeching halt due to sun damage, genetics, or various skin disorders. The not too pretty results are unmistakable dull, dry, clogged, enlarge pores, blackheads, flaky skin, wrinkles, loss of firmness and uneven skin tone.
To get rid of all that build up we use AHA’S (alpha hydroxy acids, such as glycolic and latic acids) and BHA’S (beta hydroxy acids, also known as salicylic) exfoliants come in to play.
Skin Peels use fruit acids such as Latic, Mendelic, Glycolic and Salicylic acid which are from natural derivatives.
The fruit acids in the peel solution penetrate in to the deepest layer of the skin, the dermis. This then speeds up the cell turnover which refreshes and promotes healthier, plumper skin cells the action rejuvenates the skin. In addition, the acids will help to un-clog pores, reduce inflammation and regulate excessive oil production.

Your skin Aesthetician will start by cleansing your skin this will help the active ingredients penetrate. Skin peels are applied to the skin for up to 5 minutes depending on skin sensitivity, and then washed off. The sensation of a skin peel will vary from person to person this is due to skin tolerance, skin condition, strength of peel and home care products being used. Most common feeling from skin peels are tingling, warmth and tightness. These all mean the active ingredients are penetrating the lower layers of the skin and are working effectively for maximum results.
