At Skin Health Spa we have been working with peels for over 15 years. We have created carefully designed protocols to target every skin condition and often get requests for healthier, glowing skin and for a reduction in appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
We use advanced cosmeceuticals to target individual needs, to change and improve your skin in weeks. At Skin Health Spa our experienced practitioners provide an in-depth consultation setting up a skin management program to fit your needs. This is combined with treatments at our clinic including 40%/70% Glycolic peels or micro-peels for ultimate skin rejuvenation.
At Skin Health Spa we have worked with the Glycolic resurfacers for many years offering a medical peel that is unique and a viable alternative to the more invasive peels. The Glycolic Peel is an excellent treatment for patients who wish to avoid a recovery period as no down time is required. The treatment gives the skin a clear, bright, smooth appearance, even after one application. Good results can also be achieved for improving acne, hyper-pigmentation, mild scaring, rosacea and problematic hormonal breakouts.
This facial will resurface the skin, providing dramatically softer, smoother texture; reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Glycolic acid helps reduce the "build up" at the lower levels of the skin. There is no recovery time: immediately after the treatment you can apply make-up and continue with your day.
A gentle glycolic acid peel can be performed with varying percentages of glycolic acid, a substance derived from sugar cane. Glycolic acid loosens the glue-like attachments or cellular cement that is characteristic of many skin conditions such as ageing, acne, skin discolouration and coarse texture. After just a few weeks your skin looks brighter, clearer and dry skin becomes hydrated and smooth. Recommended amount of treatments are 6 treatments in 6-12 weeks.
The depth of the resurfacing peel is controlled by three factors:
•The concentration of the solution
•The length of time it is applied,
•The preparation of the skin.
It is therefore important to appreciate that all individuals who wish to have glycolic peels must be on a home care programme, using glycolic acid based products for at least two weeks prior to the first peel and also during the course of peels.
