Glycolic Peels are unique treatments which eliminates dead skin build up to allow the skin to glow with health. Glycolic Acid is the naturally occurring, non toxic Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) are a group of acids that are often found in fruit, sour milk, sugar and other products processed through bio-fermentation. AHAs are believed to be the first chemical peels used by doctors over the past decades. Pores are deeply cleansed and impurities are removed. The skin moisture levels and natural collagen production are improved, resulting in a clear and bright complexion with firmed and toned contours. Glycolic penetrates down to the deeper living layers of the skin where it changes the way skin is functioning, creating a younger and healthier skin. Glycolic peel is suitable for the face and neck, back, hands and chest.
