Glycolic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) which is derived from sugar cane.
As we age, the skin's natural rejuvenation process of exfoliating the dead skin cells slows down, primarily due to environmental processes. The application of Glycolic Acid promotes this process, resulting in a noticeable difference in the overall appearance of the skin.
Glycolic Acid Peels promote a healthy youthful appearance by removing the skin's dry outer layer, resulting in a smoother and softer complexion which minimizes the visible signs of ageing.
Peels are available singularly or as a course of six. A pre-peel cream and a post-peel cream is supplied as part of the treatment.
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) Peels are available from the Consultants at Plastic Surgery Associates.
An appointment with our Cosmetic Surgery Advisor is required to ascertain whether peels would be appropriate.
