Essentially a skin peel will help to remove the top layers of your skin and reveal more youthful looking skin below. Additionally, the process will help to actively promote the natural production of collagen which will give you a healthier, fresher and smoother look.

Frequently asked skin peel questions
What Are Aestheticare Glycolic Peels?
Glycolic acid is one of the most effective, clinically proven Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) peels available. It increases exfoliation to produce outstanding results such as rejuvenating your skin and leaving skin softer, with a more youthful appearance.
How do Aestheticare Glycolic Peels work?
AesthetiCare glycolic Peels use a highly advanced combination of glycolic acid and taurine. The high levels of glycolic acid act as the peel agent while the taurine is there to soothe your skin and counter-act some of the negative effects commonly associated with skin peels. Taurine is an amino acid that helps reduce redness and irritation, without impacting on the positive work that the glycolic acid is doing.
How long do Aestheticare Glycolic Peels last?
Before the first in-clinic peel you will be given a home use exfoliating peel gel to use, which is a lower concentration. You should then continue to use this gel throughout the course of treatment as directed by your practitioner to enhance overall results.
Will Aestheticare Glycolic Peels be painful?
Each in-clinic peel will take approximately 20 minutes. It’s not uncommon to feel some discomfort during the first few minutes as the peel takes effect. Following the treatment your skin may be a little red, but this should soon subside. In the days following your treatment your skin will feel dryer and begin to exfoliate.
Are there any risks involved with Aestheticare Glycolic Peels?
It’s very important that you routinely wear high-level UV protection during the course of you peels as your skin will be more sensitive than usual. We recommend one of our products from the Heliocare range as they provide broad-spectrum SPF50 protection as a minimum, and contain powerful anti-oxidants.
