Don’t be put off by the word ACID! Our Mandelic Acid Peel is a non-irritating and no downtime treatment, good for all skin types and skin tones. It is especially beneficial for those with sensitive skin that do not typically tolerate other types of chemical peels.
Mandelic Acid is a water and lipid/fat soluble acid, so it penetrates deep into the pores to loosen sebum. Working like an exfoliator, it increases cellular turnover and lifts away dead skin cells.
Benefits include reducing redness, minimizing mild sun damage and hyperpigmentation, improving the appearance of pore size, and smoothing fine lines and skin texture. Mandelic acid can also help those who suffer with acne. The exfoliating effect will help with clogged pores and improve the appearance of the discoloration left by acne scars. Mandelic acid reduces the redness often associated with inflammatory acne, with less side effects.
So, if you want brighter, smoother skin that glows, consider having a Mandelic Acid Peel! This treatment is even recommended during the sunny, summer months. The use of daily SPF 30+ is still recommended.
Our Glytone (40%) Mandelic Acid Peel should be done as a series of 4 with a minimum 10-14 days apart.
