Treatment - Glycolic Skin Peel
What is it?
There are many different types of skin peels. A Glycolic acid peel is a superficial peel. This is ideal if you want to replenish your skin and freshen your appearance. Glycolic acid peels have no recovery time and normal activity can be resumed immediately. If you are interested in a deeper peel we recommend an Obagi blue peel.

Summary of your treatment
Frequently asked questions
A glycolic acid peel is generally used to exfoliate and replenish the skin, treating lines and wrinkles, acne, acne scars, pigmentation and sun damaged skin. Different degrees of acid peel work to give different results.
The procedure involves applying the solution to the area to be treated. This then speeds up the cell renewal process of the skin tissue, revealing a new layer of refreshed invigorated skin tissue.
The result of a glycolic acid peel is a brighter, fresher, luminous skin.
You may experience temporary redness, dryness, flakiness or hyper-sensitivity for a short period following the treatment that generally subsides within 24 hours. For deeper skin peels, you may experience some peeling of the skin tissue. This normally occurs 24 hours following the treatment and lasts for approximately 2-4 days.
A full list of side effects, cautions and contraindications will be discussed at the consultation with Deborah Forsythe. If you prefer, please call us to discuss prior to your appointment.
We recommend a SPF 50 following treatment of a skin peel. We will also suggest a suitable moisture cream post treatment.
