How does it work?
This peel uses 2 main ingredients – Glycolic Acid (30% or 50%) and Taurine (1%). The Glycolic Acid instantly smooths the skin’s surface creating radiance. As this acid penetrates into the skin, it stimulates the cell renewal to bring all the new healthy cells to the surface whilst exfoliating and lightening pigmentation. The Taurine is added as it has a brilliant bonus of being an Anti-Oxidant!
Throughout your journey with us we can build up the intensity of the peel meaning you can see a noticeable improvement with each treatment.
What concerns does this peel treat?
Due to the nature of the ingredients its ideal for Anti-Ageing, Mild Pigmentation, Dull Skin and Post Acne Scarring but is great for any skin type. It would be great to start with this treatment before you progress on to our more advanced peels – to strengthen the skin and get the optimum results.
Why should I have this treatment?
The G&T peel (30% or 50%) is specifically designed for those with concerns of ageing, fine lines and wrinkles and general dullness. It uses glycolic acid and Taurine to stimulate cell renewal, instantly improving the texture for skin that has a slightly thicker appearance. It lightens surface pigmentation and smooths post inflammatory scarring left over from acne. Throughout your treatments, skin will become firmer, hydrated and even in skin colour.

This treatment is designed for the facial areas however if you wish to have your body treated please speak to a member of our team who would be happy to recommend the right treatment plan.
