How does it work?
Glycolic Acid gives a gentle exfoliation action with hydrating properties. Meanwhile, the Lactic Acid brightens the skin. Stimulated cell turnover brings up all the new healthy cells, creating an even skin tone and reducing pore size. The sebum production is also regulated by this treatment.
Glycolic Acid, an Alpha Hydroxy Acid, sloughs off the dull dry skin cells that build up over time. By chemically exfoliating them away, you’ll see instantly smoother, brighter skin. It will also help to increase cell turnover – addressing general dullness. You could think of it as giving yourself a glow massage!
Lactic Acid, another Alpha Hydroxy Acid, exfoliates cells on the surface of the skin by breaking down the glue that holds skin cells together. This encourages cell renewal.
Will it work for my skin type?
This peel is for everyone. It can be tailored to your skin if it’s oily, dry, dehydrated or showing the first signs of ageing. It’s optimal for sensitive skin and usable for all Fitzpatrick skin types. With having a combination of Glycolic and Lactic Acid your skin will instantly feel smoother, hydrated and brighter. The downtime is minimal and this peel can be fitted around other existing treatments.

How many treatments will I need?
A course of three treatments is great for someone with mild skin concerns looking for a radiance boost. Six treatments may be needed for someone who has ageing or mild acne concerns.
Q: How much downtime is there after treatments?
A: There are no long-term damaging effects to the skin from peels; however, you may have some downtime and peeling with some of our strongest peels. Your practitioner will explain the possibility of downtime with you before starting the treatment. They’ll also discuss the possibility of working up to stronger peels if you want to increase them gradually. Using the recommended preparatory products before treatment will also help minimise the dryness/peeling. They ensure the skin is ready and safe before treatment.
Q: How regularly should I have treatment?
A: You can have just one treatment before a special occasion. We recommend having one every two weeks if purchasing a course.
Q: Does this treatment hurt?
A: No, this treatment is very relaxing but effective.
Q: How is this treatment different to others?
A: This treatment naturally exfoliates the skin and hydrates deep down in the layers of the epidermis. This is a far more advanced treatment than a facial as we use cosmeceutical-grade products and higher quantities of acids on the skin.
Q: What happens during the treatment?
A: The skin will be cleansed twice with a prep application. The practitioner will then brush the GL peel solution onto the skin and wait a few minutes for the mild acids to penetrate the skin. Afterwards, the recommended antioxidant is applied along with a tailored face mask, depending on your concerns. Serums and SPF are applied at the end to hydrate and protect the skin

What our clients say
Being someone with a very busy work life style I didn’t want a treatment that was going to make my skin peel. After having a consultation I had been recommended the Skin Ceuticals GL peel. I cannot get enough of these treatments! I can easily pop into clinic on my lunch break and then carry on with my busy day. My skin feels and looks so much more radiant and healthier. I have also started using the Skin Ceuticals range at home which I absolutely love.
