Professional training course in Chemical Skin Peeling.

A cosmetic chemical skin peel treatment acts as a chemical exfoliant, removing the upper layers of skin and dead skin cells to reveal the fresh, new skin underneath. It is one of the most popular non-invasive skin treatments available. It is suitable for all skin types but is particularly suitable for acne, pigmentation, photodamage, uneven skin tone and texture and anti-ageing and when used correctly can improve the look and feel of the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.

Glycolic acid works in a number of ways, primarily through its exfoliation properties. On application the glycolic acid penetrates the upper layer of the epidermis, weakening the binding properties of the lipids that hold dead skin cells together. This action allows the layer of dead skin cells to dissolve revealing the underlying skin.
