This is a superficial strength peel, it only takes the surface layer of skin away, promoting a slow release of the medication for continuous penetration of the skin. It is particularly good as a one off peel to rejuvenate and refresh skin or combat acne, or as a course of six to maintain optimal results.

Suitable for all skin types and ages, and ideal for people who do not want to peel. The peel works as an exfoliation technique, promoting stimulation of healthy skin without the obvious signs of exfoliation.
The peel acts as a deep exfoliate eliminating the surface layer of skin that has been damaged by many different factors such as sun exposure, wind, pollution, smoking or aging, hyperpigmentation, acne, stretch marks, scars, dehydration and loss of skin elasticity.
Phytic peel is ideal for tackling the problem of acne that normal face washes and cleansing regimes cannot deal with. The peel is especially popular for teenage acne. As the peel only takes the top layer of skin away thus unblocking the skin that is affected by acne and effectively helps the acne to improve.
To achieve long-lasting results it is recommended to perform treatments every 1-2 weeks dependent on your dermatological skin assessment.
What is the treatment procedure?
The dermatologist will inform the patient at their consultation of a specific skincare regime needed before the treatment to ensure skin is in optimal condition in order to maximise the effects. The procedure itself will take around 30 minutes. The skin is cleansed before the solution is applied to the affected areas. The solution is applied in layers; once the first layer is dried a second layer will be applied. Then when this is completed a post-peel mask will be applied and massaged into the skin.
What are the benefits of this treatment?
This procedure aims to leave the skin looking and feeling more youthful and fresher than it was prior to the procedure. Some of the effects that are experienced are
Smoother surface around the treated areas
Feels smoother and softer
Healthier color in the skin
Reduction of surface lines and wrinkles
The skin looks and feels rejuvenated.
Will the procedure hurt?
During the procedure, the patient may experience a slight burning sensation but this is very minimal. Following the procedure, there will be a slight redness that will subside after around 12 hours. The day after the procedure the skin will start to feel smooth, tight and fresh.
It is important to follow post-treatment instructions from the dermatologist, particularly in the daily application of 50SPF. This peel is an excellent maintenance therapy for people who wish to keep their smoother youthful skin. Alternatively, the peel can be used before a special occasion as a one-off treatment to rejuvenate the skin.
