Acne is not an unusual skin disorder as it affects most of the population at some points in their lives.
Acne is usually present on the face, but may also be seen on the neck, the chest and the back in varying degrees. This condition is most of the time caused by inflammation of the small oil glands which surround fine hairs. However, it can also be caused by hormonal changes such as pregnancy or menstrual periods.
This peel has been specifically designed for treating acne. This treatment is quick with minimal downtime and it combines a variety of active ingredients in order to achieve the best results. The way it works is by removing the dead cells of the surface of your skin and stimulating the cells found underneath, resulting in skin renewal.
You can achieve a great improvement in the appearance of acne and epidermal hyperpigmentation. At the same time, your complexion should look and feel smoother, softer and more radiant. The peel ameliorates the look of scars and enlarged pores and can also reduce acne breakouts.

Prior to the treatment Before the treatment, make sure you are well hydrated as hydration is extremely important. Your skin should be make-up free before arriving for your treatment. Since each patient?s needs are different, an introductory consultation with one of our doctors would be extremely beneficial
During the Treatment At the beginning of the procedure, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed. The acid used is diluted by your aesthetician in a special anti-bacterial liquid. Afterward the peel will be applied to your face and rubbed in with massage movements. After 6 to 7 minutes, the peel is removed using distilled cold water.
After the Treatment Your skin will look a bit pink and in some cases, it might feel itchy. After 3 days, you will experience some minor flaking but some patients comment that the flaking is barely noticeable. Regardless, this side-effect will subside after a few days.
