Since the days of ancient Egypt, people have been using chemoexfoliation methods, also known as chemical peeling, to rejuvenate skin.
The original chemo-exfoliant was lactic acid, an active ingredient of sour milk that was used topically by the nobles as part of an ancient skin rejuvenation regimen.
In the Middle ages, old wine with tartaric acid was used for the same purpose.
Today, these historical chemoexfoliants, known as alpha-hydroxy acids (AHas), are commonly used as active ingredients in chemical peeling. Salicylic acid, a beta-hydroxy acid (BHa), also belongs to the group of hydroxy acids.
Chemical peeling is an accelerated form of exfoliation created by acids that produces a controlled injury to the skin.
Superficial chemical peels induce a faster sloughing of the cells in the epidermis, whereas deeper chemical peels create inflammation in the dermis.
Following a peel, the body responds to the “wound” by initiating the wound healing process to re-orient the connective tissue of the new skin.
I offer a wide range of peels dependant upon consultation and bespoke requirement, peels include:
glycolic acid, salicylic acid, mandelic acid, alpha hydroxyl acid, anti-oxidant rich resorcinol, phytic acid, panthenol, malic acid and soap bark extract.
