How skin ages

When you are young your skin is constantly being moisturised from within by hyaluronic acid which When you are young your skin is constantly being moisturised from within by hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring sugar.

Hyaluronic acid absorbs moisture and keeps the skin hydrated which produces that youthful look we all like to have.

Over the years however, our skin loses hyaluronic acid therefore, the skin becomes dryer and loses volume which is why we get wrinkles and folds starting to appear.

Obviously there are other factors that contribute to the ageing process like smoking for example, the sun, pollution and of course gravity all of which helps pull the face down resulting in folds appearing.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a great way to give your skin a spring clean lift and improve its condition without invading your day they are aptly described as the ‘lunch time peel.’

We use the Jan Mairni Skin Research Glycolic Peels, one of the best technological advances for skin care. The Glycolic acid reduces the build-up of cells at the lower levels of the skin and loosens the glue-like cellular cement that is present in skin that is ageing, causes acne, sun damage, skin discolouration or a coarse texture.

The facial procedure will resurface the skin giving dramatically softer, smoother texture, reducing the fine lines and wrinkles and reduced scarring. After just a few weeks, your skin will look brighter, clearer and for those of you who suffer with dry skin,, it will become hydrated and smooth. It’s a great treatment if you want to look your best for an event, holiday, or just feel more radiant.

The benefits of the peel is that there’s no ‘down time’ – make-up can be applied straight after and normal activities can carry on after treatment.

*Alpha Hydroxy Acid (Glycolic Peel) is derived from sugar cane and has the smallest molecular structure of the AHA family that can penetrate the skin more effectively than other Alpha Hydroxy Acids. It is not absorbed into the body and will not cause any systemic side effects like chemicals used in other peels.
