The Complete Guide to Glycolic Peels

The Complete Guide to Glycolic Peels

Chemical peels are a simple and effective way to obtain brighter, clearer, smoother and more hydrated skin. If you are looking for a results driven skincare treatment, the Jan Marini 40% Glycolic Peel is perfect. Our glycolic peel treatments are our most talked about skincare treatment, so we thought we’d answer the most common questions our clients have about what’s involved in the treatment for you.

What does a 40% Glycolic Peel do?

A Glycolic resurfacing treatment, or glycolic peel, resurfaces and clarifies skin texture. It minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as helping to clear acne and scarring. A glycolic peel can also fade the appearance of discolouration to help even skin tone.

Put simply, a glycolic peel and more specifically the glycolic acid helps reduce cell “build up” at the lower levels of the skin.

What are the benefits of the Jan Marini 40% glycolic peel?

• No downtime. You won’t have any shedding or skin peeling after the treatment. This is not like traditional peels. Makeup can even be applied immediately after the treatment.
• It significantly decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stimulates collagen and elastin.
• You’ll get dramatic results and changes with no recovery period.
• It helps with sun damage, acne and scar reduction, premature ageing and hyperpigmentation.

How often should I have a glycolic peel?

For advanced results we recommend a course of 6 peels, with one peel every 7 to 10 days. Once you have completed the course we will work with you to work out a treatment plan that suits your skin and goals.

How does your skin feel after a glycolic peel?

With the Jan Marini Glycolic Peel there is no downtime and makeup can be applied immediately, should you wish to. After the peel, your skin may feel a little more sensitive than normal, but should be glowing by the following day.

Is there any aftercare involved in a glycolic peel?

Although there is no ‘downtime’ with this peel, we do recommend following a few steps after your treatment. We advise not using an products containing resurfacing ingredients, abrasives for 24 hours. Once you wish to continue use, do so slowly. It is very important to avoid sun exposure following a peel and wear SPF daily. We also recommend avoiding swimming, gym etc for 24-48 hours following your peel.
