Chemical Peels (40% Glycolic)
A refreshing anti-ageing treatment with minimal downtime, this peel penetrates the top layers of your skin and encourages the natural exfoliation process; leaving you with fresher, brighter and younger looking skin.
What are Glycolic Peels?
A superficial glycolic skin peel is a non invasive, quick and painless procedure. It can help fine lines, uneven skintone, texture, pigmentation and damaged skin. It is also has powerful antibacterial properties. It allows new skin to regenerate.
The skin peel is a type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid derived from sugar cane. It primarily works through it’s exfoliation properties. It penetrates the upper layer of the epidermis, weakening properties of the lipids that hold dead skin cells together. This action allows the layer of dead skin cells to dissolve revealing the underlying skin.

First off the skin is cleaned and prepped thoroughly with Pure Cleanse
The peel is applied over the entire face with a brush
The peel is neutralised and removed after 1-2 minutes
