Micro Peel

What is a micro peel and why is it done?

A micro skin peel, is a cosmetic non-surgical procedure to treat

  • Acne prone skin
  • Pigmentation
  • Environmentally damaged skin
  • Fine lines/wrinkles
  • Areas of dryness

by peeling away the skin’s top layers, using AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) such as glycolic, lactic or fruit acid.

How is a micro peel done?

  • The AHA solution is applied to the area to be treated (avoiding the eyes, brows and lips) using sponge, cotton pad, swab or brush.
  • The chemical is left on the skin for 2 to 7 minutes
  • Water is used to neutralize the acid and end the chemical reaction and wiped off.
  • A slight burning sensation is felt while the chemical is on the skin. A handheld fan can help cool the skin and relieve any discomfort.
