What are Chemical Peels?

The G & T Peel does not contain Gin or Tonic! However, it does contain Glycolic Acid and Taurine. The Glycolic Acid does the work while the Taurine has a skin calming effect and allows a higher concentrarion of the Glycolic Acid to be used.

The peel removes the outer surface layers of aged and damaged skin, which can then be replaced by healthier ones. This allows the skin’s own clarity and brightness to re-surface.

How does it work?

It is recommended that a course of 6 peels is used, a week apart, starting with a 30% concentration of Glycolic Acid and ending with a 70% concentration. Each peel is applied for 3 or 5 minutes and is then neutralised and wiped off the area treated.

There are two peel options - one is for general rejuvenation and the second is specifically for pigmentation issues. Although the actual peels are identical, the home use protocols are different and these protocols must be followed for at least two weeks before the in-clinic peel can begin.

Are there any side-effects?

During the procedure you will experience a tingling sensation and your skin will be slightly pink afterwards. There is usually, but not always, a mild flaking or peeling 2 - 3 days later, which lasts for 1 or 2 days.

Is it right for me?

The G&T Peel should not be used on cut or weeping skin e.g. eczema, cold sores. You should not repeat a deep peel for 6 months although a more superficial peel can be repeated sooner.
