Glycolic information: Glycolic acid is one of a group of acids known as Alpha-hydroxy Acids or AHAs. AHAs are found in natural products such as milk, sugar cane and fruit. Glycolic peels give fantastic results, freshening the skin by 'ungluing' the old dead top layers to reveal the fresh new skin underneath. It is also a hydrophilic ,meaning it attracts water, and therefore 'plumps' out the new skin and keeps it hydrated. In the deeper layers of the skin, it encourages an increase in the deposition of collagen and other proteins which leads to better support and healthier skin has been shown.

Deep Action Ultrasonic Massager - $10
For an extra 5 mins in time and $10 added to your treatment you can have the benefits of the actives in your treatment being penetrated 2000 times deeper with the the Deep Action Ultrasonic Massager. Ultrasound waves of tremendous speeds break up the actives into tinier and tinier droplets enabling them to penetrate the skin much, much more. The ultrasound waves also have an effect on the tissue warming the water molecules in the cells promoting skin metabolism, blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. The massaging effect helps to tighten, tone and lift the facial skin.
Dermal Roller - The use of a Dermal Roller (or needling) will also help the actives in the products to penetrate into the skin and be more effective. It does this simply by creating conduits (holes) through spaces between cells so more actives can penetrate. The wound response from mild needling induces new collagen and elastin in the lower layer of the skin and makes great use of the applied actives. Using a Dermal Roller then a Deep Action Ultrasonic Massager will greatly enhance the quantity of and speed to which the actives will work. Both can be ordered at the time of your treatment.
