Why do I need a Fruit Acid Peel?
Skin that is exposed to the sun or has suffered over-exposure to the sun is damaged and ages faster. A Fruit Acid Peel helps you regain a noticeably softer, smoother and healthier skin. Unsightly acne scars, pigmentation and age spots can also be effectively treated with the Peel.
Where can this treatment be applied?
Commonly exposed areas to the sun are the face, chest and decollage (v-area below neck). The hands and arms can also be treated.
What can I expect after my Fruit Acid Peel?
Find yourself transformed with radiant and healthier-looking skin. Skin tone is also more even, softer and smoother. Peel away the years and feel the difference in firmness, suppleness and elasticity. You will notice the reduction in the number and severity of lines, wrinkles and pigmentation spots. Skin can also be effectively lightened.
How does the Fruit Acid Peel work?
Fruit Acid Peels treat the entire face, removing the outer layer of damaged skin cells to reveal new, rejuvenated skin. With deeper peels, new, rejuvenated skin is formed. The fruit acids stimulate the skin to produce additional natural collagen which assists to fill in fine lines, acne scars and wrinkles for a more uniform, softer, smoother skin.
What is the treatment like?
A series of peels is performed using a glycolic acid product applied to skin. Peels can vary from mild to deep peels, varying in strength from 20-70 %, depending on the existing condition of the skin and the desired individual results. Generally, six peels are performed over three months with another peel every four to six months after, as clinically indicated. A take-home product is used in conjunction with the peel for achieving even skin tone or an AHA pigmentation cream may be advised.
What will my face look like after a Fruit Acid Peel?
Depending on the depth and strength of the peel, your face may show some degree of redness for up to four days following your treatment. You may prefer to stay indoors and avoid the sun. Your ARC doctor will advise you on exactly what to expect and do after your treatment.
