AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids)

Using the transformative benefits of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) peels, formulated to  our hydrating to the skin. AHAs, including glycolic acid from sugar cane, lactic acid from milk, and citric acid from citrus fruits, work wonders for skin rejuvenation, while hydrating the skin as it exfoliated. 

Hydrating AHA’s: Lactic and Mandelic

Lactic Acid

Lactic acid, a star ingredient in our hydrating peels, is celebrated for its exceptional moisturizing properties. This AHA gently exfoliates while infusing essential hydration, leaving your skin supple and revitalized.

Mandelic Acid

Mandelic acid, another key component in our hydrating peels, is renowned for its ability to moisturize and nourish the skin. This AHA is particularly suitable for those seeking hydration alongside effective exfoliation. 


Chemical peels represent a sophisticated approach to skin rejuvenation. These treatments leverage specially crafted solutions to exfoliate the skin systematically, targeting distinct layers based on the desired depth of the peel—ranging from superficial, addressing minor imperfections, to medium or deep, addressing more profound skin concerns. The active ingredients in these solutions, such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), work by removing dead skin cells, promoting cellular turnover, and stimulating collagen production. This process contributes to a smoother, more vibrant complexion and can address various skin issues, including fine lines, uneven tone, and sun damage.



Commencing with gentler AHAs like lactic and mandelic acids, our peels offer a gradual exfoliation experience. This allows individuals to build tolerance before progressing to stronger AHAs like glycolic acid. The key lies in understanding the differences, ensuring a tailored approach to skincare.



During a chemical peel, individuals may encounter mild sensations that are indicative of the treatments efficacy. Sensations can include tingling, itchy or a temporary stinging feeling, which typically subsides swiftly. With higher strengths a wave of heat, similar to opening an oven door on high heat, very very warm all at once. It’s crucial to manage expectations; while discomfort is minimal, understanding these sensations as a normal part of the process. However, communication is imperative for synergy between the treatment provider and the client. Never grin and bear it! The practitioner must be in control in order to be able to readily calm the skin when needed. The duration of these sensations is short-lived, and managed for both safety and efficacy to ensure a tolerable and results driven treatment session.

Not suitable for very dry or sensitive skin types! Combination and normal skin types are best suited. 


Lactic and mandelic acids are considered safe for pregnant women due to their milder nature and specific properties that make them suitable alternatives during pregnancy.

Lactic Acid

  • Mild Exfoliation: Lactic acid provides gentle exfoliation without penetrating too deeply into the skin, making it safer for use during pregnancy.
  • Moisturizing Properties: Known for its moisturizing benefits, lactic acid helps maintain skin hydration, addressing common skin concerns during pregnancy, such as dryness.

Mandelic Acid

  • Gentle Exfoliation: Mandelic acid is recognized for its gentle exfoliating effects, making it a safer option for pregnant women seeking to address skin concerns without using harsher acids.
  • Lower Absorption: Mandelic acid has larger molecular structures, resulting in lower absorption rates through the skin, reducing potential risks during pregnancy.

Both lactic and mandelic acids offer effective skincare benefits while minimizing potential risks for pregnant women. It’s advisable to consult with a healthcare professional or dermatologist for personalized advice based on individual health conditions.

What about Azelaic Acid? 

Science says Mandelic has the largest molecule followed by Lactic with Azelaic being the third largest of the them. Azelaic acid is generally considered safe for pregnant women topically. However, there is limited evidence on the safety of Azelaic acid during pregnancy. Available data suggests that the small amount absorbed through the skin is unlikely to pose significant risks to the fetus. Dermatologists often recommend Azelaic acid as a safe alternative for treating skin concerns during pregnancy, such as acne and Melasma.

Determining the frequency of chemical peel treatments involves a personalized approach. Factors such as the type of peel, individual skin characteristics, and the specific concerns being addressed influence the treatment plan. In consultations, skincare professionals tailor plans to meet individual needs. Generally, treatments are scheduled every month while avoiding strong sun and vacations with strong UV. Spring, fall and winter at the preferred months which facilitate the sun’s ability to heal without the bombardment of environmental factors. Striking this balance between achieving optimal results and allowing the skin sufficient time to recover is beneficial for long-term consistent results.


Not only is post care important, but so is preparation prior to your appointment. At home skincare with active cellular rejuvenating properties like Retina A and medical grade skincare, needs to cease one week prior to your appointment with no recent tans and sunscreen adhered to in stronger UV rays. It is important to know what you are applying to your skin and to avoid physical exfoliants. 

Proper post-treatment care is integral to maximizing the benefits of a chemical peel. It involves maintaining optimal skin hydration through the use of moisturizers and avoiding excessive sun exposure, particularly during the initial healing phase. Sun protection is paramount to prevent hyperpigmentation and protect the renewed skin surface. The use of gentle skincare products, free from harsh chemicals, promotes a soothing and effective recovery.
