What is SPA Peel | Glycolic Acid 30% + Citric Acid 10% + TCA 10%
Glycolic Acid has long been a first-line product of the finest spas and dermatology offices for improving the skin. For those of you who have heard the term “Lunch Time Peel”, this is the chemical used for it. Now you can do these peels at home safely and with fantastic results. After peeling your skin will feel softer, look smoother, with improved texture and tone and reduced hyperpigmentation (sun damage). Under the skin, collagen is forming to plump up fine lines and smooth scars. With a peel of this strength, a full course of peels (8-10 peels) is needed to see optimal results.
Glycolic Acid is a naturally occurring chemical belonging to the Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) family. This important AHA is the smallest of the fruit acids and is able to penetrate the skin, allowing it to effectively dissolve the “glue” that holds dead cells on the surface of the skin. The dead skin cells are what cause a dull, uneven skin tone and the blocking of pores leading to blackheads and acne. This dissolving action of the Glycolic Acid allows the dead cells to slough off. Our 30% Glycolic Acid Peel is a mild glycolic acid peel and is suitable for all skin types and both beginning and experienced peelers.
There may be some redness right after the peel, but generally, there is not much if any actual peeling (hence the name Lunch Time Peel, you can go right back to work after you have it done). The 30% is very safe when used as directed, but is a strong, professional strength peel (pH 2) and should be used only as directed. As with all products, a patch test is recommended to see how your skin reacts to the peel. By purchasing this product, you assume all risks associated with its use and are responsible for all results either intended or unintended from using this product.

Chemical peel products are a more aggressive form of over the counter products. Salicylic acid peels, glycolic, lactic acid peels, citric, and TCA peels are all chemical peel products that have proven more effective in counteracting the effects of aging and lack of skincare. The active ingredients in these products have proven to be more proactive in treating skin conditions by boosting natural levels of proteins and enhancing skin radiance.
