Glycolic Skin Peel

If you want a treatment to make your skin feel brighter, fresher and younger looking, then Glycolic Peels are for you.

They can soften fine lines, help with spot outbreaks and reduce black/whiteheads. They also enhance the effects of Botox and Dermal Fillers by stimulating collagen in the dermis of the skin.

Glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane and comes in a range of strengths. At New You Medispa we use prescription strength, clinic only peels, to safely but effectively exfoliate your skin. We only use world renowned NeoStrata® Glycolic Peels to achieve the best results.

To achieve the best results in the quickest time, it is recommended to use a mild Glycolic moisturiser in the morning and a Retin A at night for 2 weeks prior to treatment to prepare the skin. Both of these products are available to buy in store. A course of 6 peels is recommended, 2 peels at 35%, 50% and 70% strength.


  • The skin is cleansed and the Glycolic acid applied, there will be a mild prickling sensation.

  • After 3 minutes it is neutralised and a SkinCeuticals Tinted Moisturiser with SPF 50 is applied.

  • After treatment the skin looks immediately brighter, occasionally it can be slightly red and slight flaking may occur after 3 days.
