Glycolic Peels

At the Devon Laser Clinic we use Jan Marini products for our Glycolic acid peels.

Glycolic acid is shown to:

  • Remove buildup of dead skin cells and debris
  • Smooth the surface of the skin
  • Increase epidermal thickness
  • Improve the appearance of skin colour uniformity
  • Enhance your collagen
  • Bring moisture to the surface of the skin to increase hydration
  • Enhance absorption of other topical technologies

Jan Marini has created the Bioglycolic products to provide the ultimate resurfacing agents in combination with additional scientifically calculated components to deliver unparalleled skin care management.

As we age, the rate of skin growth slows. The top layer of the skin (the epidermis) thins yet the layer of dead cells on the surface (stratum corneum) becomes more adhesive slowing the natural exfoliation process and creating necrotic tissue build up.

Among other things, glycolic acid loosens the glue-like attachments, or cellular cement, that are characteristic of many skin conditions such as acne, photodamage (environmental aging), and hyperpigmentation. This non-invasive lifting of the cells in the stratum corneum enables glycolic acid to act as a phenomenal resurfacing agent that can immensely improve the appearance of the skin.
