Gly­colic acid stim­u­lates col­la­gen pro­duc­tion, in­creases hy­dra­tion, im­proves tex­ture, re­duces pore size and helps to lighten pig­men­ta­tion. It works by re­mov­ing the dead outer layer by dis­solv­ing the bonds of thick­ened dead skin. It stim­u­lates pro­teins in the skin that are di­rectly linked to hy­dra­tion and it also stim­u­lates the pro­duc­tion of fi­brob­lasts, which are pre­cur­sor cells for col­la­gen and elastin pro­duc­tion. Treat­ment: A neos­trata Peel – a su­per­fi­cial to medium-depth peel that can only be done by a med­i­cal pro­fes­sional. The rec­om­mended treat­ment in­cludes six ses­sions over six months. Price: R500 for a 45-minute ses­sion. Con­tact: Aes­thetic Fa­cial En­hance­ment, Cape Town Aes­thetic fa­cial en­hance­ment.; 021 797 0960
