A Chemical Peel is the use of acidic substances to carefully remove the outermost layer of skin to achieve an improvement in skin texture and/or pigmentation. The peel chemically loosens the dead and damaged cells causing exfoliation and serving to promote new cell growth.
Cliniccare® superficial chemical peels contain a mixture of Glycolic, Lactic and Salicylic Acids to remove the upper layer of the epidermis encouraging regeneration of new skin cells. Chemical peels are also used to treat fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth, wrinkles caused by sun damage and certain types of acne.
Treatment intervals for peels start 2- 3 weeks apart for 3 treatments. Then reassess. The interval is determined by the treatment intensity and sensitivity of the patient’s skin. Very superficial peels are commonly performed at the beginning of a series as the skin recovers rapidly from these treatments.

Low molecular hyaluronic acid is one of the basic components of CLINICCARE skincare. Hyaluronic acid plays a vital role in metabolic processes such as cell interaction and synthesis. One of its most important properties is its ability to retain moisture – up to 1000 times the weight of the acid itself. Natural repair of skin cells is directly dependent on levels of hyaluronic acid, which, unfortunately, decline as you age. Cliniccare scientists have developed low molecular hyaluronic acid with molecules only 5 nanometers wide with high ionization levels as well, which means it can reach deep into the skin without the need for injection.
