Peel program

The Jan Marini peel is a glycolic acid peel system that can only be performed as an in-office procedure by a trained professional. It provides controlled and predictable removal of surface skin cells, stimulating skin renewal to improve the appearance of the skin.

You will notice a difference in your skin texture immediately. The procedure is fast and convenient, taking only about fifteen minutes to half an hour. And with virtually no recovery time, you can be back to your normal routine the same day. There is no significant pain or discomfort or need for anaesthesia.

It takes usually 4-6 treatments at three to four week intervals to achieve the desired effect

All body areas appear to respond well to treatment with glycolic acid; however, the arms, hands, neck and chest all improve at a slower rate than the face.

Reported side effects

Most patients can undergo glycolic peeling without any side effects. The treated skin is virtually normal in appearance. The fact that the patient underwent a peel in usually undetectable to others.

Although rare, a patient may experience mild sloughing, producing some weeping or scabbing.

Some redness is temporary and normal. Any of these side effects may be covered with make up.

Rarely, if scabs are picked, scarring may occur or areas of hypopigmentation (lighter coloured skin) or hyperpigmentation (darker coloured skin) may result from a peel.

Your practitioner will discuss these potential side effects in a consultation.


Again, this depends on area treated and how much is required, and the practitioner doing the treatment, but ranges are in the region of: £60 to £100 per treatment session.
