AHA Alpha hydroxy acid peelings

Chemical peel: Rejuvenation, wrinkles and fine lines


Alpha Hydroxy Acids  are a class of chemical compounds that occur naturally in fruits, milk, and sugar cane. Although  they are called acids they are not to be confused with strong industrial acids.

Chemical peel can help to the skin rejuvenation and to minimize wrinkles and fine  lines. They involve applying a chemical solution to the skin to remove its outer layers. 

This kind of acids are a group of natural acids found in foods: include citric acid (found in citrus fruits), glycolic acid (found in sugar cane), lactic acid (found in sour milk), malic acid (found in apples), tartaric acid (found in grapes), and others. They may be obtained from their natural sources or may be made synthetically. AHA-containing products cause exfoliation, or shedding of the surface skin.

The extent of exfoliation depends on the type and concentration of the AHA, its pH, and other ingredients in the product.  

Various Alpha Hydroxy Acids 

are applied to the skin for moisturizing and removing dead skin cells, for treating acne and improving the appearance of acne scars, for improving the appearance of photo-aged skin, and firming and smoothing skin.

The percentage of a peel just indicates how much of the peeling agent is contained in the peel. So a 15% glycolic acid peel has less glycolic acid than a 50% glycolic acid peel.

What really matters when it comes to peel is their pH level. This indicates how deep the peel will penetrate into the skin and how much irritation it will get. 

The lower the pH, the deeper the peel (except in the enzymatic peeling)


AHA peelings. Chemical peel: Rejuvenation, wrinkles and lines

Glycolic acid (GA) obtained from sugar cane is used in the most common alpha-hydroxy acid peel. It has the smallest molecular weight amongst all the alpha-hydroxy acids. It penetrates skin easily, making it a popular peel agent. GA peels have anti-inflammatory, keratolytic, and antioxidant effects. This acid targets the corneosoma by enhancing breakdown and decreasing cohesiveness, causing desquamation.

The intensity of peel is determined by the concentration of the acid, the vehicle used to carry it, the amount of acid applied, and the technique used.

Glycolic acid peels need to be properly neutralized to stop acidification of the skin. Applying acid to the skin saturates the ability of cells to resist acidification; excess acid must be neutralized to avoid burning.  No gender skin care.

AHA peelings. Chemical peel: Rejuvenation, wrinkles and lines

Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid obtained from fermented milk, that diminishes the cohesion of the surface skin cells and subsequently prevents the thickening of the stratum corneum. It is absorbed across the stratum corneum and assists in cell detachment from that level removing aging cells, debris and pollutants attached to the skin surface. They exfoliate the surface of the skin, while deep cleaning the pores and stimulate natural collagen production, even out the skin tone and improve hyper pigmentation of the skin, and will fade dark spots.

Stimulates new healthy skin cells production and increases collagen formation. Increase hydration. Cleans clogged pores. The resulting smoothness and flexibility of the skin’s surface is evident soon after application. The skin may be a bit pink, thigh and dry following the peel.

Lactic acid is specifically used to treat hyperpigmentation, age spots, and other factors that contribute to a dull and uneven complexion, promoting tyrosinase inhibition. It has also antioxidant effect, reducing free radicals production. No gender skin care.

  • Minimize the appearance of fine lines.
  • Reduces redness.
  • Improve acne and dry up oily skin.


Dead skin cells are removed gently, causing no skin irritation. It is the most gentle peel available causing less discomfort.

It doesn’t cause skin dehydration providing ultra-deep moisture and restoring skin’s protective barrier. Skin is refreshed without irritation and scratching.

AHA peelings. Chemical peel: Rejuvenation, wrinkles and lines

Mandelic acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) obtained from almonds. It has the higher molecular weight than any other AHA, and as a result its action is slower than the others avoiding skin burning.

It breaks the union between corneal cells removing aging cells, debris and pollutants attached to the skin surface. It minimizes the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen and elastin contents in the dermis. Skin may be a bit pink, thigh and dry following the peel. No gender skin care.


  • Brighten irregular pigmentation.
  • Minimize the appearance of fine lines.
  • Reduces redness.
  • Revitalizes dull, sun damaged and tired skin.
  • Firm tones and restores youthful glow.
  • Removes dead skin cells and prone clogging debris to unclog pores 
  • Treat hormonal breakouts.


 Mandelic acid does not penetrate the skin aggressively.

When acids are applied to the skin, it is an exfoliation treatment, which means the dead skin cells are being lifted so newer, healthier cells can shine.

It works to accelerate cell turnover by dissolving the tiny bonds that hold skin cells together, helping to remove dead skin on the surface of the skin that can lead to dull complexions as well as fine lines. Skin is refreshed without irritation and scratching. It has no photosensitizing effect and actively inhibits melanogenesis. Can be applied in hands and décolleté.

MALIC PEEL/47 (Apple peel)

aha malic acid peel collagen production restores skin vitality mesoinstitute wrinkles mature skin elastin apple peel

Malic acid is a substance found naturally in apples and pears. This peel is the same type of mildly invasive peel derived from the extracts of apples. It can open up the pores, allow the pores to expel their sebum and reduce acne.

Malic Acid has a positive balance of humectant and skin penetration properties, compared to other fruit acids. It refines balances and regenerates the skin while minimizing lines and minor irregularities for a fresher and younger-looking complexion. It moisturizes the stratum corneum by humectant action and promotes exfoliation of the stratum corneum, which results in a thinner, more flexible stratum corneum and improved skin smoothness.

Also increases epidermal and dermal firmness and thickness when used at high levels, this improves skin smoothness and reduces wrinkles. Malic acid could reverse the signs of aging and also help in increasing the production of collagen. In one study on malic acid was published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology in 2013, shows that it is very effective in treating short-term melasma.

Malic acid exfoliates the skin so it becomes soft and supple. It also decreases the signs of aging by softening wrinkles.Malic acid is a weaker than glycolic acid. It can be used to treat acne, photo damage, rosaceous, superficial pigmentation and eczema. No gender skin care.  


  • Improving skin texture
  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Improves hyper-pigmentation by decreasing the production of melanin.


 What makes malic acid so special is that it has similar properties when compared to glycolic acid, but is less irritating to the skin.

It has a thinning effect on the outermost layer of your skin. This means that malic acid can burn away the dead skin cells from the outermost layer of the skin, thereby allowing the younger and newer skin cells to shine through.

Malic Acid is credited with boosting the immune system and balancing internal pH levels.
