Why do we need skin resurfacing ?
The accumulation of excess dead cells on the surface of the skin can
give it a dull, coarse, and blotchy appearance that can make it look
older than it actually is. Gamma Hydroxy is a luxurious cream that’s
enriched with fruit acids to regenerate skin renewal, refine the skin’s
texture and give the skin a new found radiance.
The most potent synergy of hydroxy acids
Gamma Hydroxy is a synergy of glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acids for
the ultimate in skin renewal resurfacing. Gamma Hydroxy combines the
exfoliating actions of AHAs and BHAs to loosen the ‘cement’ that
binds the dead skin in the stratum corneum to accelerate faster shedding
of this layer.
belongs to a class of AHAs commonly known as ? fruit acids?. It occurs
naturally in sugar cane. It is considered to be a most effective AHA
because it has a small molecular structure and so it can penetrate the
surface of the skin more readily.
Lactic acid is naturally derived from sour milk and grain, and is
often synthetically derived by converting malic acid (from apples). Its
benefits to the skin have been well documented for centuries - even
Cleopatra?s beautiful skin is attributed to her infamous milk baths.
Both glycolic and lactic acids work by loosening or breaking up the thick
outer layer of skin. And through this microscopic exfoliation activity
they smooth the skin?s texture problems including acne, fine wrinkles,
pigmentation, and skin depressions. They also have the fantastic faculty
of kick-starting your skin into its natural regeneration, stimulating
collagen and skin growth.
Salicylic acid (BHAs) can be a little milder than AHAs because they
don?t penetrate the dermis. But this doesn?t mean they are less potent. In
fact, while BHAs essentially work the same as AHAs, they have certain
talents that AHAs don?t have. Salicylic acid encourages the sloughing of
dead skin cells as AHAs do, but it also has the ability to penetrate into
the pore, while AHAs do not.This advantage makes it very effective for
improving blemishes, by breaking down blackheads and whiteheads, and
easing clogged pores.
Gamma Hydroxy work ?
Many skin problems are associated with ?hyperkeratinisation?, or the
accumulation of excess dead cells on the surface of the skin.This can
contribute to the dull, course, rough, blotchy, and dry appearance of
Gamma Hydroxy is a proprietary blend of glycolic, lactic, and salicylic
acid that function together for the ultimate in skin renewal resurfacing.
By applying this blend to the skin the forceful actions of both AHAs and
BHAs go to work to loosen the ?cement? that binds the dead skin in stratum
corneum (a keratolytic action), allowing faster shedding of this
layer.Through doing this the Gamma Hydroxy moisturises, exfoliates, and
stimulates the skin, thereby reducing pore size (even on oily skin),
improving skin texture and colour, and revealing the younger, healthier
How long before I will experience results ?
You should start enjoying a more youthful glowing, dewy looking
complexion within just days of using Gamma Hydroxy. An improvement in the
appearance of wrinkle depth, acne-scarring and hyperpigmented areas may
take 3-6 weeks. Within 12 weeks you should have an all round effect and
enjoy skin that is visibly firmer, smoother, and healthier looking.
Will skin resurfacing with Gamma Hydroxy help with the appearance of
deeper wrinkles ?
Similar formulas to Gamma Hydroxy have been used for years by
professional dermatologists as a method of improving the appearance of
deep, pitted acne-scarring. Just imagine! If Gamma Hydroxy can help to
improve the appearance of dents caused by acne scarring wrinkles should be
Is Gamma Hydroxy safe to use daily ?
Gamma Hydroxy acid is applied to the skin as an emulsion. It is
gentle, which means that you can apply it to your face and hands as a
Initially, some people may experience slight stinging and redness after
application.This will decrease gradually over a few weeks. It is not the
case that a little is good so a lot must be better, as you can aggravate
the skin. If irritation develops, the cream should be ceased until it
clears. It can then be reintroduced more gradually. Applying a moisturiser
over Gamma Hydroxy can help. Be careful not to apply too much cream around
the corners of the eyes, and the mouth, or around the nostril area, as it
can cause a burning sensation.
Will resurfacing my skin with Gamma Hydroxy cause my
skin to flake ?
Some people with sensitive skin may experience
slight flaking or redness of the skin now and again. However this is a
positive thing as it means that the dull, dry skin is making way to reveal
your new rejuvenated skin. A moisturiser can be applied to assuage the
peeling, and if it is excessive, then applying the cream less often can
Cleanse and tone your face and pat dry. Smooth a thin, even layer of
Gamma Hydroxy cream over your face, neck, hands or any pigmented area
once a day. Gamma Hydroxy is easily absorbed by the skin, enabling you
to apply your daily make-up as usual. Alternatively Gamma Hydroxy can be
used once or twice a week as atreatment. Initially, some people may
experience slight stinging and redness after application, therefore it
is not recommended for sensitive skin types. Gamma Hydroxy is not
suitable to use around the eye area.
Patch test on a small area of the skin on face, neck or behind the ear,
and wait 24 hours before completing treatment. In the case of allergic
reaction or irritation rinse immediately with cold water and discontinue
use. Keep away from eyes, mouth, inflamed, sun burnt or broken skin.

I hadn't seen my Mum for more than a month and then on Wednesday night
i had the hugest shock of my life
well not quite, but I was still really surprised! Her skin was
She's 52, and has loved the sun all her life, as a result it was
leathery, wrinkled, had sun spots, dehydrated and dull. On Wednesday
night, I immediately noticed it was much smoother and more plump, the
bags under her eyes were hugely diminished as were all her wrinkles,
the sun spots were fading and it was generally glowing.
"WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING TO YOUR SKIN!?!?!?!" I nearly yelled at her,
I think I was in a state of shock....
She then showed me her decolletage (which has had a very uneven tone
from too many years of wearing perfume in the sun) and I nearly fell
over!!! The tone of the skin was much more even and the deep wrinkles
in her neck were no where near as deep as usual!!
As it turns out she's been using this Gamma Hydroxy skin resurfacing
cream once a day for the past 4 weeks. The results are amazing!!!
