Mandelic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid and is derived from bitter almonds, it has several benefits for the skin. Mandelic acid acts as a powerful — yet gentle — exfoliator that breaks up the tiny bonds between dead cells at the skin’s surface, making it an effective component in chemical peels. This treatment compared to chemical peels containing salicylic, glycolic or lactic acids, is lower in strength but produces longer-lasting effects.
This treatment is a great choice for a first-time chemical peel. It unifies pores, reduces oil production and improves the overall texture of the skin.
