Dr Maysons Glycolic Acid Skin Rejuvenation

Dr Mayson’s Unique Glycolic Acid Skin Rejuvenation Formula

Rejuvenate Your Skin at Home with Dr Mayson’s Once-A-Day Program!

This is a very simple-to-use, inexpensive ‘home program’ that will visibly start to rejuvenate your skin within 6 weeks of commencing it.  Dr Mayson personally developed the formula many years ago and because it is so effective, complication-free and inexpensive it has proven extremely popular.  Moreover, everyone can benefit from it and every type of skin can use it. Within 6 weeks of commencing the program your skin will start to:

  • look fresher;
  • look more radiant; and
  • feel smoother

without any redness or visible peeling.  As the peeling it causes is microscopic, it’s not apparent and so there is no need to take time off work or miss out on social events while using it.

Glycolic Acid is a naturally occurring ‘Fruit Acid’ found in sugar cane and it is one of the few substances that have been scientifically proven to have a beneficial effect on the skin.  Currently, there are many commercially-available Glycolic Acid products on the market but most are only weakly effective and moreover, have not been customised to YOUR skin.

In contrast, Dr Mayson’s Glycolic Acid Program is a prescription-based program that will be specifically customised to your skin’s requirements. In this way, you can confidently expect the best possible results for your skin. 

 How does it work?

Glycolic Acid basically works in three principal ways:

  • It thins and smooths the ‘dead cell layer’ at the epidermal skin surface while at the same time thickening the ‘live cell layer’ in its deeper layers. As the thickening of the ‘live cell layer’ is greater than the thinning of the ‘dead cell layer’, the net result is overall a thicker epidermis.  In other words, your skin does NOT end up “thinner” or more sensitive to the sun.
  • It unclogs blocked pores.  In this way it is very useful for those with a tendency to whiteheads, blackheads and acne.
  • Long-term use of Glycolic Acid has proven on biopsy studies to stimulate the production of collagen in the deeper skin layers.  Although its effect on existing fine lines may not be dramatic, more collagen means more support for your skin and therefore an increased resistance to future wrinkling.

What changes should you expect?

  • Fresher-looking skin
  • Smoother skin to the touch
  • More radiant-looking skin
  • Reduced open pores
  • Improvement of fine lines
  • Fewer blocked pores, whiteheads and blackheads 
  • Improvement of any acne

These changes are usually noticeable within the first 6 weeks even though you would still only be on the first, introductory strength of lotion. However, when you progress on to the higher lotion strengths, you will notice even more improvement.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Glycolic Acid?

Glycolic Acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) found naturally in sugar cane. It is often referred to as the Holy Grail for micro-exfoliation!

What are the main uses of Glycolic Acid?

Glycolic Acid’s main uses are in skin rejuvenation and the treatment of acne.

How does Glycolic Acid rejuvenate the skin?

By very effectively and invisibly removing the skin’s uppermost layer of dead cells, the skin looks brighter, fresher and more radiant.

How does Glycolic Acid help to control acne?

Blockage of the oil-producing glands in the skin is the basic underlying cause of acne. By unblocking these oil-glands, Glycolic Acid prevents the first stage of acne development.

Is it safe?

Yes.  You can continue to use Glycolic Acid indefinitely without any harmful effect on your skin.

How do I commence the program?

We do not sell pre-prepared formulations of Glycolic Acid. Instead, Dr Mayson prefers to customise the formula of the Glycolic Acid to the individual needs of each patient.

What does the program entail?

After a careful assessment of your skin and all your current skin care products, Dr Mayson will prescribe the first of the three formula strengths which you then have made up at the pharmacy.  The three steps of increasing solution strengths are essential as your skin needs to acclimatise to each strength of solution before you move on to the next strength.

Each strength of solution is used for 10-12 weeks. Once you reach full strength, Dr Mayson will issue you with prescription repeats and you then only need to see him once every 12 months to have your prescription renewed.

What would happen if I went straight to full-strength Glycolic Acid?

Going straight to full-strength without allowing your skin to slowly acclimatise will produce redness, irritation and visible flaking of skin which will force you to stop the program. Use the program only in the manner prescribed.

What happens if I stop my Glycolic Acid Program?

If you stop the program, your skin will simply lose its former “glow” and “declimatise”. However, if you then wish to resume the program, you have to start at the very beginning as your skin needs to once again acclimatise.
