Mandelic Acid for Clearing Acne and it’s marks
A revolutionary new treatment from Melanopeel offers hope to sufferers of chronic acne. Mandelic acid is not a miracle cream or a gimmick, it is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid that has been used as a post surgery treatment for years due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-biotic properties. But it is these properties that make it so effective to treat acne.
Mandelic acid is natural, extracted from bitter almonds, and is commonly used as a chemical skin peel. Although the action on the skin appears mild, as when used correctly it does not burn or blister the skin, the effects can be even more powerful than traditional glycolic acid peels. As well as its anti-biotic and ant-inflammatory properties that soothe skin and kill bacteria, Mandelic acid skin peels have a natural healing effect, restoring damaged skin cells and encouraging the growth of healthy new cells while the old ones are being shed.
