Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy 50ml

Skin Resurfacing Cream

Discover the amazing benefits of skin resurfacing without lasers or peels with this ultimate anti-ageing skin resurfacing cream! Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy is a powerful yet gentle daily-use cream that offers the latest in skin resurfacing technology.

Powerful skin resurfacing and skin renewal can help with the appearance of -

  • Wrinkles
  • Skin pigmentation
  • Acne, blackheads, and whiteheads
  • Dull weathered skin
  • Dry or oily skin
  • Ingrown hairs
  • Enlarged, open pores

Peel to reveal a fresh complexion

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 enriched with fruit acids to regenerate skin renewal, refine the skin’s texture and give the skin a new found radiance.

Gamma Hydroxy from Skin Doctors features a synergy of glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acids for the ultimate in skin renewal resurfacing. It combines the exfoliating actions of AHA’s and BHA’s to loosen the ‘cement’ that binds the dead skin in the stratum corneum to accelerate faster shedding of this layer.

Suitable for all skin types, Gamma Hydroxy will particularly benefit ageing, dry and oily skin types. For oily skin, the inclusion of salicylic acid can improve blemishes by reducing the appearance of blackheads and white heads, whilst decongesting clogged pores penetrate the surface of the skin to deliver fantastic resurfacing benefits; reducing pore size and improving skin texture and colour, to reveal the younger, healthier skin below.

You will begin to benefit from a more youthful glowing, dewy looking complexion within days of using Gamma Hydroxy

Active Ingredients

Glycolic acid

Belongs to the class Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), commonly known as ‘fruit acids’ and occurs naturally in sugar cane juice. It is considered to be the most effective AHA because it has a small molecular structure allowing it to penetrate the surface of the skin more readily.

Lactic Acid

Also a type of AHA and is derived from sour milk and grain. Its benefits to the skin have been well documented for centuries – even Cleopatra's beautiful skin is attributed to her bathing in milk.

Both Glycolic and Lactic Acids work by loosening or breaking up the thick outer layer of skin. Through this microscopic exfoliation activity, these AHAs smooth the skin’s texture problems including acne, fine wrinkles, pigmentation, and skin expressions. They also have the fantastic benefit of kick-starting your skin into its natural regeneration, stimulating collagen and skin growth cycle.

Salicylic Acid

Classed as Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs), this type of acids can be a little milder than AHAs, 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 clearing clogged pores.

Directions

Patch test a small amount of Gamma Hydroxy on the area to be treated and wait 24 hours. If no irritation occurs continue with full treatment.

Thoroughly clean your face and pat dry. Smooth a thin, even layer of Gamma Hydroxy cream over your face, neck, hands or anywhere you wish to improve the appearance of your skin.

You may feel a slight tingling. Follow with daily or nightly moisturiser

This product showed visible results immediately, hugely reduced pores on the first use and from then on clearer, brighter skin. I barely need any foundation now! Love this cream and will certainly buy it again. 10/10
(i have tried so many products in the past, only this works)

Bought this in July 2014. still have less than half a jar. I use it only when my skin needs it. At first I was using it every day twice a day as it says. Within 4 5 days my skin was a mess. Went dry burnt and wrinkly where ever I had applied the cream on my face . I had to stop using the product completely till my skin recovered. I tried it again after a while and applying after every other day decent amount once a day and I have to say I love it now . It's a good skin rescuer when used less and not everyday. My skin looks fab an new .good skin resurfacer and does what it says .just 1 point I have to make, i have sensitive skin and suffer with acne . That's why it was more harsh on my skin and came back from a hot holiday of 5 wks . Just for your information .

I used to be a skin aesthetics specialist for many years so I am no stranger to a cosmeceutical cream and its benefits. However, using this cream is the biggest mistake I have made with my skincare regime. I do not have sensitive skin, yet after a couple of uses this is the mess it left my face in. Raised itchy bright red blotchy rash, that took 7 days to clear and left a dry and crepe paper looking effect on my skin. i wouldn't even put this cream on my feet.

I dont usually write reviews, but i didnt want to turn this one down because this is a product people have to be a little sensible with. First of all i have to say this product does what it says, but alot of people are not really familiar with skin resurfacing. i used this product on my face during a time when i had a lot of facial hair, after getting a haircut i saw the difference it had made to my face and i was frightened. this stuff is reallly strong and the results show in only a matter of time, i want to warn any new buyers to apply it evenly and check the area very closely to see the progress so you can control the opperation. This product is fantastic tho, if you realise it has been spreaded unevenly and some areas look more refined than others its not too serious because your skin cells grow all the time and in a matter of days the area will look leveled again but this time much more healthier. Thats one of my favorite features because it removes dead skin cells and the new ones are always on their way.

This product is fantastic, of course we could all say that but i think it really depends on your skin type and the condition you want to care for, for those who have unevenly pigmented skin of a black negrero shade, like myself you will benift greately. sensitivity doesnt really matter as long as you allow your skin to become use to the cream. what you wanna do is familiarise yourself with it, see and feel how it works on you body then make up your own routeen. This stuff is fantastic i could write more but it would be a long read, just keep an eye on what it is doing and work with it however you have to. Remember this removes dead cells and impurities from your skin so its not a bad idea to invest in a lotion that restores and nurtures skin health. Good luck, be carefull, check and experiment you will enjoy it.

I have been using this for the last 4 months and it really does work. If used twice daily the improvement is noticeable in about 2 month's time. It's a great alternative to chemical peel but because it contains acid you should probably get a trial size pot first (available from ebay) just to make sure you do not have an allergic reaction to it.

After reading the rave reviews about this amazing cream i plucked up the courage to go ahead and buy it after failing to find a skin care regime that would help my problem skin! i've always had an oily t zone/breakouts/blackheads no matter how hard i tried to get rid of them. i have spent alot of time researching the best options for this type of skin and thought i would try the Glycolic Acid products. i was also aware of skin damage to my face and fine lines were appearing. my confidence has been low as a result of this. however this cream made my skin worse and come out in sore excema patches on my face, the only part which peeled was my neck. the tingling sensation was fine as i knew this would happen. I actually thought this was good as it must be working. My skin looked great once the cream was applied, glowing in fact, but that soon changed the more i used it, i noticed that my skin problems were not getting any better and tried for 3 weeks with worse results than i had before. i was really gutted and won't be buying any more products from this range as i also bought the accelerator.
since i stopped using it the sore excema patches disappeared!

I brought this product to help with a few acne scars I hace. I also suffer from hyperpigmentation which can give you skin a dull and lifeless completion.
I was excited to use this product as the review were so good and many people had had success from using it.
However for myself the results were terrible.
I did the patch test as suggested leaving it for 4hrs to see any reactions and I had no skin irritation what so ever. From this result I applied to product to my entire face using it very sparingly as recommended.

Day 1: my face was red raw and covered in tiny dots over my entire face. It was over sensitive to touch and unsightly to see.

Days 2 and 3: My face was not as red but my skin became tight and felt as if I were wearing a mask over my face as when I touched it I couldn't actually feel my face bit felt like a peel off face mask was covering my face it was in fact a thin layer of scab.

Day 4: Not matter how much cream I applied my face didn't absorb the moisture the layer of scab would not allow it to. My face began to peel everywhere. I hoped this peeling would reveal and nice new layer of skin underneath. I was sadly mistaken.

1 week later: My skin was worse than ever. It is covered in patchy scars and blemishes. If i thought my hyperpigmentation was bad before it is now much much worse.

It is safe to say Skin Doctors ruined my skin and my self confidence and I have never had to wear such makeup in my life to cover the damage of this product.

Word of warning. If your skin has a few blemishes or scars go for something other than this product.

Now I am having derma needling treatments to see if this will correct the damage done by skin doctor. Yes this may be costly but I am not putting any harsh chemicals near my face.

Natural is best.

Hope this has helped.
