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)

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.

Up till recently I can't really remember a time when I've not had problem skin. Now in my late 20s I stubbled upon this product by chance but swear by it. Its been amazing. Within a couple of weeks definitely by a month my spotty large pores and acne scars had reduced. Friends, family and colleagues were commenting on my complexions improvement. 9 months later I'm happy to go out make up free as though I get the occasionally spot (not break out) usually due to stress, it feels like the first time in a lifetime I'm happy with my skin. Ok it would be nice to not have the odd spot but hey considering a year before that I'd of been covered in them its a win, at least they less frequent anf less painful.
It has a mild smell (I dont mind it) and a tingle rather than burn when put on (you feel like its working which I like) which hardly last long. I've not yet and I've used it twice daily ever felt i needed to wash it off as was painful (I've done that before with some very expensive facecreams which were meant to help). In those 9 months I've only just started my 3rd pot, a little goes a long way which is a bonus as does feel like a lot to fork out on an initial outset. [I'm finding 1 pot does between 3 and 4 months on just my face]
Like I said it had worked wonders for me. Ive got sensitive and (according to facial spa ladies) dry lower levelskin and oil surface skin. The ladies in the office all have had a go, some haven't got on with it (generally just dry skin) others have (generally mixed/combination skin) so know that there are mixed reactions to the product. Like I said I love the product as my skin is finally looking less like a teenagers and more like an adults finally - a major confidence boast!!!

Ive been using this for the past month,just once a day at nighttime as i found it quite greasy to wear under my makeup, it stings a little for a few seconds but soon goes away.

i definately recommend giving this product a try as it has improved my skin vastly (less wrinkles,fades marks) and ive had many comments about how good my skin is looking , the pot will last for ages as well as you only need to use a very small amount.

Used sparingly but regularly, this ointment has a quite amazing affect. Removing dry, flaky skin & smoothing over small scarring & bumps, it really is like having a facial spa treatment.

After 2days of use, I had itchy red rash on my face, swollen eyelids and under eyes and my forehead. It was so bad that I called in "sick" to work because I looked like a mutant!!! I would not recommend this cream. It's not for everyone.
