Peeling with AHAs: Beauty and antiageing ally

Peeling with AHAs is a treatment designed for all skin types and aims to remove skin’s top layers in order to create a new epidermis layer that will be better in quality and brighter. Depending on our skin’s requirement for renewal, peeling with AHAs can be light, medium and deep.

The α-hydroxy acids (AHAs) applied during the peeling process have the ability to remove dead cells from the skin. This property of theirs is the foundation for the renewal of the skin, the promotion of collagen synthesis and the stimulation of blood circulation. Fine lines and wrinkles are diminished, sebum secretion is regulated and spots and discolorations are immediately repaired.

MEY OF SWITZERLAND recommends products with AHAs, which prepare the skin for the application of peeling and also, may be used during and/or after the completion of the treatment, according to the needs of the skin.



MEY AHA COMPLEX CREAM is an ideal night cream, with rich antiageing action. It contains glycolic acid (AHA), which acts as an exfoliating agent that removes dead cells from the surface of the skin. The result is a smoother skin with a youthful appearance, due to the reduction of wrinkles. A secondary benefit of glycolic acid is its ability to attract and disperse moisturisers to the skin’s surface. AHA COMPLEX contains a combination of extracts derived from plants (Equisetum arvense) and fruits (lemon, pineapple, passion fruit and grape) which offer moisturising, firming and smoothing properties presenting a radiant skin without discoloration.


The product MEY DEEP SMOOTHING & CELL RENEWAL LOTION is a gentle, but effective, exfoliating solution that ideally combines the excellent properties of α-hydroxy acids (glycolic and lactic acid) with those of β-hydroxy acids (salicylic acid), to relieve of rough and dry skin that has suffered destructive environmental effects. It is an intensive cell renewal care that helps to eliminate the visible signs of photoageing, while leaving the skin softer, cleaner and rejuvenated. It contains a complex of carbohydrates, essential for the skin, which has the property of retaining moisture and at the same time helps to reduce the sensation of “stinging” and “burning”. Repeated use can lead to an improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
