Hyperkeratosis and fruit acid peels
Has anyone heard of using fruit acid peels for the treatment of hyperkeratosis? I hope you can help with this one - the explanation may be a bit long winded, but I'll get there eventually.
A local beautician who rents a room to an Aesthetic Practitioner described observing a client who had 'excessive hard skin' on his feet, having them wrapped with a fruit acid preparation for a short time, which upon removal enabled the practictioner to remove the hard skin with gentle scraping with a wooden tongue depressor.
Needless to say the client was impressed, as was the beautician. She wanted to know if I offered the same service. I have spoken to another Aethetic practitioner who seems to think that the strength of the fruit acid would have be quite a bit stronger than that used for facial peels, but could offer no more information than that.
Hope you can help, as I do have one or two clients myself who would benefit from the service.
