AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) and BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acids) fall under the acid category (they are acidic with average pH level of 3 ~ 4). AHA and BHA can be found easily in nature, usually extracted from fruits or plants.
AHA and BHA work on the uppermost layers of the skin’s surface, loosening the bonds between the layers filled with dead skin cells and the new, radiant skin beneath. This exfoliation process encourages our body to produce new & healthier skin cells. AHA and BHA can also clean clogged pores. By using AHA or BHA, the skin surface will become smoother, firmer, brighter and more even in tone.
Chemical exfoliation with AHA or BHA is a very popular and widely used skincare method in recent years. However, most of the AHA or BHA skincare products recommended for home use contain relatively low acid level (usually below 5%) in order to ensure safety during use.
The AHA / BHA treatment of ROHTO AOHAL CLINIC has the same mechanism, which is using AHA or BHA to chemically exfoliate, treat acne and clean clogged pores.
However, we use specialized AHA/BHA products with a much higher acid level (about 20%) and a much lower pH range compared to the products recommended for home use. At our clinic, the doctors will directly guide and supervise the treatment to ensure safety for our customers.
A higher acid level for AHA and BHA products allows deeper impact into the skin surface. Therefore; when compared to the normal AHA/BHA products customers use at home, our treatment produces much stronger and faster result in terms of treating acne, especially on blackheads, whiteheads and small pimples.
On top of that, our AHA / BHA treatment can also improve the skin surface, helping the skin become smoother and more even in tone. The treatment can clean clogged pores and reduce post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentations that usually comes with acne. For aging skin, the treatment can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and fight certain signs of aging such as dull complexion, rough skin...
After AHA / BHA treatment, our customers can also use our acne extraction service according to doctor's recommendation to achieve the best result.
Based on the skin condition of each customer, our doctors will advise which one to be used, AHA or BHA.
