The game changer in home based exfoliation! Our exfoliating pads are fortified with Glycolic Acid, Moisturizers, and powerful antioxidants, dr.dermal’s Texture Correction Pads reveal smoother, revitalized skin after only the first use.
With 20% Glycolic Acid these pads are loaded with massive exfoliation power as they have the power of a professional skin peel in a single pad! Glycolic Acid has the smallest molecular size of all the AHAs so it penetrates deeper for predictable & reliable performance. It is the most dependable and widely used Alpha Hydroxy Acid due to its stability and reliability. It is derived from sugar cane making it a natural and sustainable active ingredient.
Formulated to give your skin unprecedented balance for a peel pad, the solution in the pads also contains hyaluronic acid for moisturization and a cocktail of multivitamins & antioxidants that protect your skin and deliver superior skin feel.
The individually foil wrapped pads preserve the potency of each pad and the small size makes them an ideal boost in your travel kit. Take your professional peel with you wherever you go!
Regular use exfoliates the surface layer of dead skin cells and stimulates cellular renewal. Delivers smoother skin instantly and fades blemishes, sun spots and superficial pigmentation over time. An essential anti aging product that can be used as prevention, or maintenance of mature skin.
These glycolic pads contain professional strength AHA and redness, tingling and slight irritation may occur and is normal. They are self neutralizing and do not need to be rinsed off. They are to be used in the evening only. These pads must be swiped gently over the skin as the power lies in the solution and not the fabric – do not rub or overstimulate as this will sensitize your skin! Avoid the use of other active products on the same evening that you use these pads – Do not use IntenCE Antioxidant Plasma or MicroRetinol 5 Rich Repair on the same evenings that you use these pads.
Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.
Recommended for use in the evening. Cleanse and dry skin before application. Wipe pad gently over the face and neck in small circular motions, paying particular attention to areas that require more treatment. Avoid upper and lower eyelids and lips. Leave to dry.

Q: Is this the same as a chemical peel?
A: Our Texture Correction Pads have a low pH level of 4 and contain glycolic acid at a 20% concentration, which is like a mild chemical peel.
Q: Do I have to rinse this product off?
A: No, this is a self-neutralising product and you don’t need to rinse it off. You can apply a moisturiser 10 to 15 minutes after application.
Q: Can I use this product daily?
A: It will depend on your skin tolerance. If you regularly have chemical peels, or use other products with AHA, your skin will be more tolerant. For first time users, we recommend using the products once every 3 to 4 days, thereafter you can increase the frequency as tolerance develops.
Q: Do I use the pad as a physical exfoliator?
A: No, this is a very important point. The exfoliation power of this product is in the liquid, and not the pad so it is very important to swipe the pad gently over the skin without any undue pressure.
Q: Is there any downtime after using this product?
A: It is normal for the skin to become red and tingly after applying the product. This usually dissipates within 5 to 10 minutes, and redness usually disappears within 20 minutes.
