PHAs fall under the AHA family. They are a much larger sized molecule compared to more common AHAs like glycolic and lactic acids, they do not penetrate as deeply into the skin as they work on the outer layers of the skin.

PHAs are used for their exfoliating, skin smoothing, moisturising and anti-aging benefits, it is a strong humectant which supports maintaining skin hydration with little to no tingling or irritation.


45 or 60 minutes

what to expect during a TREATMENT

Your PHA Refine and Hydrate treatment will begin with a deep cleanse created by Ultraceuticals to ensure that your skin has been thoroughly prepared for the treatment. This is followed by an in-depth skin analysis to ascertain whether your skin is appropriate for the treatment and any areas of concern.

The PHA refining solution will be on your skin for up to 10 minutes. The peel is removed with soothing cool water, and it is normal to experience a warm sensation on your skin as the PHA stimulates the blood flow and oxygen in your skin. A warm towel is then placed over the face and neck. Followed by a relaxing massage with an Ultraceuticals mask specific to your skin and finished with day or night products applied.


PHA  – GluconolactoneA polyhydroxy acid (PHA), Gently lifts dead skin cells from the skin surface making the skin smooth and even.

In the long term, it provides anti-aging benefits, especially thickness and decreased wrinkles.

Panthenol dramatically improves the appearance of dehydrated, dull and coarse skin texture

Sodium Hyaluronate supports the skin’s natural moisturising factor which significantly hydrates the skin


Specifically, the PHA Refining treatment will tackle:

  • Effectively exfoliates the skin by removing surface residue and impurities without disturbing the skin’s natural barrier for a smoother, brighter complexion. 
  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines
  • Maintains moisture and hydration balance in the skin

We recommended a course of 3-6 PHA treatments over 6-12 weeks and appropriate home care to obtain optimal results.

After treatment care

Your skin will feel hydrated, plump and smooth following your treatment, it is best to use your recommended Ultraceuticals homecare regime, with a focus on hydration to maintain the hydration level in your skin in the following 5 days. You can continue to use active skin care products as there is no downtime with this treatment.
