The Sothys Skin Resurfacing and Peeling treatment was launched with Sothys French trainer Fanny Deveze who arrived in Sri Lanka to conduct an extensive training work shop for the Sothys partner salons.

The treatment which boasts a number of skin benefits such as radiance, skin lightening, pore minimizing and anti ageing properties gently lifts off layers of dead skin to and stimulates the formulation of new skin cells and collagen. The treatment uses a unique combination of Glycolic acids and microdermabrasion to resurface the skin. Next powerful antioxidants are gently massaged into the skin to improve the functions of the cells giving your skin a new lease of life.


A step by step Sothys Skin Resurfacing and Peeling Professional Care programme is given below.

What is it?

The latest in house facial treatment by Sothys which guarantees new skin in just 90 minutes, it gently gets rid of dead dull skin to reveal your true beauty within.

What does it do?

Gives your skin instant glow and radiance, lightens the skin, reduces pigmentation (brown spots/marks),

lightens acne marks, reduces open pores, reduces fine line and wrinkles and evens out the skin tone.

How does it work?

Like all organs in our body; with age, stress and unhealthy life styles our skin too slows down. The reproduction of new skin cells is also delayed due to this which in turn leads to delayed skin repair. Pigmentation, uneven skin tone, fine lines and dull skin are usually the out- come of this.

Thanks to this amazing new treatment by Sothys we are now able to speed up the cell cycle and bring out new skin faster.

The treatment uses a two stage peeling system that gently and effective lifts off the dead skin. The first stage involves a purifying microdermabrasion mask containing corundum crystals and white clay. This mask gently polishes away layer upon layer of dead skin while the white clay absorbs excess oil and dirt that is stuck deep within the pores.

The second stage of peeling contains 20% Glycolic acid which performs a controlled peeling of the skin. This also stimulates new skin cells and collagen thus giving the skin a more youthful appearance.

The treatment also contains ingredients to detoxify the skin and provides the skin with oxygen that is vital for healthy and efficient skin.

Step 1 - Cleanse

Skin is cleansed with a special cleanser containing papaya enzymes to gently remove all traces of dirt and make up, preparing the skin to receive the treatment.

 Step 2 - Detoxifying exfoliating paste

A detoxifying exfoliating paste containing microdermabrasion crystals is used thereafter to gently polish away layers of dead skin while eliminating toxins.

 Step 3 - AHA / BHA peel

A mild concentration of fruit and milk acids that effectively removes dead skin and stimulates cell renewal is used in this step to bring forth new skin.

 Step 4 – Extracting impurities

Effective removal of black heads and white heads is carried out at this stage to clear out the skin’s pores.

 Step 5 - Rebalancing balm

A balm containing Jojoba oil to soothe and hydrate the skin while balancing its PH levels is gently massaged.

 Step 6 - Oxygenating mask

 This special mask provides oxygen to the skin cells which in turn detoxifies the skin leaving it soft and radiant

While maintaining the skin’s natural balance and preserving its levels of comfort, this procedure has no side effects or pain involved. Using the safest and trusted methods of exfoliation – peeling (with glycolic acid AHA and salicylic acid BHA) and microdermabrasion (using corundum microcrystals - alumina), the Estheti Centre helps rejuvenate and resurface healthy glowing skin safely and effectively.
