Medik8’s Sleep Glycolic is an overnight at-home peel with 10% active encapsulated, time-release glycolic acid that is slowly delivered into the skin overnight, to fade the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and help to decongest the skin to minimise the appearance of blemishes.
Fast, visible results on advanced signs of ageing with zero downtime.
Time Release Technology (crystal encapsulation) minimises any irritation caused from powerful levels of glycolic acid.
It can also be used as an entry-level at home peel for customers nervous about their first peeling experience or seasonal peeling customers, wanting at-home top ups in between sessions.
Perfectly complements our CSA philosophy - research confirms that vitamin A and glycolic acid work in harmony together to achieve faster anti ageing benefits.
Glycolic acid helps to separate the connections between keratinocytes (skin cells) in the outer layers of skin, dissolving the intercellular glue that holds together our top layer of dead skin cells to reveal fresh, new skin cells and kick start the cellular regeneration process.
Within the AHA family glycolic acid has the smallest molecular size which means it will penetrate the deepest into the skin to stimulate the production of type 1 collagen, helping to minimise the appearance of lines and wrinkles, boost volume within the skin and help to regenerate and soften the appearance of scar tissue. The glycosaminoglycans within the dermis are also stimulated through the usage of glycolic acid, helping to increase the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid protein resulting in a well hydrated complexion.
Glycolic acid is often hailed as the all-round acid - perfect for customers who want to target ageing, scarring, photo damaged and blemish concerns.
KOREAN CLOVER EXTRACT
Sleep Glycolic is infused with Korean Clover Extract to get the skin’s natural defending functions normalising overnight. Naturally, the skin works to protect itself during the day, and repair itself at night, however daily external factors such as blue light, stress & jet lag can disrupt the skin’s natural rhythm, leading to a reduction in hydration, an impaired barrier function and detoxification processes decline. This can lead to DNA damage, signs of fatigue and a dull skin.
Korean Clover Extract works alongside the glycolic acid by playing a supporting role in regenerating the natural overnight repair and hydration processes within the skin.
Skin protection and repair mechanisms are on track resulting in a brighter, healthier skin.
After cleansing in the evening, smooth a pea sized-amount of Sleep Glycolic across the face, neck and décolletage.
Follow with other serums, vitamin A and moisturiser.
Use 2-3 times a week.
We do not recommend the use of leave-on acids during 12 Weeks to WOW, to allow the skin barrier time to heal between frequent peels. However, Sleep Glycolic is a great option for use during the 6-8 week breaks between 12 Weeks to WOW courses, to help maintain results.
If you are having less frequent peels (eg. every 3 months), then Sleep Glycolic is ideal to use in between peels to maintain and optimise results.

Works in tune with the skin’s natural repair and hydrating processes
One of the major components of our natural extracellular matrix, helping to maintaining a firm and supple complexion, while providing intense hydration to the skin.
Hesperidin helps to stimulate blood circulation encouraging detoxification around the eye area to eliminate the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. Hesperidin is also used as a brightening agent as it helps to suppress the transport of melanosomes to stop aggregations of melanin in the skin, leading to a reduction in pigmentation and dark circles.
Ideal for reducing the appearance of puffiness and darkness under the eyes. Able to shrink the blood vessels underneath the eye, it diminishes dark circles while firming and lifting the entire eye area.
Helps to shield against damaging environmental pollutants, able to form a film over the skin, Moringa acts as an ‘urban shield’ to bat away pollution particles before they can create free radicals leading to premature ageing and photo damage.
Blocks the glycation process and prevent A.G.E.s from being formed, inhibiting the process which causes fine lines and wrinkles. Carnosine also helps protects the skin from infrared rays which leaves collagen untouched for firm, smooth skin.
