Glycolic Skin peel
Glycolic Skin peel
Glycolic acid peels are simply a chemical peel that features glycolic acid as the main component.
Glycolic acid is currently a popular treatment for wrinkles and acne. Part of the alpha hydroxyl family of natural ingredients, glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane and is a fruit acid. When applied to the skin, it helps to remove the “glue” that holds the older, rougher and dryer skin on the surface. When it removes that top layer of skin, the fresh, new layer is visible. It’s this layer that’s without damage and which looks fresher.
People who have glycolic acid peels are often amazed with the results – they look younger, with fewer fine lines and wrinkles and if they have acne, they often notice their skin is quite a bit less oily and is much clearer.
Typically, a skin peel is classified as light, medium or deep.
A light chemical peel removes the epidermis, the top layer of the skin. It is effective in treating fine lines, age spots, skin discoloration and dryness. A medium skin peel penetrates the epidermis and the upper layer of the dermis, the middle layer of skin. It is effective in treating deep wrinkles, acne, acne scars and pigmentation. A deep chemical peel penetrates the lower layer of the dermis and effectively treats deep lines and wrinkles, scars and pigmentation.
Benefits of the treatment
Many skin imperfections are the result of sun damage, acne, ageing or a build-up of dead skin cells that clog the pores making the skin appear dull, wrinkled, spotty, scarred and or patchy.
A chemical peel can dramatically improve the appearance of the skin on the face, hands and décolletage. A skin peel leaves your skin looking smoother, healthier, plumper and tighter.
