A glycolic acid peel treatment offers skin renewal by rapidly removing the damaged layer of surface skin cells to reveal fresh skin, and stimulate cell rebuilding and restructuring of deeper skin layers. This procedure can help the skin appear smoother, healthier, plumper and tighter, with more even pigmentation.
During the glycolic peel process, a high concentration of glycolic acid is applied to your skin for a short period of time and then chemically neutralized to end the treatment.
Glycolic peels are usually done in a series of controlled superficial peels. Glycolic acid peels are not toxic to skin cells and are used as superficial peels, requiring little skin recovery time.
Glycolic acid peels can help:
- Improve acne prone skin
- Reverse superficial sun damage
- Light exfoliation
- Clean pores
The first step to determining which chemical peel is right for you is a medical evaluation and treatment and designing your individualized plan.
