Glycolic Acid Peel
Glycolic Acid Peel is a deep penetrating, alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), that is used in the treatment of acne, skin-spots, hyperpigmentation, and rough, sun-damaged skin.
The Glycolic Acid Peel penetrates deep into the skin’s dermis and is able to stimulate the body’s natural production of vital skincare compounds known as collagen and elastin. These compounds are responsible for stimulating cellular turnover, relieving the skin of dull, dead skin cells, and replacing them with fresh new skin cells. Because of the spike in collagen and elastin production the skin is far smoother, softer, and tighter, with a fully restored youthful glow!
Once the application is complete, patients may feel slight tingling and notice minor redness and peeling. This is completely normal as the process of cellular turnover is working to replace the dull, dead skin cell, and relieve the skin of any blemishes or abrasions. This redness will generally disappear within a few days and give way to vibrant skin, and tight, taught facial contours!
