If you are looking to unveil your smoother and younger skin beneath what you have now, you might be considering a glycolic peel.
Glycolic Peel: A simple, pain-free procedure
A light layer of the peel is applied to your face and left for a period of time. The peel is then removed and you are free to leave the office. With a light peel like a glycolic acid peel, there is no real recovery time and no pain relievers are necessary.
What is a Glycolic Peel?
A Glycolic Peel is simply a chemical peel that features glycolic acid as the main component.
Glycolic acid is currently a popular treatment for winkles 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 the peel removes that top layer of skin, the fresh, new layer is visible. The under layer of skin is undamaged and looks much 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.
