Glycolic Acid Peels are the Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) treatments used in our Medical Spa.
Glycolic acid loosens the glue between your skin cells. This helps the skin to exfoliate more rapidly while penetrating into the deeper layers of your skin and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
Glycolic peels exfoliate the top layer of your skin. The treatment takes about ten to twenty minutes to complete. No anesthetic is needed as the peel is a mild one which produces just a slight stinging sensation. The skin is first cleansed and then the solution is applied to the skin and left on for a predetermined amount of time.
The skin may appear red immediately after treatment and it will continue to peel for several days. Nevertheless, patients are able to resume most normal activities after treatment. Within one week, the skin will appear brighter and more youthful.
With repeated visits your complexion appears smoother, less pigmented and VIBRANT! Glycolic has the ability to penetrate and live within your skin cells, allowing increased results which can be identified for days after your treatment.
Glycolic treatments can be combined with Microdermabrasion for optimal results.
