If you are looking to uncover the smooth and younger skin beneath what you have now, you might be considering a glycolic acid peel. The benefits are immense. This anti-aging treatment with skin renewing properties is used to smooth wrinkles, fade hyperpigmentation and sun damage, and the overall improvement of the tone and texture of the skin.
Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that natural ingredient is derived from sugar cane and is a fruit acid. When applied to the skin, it helps to remove the rougher and dryer skin on the surface. When it removes that top layer of skin, the fresh, new layer is visible.
Clients 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.
There are few if any side effects to having a glycolic acid peel. After the procedure you might feel some burning and have some redness, but it often goes away quickly. If your skin is sensitive or very fair you are more likely to encounter these discomforts.
Glycolic acid can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so you should wear sun block after having a glycolic acid peel.
Often one glycolic acid peel isn’t enough. You will usually be given a series of treatments over a prescribed period of time.
