Glycolic Chemical Peel Birthday Special


Glycolic Chemical Peel Treatment

The Glycolic Peel is a light peel involving the application of a chemical solution (usually acid-based) to remove the dead and damaged outer layers of the skin revealing a younger, clearer, and more radiant skin. Peels help reduce the appearance of age spots and wrinkles and are often used for improving acne and modest acne scarring. It produces significant improvement in the overall texture and smoothness of the skin.

How is the Peel Performed?
After cleansing, we apply a mild glycolic solution (alpha-hydroxy acid derived from sugar cane). Cool air from a fan will counteract the mild burning or stinging that may occur during this several-minute period. You will be monitored carefully during the entire process, and a neutralizing spray will be used to stop the treatment. A protective moisturizer is then applied. The entire process takes as little as 15 minutes.

How Many Peels Will I Need?
Because glycolic peels are superficial, and thus safer than other types of chemical peels, improvement is gradual. While a single peel will firm and freshen the skin, leaving a healthy glow, most patients should plan on a series of 5-6 peels to achieve their long-term goals. The treatments can be performed at 3 to 4-week intervals, gradually using higher strengths as the skin builds tolerance. Results are generally long-lasting, although some patients may find an occasional peel every 3 to 6 months helps to maintain beneficial effects.
