Who the Glycolic Skin Peel is Right For
Glycolic acid is a gentle AHA acid that works by dissolving the bonds between skin cells. Because it works differently from other chemical peeling agents, it has almost no side effects and requires very little downtime. It's one of the mildest skin peels available. Glycolic acid is great for all skin types, whether young, mature, dry, or sensitive. Glycolic acid provides a gentle exfoliation that fades fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, sun damage and acne scars from all faces. It's the perfect choice for those who want a skin peel with little to no discomfort, side effects or downtime.
Benefits of Glycolic Acid
Glycolic acid is an AHA acid, that increases collagen and elastin production in the under layers of the skin, to make skin more flexible and more resilient. It strengthens the skin's lipid barrier, to hold in moisture and slow the signs of aging. It gently sloughs away the upper layers of the skin to do away with fine lines and wrinkles; dead, dry skin; and sun-damaged cells. It clears pores to treat and prevent acne in normal to dry skin types. Best of all, it increases cell turnover for healthier skin that keeps on glowing from one maintenance peel to the next.
