Benefits of Glycolic Peel Facials
A Glycolic Peel is an intensive resurfacing facial suitable for almost all skin types. Glycolic acid peels lift and tighten the skin, remove impurities, shrink pores and dramatically improve the overall look of skin on your face and neck.
These type of facials deliver amazing improvements for sun damaged skin, fine lines & wrinkles, acne and scarring.
What is a Glycolic Facial Peel?
Glycolic acid is actually a natural substance that is derived from of sugar cane!
Glycolic acid facial peels are a “medium-grade” form of chemical peel, which means that they target the epidermis (outer layer) of your skin rather than penetrating into the deeper layers.
Glycolic Facial Peels come in a variety of strengths. For this reason they should be administered by a dermatologist or a trained aesthetician – in order to get the maximum strength for your skin type, without damage or side effects.
When used properly, the positive results of Glycolic Facial Peels can last for several months.
Benefits of Glycolic Peel Facial
#1. Glycolic Acid Facial Peels Reduce Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Glycolic facial peels reduce wrinkles and other symptoms of aging. In addition to peeling away the top layer of damaged skin, Glycolic acid strengthens the deeper layers of the skin, which softens fine lines and gives a more smooth and “plumped” appearance.
#2. Glycolic Acid Facial Peels Make Pores Look Smaller
Glycolic acid facial peels also effectively shrink the appearance of enlarged pores. During a glycolic facial peel, the mild acidic application seeps into the epidermis and removes dead skin cells, as well as dirt and bacteria that is clogging
This reduces the appearance of pores for a younger, smoother appearance.
#3. Glycolic Acid Facial Peels Reverses Sun Damage
Glycolic acid peels expose a fresh layer of skin, lessening sun-related discoloration and dark spots on the surface of the skin. Additionally, glycolic acid stimulates the rapid regrowth and rebuilding of new skin cells – resulting in brighter, more even skin.
#4. Glycolic Acid Facial Peels Improve Acne
Glycolic acid facial peels are also effective in treating acne and reducing acne scars. A stronger dose of glycolic acid than is available “over-the-counter” is carefully used to remove layers of dead skin cells, and breakout-causing dirt and bacteria.
The result is smoother skin, smaller pores and drastically reduced acne breakouts.
