What is a Medical Glycolic Peel?
Chemical peels are skin treatments that use a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the skin on your face by removing the damaged outer layers. Alpha Hydroxy acids (AHA’s), such as glycolic, lactic, or fruit acids are mild forms that are used. The acids work to dissolve dead skin cells and stimulate the production of collagen to reveal smoother, brighter, and more youthful looking skin. Since the dead and old skin is being removed, glycolic peels can help improve uneven texture, remove sun spots and pigmentation, blemishes, wrinkles, acne, and uneven dryness.
The procedure is a short one. It typically only takes about 10-15 minutes. While all chemical peels carry some risk, they are an extremely safe procedure that can lead to incredible results. Common side effects are temporary flaking or peeling of the skin, redness, and dryness. Since you’ve just removed the layers of dead skin, your new skin is now exposed so it may be tender and sensitive. Your skin will also be extremely vulnerable to any sun damage, so wearing sunscreen and taking other protective measures are a must. Chemical peels are also a treatment that is usually recommended for multiple treatments for optimal results.
