Alpha-Hydroxy Acids, such as Glycolic Acid, are one of the safest methods of exfoliation and increasing skin turnover. As we age, a number of skin changes occur which require different types of skin care and treatments. One such change is that the rate of the skin cell replacement is reduced, producing a thinner, more fragile skin. Skin is replaced every three weeks at age 20 but this increases to every nine weeks by age 50.
The use of Glycolic Acid will help to stimulate and speed cell turnover, thereby producing more vibrant and smoother looking skin. The top layer of skin will be thinned by the exfoliation of dead cells, but in the deeper layers of skin, new collagen and elastin will be stimulated and the skin will actually become thicker, tighter and more firm.
Glycolic peels at strengths of 30% and above have been scientifically proven to stimulate collagen production deep in the skin.
A series of Glycolic Acid peels can be utilized to:
* Stimulate New Cell Production
* Stimulate New Collagen Production
* Improve Skin Tone
* Improve Skin Texture
* Reduce appearance of Pore Size
* Improve the appearance of Fine Lines and Crepiness
* Improve Blotchiness and Irregular Pigmentation
* Improve appearance of Shallow Acne Scars
Peel can also be used periodically as a refreshing acid wash to exfoliate, re-texturize and revitalize the skin.
