Located in Bala Cynwyd and serving Philadelphia, Pollard Plastic Surgery offers glycolic peel treatments to patients who desire a refreshed appearance without surgery.
Revitalize Your Skin with a Non-Surgical Glycolic Peel
Glycolic peels are a type of chemical peel that has glycolic acid as its main ingredient. These types of peels can be used to reduce the appearance of scars and acne for some patients. The rough outer layers of skin hold onto damage and can be safely removed with a glycolic peel. This reveals newer skin underneath and allows the skin to naturally rejuvenate itself.
Glycolic Peel Procedure
A glycolic peel is a chemical mixture with glycolic acid as the main component. It is applied to the skin in a thin layer. The chemicals begin working on the skin, stimulating the skin to increase its natural cleansing process and shed the outer layers of skin. The glycolic chemical mixture is removed after a specific amount of time. A neutralizing solution is applied to stop this process, and your skin is gently cleansed to remove all of the chemical solution.
After your chemical peel, you will need to be cautious of sun exposure. Your skin will be sensitive. You may desire to stay home for a couple of days while the skin heals and rejuvenates itself by naturally shedding dead skin cells. Follow all care instructions to ensure optimal success.
