What is a Glycolic Peel?
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.
