Glycolic Peel in Los Angeles, CA
If you think your skin looks dull and in need of a little rejuvenation, a glycolic peel may be the perfect treatment for you. Residents in Los Angeles and Pasadena, CA turn to Skin Deep Laser Med Spa for glycolic peels to diminish and erase fine lines, wrinkles and other minor skin imperfections to look younger and refreshed.
What are Glycolic Peels?
Glycolic peels are a very mild chemical peel that uses glycolic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in sugar cane and citrus fruits, so it is considered very safe for the skin. With glycolic peels, the outermost layer of the skin (epidermis) is treated to smooth the complexion and erase minor skin imperfections. During the process, collagen is produced which smooths out the skin resulting in a glowing, younger complexion.
Benefits of Glycolic Peels
Glycolic peels are gentle enough for most skin types and offer the following benefits:
- Quick treatment
- No recovery or downtime
- Stimulates collagen production
- Can be combined with other skin treatments
Are Glycolic Peels Right for Me?
Glycolic peels can be performed on anyone with enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots and other minor skin imperfections. If you want a fresher and smoother complexion, a glycolic peel may be right for you.
How are Glycolic Peels Performed?
Often called a “lunchtime facial,” glycolic acid is spread on the face with a soft brush. After it has been spread over your face, it is washed off and followed up with a moisturizer. The entire process takes 50 minutes to complete with most patients returning to work or their daily routine. Additional treatments may be necessary for a totally smooth and even complexion.
Glycolic Peel Recovery
With a glycolic peel, there is no downtime or recovery period. Patients resume their normal activities immediately following the treatment. For a week or two following the procedure, there is some slight peeling as the new skin becomes visible. Each patient receives a list of instructions to follow on cleansing and applying make-up. Additionally, it is important to stay out of the sun until the new skin is allowed to fully heal. Sunscreen is very important at all times. If additional treatments are necessary, it is best to wait a few weeks for the next one.
