If you're looking for a non-invasive treatment to rejuvenate your skin, glycolic peel treatment at Safe Med Spa might be the solution for you. This treatment is a popular choice for those who want to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, as well as improve the overall texture and tone of their skin.
What is a glycolic peel?
A glycolic peel is a type of chemical peel that uses glycolic acid, a naturally occurring alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from sugarcane. It works by exfoliating the outer layer of dead skin cells, revealing smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin. The strength of the glycolic acid used in the treatment can vary depending on the individual's skin type and desired results.
What are the benefits of glycolic peel treatment?
Exfoliation: The main benefit of glycolic peel treatment is its ability to exfoliate the skin. By removing dead skin cells, the treatment reveals a smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking complexion.
Anti-aging: Glycolic acid stimulates collagen production, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
Acne treatment: Glycolic acid has been shown to be effective in treating acne, by unclogging pores and reducing inflammation.
Hyperpigmentation: Glycolic acid can help to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, including dark spots, sun damage, and melasma.
What to expect during a glycolic peel treatment?
Before the treatment, a trained skincare professional will assess your skin and determine the appropriate strength of glycolic acid to use. They will cleanse your skin and apply the glycolic acid solution, which will remain on your skin for a few minutes. You may feel a tingling or stinging sensation during the treatment, but it should not be painful.
After the treatment, your skin may be red and slightly sensitive. You should avoid sun exposure and wear broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher for several days after the treatment. Your skincare professional will provide you with aftercare instructions and recommend a skincare routine to maintain the results of your treatment.
