What is a Glycolic or Chemical Peel?
A Glycolic peel or Chemical Peel is a safe process that removes a micro thin top layer of skin. Removal of these damaged cells stimulates cell division that results in plumper, healthier, newer cells.
The glycolic peel procedure smoothes and softens the skin, diminishes fine lines, decreases acne, even out discoloration and increases moisture retention.
The result is a wonderful appearance of glowing, healthier and more youthful skin!
This procedure can be preformed on the face, neck, chest, hands and even the arms and legs. For optimal results, peels are performed weekly over a period of six weeks.
Most people notice a change in skin appearance and texture right away. Improvement continues over the course of the treatments revealing fresher, younger skin. Mild peels usually take about 20 minutes, making the procedure convenient and accessible at any time of the day, even the lunch hour!
This form of skin rejuvenation is highly recommended for all types of skin, especially skin that has been sun-damaged and is beginning to show signs of aging.
