What is a Glycolic Peel?
Among the mildest and most popular types of chemical peels, glycolic peels use glycolic acid, a alpha hydroxy acid (fruit acid) naturally found in sugar cane, to gently break epidermal bonds and loosen dead skin in order to exfoliate the skin. By removing the dead skin cells, a glycolic peel stimulates the cell renewal process for a healthier, more vibrant complexion. At the same time, glycolic peels stimulate the production of elastic fibers in the skin, including collagen and elastin, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles while providing a smoother, softer complexion.
Glycolic peels provide a number of dermatologic and aesthetic benefits, including improved clarity, reduced acne and breakouts, soothing and healing damaged skin, reducing flare-ups in cases of rosacea, and improving hyper-pigmentation, and providing anti-aging benefits. Meanwhile, the gentle treatments will not cause scabbing or excess peeling not the skin. Each glycolic peel can be customized depending on your unique skin’s needs, and typically lasts around 75 minutes.
Because of their gentle effectiveness, Spa Alana is happy to offer a variety of customized glycolic peel options based on your unique dermatologic makeup. Whether you need a more intense treatment or just regular light exfoliation, Spa Alana will be happy to serve you. Each of our skin care experts is supremely knowledgable and adept at choosing the right glycolic peel based on your goal and administering it for maximum benefit.
