Glycolic Acid Peel is commonly used to recover your younger and smoother skin and give a fresh appearance to the skin. As the name suggests, Glycolic Acid is the main component in Glycolic Acid Peel. Glycolic Acid is a fruit acid derived from sugarcane juice. The active agent has been separated and synthesized and available in various combinations today.
Glycolic Acid is also a common ingredient in most of the anti-ageing and skin brightening cosmetic creams available today. Glycolic Acid Peels are primarily used to treat acne and lighten acne scars. The treatment can be applied on the face, hands, neck and back to renew and refresh the skin and give a youthful appearance. Glycolic Acid Peels are usually part of most of the skin treatment procedures like pigment treatments and anti-ageing treatments.
The treatment using Glycolic Acid Peel is simple and light. Initially, the skin is cleansed with a soap free cleanser. The Glycolic Acid is then applied to the skin. The peeling agent is left for 5-10 minutes and neutralized thereafter. A post peel balm and sunscreen are then applied.
Your dermatologist may recommend the use face wash and sunscreen as a follow up of the treatment.
