If you are looking for something to add to your normal skincare routine, we have just the thing. With a variety of different treatments, including regular glycolic peels, our patients have noticed visible improvements in skin tone and texture. If you are new to the world of glycolic peels, however, you may not be quite as familiar with the benefits. So, what are they?
If you are looking for an anti-aging skin care treatment that will help combat fine lines, then it may be time to consider glycolic peels. By targeting the top layer of your skin, glycolic peels help your skin to naturally heal itself which in turn produces more collagen in the process.
As you age, your skin’s outer dead cell layer thickens, making it feel rougher and dryer. Moisturizers only hide this temporarily. However, glycolic peel helps soften rough skin and returns moisture by removing the rough dead cells and exposing the normal live moist cells.
By removing the dead cell layer, glycolic peels unclog the pores. This can help to clear up your skin and get rid of nasty acne or milia in the process.
Hyperpigmentation is another thing that results from sun damage over time. Using a pigment stabilizer and a glycolic peel can help reduce the irregular color of your skin and make it look more even.
Skin rejuvenation programs like the Obagi® NuDerm System cause gradual loss of the outer dead cell layer. This produces significant flaking. By doing a glycol peel first, this flaking is significantly reduced or eliminated.
