This treatment produces a renewal of the outer layers of the skin. It acts as a super moisturiser and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin while bringing elasticity and flexibility to the skin, which then looks newer, more youthful and smoother. It is completely pain free and can be perfomed on the face, neck line hands or even the back.
Glycolic peelings are indicated for patients who wish to reduce signs of sun damage, pigmentation, age spots, acne, fine lines and wrinkles as well as to even out skin tone giving a more radiant and fresher appearance.
Peelings can be done to different degrees depending on the thickness of the skin, the depth of the wrinkles and the aesthetic result desired. Patients are advised to wear sun block for several weeks after treatment and to continue with a minimum of factor 30 sunscreen indefinitely to give lasting results.
