Glycolic peels are some of the mildest available this light alpha hydroxy acid or AHA peel will help with exfoliation and cellular renewal and brighten your skin. A glycolic chemical peel is a very light skin peel that is very suitable for at home use. Glycolic acid is a natural constituent of sugar cane and some other crops and is widely used in skin care products. It will help speed up exfoliation to improve the texture and brightness of your skin. This peel is often performed by aestheticians, dermatologists, and cosmetic surgeons in strengthns up to 70%.
Glycolic acid is an irritant but is weak compared to stronger acids like TCA or trichloroacetic acid which is also commonly used for skin peeling procedures. You can expect some mild irritation, redness, and flaking of the skin afterwards with most low to mid strength glycolic peels. Which is one of the reasons for their popularity, there’s very little downtime. A medium depth TCA peel is going to likely take a week at least to heal unlike a medium strength glycolic peel with virtually no downtime.
Our glycolic acid chemical peeling solutions come in a variety of strengths, from 10% to 100% which you can dilute yourself. Get up to 40 peels out of each bottle. You can save a lot at the spa or dermatologist by doing it yourself at home with the easy provided instructions. It shouldn’t cost you a fortune to look like a million bucks and a regular skin peel can have you on your way.
Like any peel we recommend that beginners start off with a light solution and work their way up to more intense peels. If you’re pregnant, nursing, or have any severe health problems or taking medication contact your physician first.
