Chemical Peels – Glycolic and Salicylic
Are you noticing that your skin has lost its natural luster?
As skin ages, the process of shedding dead skin cells takes longer and a layer of dull, discolored or mottled pigmentation continues to cover the more desirable look of the fresh, new skin underneath. You may benefit from glycolic acid skin peels that are effective and safe to use for the rejuvenation and restoration of youthful skin.
Glycolic acid is created from the alpha hydroxy acid group that is a naturally occurring acid found in citrus, apples, grapes and sugar cane. This chemical peel penetrates the outer layer of skin cells, known as the epidermis, and breaks the bonds of dull, dead skin cells to reveal the new living skin tissue beneath called the dermis.
Another benefit of glycolic acid is the exfoliation of the skin that stimulates the production of collagen. This action accelerates the renewal of new skin cells. Collagen formation fills in fine lines and wrinkles, lightens dark spots and evens out your complexion. The new skin is smoother, softer and retains a healthy glow.
Do you want to remove acne scarring or reduce acne breakouts?
For the treatment of acne and the scars that result from the condition, salicylic acid chemical peels are extremely effective. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid that is a derivative of sweet bark trees and willow bark. In addition, this peel is also derived from a form of aspirin that acts as an anti-inflammatory and soothes the surface of the skin cells.
As a superior treatment for an array of skin conditions, this chemical peel is ideal for treating acne scarring and will discourage further breakouts from occurring. Acne is largely due to the secretion of sebum that clogs pores on the face and supports the growth of bacteria. Salicylic acid is fat soluble and goes deep into these pores to dissolve the sebum, kill bacteria and peel away layers of acne scars and blemishes.
Salicylic acid peels will also remove blackheads, whiteheads and other blemishes that result from the congestion of the skin. This effective acid will peel off the dirty, discolored epidermis and provide the layer of smooth texture and the more even appearance of the dermis.
As most people tolerate this peel well, the affordability of the treatment and the superior results makes it a very popular choice for people who experience acne breakouts. For those who experience adult acne can also benefit from the anti-aging effects of this peel and use it as often as directed.
