Glycolic peel

Glycolic peel is a cosmetic treatment that is performed in a medspa. It is a type of chemical peel that is used to improve the appearance of the skin. Glycolic acid is used as the active ingredient in this procedure. It is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that is obtained from sugar cane. It is applied to the skin to exfoliate dead skin cells and promote collagen production. The peel helps to reduce wrinkles, improve skin texture, reduce pigmentation, and reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. It is important to note that it is a treatment that can cause temporary skin sensitivity and it is recommended to talk to a qualified professional before undergoing the treatment, and follow the skin care instructions after the procedure.

Post-Recovery and Results
The downtime for a glycolic peel can vary depending on the strength of the peel and the individual's skin type. A light glycolic peel may not require any downtime, while a deeper peel may cause redness, peeling, and flaking for a few days. After the treatment, the skin may be slightly red and sensitive for a few hours, but this should subside quickly. The peeling process usually starts after 2-3 days and it can last for up to 7 days. During this time, it is important to avoid sun exposure and to use a sunscreen with a high SPF. It is also important to avoid any other exfoliating products or procedures, such as scrubs or microdermabrasion, as well as avoid any other strong product that can irritate the skin like retinoids or acids.
