Glycolic acid peel
Glycolic acid peel, also known as Light Chemical Peel, is currently a popular and effective treatment for wrinkles, blemishes and acne. Glycolic acid, a fruit acid, is part of the alpha hydroxyl family of natural ingredients, and it is derived from sugar cane. It is safe to use on all skin types. When applied to the skin, it helps to remove the older, rougher, and dryer skin that is attached onto the surface of the dead skin. Glycolic acid peel removes the top layer of skin while increasing the production of new collagen, elastin, and other proteins within the skin layers. The result is smoother, clearer, younger and tighter looking skin.
