Glycolic Peels Detroit
The use of glycolic acid as a peeling agent has been a common practice dating back to the time of the ancient Greeks and Romans. Glycolic acid, a natural constituent of sugar cane juice and lactic acid together is used as a glycolic peel. This is the mildest of peel formulas and produces light peels for treatment of fine wrinkles, fine lines, areas of dryness, sun damage and mild acne scarring. Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands.
Glycolic chemical peels offered at the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery & Laser Center will refresh the skin and get rid of sun damage. It’s a great way to maintain the natural look of the skin and maintenance of a healthy complexion and texture. These peels can typically be repeated every two-four weeks to exfoliate the skin and improve skin texture. Six sequential treatments are needed to experience results such as reduction in fine lines or acne. After that time you may wish to undergo “maintenance” peels every few months.
Depending on your skin condition, glycolic chemical peels can be combined with IPL for even better results. These peels are safe and very effective as a superficial peel and are easily performed in our facility.
