New to chemical peels? Check out this article to help you choose the best peel for your skin type.
This peel set contains the essentials you will need for performing and after care of a 50% Glycolic Peel.
For use in clinics, spas, and for at-home use by experienced users. This is considered a higher strength peel, and is recommended only for those who are experienced users of glycolic peels.
Glycolic acid peels are a more gentle form of chemical peel that primarily penetrates the most superficial layer of skin. They remove blemishes, brighten skin, help to fade or eliminate sunspots, hide acne scars, diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and give the skin a healthy glow. Because they are mild, glycolic peels require less recovery time. Best results are achieved after performing multiple peels over a period of time.
Due to the mild nature of glycolic acid peels, recovery time is virtually nonexistent. Slight irritation or redness may occur to the skin, but it will not be enough to disrupt normal daily activities, and can usually be covered up with make-up starting the day after the peel has been performed.
Glycolic acid peels can cost anywhere between $150 to $300 per treatment at the Dermatologist or MedSpa, with repeated procedures recommended every six weeks.
Other things to Consider
Because microdermabrasion and chemical peels both deeply exfoliate the skin, they should not be used concurrently. It is recommended that non-professionals consult a physician before deciding to use a chemical peel. Always avoid sun after a chemical peel procedure, and use sunscreen on a daily basis.
