Skin Rejuvenation: Glycolic Peels
Glycolic peels use alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) to freshen and rejuvenate your skin by removing dead and damaged skin cells from the top layer. They are especially effective for skin that is showing visible signs of aging and sun damage, and for those who want to liven up their appearance with skin renewal and healthy glow.
At Windsor Dermatology, patients experience minimal discomfort and downtime associated with this procedure and quick results are clearly visible after only one treatment. They report smoother, healthier looking skin, with a more even skin tone and a reduction in fine lines and discolorations.
How It Works
The aging process and years of sun exposure slow the rate of cell replacement, leaving old, dead or damaged cells on the top layer of skin. These dead cells bond together and inhibit the generation of new healthy cells to replace them. This makes your skin look dull, uneven and older than it should.
Our aesthetician applies a 30-70% glycolic acid solution that loosens the bond that holds these dead skin cells together, revealing a new layer of skin that is fresher, smother and more youthful in appearance. Glycolic acid also helps to stimulate your body’s production of collagen and elastin—these also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
After your glycolic peel, you will notice improved skin texture. Your face will be softer and smoother, both to the touch and in appearance. You may notice a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin tone will appear more even and your complexion may be brighter, with less blotchiness and discoloration.
