Glycolic Facial Treatment

A glycolic facial is a type of chemical peel that uses glycolic acid to exfoliate the skin. Glycolic acid is a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that is naturally found in sugarcane and sugar beets. It is a small molecule that can penetrate the skin easily, making it an effective exfoliator.

Glycolic facials can be used to improve a variety of skin conditions, including:

  • Acne
  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone

Glycolic facials are performed by a licensed esthetician. The procedure begins with a consultation to discuss your skin goals and any concerns you may have. The esthetician will then cleanse your skin and apply a glycolic acid solution. The strength of the solution will be determined by your skin type and condition.

After the glycolic acid solution has been applied, the esthetician will massage your skin to help the acid penetrate. The treatment may also include a steam treatment to open up your pores and allow the acid to work more effectively.

Once the treatment is complete, the esthetician will apply a toner, moisturizer, and sunscreen to protect your skin. You may experience some redness and flaking after the treatment, but this is normal. The redness and flaking should subside within a few days.

Glycolic facials are a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of your skin. They are a popular treatment for people of all ages and skin types. If you are looking for a way to improve your skin, a glycolic facial may be a good option for you.

Benefits of Glycolic Facials

Glycolic facials offer a number of benefits, including:

  • Exfoliation: Glycolic acid is a powerful exfoliator that can help to remove dead skin cells and reveal the fresh, new skin underneath.
  • Acne treatment: Glycolic acid can help to reduce acne breakouts by killing bacteria and unclogging pores.
  • Wrinkle reduction: Glycolic acid can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by stimulating collagen production.
  • Age spot removal: Glycolic acid can help to fade age spots and other hyperpigmentation.
  • Sun damage repair: Glycolic acid can help to repair sun-damaged skin by stimulating the production of new skin cells.
  • Uneven skin tone: Glycolic acid can help to improve uneven skin tone by evening out the pigmentation.
