Glycolic peel

Glycolic peel is a type of chemical face peeling. It is performed using glycolic acid – a substance that is found in unripe beets, sugarcane, grapes.

Quick result

Suitable for all areas of the face and body.


What is glycolic peel?

Being one of the types of surface chemical peeling, it primarily helps cleanse the upper layer of the skin from dead horny cells, while evening its relief by reducing the thickness of the stratum corneum, while increasing the thickness of the living layers of the epidermis, normalizing pigmentation in areas excessively stained with melanin ( freckles, age spots).

Glycolic peel is a chemical peeling procedure in which the main component of the drug is glycolic acid (in other words, hydroxyacetic acid).

    Glycolic peel

    Glycolic acid belongs to the group of fruit acids and in nature it is found in unripe grape fruits, beets or sugarcane. The glycolic acid molecule has a relatively small size among other fruit acids, so its penetration into the upper layers of the skin occurs quickly. At the same time, it is easily perceived by the cells of the epidermis and is able to affect the deep layer of the skin, stimulating the work of collagen hyaluronic acid without complications and unpleasant consequences.

    Glycolic peel preparations contain glycolic acid of various concentrations from 5 to 70%. The activity of the drug for glycolic peeling also depends not only on the dose of acid concentration, but also on the pH of the finished solution. For example, if it is necessary to penetrate the agent into a deeper layer of the skin, the pH of the solution decreases, and the concentration of glycolic acid rises.
