Red Lotus Spa and Laser Centre Abbotsford Glycolic Peel Treatments
As a natural acid Glycolic Peels are used to treat skin conditions such as blemish removal, skin brightening and skin renewal. Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA). This is a treatment that is excellent for its exfoliating properties towards fading sunspots, acne scars, blemishes and fine lines.
Glycolic acid stimulates new cell regeneration by penetrating in the deeper layers. This allows for increased collagen production. Glycolic acid’s fast acting results can be witnessed through the rapid shedding of the skin’s exterior to reveal fresh new glowing skin underneath.
Treatments are recommended with a break of one or two weeks between sessions. The glycolic acid itself is primarily made up of sugar, the smallest molecule particle in the alpha hydroxy family this allows the acid to penetrate the skin layers quickly for treatment.
