When it comes to problem skin treatments, we have all suffered with oily skin at some point in our lives. Its a condition that is frequently caused by hormonal ups and downs as well as genetics and warm, humid environmental conditions and is known to leave your skin “shiny” all the time. While it’s tempting to tackle oil by over-cleansing and drying out your skin, it can send sebum production into overdrive. Oily skin still needs hydration, and products that contain salicylic acid can significantly reduce oil and blemishes.

What is a Glycolic Acid?
It is a question we are often asked (naturally) prior to such a a treatment by our patients. Glycolic Acid Peel is made of sugar cane and is a great start to a deep cleansing facial that not only improves the functioning of the skin, But the appearance too.The 40% Glycolic Acid Peel solution used is penetrated through the epidermis. Despite the term “Acid Peel” there is no burning and no peeling, therefore no downtime. A peel is effectively an acidic product placed on the skin to increase epidermal cell proliferation and remove stratum corneum and plugs within pores. It essentially refers to the process of putting acid on the skin to exfoliate (acid that hasn’t been mixed or diluted with other skincare ingredients). It is considered the the “gold standard” in chemical peel formulations and is one of the most popular and used treatments for many professional skin therapists due to iits proven ability to transform the health and appearance of a multitude of skin types.
Benefits of Glycolic Peels
There are many benefits to such peels as they are known to stimulate natural collagen production, along with diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time. It’s much more than an anti-aging product, though as glycolic acid also lightens discolorations such as sun and age spots. It has also been noted to help with skin that’s prone to blackheads, whiteheads and acne by keeping pores clear of old skin which would normally clog them and cause problems. Last but not least, it penetrates deeply into the skin to reform texture and dullness leaving your skin looking bright, refreshed and refined.
