What is a glycolic acid peel?

One of the most effective ingredients to treat a variety of skin concerns is glycolic acid. There are various scientific studies that recognize the effectiveness of this acid. A glycolic acid peel removes dead skin cells in a quick and effective manner. This peel is suitable for people above 30 years old since, after this age, the skin has more difficulty with losing dead skin cells naturally. The result is dull skin with impurities. The peel not only removes dead skin cells and gives the skin a fresh look, but also decreases the visibility of superficial pigmentation spots and sun damage. When the acid is used in higher concentrations, it can even stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which makes the skin more supple and gives the skin a younger appearance.

Is the glycolic acid peel suitable for me?

 The glycolic acid peel can be applied to the following skin conditions:

— acne and acne scars
oily skin
— rosacea
— pigmentation spots
— fine lines
— large pores
— dull skin

Do you have one of the above-mentioned skin conditions, and would you like to know whether or not the glycolic acid peel is a suitable treatment for your skin? Make an appointment and receive a free skin scan at BLOY Institute. 

Treatment with glycolic acid peel

After we have set up a personal treatment plan during the skin analysis, the treatment can start. Before the peel is applied to the skin, the skin is cleaned thoroughly. Once the skin is clean, the peel can do its job. The peel may give a slight burning sensation to the skin. The length of the peel is customized to what your skin needs; mostly, it lasts a couple of minutes. As soon as the peel has done its job, the skin is neutralized, which makes the tingling sensation disappear almost instantly. Depending on your skin concerns, the peel may be repeated a few times.
