Glycolic Peel Info

Glycolic acid peel is a very mild chemical peel, used by a huge number of people in UK and US. It’s often known as a “lunch time peel”. Unlike, stronger peels (TCA Peel and Jessner), glycolic acid does not require any downtime. How does it work? Well, it’s pretty simple. Glycolic acid solution is applied to your face, hands, or chest area. Once there, it exfoliates dead skin cells and stimulates formation newer ones. This results in a brighter and younger looking skin. In addition, glycolic peel also helps to reduce fine lines and tiny scars. However, for this to happen a series of 5-6 chemicals are needed.

However, you have remember that you will need a series of peels in order to achieve a visible effect. Doing just one glycolic peel (or any other light peel) is pointless. So, after a while, you will have to spend a decent amount of money. If you want to save money, you can actually do glycolic peel yourself at home. The procedure is pretty safe and very simple.

The actual glycolic peel procedure is very simple. First you wash your face with water, dry it, and swab it with an alcohol pad. After that you apply glycolic acid solution with a small brush or a cotton pad. Personally, I think that brush is much better, but some people prefer pads. After that, you keep the solution on your face (or other body part) for 5-10 minutes. Do not keep it longer that 5 minutes if this is your very first peel. During this time you will feel slight burning. It’s totally normal. You can help alleviate it by fanning your face. Once you are done, wash your face with a neutralizer or a baking soda solution (a few table spoons in a 250 ml of water). After the glycolic acid is neutralized, wash your face with cold water. Once done, apply your daily moisturizer.
