Glycolic Acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA).
it is suitable for many skin types, especially oily acne prone and mature aging skin.
Glycolic Acid stimulates collagen production. This softens fine lines and reduces wrinkles over time. Glycolic acid can also help fade pigmentation.
All of this is possible because the use of Glycolic Acid increases cellular turn over which smooths tone and texture of the skin.
It works by loosening the dull and dead skin cells off the surface of the skin. This process allows the pores to excrete oil properly, which can help reduce acne.
Glycolic Acid sends signals to the epidermis to produce healthy skin cells resulting in stimulation of collagen.
I highly recommend you speak with your esthetician about a chemical peel with Glycolic Acid today. Now, after your esthetician sees your skin and does an analysis he or she may actually recommend a different acid other than Glycolic or a combination. Either way your skin will look amazing.
I have one more bit of advice. Please be sure you are seeing a licensed esthetician or dermatologist for your chemical peel. They are specifically trained to know what level of chemical peel to use on your skin. You should never molt like a snake after a chemical peel. This actually causes more damage than it does help the skin.
