70% GLYCOLIC ACID PEEL
Non-invasive chemical peel for improving skin texture and discolorations

HEALTHIER SKIN WITH NO DOWNTIME
Our 70% Glycolic Acid Peel can make a real difference in the treatment of skin discoloration and a dull, uneven complexion. A series of 4-6 treatments can result in a healthier, more youthful appearance - and has been proven to deliver exceptional results for fine lines, darkened pigmentation, and acne scars.

HOW DOES A CHEMICAL PEEL WORK?
The quick, 20 minute procedure involves application of a chemical solution to rejuvenate the skin and minimize discolored and/or irregular skin. Fresh skin is then generated, which is usually smoother and more even in color. It is safe to lightly apply make-up immediately following your chemical peel so you leave the office with a healthy glow - and no downtime!

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER TREATMENT?
Your skin may look and feel like a mild windburn for the next two or three days prior to peeling. After 48 hours, slight flaking may occur, which can easily be controlled with a mild moisturizer. Let the skin shed at its own rate to avoid scarring or rashes. Do not pull or peel shedding skin.

Following your chemical peel, your skin may be more sensitive to sun exposure. Take extra precautions by using sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. We recommend limiting sun exposure for at least one week after your peel to avoid damaging your freshly peeled skin. Your skin should look clearer, smoother and more vibrant.
