Renewal
Glycolic acid peels (formulated from sugar cane) are virtually downtime-free skin treatments, which come with mild redness or irritation as the only likely after-effect. Glycolic acid chemical peels are ideal for people who suffer from excess sebum, and these treatments may rejuvenate the skin without much downtime. Glycolic acid peels, in particular, contain alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) that gently exfoliate the skin to unclog oil-filled sebaceous glands. Peels that utilize AHAs penetrate the skin and help remove layers of dull, dry skin. The skin renewal cycle is roughly 28 to 32 days without any exfoliation assistance, but AHA peels can speed up theprocess.

Recovery
The time needed for healing and recovery after any skin procedure varies according to the size and depth of the treated area. Someone who has the full face resurfaced, for example, will have a longer recovery time than someone who has only a small area of skin treated.

Typically, a treated area might be pink, tender, black and blue, or  swollen. It is important to follow any post-procedure directions that you receive from us.

Cold packs and  nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs, such as  aspirin or ibuprofen) may help reduce swelling and pain. After skin regrowth occurs, the skin will remain red for several weeks. Homeopathic Arnica Montana my be recommended for the temporary relief from bruising, swelling and pain associated with soft tissue injury.

Proper care of the treated area while the skin is healing is extremely important.
  • Rinse the skin several times a day with cool tap water to avoid infection. Depending on the procedure, you may be advised to avoid soaps and perfumes.
  • If you are using an ointment or dressing on the treated area, change it daily to keep the area moist and promote healing.
  • Avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen (if you are not peeling) every day. Remember that if you have had resurfacing or dermabrasion, new skin is more susceptible to sun damage.

20% Glycolic Treatment Pads

20% Glycolic Treatment Pads

Glycolic Treatment Pads 20% - A stronger strength for oily and acne prone skin

These glycolic acid pads are convenient and easy-to use as they gently exfoliate, moisturize and assist in the removal of excess oil and residue on the skin. The product also contains antioxidants to deliver additional skin enhancement benefits.

20% Formulation -- This patented pad system delivers ultra pure glycolic acid in combination with the antioxidant benefits of liposomal Vitamins A, C, E and Co-Q10. However, Dr. Mash recommends that you start slowly if using the pads as a facial peel. This strength is very suitable for use on hands, elbows, and knees.

Glycolic acid has become a forerunner in the fight against wrinkles, and has been going strong since its introduction to the skin care market more than ten years ago. And with good reason. This powerful acid, derived from sugar cane, loosens up the glue that holds dead skin cells together. The effect is to exfoliate those cells, leaving smoother, younger skin in its stead. The depth of wrinkles is diminished, noticeably, and darkly pigmented areas become lightened. There is some evidence that this alpha hydroxy acid also functions as an antioxidant, meaning it protects skin from future aging.

Another positive feature of glycolic acid is that by removing dead skin cells, it helps to unblock pores. For those who have oily skin, this usually translates into fewer breakouts, a welcomed bonus.

The tricky thing about glycolics is that it is hard to tell how strong a formula is. Some companies aren't straight about the percentages, and tiny amounts of glycolic won't give you results you can see.
