What Are The Benefits of a Glycolic Peel?

There are so many benefits to using glycolic peels. As stated before, it is safe for all skin types which is probably one of the greatest benefits. Here are our favorite 5 benefits of using glycolic peels.

Glycolic peels are very effective at shrinking the pores of your skin. Pores get enlarged when clogged with dirt and bacteria. This creates unsightly blackheads. Glycolic peels are able to seep into the epidermis to remove the dirt and bacteria. Once the dirt is removed, the pores shrink back to the normal size.

 1. Glycolic peels are an excellent treatment for acne and acne scarring. This is huge because we know that acne is a very common problem that millions of people suffer with during their lifetime. Glycolic peels can help control acne breakouts and help rid you of the unfortunate scars that acne often leaves behind.

2. Glycolic peels reduce the effects of sun damage. These peels help to shed the affected skin layer and reveal a fresh layer of undamaged skin. Glycolic therapy also stimulates the rebuilding of skin cells to bring about a brighter complexion.

3. Glycolic peels are anti-aging. Glycolic acid treatments help to strengthen deep layers of the skin which will soften the lines on your face and give a tighter/firmer appearance. Reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging is definitely a huge benefit of the glycolic peels.

4. Glycolic peels stimulate collagen production. Collagen is important in maintaining elasticity, smoothness, and in keeping skin soft and healthy-looking. Increased collagen production is always a terrific benefit!

These are just five of the many benefits of glycolic peels. We are sure that you will benefit from this treatment that is non-invasive and involves no downtime from your busy schedule.
