WHAT IT IS:
The glycolic peel is an exfoliator derived from sugarcane, which safely removes the outer layer of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin, the MedPeel Glycolic Acid peel helps bring fresh new skin to the surface. This is beneficial for those who are looking for ingredients that help with anti-aging, such as sun spots or age spots and help those with acne-prone and blackhead-prone skin.
This 70% deep strength peel generally provides visible peeling and flaking. It should only be used by experienced peel users and is not recommended for for first-time peel users. Users should have successfully tolerated/completed a lower-level peel before graduating to a deep level. This peel provides a more aggressive treatment for those with stubborn skin concerns. Due to the increased risk of hyperpigmentation, this strength is not recommended for darker skin tones (Fitzpatrick IV, V, VI)
Looking for a way to reveal younger, smoother and more radiant skin? Glycolic acid face peels may be your answer!
Glycolic Acid, also known as Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), is a chemical exfoliant originally sourced from sugarcane and has been used for beautification for centuries by ancient civilizations. When incorporated in glycolic acid face peels, this anti-aging exfoliant is able to dissolve the bonds between dead skin cells so they can be easily wiped away and allow for new, healthy cell growth.
When used regularly, glycolic acid face peels effectively combat common skin issues such as:
- Adult acne (non-oily skin)
- Clogged pores and blackheads
- Age spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Refresh dull or uneven skin tones
GLYCOLIC ACID DEEP STRENGTH 70%
Provides a deep strength peel using 70% glycolic acid. This deep depth glycolic acid face peel can penetrate into the reticular dermis (the lower level of the dermis, below the papillary dermis) and is ideal for treating acne scars, deep wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and for overall skin rejuvenation. This deep strength glycolic acid peel is recommended for experienced peelers with combination to dry skin types and is suitable for all skin tones.
WHAT IT IS FORMULATED TO DO:
Glycolic acid loosens the bonds between cells, allowing old, dead skin cells to shed off of the skin on a cellular level. This will allow for new healthy cell growth.
FOR BEST RESULTS:
To achieve the best results, we recommend using our Deluxe Glycolic Acid Peel Kits which contain everything you’ll need to achieve optimal results. In addition, we recommend the following glycolic acid face peel guidelines:
Before Your Peel
For best results, prep the skin for a week prior to peel application with a daily exfoliator such as our Medpeel Glycolic 10% Daily Exfoliator. We, also, strongly recommend conducting a patch test 3 days before applying a glycolic acid face peel to ensure no negative or unusual reactions occur.
Finally, the Peel Prep helps remove oil, dirt and impurities from the skin to ensure a more effective and even penetration of the chemical peel.
Simply, sweep over the skin and do not rinse off. Wait 30 seconds to 1 minute before applying the peel
After Your Peel
After applying the peel, use the Neutralizer Solution Spray to help safely balance the pH of the skin by neutralizing the acid and stopping the
exfoliation process. To prolong results from your glycolic acid face peel treatments, we recommend using the Medpeel Glycolic 10% Daily Exfoliator between treatments.
Moderate - The 70% Glycolic Chemical Peel will have a moderate downtime and you will be able to resume normal exfoliation after 2 weeks.
Do not reapply the peel until at least 3-4 weeks from initial application.
