WHAT IT 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 would be a good peel to start with for new users or the next step up from a Glycolic 30% peel. Glycolic acid is safe for all skin tones and is best for normal/dry/combination skin type.
WHAT IT IS FORMULATED TO DO:
Glycolic acid loosens the bonds between cells, allowing old, dead skin cells to help shed off of the skin on a cellular level. This will allow for new healthy cell growth.
FOR BEST RESULTS:
Before Your Peel
For best results, prep the skin for a week prior to peel application with a daily exfoliator such as Glycolic 10% Daily Exfoliator. We strongly recommend conducting a patch test 3 days before applying a peel to ensure no negative or unusual reactions occur.
After Your Peel
Generously apply Daily Collagen Complex or Hyaluronic Replenish Serum as needed for tight, dry skin. Use a minimum of broad spectrum SPF 30 every day to protect healing skin. Begin using a daily exfoliator in between peels for long lasting results.
Mild - The Glycolic 30% - 70% peel has little to no downtime, you may see some mild flaking but typically not. The skin may be a bit pink and tight for a few hours following the peel. You can resume to normal exfoliation after one week.
