Description

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.

 

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
  • Scarring
  • Melasma
  • Sunspots
  • Age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Refresh dull or uneven skin tones

 

 

GLYCOLIC ACID MEDIUM STRENGTH 50%
Provides a medium strength peel using 50% glycolic acid. This medium depth glycolic acid face peel penetrates into the papillary dermis (the uppermost layer of the dermis, which sits right below the epidermis) and can be helpful for treating melasma, fine lines, wrinkles, and more prominent hyperpigmentation. This medium strength glycolic acid peel is recommended for new users with a combination to dry skin type 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 Medpeel Basic or 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.

 

After Your Peel

Generously apply Medpeel Hyaluronic Moisturizer Cream or Medpeel Hyaluronic Replenish Serum, on treated skin. It is also important that you use a broad spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 daily to protect treated skin during the healing process. To prolong results from your glycolic acid face peel treatments, we recommend using the Medpeel Glycolic 10% Daily Exfoliator between treatments.

 

DOWNTIME:

Mild - The Glycolic 50% 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.

DIRECTIONS: Please read complete instructions that arrive with your peel prior to applying peel. They are also available online here. Step 1: Wash the skin with a gel based cleanser and pat dry. Then apply pre-peel solution using a cotton ball to ensure the skin is properly cleansed. 

Step 2: Apply the Glycolic 50% peel to a gauze pad and smooth it over the desired area of the face, neck or decolletage. 

Step 3: Allow the peel to set for no more than 3-5 minutes during the first application. Observe the reaction and note the results. During future treatments, you may increase the peel time up to a full 20 minutes. If the skin feels uncomfortable, apply cool water gauze compresses to calm the sensation. 

Step 4: Remove the peel by applying the Neutralizer Solution directly over the applied area. Rinse the remaining solution with cool water. Gently pat the skin dry. 

Step 5. Apply anti-aging serum, we recommend MedPeel Hyaluronic Moisturizer Cream. Step 6: Follow with any moisturizer of your choice, we recommend MedPeel Hyaluronic Moisturizer Cream
