Our face is a reflection of our thoughts, our feelings, and our health. Therefore, facial skin should be ideal.
One of the ways to achieve stunningly healthy facial skin is to undergo a peeling procedure. It is aimed at exfoliating the upper horny layer of the skin, thereby improving its appearance.
In addition to its rejuvenating action, peels are used for therapeutic purposes, for example, for acne and its consequences (enlarged pores, scars), hyperpigmentation, hyperkeratosis, and other problems that are usually observed at a young age.
Some of the most popular and effective peels today are peels with AHA acids, which are obtained from various fruits. These include apple, grape, lemon, milk, and glycolic acids. AHA acids do not have a damaging effect on the epidermis; they break intercellular bonds in deeper layers, thus accelerating the processes of exfoliation and renewal.
Glycolic acid has become the most widely used due to its broad application. Thanks to the small molecule size, it easily penetrates the horny layer, reaches the lower layers of the epidermis, and even passes through the basal membrane into the dermis, where it stimulates the synthesis of collagen and glycosaminoglycans.
It has been proven that glycolic acid has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Glycolic peels yield excellent results in correcting surface cosmetic problems and preventing aging. A significant advantage of glycolic acid peels is that they are easily tolerated, require no recovery period, and do not disrupt the usual lifestyle of patients.
