Glycolic Acid has long been a first line product of the finest spas and Dermatology offices for improving the skin. For those of you who have heard the term 'Lunch Time Peel', this is the chemical used for it, and it is used by many if not most of Hollywood's most famous faces (women AND men!) and the Rodeo Drive clientele who can afford the best that money can buy. These peels will cost from $75.00 - $500.00 PER PEEL at your Dermatologist's office or your local high end spa. Now you can do these peels at home safely and with fantastic results. Each bottle of our 20% Glycolic Acid Peel will yield approximately 10 peels done at 2 week intervals, a potential savings of $733.00-$5000.00! This is an ideal peel for beginning peelers. After peeling your skin will be feel softer, look smoother, with improved texture and tone and reduced (sun damage). Those are the differences on the surface of your skin. With a peel of this strength, a full course of peels (8-10 peels) are needed to see optimal results.
This is a 30ml (1fl oz) bottle of 20% Glycolic peeling solution, medical quality, pH 2 in amber glass to preserve the activity of the product. Along with the peel you will receive a detailed instruction manual and a free sample of our best selling Microdermabrasion Crystals (one per shipment). This is enough peel solution for approximately 10 full face peels.
Chemical peels are versatile tools that are used to resurface the upper layers of your skin by loosening the bonds between the dead skin cells that dull your skin, while stimulating the collagen beneath the skin to form and align, which in turn plumps up the fine lines and scars from below the surface. They have been around since Cleopatra bathed in milk (contains lactic acid!) to make her skin smooth. Fortunately, science has made a lot of progress since then and the chemical peels available now are sophisticated and effective.
Peels vary in strength and provide different benefits.
Glycolic Acid is a naturally occurring chemical belonging to the Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) family. Derived from sugar cane, this important AHA is the smallest of the fruit acids and is able to penetrate the skin, allowing it to effectively dissolve the 'glue' that holds dead cells on the surface of the skin. The dead skin cells are what cause a dull, uneven skin tone, and the blocking of pores leading to blackheads and acne. This dissolving action of the Glycolic Acid allows the dead cells to slough off, leaving behind a smoother skin surface with clear pores. This also helps stimulate collagen formation under the skins surface which helps plump up the skin from beneath, smoothing out fine surface wrinkles and superficial scars.
Our 20% Glycolic Acid Peel is a mild Glycolic acid peel and is suitable for all skin types and both beginning and experienced peelers who would like to maintain their results from stronger peels. There may be some redness right after the peel, but generally there is not much if any actual peeling (hence the name Lunch Time Peel, you can go right back to work after you have it done). The 20% is very safe when used as directed, but is a strong, professional strength peel (pH 2) and should be used only as directed.
As with all products, a patch test is recommended to see how your skin reacts to the peel.
This peel is very easy to use, you simply cleanse, apply, time it, neutralize and rinse. We include very clear instructions on how to use this peel
After you have applied the peel, your skin may be red, this is normal and will fade quickly. You may wear makeup to tone in down if you would like. About 2 days after the peel your skin may start to flake and peel slightly. You can encourage peeling by using warm compresses and taking hot showers, but you cannot pick at the skin! It must come off when it is ready to, not when you are ready for it to! By peeling off the skin you risk scarring by exposing skin that is not ready for the world yet, so allow the skin to shed on its own.
As with all exfoliating products, the use of sunscreen is essential to obtaining the results you are looking for. If you are not able to commit to using a sunscreen, this is not the treatment you should choose as you will just damage your skin all over again!
