Nazirin Skin Clinic - Glycolic Peel

Glycolic Peel

Glycolic Peel is another acid peel treatment that is very popular as it’s suitable for most, even those without a specific concern and with minimal downtime. The whole process of our Glycolic Peel treatment is gentle, quick and easy and it will not leave you with burned, raw skin. Glycolic acid is is a natural substance derived from sugar cane. It’s beneficial in improving your skin condition tremendously in age-related problems, such as reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles, evening out skin tone, hydrating dry skin, and also improving blocked pores and acne.

The treatment exfoliates away all the dull, tough and dead layers of the skin and at the same time penetrate through that layer to renew and rejuvenate the skin cells underneath. Our Glycolic Peel treatment helps to make your skin appear fresher, plumper, more glowing thus allowing you to look younger!

PRE AND POST TREATMENT CARE

Pre-treatment:

  • Reveal all medical conditions and medications to the consultant and the therapist as certain conditions may negatively impact the procedure – such as pregnancy, history of cold sore, diabetes, history of skin keloids, and certain medications (i.e. Accutane).
  • If you get frequent cold sores, we will prescribe an anti-viral medication (Valtrex or Famvir).
  • Two weeks prior to your treatment, do not use any self-tanning lotions and/or tanning booths.
  • One week prior to your appointment, do not sunbathe. (Any patient arriving with a tan or sunburn may be rescheduled for the safety of your skin.)

Post-treatment:

  • Most patients who undergo these treatments have minimal redness for 1-12 hours.
  • Due to the nature of these treatments, you may experience mild flaking for a couple of days.
  • Your skin may feel tight and dry; apply moisturizer as frequently as needed. Unless recommended by your therapist, do not apply other medications except moisturizers and sunblock to your skin after the procedure, as they may irritate your skin.
  • Discontinue the use of Retin-A, Renova, or Differin for 1-3 days after your treatment.
  • Follow your appropriate home care regimen as directed by your therapist.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure and excessive heat. Always use sunscreen/sunblock for your protection.
  • Do not pick or pull at any loose skin, as this may cause scarring and or hyperpigmentation. Please be advised that you may expect a certain degree of discomfort, redness and/or irritation during and after the peel.
  • For additional relief and comfort after the treatment, you may apply cold compresses or topical anti-inflammatory creams (ie DermaCare Laser Treatment Recovery Complex), or take oral anti-inflammatory pills.
