Glycolic acid is a colorless and odorless alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA). It’s a chemical exfoliator that disrupts the connections between dead skin cells, allowing them to be easily wiped away and revealing smoother, fresher skin beneath.
The glycolic acid peel smoothes and softens the skin’s surface by eliminating dead skin cells and debris, allowing products to penetrate more easily and do their job better. To improve the complexion, Glycolic Peel chemically exfoliated a thin layer of dead cells. This treatment can be used to minimize the appearance of dark spots and restore the skin’s overall vibrancy.Â
Using glycolic acid, it is possible to exfoliate the skin’s layers more deeply and so stimulate collagen formation. In some situations, glycolic acid for hyperpigmentation can even help reduce the appearance of dark spots as well as large pores and control acne.
