Burnaby & Vancouver Glycolic Peels

By: The Heights Laser Centre  09-12-2011

Heights Laser can help solve your acne problems with Lower Mainland, Burnaby, and Vancouver glycolic peels that work.

How Glycolic Peel Treatments Work

Glycolic peel treatments provide skin care that focuses on resurfacing and renewing the skin. Glycolic peels safely remove a micro thin top layer of skin and are used to treat acne prone skin, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and discoloration. A glycolic treatment will increase circulation to the skin, loosen oil and dirt that builds up in the pores, minimize the appearance of acne and stimulate the production of collagen. A peel can help bring back a healthy and revitalized glow to your skin and it can improve the texture and firmness of your skin. These peels are excellent at exfoliating the skin and assists with skin rehydration.

What to Expect with Glycolic Peel Treatments

Glycolic peels are easily done, typically last 15 minutes, and require no down time. There may be a slight stinging sensation when the glycolic peel is applied. Individuals will often notice that their skin is smoother and has a better tone even after one treatment, but best results are seen after a series of treatments three to four weeks apart. For optimum results, glycolic treatments must be followed with appropriate home skincare.
