Aesthetic & Medical Skin Care

From ancient times, various extracts of fruits have been used to enhance the beauty of the skin.  Glycolic acid – derived from sugar cane and the most potent of a group of fruit extracts known as Alpha Hydroxies – had always been too irritating to be used routinely.

GLY DERM research has developed a form of Glycolic acid which has virtually eliminated these problems.  GLY DERM research has duplicated nature's methods, creating natural esters of Glycolic acid called "Glyco-Citrates".

The full benefits of Glycolic acid are released by the natural esterases of your skin without problem irritation and without sacrificing the results of Glycolic acid by neutralizing or buffering.

GLY DERM Glyco-Citrates are unique and can make your skin softer, more supple and more youthful without visible peeling and irritation.  GLY DERM can help to remedy the effects of sun exposure, and seems to help reduce large pores – making your skin appear more vigorous and youthful.

We have a full line of medically approved GLY DERM® and Dr. Renaud Skin Care Products.

Available in 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, and 70%.
Glyco Citrate facial applications are applied in your doctor's office under the supervision of a trained professional.  Within weeks, you will notice an improvement in the overall tone and texture of your skin and a reduction of the appearance of fine lines.

GLY DERM maintenance products are formulated in 5% regular and 10% "Plus" strengths. These products will help to maintain the results of the in-office facial applications and continue to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin. The products should be applied sparingly to a cleansed face before going to bed. They should not be used on the night before or the night of the in-office facial. Using the products below will help to get the skin ready for higher in-office concentrations of Glycolic Acid and will also, with diligent use, help to maintain the results of the facials. To receive the full benefits of Gly Derm, one or more of these products should be used as part of Gly Derm's Program. Almost every GLY DERM patient will experience a slight stinging sensation after applying the Cream, Lotion, Lotion Lite or Solution. It lasts less than a minute. They will also feel a slight dryness, which is actually an invisible peeling, for the first few weeks. This is the beneficial effect of the program, and can easily be relieved with GLY DERM moisturizers, usually Hydrotone.

Moisturizers are a vital and integral part of the GLY DERM Program and should be applied daily to seal in the skin's natural moisture and alleviate any dryness. GLY DERM moisturizers are available for all skin types. PH compatible with the healthful acid-mantle pH of the skin. Relieves dryness of the facial.
