Dr Murad was the first to put glycolic acid into skincare products. He developed glycolic acid peels in order to gradually improve the appearance and texture of skin without irritation and lifestyle disruption.
Glycolic acid peels minimize the appearance of surface lines, smooth out rough skin texture, aid in clearing congestion and help to fade hyper-pigmentation. Professional treatments can be accompanied by Dr Murad skin care products, used at home, pre and post treatment, and are designed to maximize results.
How Does Glycolic Acid Work?
Glycolic acid is an exfoliant. It works by seeping into the more superficial layers of the skin and destroying the attachments that hold the dead skin cells together. These dead skin cells are then washed off.
How Often Should I Use Glycolic Acid?
As glycolic acid is considered a chemical peel, it should not be applied too frequently in a short span of time. The frequency with which you apply the product will depend on the strength.
What Are the Aesthetic Effects of Glycolic Acid?
Glycolic acids are known to create a smoother skin surface, which provides a more youthful appearance. It can also "brighten" the skin.
Do Glycolic Acid Peels Burn or Hurt?
Very minimal discomfort is felt during a glycolic peel. Most clients feel just a slight tingle.
