Babyface 70% Professional Glycolic Acid Chemical Peel
The Babyface Professional 70% Glycolic Peel quickly and efficiently removes dead skin cells that clog pores and make the skin’s surface dull. This is considered a Deep strength peel, and is recommended only for those who are experienced users of Glycolic peels, or professionals. pH 0.6
Note: You may find this to be more potent than other “at home” peels you’ve tried of the same strength, as it is a professional grade, and a true 70% concentration and unbuffered.
Glycolic peels are a more gentle form of chemical peel that primarily penetrates the most superficial layer of skin. They are not expected to cause much, of any, peeling. Glycolic peels are used to melt through the dead surface skin cells, which then promotes resurfacing. They remove blemishes, brighten skin, help to fade or eliminate sunspots, hide acne scars, diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and give the skin a healthy glow. Because they are mild, glycolic peels require less recovery time. Best results are achieved after performing multiple peels over a period of time.
Due to the mild nature of glycolic peels, recovery time is virtually nonexistent. Slight irritation or redness may occur to the skin, but it will not be enough to disrupt normal daily activities, and can usually be covered up with make-up starting the day after the peel has been performed.
Glycolic peels can cost anywhere between $150 to $300 per treatment at the Dermatologist or MedSpa, with repeated procedures recommended every six weeks.
Other things to Consider
Because microdermabrasion and chemical peels both deeply exfoliate the skin, they should not be used concurrently. It is recommended that non-professionals consult a physician before deciding to use a chemical peel. Always avoid sun after a chemical peel procedure, and use sunscreen on a daily basis.
