The Glycolic Facial

Beaty Glycolic Facials

Medical-grade skincare and spa-like rejuvenation can go hand in hand. Our Glycolic Facial combines relaxation with effective skin maintenance. It’s perfect for pre-conditioning the skin before procedures or achieving a beautiful glow before any event.

The 40% glycolic gel exfoliator is combined with masks to individualize the treatment based on the specific needs of our patients.  For advanced results and targeted outcomes, a series of glycolic treatments are recommended or suggested in combination with other treatments such as Pixel8 radiofrequency microneedling.

What Is a Glycolic Facial?

A glycolic facial, often considered a type of chemical peel, works by penetrating the skin on a cellular level to break down dead cells. This process helps remove dirt and dead skin from the surface, unveiling the healthier, brighter-looking skin underneath.
The glycolic acid in these facials has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that rejuvenate the skin, reduce brown sunspots, and promote a more even skin tone. By unclogging pores, glycolic facials can also help treat mild acne, superficial scars, and blackheads.

These treatments are effective in reducing hyperpigmentation, including melasma, sunspots, and acne scars. Post-treatment, your skin should look brighter and more refreshed.

Glycolic acid is renowned for its anti-aging benefits. Regular treatments boost collagen and elastin production, helping to reduce the appearance of pores, wrinkles, and fine lines over time.

What Is Involved in the Glycolic Facial Procedure?

The procedure begins with a thorough cleansing of your face. Then, the glycolic gel is applied to your skin and left to penetrate the skin layers before being removed. Following the gel application, anti-oxidative and rejuvenating agents are layered onto the skin to stimulate and calm it.

What Should I Expect After Glycolic Treatment?

Glycolic acid increases the skin's sensitivity to the sun temporarily, so it's important to avoid sun exposure and to wear effective protection whenever you are going outside. Patients should wear at least an SPF 30 daily and consider investing in additional coverings, such as hats or sunglasses.

Some skin sloughing may occur a few days after the treatment, depending on the acid concentration used. Mild peels may result in little to no peeling, whereas stronger concentrations may result in more prominent redness and peeling. The skin rejuvenating results of the treatment will take a few days to become apparent, at which point patients can enjoy their brighter, smoother, more youthful complexion. For patients planning to undergo a glycolic peel prior to an event, it is important to factor in the recovery time to ensure an optimal result.
