Our patients at Spa Vitoria seek natural ingredients wherever possible. To that end, glycolic peels have grown more popular among our clientele. The ingredients of these peels are derived from natural products such as sugar cane, pineapple, beets, grapes, and cantaloupe. Glycolic peels, in the category known as superficial peels, improve the appearance of pigment changes in the skin, acne scars, mild sun damage, and fine wrinkles.
What is a glycolic peel?
Alpha hydroxy acids are the active ingredients used in superficial peels. They naturally occur as carboxylic acids. There are five fruit acids that are the most commonly used for peels: glycolic acid, citric acid, lactic acid, malic acid and tartaric acid. Glycolic acid comes from sugar cane juice.
A glycolic peel gently removes dead skin cells and stimulates new skin growth, leaving the skin with a bright, smooth glow.
What are the superficial peels offered at Spa Vitoria?
Our superficial peels are our Illuminize Peel, our Pumpkin Peel, our PCA Esthetique Hydrating Peel, our PCA Sensi Peel, and our PCA Exfoliating Peel.
How will I benefit from a glycolic peel at Spa Vitoria?
Glycolic peels lighten acne scars and prevent future breakouts. This type of peel also treats oily skin, enlarged pores, and skin pigmentation problems. Glycolic peels give patients younger-looking skin, as they reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.
