My first glycolic acid peel

Chemical or acid peels are relatively fast treatments.

You can be in and out well within an hour and technically there’s no recovery-time...
Unless of course you’re red and blotchy and you prefer to stay in confinement until the worst of it has worn off.

But that doesn’t happen with a small concentration. Though glycolic acid peels can be as high as 70% plus, Marie treated my skin with just a 20% concentrate of Neostrata Glycolic peel for 3-4 minutes.

"With any peels especially Glycolic peels the rule is to always start by the lowest concentration (20%) and build it up to 35%, 50%, 70% and subsequently "high potency peel" if needed." Marie informs.

"The 20% Glycolic is used as an introduction of the acid on the skin and therefore the skin can build its tolerance to Glycolic Acid (GA) peel. Ideally I build the time and strength of the peel on every session."

I lay on the dentist chair fully clothed and Marie began by carefully cleansing my face. I starred at the ceiling panicking.

Though glycolic acid is derived for sugar cane and could therefore be viewed as a natural product its other uses include rust removal and industrial degreasing!
