At Infinity Laser Spa, we offer a variety of facials. Thus, you can choose the best and most suitable skincare for you. Our estheticians are here to help you. Many of our facial treatments can be combined with additional options for long-lasting results. We can help you maintain generally healthy skin or target specific cosmetic concerns. We offer a glycolic acid peel facial to smooth and refine your skin.
What is a glycolic peel facial treatment?
Glycolic acid is a popular choice for a chemical peel, which is basically a spa treatment that causes old, dead skin cells to peel away, revealing the healthy and smooth skin underneath. Glycolic acid is a natural acid that comes from sugar cane and fruit acids.
The glycolic acid peel facial is considered the gold standard of chemical peels. The molecular makeup of this acid is smaller than other chemicals used for peels or other skincare treatments, meaning it can penetrate the skin more deeply and exfoliate more thoroughly. This treatment can boost collagen production, reduce wrinkles, and lessen the appearance of age spots. It can even help treat and prevent acne by keeping the pores clear.
Who is this glycolic acid peel for?
Our glycolic acid peel facial is something you need to try! Exfoliation is great for the skin. In fact, it is a process that removes dead cells and other debris that clog up the surface of the skin, revealing newer and clearer skin underneath. Thus, exfoliation is a part of any healthy skincare routine. An exfoliating spa treatment is a great way to boost your skin’s health and brightness.
The glycolic acid peel facial uses a gentle, skin-safe acid called alpha-hydroxy acid to break through the gunk on a cellular level. This exfoliation treatment brightens and retexturizes your skin, which lessens the appearance of fine lines, improves your skin texture, and diminishes dark spots and scars. Infinity Laser Spa offers this glycolic acid peel facial in NYC to help you refresh and renew your skin.
What to expect from this facial treatment?
The glycolic acid peel is one of the gentlest and mildest chemical peels out there, and it’s great for people who have sensitive skin. To be on the safe side, however, make sure to discuss your concerns about your skin sensitivity with a facial technician before your appointment at Infinity Laser Spa.
Possible side effects of the glycolic peel may include:
- Temporary skin discoloration
- Mild skin irritation
- Skin rash
Since the glycolic acid we are using is mild, it won’t require any special aftercare. You might experience a slight redness within an hour-two after the treatment which will go away. You are also recommended to apply SPF protection for your face for at least 5-7 days after the procedure.
