WHAT IT IS:
An exfoliator derived from sugarcane, which safely removes the outer layer of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin, the MedPeel Glycolic Acid 50% peel helps bring fresh new skin to the surface. This is beneficial for those who are looking for ingredients that help with anti-aging, such as sun spots or age spots and help those with acne-prone and blackhead-prone skin. This would be a good peel to start with for new users or the next step up from a Glycolic 30% peel. Glycolic acid is safe for all skin tones and is best for normal/dry/combination skin type.
WHAT IT IS FORMULATED TO DO:
Glycolic acid loosens the bonds between cells, allowing old, dead skin cells to shed off of the skin on a cellular level. This will allow for new healthy cell growth.
FOR BEST RESULTS:
Before Your Peel
For best results, prep the skin for a week prior to peel application with a daily exfoliator such as Glycolic 10% Daily Exfoliator. We strongly recommend conducting a patch test 3 days before applying a peel to ensure no negative or unusual reactions occur.
After Your Peel
Generously apply Daily Collagen Complex, Hyaluronic Serum or Squalane as needed for tight, dry skin. Use a minimum of broad spectrum SPF 30 every day to protect healing skin. Begin using a daily exfoliator in between peels for long lasting results.
Mild - The Glycolic 50% peel has little to no downtime, you may see some mild flaking but typically not. The skin may be a bit pink and tight for a few hours following the peel. You can resume to normal exfoliation after one week.
