GlyDerm is a professional-grade chemical peel solution made with 20-70% glycolic acid, depending on the strength of the peel used. The GlyDerm formula is gentler on the skin than other glycolic acid peels, while still providing effective results that leave your skin looking smoother, tighter, and brighter.
GlyDerm is safe for all skin types and tones and can help with:
GlyDerm products are free from fragrances, terpenes, and other known allergens and are noncomedogenic so they won’t clog your pores.
When your aesthetician applies the GlyDerm solution to your skin, you might experience a mild burning, tingling, or itching sensation. As the solution soaks into your skin, it begins a mild exfoliation process that removes the dry, dull, and damaged surface layers of your skin.
For best results, your aesthetician recommends a series of six peels, each spaced two weeks apart. This allows for gentle exfoliation without the side effects and discomfort of other types of peels.
The peel can be combined with other at-home GlyDerm products to enhance the effects while moisturizing your skin. Your aesthetician explains when and how to use each product after your peel. You can continue to use GlyDerm products to maintain your results after your series of peels is completed.
After your peel, you may experience some redness or tightness in your skin for 3-72 hours and should avoid sun exposure for three hours after your session. Over the next five days, your skin can peel slightly or flake off when you wash your face. Since GlyDerm is gentler than other types of peels, you might not experience any peeling or flaking.
Once the exfoliation process has finished, you see brighter, smoother, and tighter skin. With each subsequent peel, you can notice an improvement in your skin week-to-week. Your aesthetician can show you before-and-after sample images during your consultation so you know what to expect from your GlyDerm peel.
