Glycolic acid is an Alpha Hydroxyacid derived from the sugar cane. Its small molecular size facilitates the faster and deeper penetration through the skin surface, improving results.
md:peel glycolic diminishes corneocyte adhesion at the lower levels of stratum corneum and promotes cellular mitosis, accelerating cellular renovation and the penetration of topical agents.
This exfoliating effect removes the uneven layer of dead skin cells resulting in a smoother and uniform skin texture. This process helps decrease active acne, and helps lighten hyperpigmented areas, facilitating the removal of melanized keratinocytes through desquamation.
It directly stimulates fibroblasts activity increasing the biosynthesis of collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans, leading to the regeneration of new tissues. With antioxidant and regenerating properties, md:peel glycolic reduces the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines increasing hydration.
