Glycolic treatment is, as the name suggests, a treatment that features glycolic acid as its main active ingredient. Derived from cane sugar, glycolic acid forms part of a group of active compounds known as alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA). As the smallest molecules within this particular group, our bodies are able to better absorb and utilise glycolic acid for maximum effect.
At Blue Tree Clinics, our glycolic treatment in Dubai is a popular choice for treating a wide range of skin complaints including, but not limited to:
- Fine lines
- Oily skin
Due to its increasing popularity, glycolic treatment is most commonly used in chemical peels.
How does our glycolic treatment in Dubai work?
Before we get into the details of glycolic treatment in Dubai, it’s worth noting that this isn’t a replacement for a facelift. Should this option be better suited, our specialists will recommend this instead of a glycolic treatment.
Glycolic acid, in a nutshell, reacts with the top layer of skin and causes a breakdown to occur in the glue that holds together the older, dryer skin on the surface. This is comprised of sebum and other substances which bind cells together. Glycolic acid dissolves these constituents which allow the dead cells to be sloughed off entirely.
Once the process is completed, the patient is left with younger, healthier looking skin that is free from any damage. The process helps to remove any barriers created by the formation of dead cells and grim, thereby, allowing other products to work more effectively. As such, glycolic treatment in Dubai is ideal for many different scenarios such as clearing up pores and blackheads and providing an even exfoliation of the skin.
If you’re interested in a glycolic treatment Dubai residents simply can’t stop talking about, pick up the phone and give Blue Tree Clinics a call. We’ll arrange a time for you to sit with our skin specialist for a face-to-face consultation which will involve an assessment of your skin type, needs and medical history. A treatment plan will be devised and a schedule created to fit your particular requirements.
At the start of your treatment, the peel will be applied as a light layer and left for a pre-determined amount of time. The amount of time will depend on various factors including the type of peel, skin type, and reasons for having the peel. The procedure will be closely monitored by our specialist from start-to-finish, and they will determine the best time to remove the peel to ensure the best results.
Once the peel is removed, your treatment session will be concluded – it’s that simple. There is virtually no recovery time so you can be back at work the same day. Plus, the procedure is practically painless – some discomfort may be experienced, and we can prescribe medication to counter this should this be necessary.
Side effects should be largely minimal though patients can expect a minor burning sensation and some redness to occur immediately following the procedure. This should subside quickly without any intervention. Glycolic acid can also make your skin more sensitive to sunlight – as a result; you should limit your exposure where possible and use a sunscreen where exposure is unavoidable.
