M.D. Forte Glycolic Acid Peels
Glycolic acid treats the epidermis (the upper layers of the skin), by promoting normal shedding, and stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin. Following treatment, this layer becomes more uniform, resulting in a smoother skin texture. As it penetrates the deeper layers of the epidermis, the overall appearance of the skin is improved. Age spots, hyperpigmentation, festoons and fine lines under the eyes are softened. Large pores are reduced, blackheads disappear, and acne treatment is enhanced. Increased blood flow through the skin produces a healthy glow.

Treatments increase circulation, renew and soften skin, creating a discernibly smoother texture and tone.
