There are times in which we want to stand solidly in the present moment and take in everything we can. Other times make us want to peel away, to drift off to a better place or time as quickly as possible. Our skin behaves in just such a manner. Old skin cells whose time has come often linger in the present too long. Old skin cells are dull. They have no vibrancy. They barely have any life to them at all. Because we have the general idea that the skin renews itself about every month, we might assume that this process occurs without any difficulty. In truth, skin cells don’t always slough off the way they should. This is why we sometimes need to peel away in the literal sense. Here, we discuss our Glytone Enerpeel treatment and what it can do for you.
The Glytone Enerpeel is an in-office chemical peel procedure that accelerates cellular turnover to slow or reduce the signs of aging. The unique acid solution applied during this procedure produces dramatic results without causing damage to the epidermis or incurring lengthy downtime. This peel is versatile at addressing the various cosmetic concerns that develop with age, including discoloration and sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and rough texture. The treatment process takes less than half an hour. Patients are typically in and out in 30 to 45 minutes. No anesthetic is necessary, nor any downtime.
Chemical peels represent a significant treatment option because they can be tailored to varying skin tones and types. The Glytone Enerpeel is suitable even for people who are prone to mild scarring and acne breakouts. Dr. Bucay performs a thorough consultation and skin assessment with each patient to ensure that the correct chemical peel formulation is used to achieve the best results. Sometimes, a series of chemical peels is needed to address certain concerns. Many people use chemical peels to manage the normal signs of aging by scheduling them as often as every 4 to 6 weeks. Because this treatment is so gentle, it makes a fine addition to your normal skincare routine.
