Why Glytone Chemical Peel?
The skin around your eyes is delicate, so be gentle! Optometrists aren’t just trying to make a sale when they remind you to wear your sunglasses. The skin around your eyes is very delicate. It is thinner than the skin on the rest of your body. In fact, it is up to ten times thinner than the skin on the rest of your face! Because of this, it tends to show age faster.
If nobody has told you this yet, then let us be the first. Anytime you are applying moisturizer or any topical treatment to your eye area, use your ring finger! Your ring finger is the weakest finger. It does not have independent ligaments like your other fingers. You do not want to be rough when dealing with the tender skin around your eyes. Over time, not treating that skin delicately and protecting it with sunglasses can lead to sun damage and signs of aging.
Glytone Eye Peel
This fantastic eye peel can help undo any damage that has already occurred around your eyes. It is applied to your eyelid, and directly beneath the lower lashes of your eye. It consists of 3.75% TCA (trichloroacetic acid) and 15% lactic acid. These acids can target pigment which helps reduce the appearance of uneven pigmentation and sun damage. The Glytone eye peel can also reduce fine lines. These combined effects will take years off your eye area, and that takes years off you!
Your hands – so busy, so delicate!
Your hands are another area of your body that have thinner skin than other areas. Your skin thins as you age. Because of their already thin skin, your hands tend to show this age quicker than some other parts of your body.
Hands sustain a great deal of sun damage as they are always exposed, unlike your stomach and back. Additionally, people often don’t think of applying sunscreen to their hands which would be very beneficial in fighting the appearance of aging, as well as the possibility of skin cancer.
Your hands can give your age away quite easily. You may have taken great care of your facial skin, even having some anti-aging treatments such as fillers, but one glance at your hands can instantly inform someone that your face and hands are telling two different stories. Your hands gave you away!
Glytone Hand Peel
The Glytone hand peel consists of 20% TCA, 10% lactic acid, and 0.5% kojic acid. This hand peel can help reduce the signs of aging by lightening age spots. The kojic acid aids this by blocking the formation of tyrosine which in turn stops the production of melanin. Melanin is what gives your skin pigmentation. Less melanin equals fewer or lighter age spots. If you are interested in further decreasing the aged look of your hands, we also offer fillers, such as Radiesse, that can be used to plump your hands giving them a more youthful appearance.
The Glytone hand peel can also be used on the face and chest. If you have noticed discoloration, age spots, or fine lines on your face or chest (decolletage), then you may wish to have these areas treated, as well.
What can you expect from Glytone chemical peels?
You will have no downtime as far as your activity level. You will be able to resume your normal activities upon leaving our beautiful med spa. You can expect some flaking or peeling. This may sound a bit unappealing, but remember two things: 1) the results will be worth it, and 2) this is Florida, and lots of people are peeling! Their peeling may be a result of a sunburn, but yours will yield youthful results!
