Serum formulated with a high concentration of glycolic acid that favors the reduction of marks and regulation of sebaceous secretion in oily and / or acne-prone skin. Results in smoother, smoother and more even skin.
Recommended in pre-peeling treatments with glycolic acid, its use provides a smoother skin without shine. It is normal to feel a slight stinging in the first applications, in case of continued irritation the application should be suspended.
Products based on alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) are widely used in the battle against old age as they promote skin hydration and stimulate collagen and elastin production. Of these, Lactic Acid and Glycolic Acid are the most widely used to facilitate the peeling of dead cells and give the skin a rosy and youthful appearance.
Glycolic acid is the alpha hydroxy acid with the smallest molecule, which allows it to act very effectively in cosmetic treatments
In the formulation of products with glycolic acid, two very important factors must be taken into account and the efficacy of the products will depend on their regulation: the acid concentration and the pH.
The formulations are presented in different increasing concentrations of the acid, both in cream and gel form. The pH is adjusted around 4 for maximum effectiveness and to minimize skin irritation.
The mechanisms by which AHAs increase skin hydration and reduce wrinkles are based on the following:
- They remove dead cells from the stratum corneum.
- They favor the hydration of the epidermis due to their moisturizing properties.
- They stimulate the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans and other intercellular substances with the ability to retain water at the dermal level.
- They promote the formation of new collagen in the papillary dermis and improve the elastic fibers of the reticular dermis.
