Dermaquest Glycolic Level 2 Resurfacer is for clients with thick rough textured skin with fine lines and wrinkles and ageing concerns. Glycolic acid is a natural constituent of sugar cane and is the smallest molecule in the ‘alpha hydroxy acid’ family. Being a natural substance, there is a minimal risk of complications from the procedure, which stimulates production of elastin and collagen in the skin. Treatment loosens the glue-like attachments of cellular cement that is characteristic of many skin conditions (such as ageing, acne, skin discolouration and course texture), and then exfoliates the dead surface area of the skin to produce a smoother, healthier, plumper and tighter complexion. Glycolic treatments address age-related skin problems and non-inflammatory acne, help to clear blocked pores, assist with the release of comedones, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and improve skin tone and texture – with the plant extract soothing inflammation and supporting the skin. The treatment also includes extraction to remove blackheads and blocked pores if needed, giving the skin a thorough deep cleanse to allow for a clearer, calmer complexion.
