Have No Fear, Glycolic Peels Are Here!
When I was first introduced to the idea of a chemical peel, I was overcome with fear. After thinking about why, I was able to trace it back to, “Sex And The City” episode where Samantha gets a chemical peel before an important book release event Carrie has. Wanting to attend the event to support her best friend, Samantha wore a massive black hat draped with black shear fabric to cover her hideously burnt face. I made a mental note that from that day forward, I would NEVER do that to myself.
Working here at CosMedics, I was able to see first-hand that this was a major exaggeration and if a peel is done properly under the right supervision, it can be an amazing solution to many skin problems ranging from pigmentation issues to severe acne and scarring. Glycolic peels help to unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and kill the bacteria that causes acne. Alberta Health care, depending on the severity and diagnosis, may even cover your peels here at CosMedics.
If you have dermatological issues, come in to our Edmonton clinic for a consultation and get educated about chemical peels and the benefits they can have for you.
