Y’all know I have been more obsessed than I have ever been with skincare… I’ve shared a few post with you guys regarding my at home skincare routine. Today we are taking it a step further with what you can be doing in addition to that with a skincare specialist.
Recently I got my first ever facial peel (I can’t believe I waited this long) from Glytone and I am hooked. I had of course always heard of facial peels but I was honestly a little overwhelmed/scared… like hello you hear the word ‘peel’ and I’m automatically like “cool, I’m going to be shedding like a snake for days and have no human contact” BUT it was actually the complete opposite. I received my Glytone facial peel treatment at Legacy Dermatology Center (which was SO nice) which does all their chemical peels with the Glytone line. My doctor, Andrea met with me and we discussed my skincare concerns as well as her opinion and decided on a peel that best fit my skin.
There are many different types of peels but we were targeting redness/inflammation (which is hereditary for me, thanks mom! haha), and also a peel that would tighten + make my skin glow. We ended up going with the Mandelic Acid 40 peel which was great because there is basically no downtime or hiding out afterward. In fact, I didn’t have any visible signs after the peel- but I still ditched the makeup for the next two days so my skin could breathe! From start to finish the peel lasted about 15 minutes (IF that), it was SO quick! No lasers, machines, or anything like that- your Dr will administer the entire peel and you will be in and out of there.
Post peel like I mentioned I basically had no down time. I had a few dry spots but nothing super noticeable- and those went away in about two days. The Glytone peels are a little different than a traditional peel because they work under the skin- which is one of the reasons why your skin doesn’t peel off (like I was afraid of)! I am about a week out now and my skin is noticeably smoother and minimal redness, which is perfect timing as I am headed to Nashville to celebrate my birthday. I definitely plan on continuing to get Glytone peels so I can really see the full effects. Keep in mind not all med spas and dermatology offices offer these service so check out a location hear you here.
Till next time babes!
