I wanted to share a report that I conducted while still in school. The treatment series includes 4 “chemical peels”with Glycol 10%, (barely qualifies as a peel, great for maintenance) bi weekly applications. You will learn what it is and the improvements you can achieve. Glycol is found is many Anti Aging skincare products.
Glycolic exfoliation gel 10%
In this report I will discuss the 6 week treatment series done on Malia. I will discuss glycolic acid, Malia’s skin type genetically, her skin condition, treatment benefits, extrinsic factors, and the treatments with achieved results.
Glycol Acid, an AHA derived from the sugar cane plant promotes a more youthful appearance and has powerful anti aging benefits. Glycolic Acid reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It evens out discoloration and blotchiness while leaving an overall smoother texture.
Malia’s skin type genetically is combination skin. Meaning she has both oily and dry areas. Her T Zone has more oil production. The T Zone areas include the forehead, nose and chin. Her skin requires regular deep cleansing and exfoliation. Skin Condition The pores on her nose have several comedones/blackheads. She has adult acne on the chin and jawline which may be linked to hormonal changes. Her acne appears to be in grade 2. There are closed comedones, open comedones, and more papules than pustules.
Improve the appearance and evenness of the skin Clear the skin of acne Smooth the texture of the skin Reduce fine line and wrinkles Extrinsic Factors After my client consultation with Malia, I came to the conclusion that the following extrinsic factors influenced her skin condition. Such factors include; stress, lifestyle, poor maintenance/home care, and improper nutrition. I have educated my client on the importance of an at home care regimen, consistency, proper nutrition and hydration.
