Gly Derm

Gly Derm offers a complete line of products for all your skin care needs. Gly Derm uses a unique form of Glycolic acid that actually enhances the beautifying benefits of Glycolic acid and decreases the irritation. Glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane and has more beautifying effects on the skin than any other fruit acid. Normally, Glycolic acid is a little to irritating to be used daily, but Gly Derm has solved that problem. Gly Derm Glycolics help the skin retain more moisture making skin Smoother, Healthier, and Younger-looking. Many Glycolic acid products simply can't do what they promise. And most over-the-counter brands have been neutralized or buffered. If you want the most effective Glycolic acid formulations available, rely on the power of physician-strength Gly Derm.

Gly Derm products have been clinically tested by board certified dermatologists and found to be hypo-allergenic and free of harmful agents. In fact, they're the preferred Glycolic formulations of many leading university Dermatology and Plastic Surgery centers. So take the next step. discover that you can actually spend less time trying to make your skin look better and more time enjoying your better-looking skin. That's the real beauty of Gly Derm.

Gly Derm
Alpha Hydroxy / Glycolics
Treatment Program

Glycolic acid is a type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid which is derived from natural fruits and sugar cane. Research has shown that repeated applications of alpha hydroxy acids to the skin of the face can help reduce many of the effects of sun induced aging such as fine lines, pigment spots and rougher scaly blemishes. Furthermore, with continued use, there is an improvement in the overall texture and smoothness of the skin.

There are minimal side effects. The treatments are safe and reliable with very predictable results. They do not cause dryness and sun sensitivity and may also be used in conjunction with Retin-A and prescription skin lightening creams.

The glycolic acid treatment program consists of two parts: the first phase is a skin care regimen which entails the twice daily use of a glycolic acid cleanser followed by a moisturizing cream or lotion which also contains esterified glycolic acid. It is the esterified formulation which makes these products especially effective and the reason they are only dispensed through physicians. The glycolic acid cleansers and creams should be used for several weeks before starting the second phase of treatment, the glycolic acid facial.

Six glycolic acid treatment facials are generally provided over a period of 6 - 12 weeks. These treatments employ the use of higher concentrations of glycolic acid which are applied here in the office by our trained medical assistants. A fruit based solution is applied to your face and left on for a few minutes. During the treatment facial, you will experience tingling or stinging but not pain. After a specified amount of time, the solution is rinsed off the face. A mild tingling may persist for an hour or so after the facial is completed. After three hours, you may resume normal skin care such as moisturizer or water based makeup.

Depending on the result of your fruit based glycolic acid facial, the concentrations and time of application are adjusted for subsequent treatments. The immediate result is mild pinkness which may last a about a day, as if you had spent the day sailing or skiing.

Improvements in fine lines, color and texture are cumulative and can often be appreciated after just a few treatments.

We recommend an initial series of six treatment facials followed by continued use of the cleanser, maintenance and moisturizing lotions. All patients will by then note smoothing and improved texture of their skin and they should start to notice lightening of any brown spots. Improvement is then maintained through the continued use of the Gly Derm products. Those patients looking for even greater improvements may continue the Gly Derm facials on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. Ultimately it is the patient who decides when the desired cosmetic result is satisfactory.

The initial treatment package consists of three products (gentle cleanser, daytime moisturizer, night-time glycolic acid maintenance product) and six peels.

Sometimes the best information comes directly from the people who have been through the treatment. Most of our office staff has been treated and would be happy to share their experiences. Please feel free to chat with them whenever you are in the office.

Should you have additional questions regarding our program and/or wish to schedule treatments, please call and speak to one of our office staff who are always available during regular office hours.

The glycolic acid treatment program consists of two parts: the first phase is a skin care regimen which entails the twice daily use of a glycolic acid cleanser followed by a moisturizer or evening maintenance product which also contains esterified glycolic acid. It is the esterified formulation which makes these products especially effective and the reason they are only dispensed through physicians.

The Gly Derm FACIAL

Gly Derm offers a full range of facial applicators in 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, or 70% concentrations. Glyco Citrate facial applicators are applied in your physician's office under the supervision of a trained specialist.

Improvements in fine lines, color and texture are cumulative and can often be appreciated after just a few treatments. With repeated applications, Gly Derm facials will improve the tone and texture of the skin and clean out pores. Glycolic acid is a type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid which is derived from natural fruits and sugar cane. Research has shown that repeated applications of alpha hydroxy acids to the skin of the face can help reduce many of the effects of sun induced aging such as fine lines, pigment spots and rougher scaly blemishes.

There are minimal side effects. The treatments are safe and reliable with very predictable results. They do not cause dryness and sun sensitivity and may also be used in conjunction with Retin-a and prescription bleaching creams. We also have many reports that the facials seem to help even out pigmentation and give the face a fresher appearance. Glycolic Acid facial applicators are applied in your physician's office by a trained specialist. The Gly Derm facial is initially performed on a weekly or bi-weekly basis for six to twelve weeks. Facials may be continued after that time for as long as you wish to continue to see results. Those patients looking for even greater improvements may continue the Gly Derm facials on a monthly basis. You'll receive personal attention to your skin type, as your physician will customize the strength of your facial. We recommend an initial series of six treatment facials followed by use of the cleanser and moisturizing lotions. All patients will by then note smoothing and improved texture of their skin and they should start to notice lightening of any brown spots. Improvement is then maintained through the continued use of the Gly Derm Home products.

Maintenance Products

Gly Derm maintenance products are formulated in 5% regular and 10% "Plus" strengths. These products will help to maintain the results of the in-office facial applications and continue to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin. The products should be applied sparingly to a cleansed face before going to bed. They should not be used on the night before or the night of the in-office facial. Using the products below will help to get the skin ready for higher in-office concentrations of Glycolic Acid and will also, with diligent use, help to maintain the results of the facials. To receive the full benefits of Gly Derm, one or more of these products should be used as part of Gly Derm's Program. Almost every Gly Derm patient will experience a slight stinging sensation after applying the Cream, Lotion, Lotion Lite or Solution. It lasts less than a minute. They will also feel a slight dryness, which is actually an invisible peeling, for the first few weeks. This is the beneficial effect of the program, and can easily be relieved with Gly Derm moisturizers, usually Hydrotone.
