Glykopeel® is a dermatological peeling which visibly improves the skin’s appearance without side effects. The glykopeel® is a medical peel and the procedure is done in a medical centre.

It is specially adapted to treat wrinkles, loss of elasticity, lack of radiance, hyper-pigmentation, micro cystic acne and skin irregularities.

Filorga Glykopeel® is suitable for anyone at anytime and all skin types, even the most sensitive skin. It can be done all year round and not just in winter time. You can return to work and daily activities immediately without any recovery period needed.

7 major active ingredients:

  • A powerful exfoliant – glycolic acid
  • 2 depigmenting agents – kojic acid & bearberry
  • An anti-inflammatory and vascular protector – white mulberry
  • Vitamins A, C and E that re-enforce their power

Exfoliating: The exfoliating action is ensured with glycolic acid. It is a major exfoliant that diminishes the thickness of the hyperkeratotic stratum corneum (top layer of dead old skin) by diminishing the cohesion of corneocytes. (dead cells)

Stimulating: Because of the reduced size of its molecular structure, glycolic acid has a high transcutaneous penetration potential. Because it enters the skin easily it stimulates the fibroblasts and increases the synthesis of elastin and collagen and glycoaminoglycans, the cell that make you skin thicker, look younger and more radiant.

Depigmentating: Kojic acid & Bearberry extracts are powerful and safe ingredients that are capable of reducing the melanocytes – the cells that produce the brown discolouration and pigmentation on the skin surface. They work by inhibiting the molecule tyrosinase. The exclusive association of these 2 active ingredients ensures the best treatment of pigmentation problems.

Revitalizing: Filorga Glykopeel® peeling vitamins play an important role in protecting, restructuring and reactivating the skin.

Why do you need to exfoliate the skin after sun exposure?
