Glycogent™ from ZO Skin Health
Skin age does not always reflect how young you feel on the inside but unfortunately it is the skin that is usually the first to show signs of cell damage.
Years of exposure to the elements, poor skin care regimes, lifestyle choices, genetics and skin disorders can all contribute to skin appearing dull, marked with lines and scars or possibly with patches of hyperpigmentation.
The science of skincare
Because the science of skincare is constantly changing and being reinvented, it is hard not to be overwhelmed by the vast array of information out there advising you on how to reverse the clock and get that smooth texture and even skin tone you’ve always dreamed about.
But one constant thread running through most literature about dermatological procedures to reduce the signs of aging is the use of alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) to improve the overall appearance of your skin.
Using natural acids
Glycolic acid is a naturally occurring fruit acid that has been used in chemical peels and cosmetic products for years.
However high concentrations of glycolic acid can trigger skin irritation, which is why Dr. Zein Obagi developed Glycogent ™ as part of the ZO ® Medical Therapeutic Solutions skincare range.
Increase cell renewal with Glycogent ™
By combining glycolic acid with lactic acid, which is gentler on skin, Glycogent ™ is an incredibly potent exfoliation accelerator that penetrates your skin to effectively remove the surface layer of dead cells.
Glycolic acid works by breaking down the substance that holds dead skin cells onto the surface which can dull your complexion.
Lactic acid stimulates the generation of cells without causing irritation as well as increasing the natural ceramides in the skin. Skin is left more hydrated and soft to touch.
Younger looking skin
Once the outer layer of dead skin has been removed, both the glycolic acid and lactic acid work to improve elasticity and texture over a period of a few months.
Fine lines and surface wrinkles are lessened, pores are clear and skin tone is more even, leaving your with clear, healthy looking skin.
Antioxidants in Glycogent ™ also help prevent any future damage to the skin and enhance the overall condition of your skin.
