Effective Solutions for Skin Health

Glytone offers targeted, effective solutions in skin rejuvenation to enhance skin health and beauty. Visible results are achieved using a systematic approach of physian administered skin rejuvenating treatments and a comprehensive home care program for younger, more radiant skin.

Glytone products are formulated with a clinically proven ingredient, glycolic acid, a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) naturally found in sugar cane. Glycolic acid works by deeply penetrating the skin's surface and loosening the top layer of dull, damaged skin. The appearance of lines and wrinkles are reduced. Skin glows with renewed smoothness and radiance.

Rejuvenating Peels

Glytone rejuvenating peels are part of a comprehensive treatment program for younger, healther looking skin. Physician administered glycolic acid peels are clinically proven effective to be in treating skin aging, photoaging, hyperpigmentation and actinic damage.

Glytone rejuvenating peels range in concentration from 30% to 70% of non-neutralized glycolic acid for visible results with little to no downtime. Formulated exclusively for physicians, Glytone rejuvenating peels resurface the skin to reveal smoother, younger looking skin and help improve texture and pigmentation.

As part of a comprehensive skin rejuvenating program, your physician will prescribe a series of 6 to 8 peel treatments and select the appropriate peel concentration. Combined with at-home advanced care, Glytone's extraordinary products will help diminish the appearance of lines wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation.

"Step-Up" System

Step-up your skin rejuvenation program with the highest levels of "free" glycolic acid to reduce the signs of skin aging. A simple 3 step program provides visible de-aging through increasing concentration of glycolic acid therapy. Each step works to visibly diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, resulting in younger, healthier looking skin.

  • Step 1 (10%) — The first level of glycolic acid care softens the appearance of lines and wrinkles and enhances the skin texture.
  • Step 2 (15%) — Intensive glycolic acid care bathes skin in line minimizing, skin retexturizing renewal. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are diminished and skin tone is improved.
  • Step 3 (20%) — The most dramatic level of glycolic acid care produces dramatic results. For use only after completing steps 1 and 2.

Clarifying System

The Glytone Clarifying System is a physician prescribed home treatment regimen which combines the effectiveness of 4% hydroquinone and glycolic acid to help reduce hyper-pigmentation. The simple daily regimen improves skin clarity and tone. The appearance of lines and wrinkles are diminished as smoothness and elasticity are restored. Hyper-pigmented areas are lightened with regular use.

Customized by skin type, the Glytone Clarifying System Kit offers a complete home care program to brighten and restore skin health.

Acne Care

Proven acne fighting ingredients keep skin clear and healthy looking.

  • 2% salicylic acid exfoliates the skin's surface to help inhibit the proliferation of p.acnes bacteria.
  • Benzoyl peroxide helps control surface oil and neutralize p.acnes bacteria on the skin.
  • Glycolic acid helps refine and retexturize skin.

Adjunctive acne care: Flesh tinted acne treatment lotion helps minimize blemishes with sulfur and resorcinol as it provides light coverage to mask imperfections.

The Acne home treatment kit contains: Exfoliating gel wash, Acne treatment solution, 10% Benzoyl peroxide, Acne treatment gel and Acne masque for 24 hour acne management.

Body System

Keratosis pilaris is a common skin condition characterized by small, red bumps primarily on the back and upper arms. The Keratosis pilaris kit will help reduce these symptoms. The 2 step system incorporates intensive glycolic acid levels to rid skin of unsightly bumps. The Exfoliating body wash cleanses and exfoliates skin. The Body lotion, used in conjunction with the Exfoliating body wash, smoothes away those rough bumps to reveal smooth, supple skin. And if your heels and elbows are less than smooth, Ultra heel and elbow provides relief from coarse, dry skin. Ideal for use throughout the year, Ultra heel and elbow will ensure that you can put your best foot forward.

Glytone Skin Care Products Frequently Asked Questions

What is a peel and how does it benefit my skin?

A peel is the process of applying a high concentration of glycolic acid to the skin for a few minutes, and then neutralizing it with a solution. You may experience a tingling sensation, slight stinging and mild redness that may last for several minutes. The immediate result is softer, smoother skin. A series of peels, used over weeks or months, along with a daily skin care regimen, sloughs away the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal fresher, healthier looking skin.

What kinds of improvement can I expect with a peel treatment?

Improvements will vary from patient to patient. In general, you will notice:

  • Smoother skin texture and tone
  • Diminished fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduction of brown (age) spots
  • Control of excess oil
  • Restored vitality
  • Reduction in blemishes

How soon will I notice results? How long does the program last?

You will feel an improvement in the softness of your skin in as little as 1 week. As the treatment progresses, you will notice a difference in the overall appearance of your skin. The peel program generally consists of a series of peels given every 2 weeks. The length of the program and frequency of visits, however, will be determined by you and the medical professionals at Spa Greystone. The at-home regimen provides daily exfoliation and maximizes the benefits of your peels. Keep in mind that it will take several months of treatment before you see the optimal skin rejuvenation benefits.

Are the at-home skin care products effective without the peels?

Yes, the at-home skincare products can be effective without the peels. Keep in mind, though, that using the at-home products together with a peel regimen will deliver the best results at a much quicker rate.

Who is a candidate for the glycolic acid peel?

During the consultation, your medical history will be reviewed and you will be prescribed the treatment that best meets your needs. Let us know if you have experienced any of the following: active herpes simplex (cold sores), psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, recent surgeries, a bad sunburn, hypertrophic or keloidal scarring or used Accutane. It's also important to tell us if you sunbathe, use a sun-tanning booth, smoke, are pregnant or nursing, or are a vegetarian.

Can men or younger adults benefit from glycolic acid peels?

Yes! Glytone peels provide the same exfoliation benefits for men as for women, including helping to slough away dead skin cells to reveal healthier skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Glycolic acid also helps minimize razor bumps. For teens with acne-prone skin, Glytone peels help eliminate oil and reduce the further breakout of acne.

How are Glytone products different from the products available at department stores?

Glytone products are available only through a physician. Glytone products use elevated levels of glycolic acid to provide maximum rejuvanation benefits. Store brands neutralize or chemically alter their products to the point where the acid is no longer effective for skin rejuvenation. Glytone products contain levels of glycolic acid that have been shown to promote collagen production. Glytone is a powerful program that is only available with your physician's guidance.
