What is Glyco 6 Cream (Glycolic Acid) used for?
Glyco 6 Cream (Glycolic Acid) is a topical medication commonly used to improve the appearance of the skin by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It operates as an exfolient to remove dead skin from the surface while encouraging the growth of new and healthier skin cells. This function may also make it useful for reducing the appearance of acne scars, seborrheic keratosis, or actinic keratosis. Your physician may also recommend its use for other unlisted purposes.
How should I use Glyco 6 Cream (Glycolic Acid)?
Glyco 6 Cream (Glycolic Acid) should be used according to your physician's instructions and those included with the packaging to get the most effective results from treatment. It is normally administered once daily, but your particular directions will depend on your health condition and the severity of your symptoms. Rinse the skin before use to get rid of any dirt or debris, apply a small amount of cream, gently massage it into the skin, and allow it to soak for several minutes before removing the top layer of skin. It is recommended to use rubber gloves, a brush, or an applicator to prevent the solution from peeling the skin from your hands.
