Glyco Cream (Glycolic Acid)
What is Glyco Cream (Glycolic Acid) used for?
Glyco Cream (Glycolic Acid) is a topical medication prescribed to fight signs of aging skin. The cream operates by promoting the renewal of skin cells by exfoliating and encouraging new cell production to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other blemishes. Your doctor may also prescribe it for other unlisted purposes, as well.
How should I use Glyco Cream (Glycolic Acid)?
Glyco Cream (Glycolic Acid) is normally administered once or twice each day, but your instructions will be determined by your doctor based on your health condition and the severity of your symptoms. To use the cream rinse and dry the areas being treated, apply a small amount of medication, gently massage it into the skin, and leave the areas uncovered to allow any excess cream to evaporate. Wash your hands using soap and water after each application to prevent the medication from contacting any mucous membranes or other areas of skin not being treated. Ask your doctor any questions you have about using the medicine to ensure the correct administration.
What are the side effects of Glyco Cream (Glycolic Acid)?
Although uncommon, the use of Glyco Cream (Glycolic Acid) may cause side effects in some patients including:
