Our Lifting cream for elbows and knees Ph.Doctor with 12% glycolic acid is a multi-purpose cosmetic. Visibly firms, exfoliates and softens the skin. It prevents skin aging and normalizes the process of epidermis keratosis. Absorbs well.

Glycolic acid is one of the most commonly used AHA acids ( alpha-hydroxy acids) in cosmetics. Thanks to its structure, which allows it to penetrate into the deep layers of the skin, it ensures high efficiency of use. The acid is used to exfoliate the epidermis and stimulate skin cell renewal. It is usually obtained from sugar cane or fruit (grapes, apples or gooseberries).

There are many positive effects of using glycolic acid, including but not limited to:

  • Correction and alignment of skin tone
  • Lightening of pigmentation changes
  • Accelerated skin renewal
  • Acceleration of collagen synthesis
  • Keratosis of the epidermis is normalized by weakening the bonds between keratinocytes.

Lifting cream for elbows and knees has many applications. In addition to the use indicated by us, you can also use the beneficial effects of the active ingredients of the cream on other areas of the body:

  • Neckline: rejuvenates and smoothes wrinkles, lightens discoloration, reduces the first signs of skin aging. Application: 2-3 times a week, after increasing skin tolerance, the product can be used more often

(Note: Gentle pinching is a result of the low pH of the product and should pass after a few minutes. A white deposit on the skin and micro-exfoliation is completely normal, so we recommend using the product overnight).
