Glycolic Acid Peels

This treatment is used to soften fine lines and wrinkles, improve the tone and texture of their skin and decrease pore size. It may reduce the appearance of mild acne scars as well as improve acne and pigment problems.

A glycolic acid peel is a simple procedure that improves skin texture by removing damaged outer layers. Peels are available in a range of strengths- from 20% to 70% glycolic acid. A series of increasingly stronger peels may be needed, depending on your skin’s condition.

There is a two week pre-procedure routine that introduces your skin to glycolic acid (if you are not already using it). There are some products and procedures that increase your sensitivity to the peel and should be discontinued a week before the peel. These include electrolysis, waxing, hair dyes, retinol and other exfoliant procedures (such as microdermabrasion).

The procedure itself takes about 20 minutes. Afterwards you may experience redness, stinging, itching or mild discomfort. These reactions subside within a few days. You can have peels done once a month to maintain the results achieved. Sunblock is strongly recommended.
