Glycolic peels are rapid exfoliating fruit acid peels that reduce fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and pigment irregularities. These can help clear acne prone skin and reduce scarring. Glycolic peels are also great for mature or aging skin. They work by removing dull, dead skin cells and stimulate new cell growth to reveal a brighter, fresher complexion. A mild tingling sensation is felt during treatment. Concentrations of 20% to 70% can be used, usually in a series of 6 treatments, with gradually increasing the strength.

Following your glycolic peel there is little to no down time. The peel may result in redness, tightness, peeling and/or flaking of the skin. You can apply make-up the day following your treatment. As with all medical grade facial treatments it is very important to apply sunscreen to your skin post treatment.

If you are taking Accutane, are pregnant, or are trying to get pregnant, you are not a candidate for a glycolic peel.
