GLYCOLIC ACID PEEL
What is a Glycolic peel?
A professional glycolic peel is a light to medium chemical peel which is made from glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). AHAs are natural occurring acids derived from certain plants and fruits. Glycolic can effectively penetrate deep into the skin, providing collagen stimulation and dermal hydration through exfoliation, promoting surface cellular renewal.
What is glycolic acid peel most used for?
A glycolic acid peel is one the most effective treatments for:
- Fine Lines
- Uneven Skin Tone
- Hyperpigmentation or Skin Damage

Glycolic peels can be used on a monthly basis to maintain healthy looking, beautiful skin by removing damaged surface skin cells.
For certain conditions, it is recommended to use the peel weekly or biweekly. Light glycolic peels are quick and very simple with no lasting skin redness after treatment.
