What is a Glycolic Acid Peel?

Glycolic acid is an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA) which naturally occurs in sugar cane, it has the smallest molecular size of all the AHA’s allowing it to better penetrate the skin.

It is applied to the skin in various strengths ranging from 20-70% for varying time frames depending on the desired result and skins response loosing the thickened surface layers of the skin that appear dry, rough,and scaly.

Personally, I only use  30% on my clients. With a series of 6-12 treatments skin is remarkably healthier and younger looking.

What are the advantages of having a series of glycolic peels?
