Glycolic acid chemical peels are a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that loosen the bonds/glue that hold dead skin cells together, by removing this glue the dead cells are then released revealing glowing skin. Despite the name, your skin probably will not peel much. Regardless of the degree of peeling, your skin cells are still sloughing off at an accelerated rate and you are receiving all of the benefits.
Glycolic peels treat superficial skin concerns such as dullness, hyperpigmentation, and acne. Glycolic acids also stimulate collagen building, so over time, multiple glycolic peels may help with very fine wrinkles and acne scars. While a single peel will leave a healthy glow, most patients will require a series of peels to accomplish their goals.
