    What Is A Glycolic Peel?

    A glycolic peel is a skin smoothing procedure that applies a chemical solution to the skin, causing the outer damaged skin layer to peel off, revealing smoother skin underneath. This is a non-invasive procedure involving the application of glycolic acid, a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), and is among the mildest peels available.

    When Is A Glycolic Peel Helpful?

    A glycolic acid peel is helpful for patients with fine wrinkles, dry skin, skin spots or acne. Mild stinging, skin redness or dryness might occur, but typically goes away after a couple days.
