Glycolic Acid (AHA) Peel
Glycolic acid, which is derived from sugar cane, is probably the most popular grade of alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) used for facial peels. Glycolic acid peels are effective, with a minimum of side effects..
AHA peels exfoliating the skin, loosen and remove the layer of dead cells (keratinocytes) on the skin’s surface (the stratum corneum), revealing the smoother, healthier-looking layer below.
Regular treatments can help with fine lines, minor skin discolorations (such as “age” spots), brown marks and dry patches known as (solar keratoses). They also can help minimize acne scarring and even help with the treatment of acne by stripping away the plugs where acne bumps can form. AHA peels can be done not only on the face, but on the neck, chest, back, arms and hands. They’re often combined with microdermabrasion for even greater results.
