GLYCOLIC Chemical Peels
Glycolic acid peels are resurfacing treatments that remove the top layer of the skin, revealing the smoother, younger skin underneath. They’re commonly used to treat acne, reduce the appearance of fine lines or wrinkles, and lighten hyperpigmentation or skin discoloration.

What is a *GLYCOLIC Chemical Peel?
Glycolic acid is an all-natural, alpha-hydroxy-acid derived from sugar cane. Once inside the skin’s cell, it serves as a catalyst for the formation of new collagen. These peels will visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, balance skin tone, improve texture and it’s great for clearing acne prone skin.
** Notice to all patients considering a Glycolic Treatment or a Diamond Glow Dermalinfusion Treatment. Accutane should be discontinued for at least 1 year before administering a Glycolic Treatment or a Diamond Glow Treatment and then only with a physician’s approval.
Benefits of Glycolic Treatments:
Glycolic acid exfoliates and penetrates the skin, resulting in three key benefits.
- Acne - In addition to providing exfoliating benefits that can help prevent and treat acne, it also is able to get into the pores and break up sebum that likely would have led to the formation of acne in the future. Glycolic acid peels can effectively treat acne vulgaris and inflammation associated with it, and its resurfacing abilities can even smooth out acne scars.
- Signs of aging - Since glycolic acid peels are resurfacing treatments, they can smooth out the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Their ability to stimulate collagen production is also key, resulting in plumper, younger-looking skin. The peel’s lightening abilities can take away age spots and sunspots, which also helps with the anti-aging effects.
- Uneven skin tone - Though the glycolic acid peels can cause redness and irritation immediately after use, they can result in an even, uniform skin complexion. The lightening abilities of the acid can fade freckles, sun spots, and hyperpigmentation. It can even treat melasma, which creates patches or grey or brown on the skin can can be hard to treat with other methods.
