Acid peel is a facial peel designed to reduce the appearance of adult acne blemishes, wrinkles, sun damaged skin,  or to soften acne scars. Chemical peel concentrations vary and are selected based on the skin condition.


Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are naturally occurring organic carboxylic acids such as glycolic acid, a natural constituent of sugar cane juice and lactic acid, found in sour milk and tomato juice. This is the mildest of the peel formulas and produces light peels for treatment of fine wrinkles, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne.


Glycolic Acid: Formulated from sugar cane, this acid creates a mild exfoliating action. Glycolic acid peels work by loosening up the horny layer and exfoliating the superficial top layer. This peel also stimulates collagen growth.


The Glycolic Acid Peel is a procedure used to revitalize skin that appears dull or non-vibrant. It is also used to improve acne and acne scars as well as to reduce brown spots on the skin. 



Since it is a fruit-derived alpha hydroxy acid, it gently sheds dead, dull surface cells, permitting new healthy cells to take their place, leaving your skin refreshed.


Glycolic peels result in a major improvement in the skin's clarity, texture, color, and tone. It reduces lines and wrinkles, resulting in smoother, firmer skin. It reduces pore size and improves acne-prone skin.
