What are medical grade glycolic peels?
Glycolic acid is an effective treatment for correcting the skin damage caused by aging, sun exposure, scarring and acne. Medical grade glycolic peels use a higher concentration of glycolic acid, typically ranging from 30% to 70%, to address various skin conditions.
What is involved? Will I need further treatments?
Your specific regimen is determined during your consultation appointment. Based on your skin type and cosmetic goals, your physician determines the type of medical grade glycolic peel that is needed. The medical grade glycolic peel solution is applied to your skin and remains on your skin for a certain amount of time. This allows the solution to penetrate your skin. You see results after your first treatment, but additional treatments may be needed for best results. Typically, patients receive three to six treatments every two to three weeks.
How long does the procedure take?
The medical grade glycolic peel process takes about 15-20 minutes. Although the results are usually not permanent, maintained improvement can be accomplished by periodic re-treatments.
