Glycolic peels are the most popular chemical peels. Glycolic is natural and comes from sugar cane. It is a fruit acid and one of the most effective alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). It is very effective for skin peels and has been extensively studied for its resurfacing, antioxidant and collagen & elastic stimulating properties. Glycolic Acid has one of the smallest molecular structure of all the AHAs and therefore it can easily work within the epidermis, the skin's outmost layer. Glycolic peels penetrate the skin and help remove uneven dull, dry skin. For optimal results skin peels should be done on a regular basis.
