What does it do?
Chemical peels are similar to other AHA peels where glycolic acid peels removes the top layer of dead cells on your skin. This reveals a new layer that is smoother-textured and more vibrant-looking. Chemical peels help with fine lines, minor skin discolorations (such as "age" spots), and dry patches known as solar keratoses. These treatments are also useful for treating acne and for removing, or minimizing, old acne scars. Glycolic acid peels are also believed to stimulate the growth of collagen, a protein that helps give skin its structure. The loss of collagen due to aging and sun exposure is one of the major factors involved in the formation of lines and wrinkles.
To increase the effectiveness of the chemical peel, Dr. Manolis may recommend that you combine it with another treatment that removes the top micro-layer of skin: microdermabrasion.
Treatment with Glycolic Acid
Chemical peels may be administered in concentrations from 20% to 80%. The stronger the concentration of the peel, the deeper the peel will dissolve tissue. If someone is using Retin-A or Retinoid-like medications it will make a glycolic peel have a stronger effect, so let Dr. Manolis know if you are using such medications.
