Glycolic Peel

Glycolic peels are all natural (derived from sugar cane) and are in the lightest category of chemical peels. Known as a "lunchtime procedure," due to their short duration and rapid recovery time, glycolic peels can be used to remove superficial wrinkles and dry patches of skin, as well as to treat sun damage and acne scars .There is no downtime associated with a glycolic peel. There may be some dryness, flakiness, and redness as the top layer of skin falls away to reveal a smoother, healthier skin beneath however some oilier skins may experience no visible peeling.  Salicylic acid or beta peels are often prescribed for patients who have oily skin or are acne prone.  The Beta peel is a very elegant superficial peel.  Unlike other superficial peels, the Beta Peel generally has little or no downtime.  The safety profile is excellent and these peels and can be done on all most types. It is a very brief procedure done usually in about 15 minutes and there is no pain, only an occasional mild stinging in some individuals.
