As of March 20, 2020 we are no longer seeing patients in our office due to COVID-19. We are happy to continue caring for you during these uncertain times. We are now offering remote appointments for new and established patients although we will no longer be able to see you in person. For some patients, an in person visit is best, but if you feel that your concern could be addressed online, this may be a convenient option for you.
Having a discussion with your healthcare professional can help you make the best decision for your skin that will leave you glowing.
Glycolic chemical peels (also known as glycolic acid peels) are cosmetic treatments with mild peels and great for most skin types and can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and to improve skin texture and skin tone. They are best for treating surface imperfections, like light skin discolorations, acne, and blackheads. This peel is also good for treating melasma and pore reduction.
Glycolic acids also stimulate collagen, so over time multiple glycolic peels may help with very fine wrinkles and mild skin imperfections. For best results, we recommend a series of four chemical peel treatments every 4 to 6 weeks and periodically thereafter to maintain results. There’s usually no obvious peeling with glycolic peels and results become visible after a series of treatments.
Our goal here at The Dermatology of Institute of Boston is protect the health of our patients and staff. To continue caring for our patients during these uncertain times, while strictly adhering to the guidelines set by the CDC, we will be only offering virtual consultations. For some patients, an in person visit is best, but if you feel that your concern could be addressed online, this may be a convenient option for you.
