Glycolic peels are mild peels and great for most skin types and can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, improvement of skin texture and skin tone. They are best for treating surface imperfections, like light skin discolorations, acne, and blackheads.
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 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.
