Glycolic acid(AHA) is an alpha hydroxy acid derived from sugar cane. It exfoliates the skin and contributes to keep the skin clean. Glycolic acid is a popular chemical peel amongst young adults and those who want to brighten the skin and prevent break-outs.
Salicylic Chemical Peels
Salicylic chemical peels are also popular for acne prone skin. Salicylic peels regenerate the skin on a deeper level than what is typically achieved with microdermabrasion treatment or glycolic peels. By stimulating cutaneous shedding, we are able to exfoliate the superficial layers of the skin to avoid congestion and the build-up of acne bacteria. Unlike glycolid acid, Salicylic acid is also able to break down oils which is why salicylic acis is an effective acne treatment. Salicylic chemical peels are safe for all skin types.
