Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Facial PeelsWe use a 35% pure glycolic acid gel for the peels. It is not buffered & therefore penetrates deeper & faster. Even the most sensitive skin will benefit from glycolic acid. The lower the pH of the Glycolic Acid the more effective it is on the skin. The 35% gel has a pH of 0.7%. It is a safe chemical peel for all skin types, even the most sensitive skin. The best benefit is experienced by starting w/ a series of 3 peels, each two weeks apart. Then a maintenance peel every four to eight weeks. This schedule along w/ faithful use of the glycolic acid skin care products will produce the maximum benefit.
