Glycolic Peels

Glycolic peels rejuvenate sun-damaged skin by removing areas of blotchy pigmentation and softening lines and wrinkles. Peels are performed by applying an acidic solution made from sugar cane to the skin. This application promotes the shedding of damaged superficial skin cells and exposes a fresh new layer of younger, healthier looking skin. Some patients may experience mild redness of the skin following a peel. This is temporary and most people can return to work and resume their normal activities immediately.

The Midtown Health and Wellness Clinic offers a variety of peels ranging from the "light" variation to more aggressive, deeper exfoliating or hydrating ones that can repair more severely damaged skin. There is a chemical peel for every skin type and a series of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended for the best results, followed by a maintenance regime.
