About Glycolic Glycolic peels are a more gentle form of chemical peel that primarily penetrates the most superficial layer of skin. They remove blemishes, brighten skin, help to fade or eliminate sunspots, hide acne scars, diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and give the skin a healthy glow. Because they are mild, glycolic peels require less recovery time. Best results are achieved after performing multiple peels over a period of time. Recovery Time Due to the mild nature of glycolic peels, recovery time is virtually non-existent. Slight irritation or redness may occur to the skin, but it will not be enough to disrupt normal daily activities, and can usually be covered up with make-up starting the day after the peel has been performed.
