Not peeling after a glycolic acid peel

One may not literally see peeling after a chemical peel, especially a superficial glycolic acid peel. Depending on what you are treating you can still get results. That being said you may need a stronger peel or another procedure for you wrinkles. Consult a board-certified dermatologist.
