What Should Be the Range of a Light Glycolic Peel?

Light glycolic peels
Glycolic peels done in an office setting by a professional generally start at 20% and go all the way up to 70%. While they are considered superficial peels, the depth of penetration varies according to strength and how long the peel is left on the face before being neutralized. The percentage that you should be started on depends on a number of things such as skin type and skin sensitivity. Please see a board-certified dermatologist who can help put together a safe and effective peel regimen for you.
