How effective is a 30% glycolic acid peel at pH 2.6?

I am trying to decide between different glycolic peels to treat fine lines and ageing. One salon has recommended a course of 6 weekly peels starting at 30% glycolic pH 2.6 working upto 50% pH 2.3 - 2.4. The other has recommended a similar treatment plan but the only difference is the pH levels: 1.1 - 6. Which will be the most effective?

Thanks for your query. The first plan sounds more effective. It helps in treating fine lines. The major effect comes from Botox and fillers. Hope it helps.
