Is Glycolic acid peel effective for first attempt?
Doctor Answers 2
To be sure you are receiving appropriate treatment, see two or more experienced, licensed and board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.
Depends on the dose
The doses can range from 30 percent to 70 percent.
High dose glycolics do more, but can scar if not performed by and experienced physician and gradually.
If the results are not enough, try a step or two higher concentration.
