Chemical peels are a common procedure used today in spas and dermatologists offices. Many times, women of color forgo these treatments due of lack of knowledge or having the wrong impression of these services and their benefits. In this article we will cover the many types of chemical peels and their effects and benefits on dark skin.
Glycolic Acid Peels
A glycolic acid peel is probably the first peel that a dermatologist or esthetician will consider for your skin. This peel is one of the mildest forms of peels, used for minor or superficial skin conditions, such as rough skin, or skin that is just beginning to show signs of aging. People in their late 20s, 30s and 40s typically use glycolic peels. Products with glycolic acid are readily available over the counter.
