What is a Glycolic Acid Peel?

Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that can be extracted from fruits, sugar beets, and sugar cane. “It is one of the mildest acids that can be used on the skin,” says dermatologist Francesca Fusco. “It dissolves the 'cement’ that holds the superficial cells together in the upper most layer of skin, allowing it to exfoliate the skin.”

Dermatologist Jeremy Brauer explains that glycolic acid is the go-to ingredient dermatologists normally use to treat acne, scars, fine lines, melasma, hyperpigmentation, and sun spots.
