As a leading plastic surgery specialist, Dr. Precht is proud to offer a range of non-invasive facial beautification treatments, such as glycolic peel. Glycolic acid, also known as hydroxyacetic acid, is the simplest of a group of naturally occurring acids collectively known as alpha hydroxy acids or AHAs. This chemical peel creates a mild exfoliating action that works to improve and smooth the texture of your facial skin by removing the damaged outer layers. The treatment is effective for people with skin discoloration or uneven pigmentation, enlarged pores, clogged pores, oily skin, and mild scarring. Glycolic peels also stimulate collagen growth, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Following the treatment, the skin will feel soft and have a healthy glow.
