Available Options:

Thickened upper layers of stratum corneum, a common condition of the skin, is a result of increased resistive build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. This condition is not only physically unappealing, it usually lends itself to several other unwanted conditions such as comedone formation, milia, etc.

Safe, effective, for all non-sensitive skin types. Glycolic peels are great as anti-aging treatments. They accelerate the removal of dead, pore-clogged skin; reduce the appearance of fine lines and sun damage. 

If you are looking for a facial treatment that will significantly improve and smooth the texture of your face, a chemical peel is a great way to remove the damaged outer layers of your skin. Chemical peels have been proven to help reduce signs of wrinkles, skin spots or uneven coloring on your skin. Peels can also be used as an aggressive acne treatment and can help get rid of acne and the acne scars that severe acne can leave behind. The glycolic peels listed on this page are of the buffered variety. Buffering raises the pH level of the acid so that it is not too strong. A higher pH level will slow-down the action of the acid. They can be left on longer than an unbuffered variety, and are thus safer. These peels are perfect for at-home usage. 

We suggest using a glycolic cleanser and toner to prepare for your peel (such as our Gentle Cleanser and 10% Toner).  You can also use the 10% Toner after the peel to neutralize the skin.  Please remember to use a sunscreen when dealing with acid peels. 

Ingredients:  40% Glycolic Acid Ultrapure (tm) partially neutralized by Ammonium Hydroxide to a final pH 2.1 -- 
Aloe Vera Gel, Glycolic Acid (40%), SD Alcohol 40, Ammonium Hydroxide, Guar Gum, Hydroxyethylcellulose.



The best candidates for chemical peels are the light skin types 1, 2, and 3, which have less chance for such complications as hyper (dark spots) and hypo (light spots) pigmentation and scarring. Although skin types 5 and 6 are not ideal for peels, they can be peeled using such superficial agents as salicylic acid or a low percentage glycolic acid such as 30% or 40% 
What is the best peel for your skin type?

What is the big difference between Home Peels and Dr. Peels?

We know that you want to know the real difference between "home peels" and "Doctor's office" peels. Well, here it is… PH levels are the biggest factor! The lower the pH level, the deeper and quicker a peel will penetrate into the skin. 
*Many Dr.’s use the same pH levels that we carry and only to find they need to use the lower pH levels on people with severely damaged skin. The following chart is a comparison of the pH levels of our glycolic acid peels (*our pH levels are lower than most sites).

Doctor's office
Home peels (Aglow’s)
40% pH 1.6
40% pH 2.1*

We want you to know what the difference is and most importantly why. When you are at a doctor's office there are professionals who are continually monitoring your skin for erythema’s, frosting and any other signs that the acid needs to be neutralized immediately or you could get a burn. When you are in the privacy of your own home you do not have a professional on hand to make sure that you do not burn your skin.

If you feel you need a deeper peel than ours - - PLEASE have a physician perform it on you!

Of course you will get great results! You may have to do an extra peel or two, to equal that of the doctor's office

The use of a Peel Applicator Fan Brush will give the most impressive and professional results.
