Chemical Skin Peels: Glycolic vs. Salicylic Peel

Facial_2A chemical peel most often is used to break down the bonds that hold dead skin cells in place leaving behind healthier, newer looking skin. This newer layer is smoother textured and more vibrant looking.

Skin peels are performed on the face, neck or hands by one of our highly experienced RN under the supervision and guidance of Dr. Fisher, our board certified physician.

Acne scars respond well to chemical peels due to the collagen growth induced by the exfoliation solution. They also help improve discoloration and age spotting while providing a general resurfacing of the face.

Skin wrinkles caused by sun is just one of the primary conditions we address for patients seeking skin care solutions.

Salicylic acid is known as a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) and is synthetically made, unlike alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) which are extracted from plants and fruits such as sugar cane plants. One advantage of salicylic acid peels is that the anti-inflammatory property of salicylic acid helps to prevent problems such as irritation that may occur after the treatment.

Like other AHA skin peels, Glycolic acid peels removes the top layer of dead cells on your skin leaving younger more vital skin cells. These younger cells are now given the opportunity to thrive. A glycolic peel is also useful for treating acne and for removing old acne scars. To increase the effectiveness of the peel, Dr. Fisher may recommend that you combine your treatment with our microdermabrasion system that removes the top micro-layer of skin.

We may also suggest physician grade topical products and creams.

Our primary skin treamtent headquarters is located in lower Bucks County and convenient to clients in NE Philadelphia, Lower Moreland and eastern Montgomery County. Dr. Fisher's Aesthetic Centers have the Delaware Valley covered.

Success Stories

"My weight loss journey began on Wednesday, June 16th. This is the day I made a decision to face my weight issues once and for all. I was blessed to be introduced to Dr. Jon Fisher of Fisher’s Medical Weight Loss Centers.
As of June 30th, I have lost 11.4 pounds! I’m eating better, I feel better and I’m sleeping better. I have tried many diets before but this one is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle change program for me. It’s safe and effective.
