These peels are not to be used in treating any medical condition. They are cosmetic products created for the purpose of beauty only.
The mechanism of action of chemical peels agents is to accelerate epidermal turnover and remove melanized keratinocytes, leading to loss of melanin granules. Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation is the most common complication, especially in dark-skinned individuals.
Exfoliants such as alpha-hydroxy acids may help lighten melasma, solar lentigines, and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. Glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane and is used as an ingredient in skin-lightening products in low concentrations. It may also be used as a peeling agent in concentrations of 30-70% to increase the efficacy of other lightening agents such as hydroquinone by removal of the epidermis,. Repeated peels every 2-3 weeks are necessary to attain significant lightening.
