Dark Circle Treatment using Glycolic peel

Due to the improvement in laser resurfacing technology, glycolic peels have suffered in popularity as a treatment for the removal of dark circles. Yet, glycolic peels can often help to reduce the appearance of dark circles.
If the dark circles are caused by hyperpigmnetation, glycolic peel help to reduce the appearance of the dark circles.
The skin on the eyelid is very thin and as a consequence medium depth or deep chemical peels are not advised as they have the potential to cause damage to the eyeball. Glycolic peels are most often used because these are the weakest variant of chemical peel, they do not penetrate as deeply.

Glycolic peel helps get rid of the dead cell layer that forms around the eyes and results in a fresher skin coming onto the surface. Majorly, glycolic peel aids in reducing the amount of pigmentation and improving the rate of collagen production. However, it cannot alone result in getting rid of dark circles completely.
