What's the best way to exfoliate skin at home?
We recommend a glycolic acid wash initially, a glycolic cream at night if a stronger exfoliation is desired or a glycol/salicylic wash if prone to acne. A scrub wash can be used once a week as well.
For in office exfoliation we recommend chemical peels, such as the VIP Peel or Nanolaser peel.

It is wise to do gentle exfoliation at home with a glycolic acid facial wash (best to purchase through a plastic surgeon or dermatologist to get a high quality product that you cannot get at the drug store or department store) It is best not to be too vigorous at home, but consistent use of a good facial wash will help. Intermittently see a professional for some microdermabrasion or a microlaser peel to make your home wash even more effective.
