This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

AAD TO RECOMMEND FDA REGULATION OF HIGH AHA CONCENTRATION PRODUCTS in guidelines on chemical peels that will be published later this year by the American Academy of Dermatology Chemical Peel Task Force. The task force, consisting of physicians who are members of AAD and who have had experience with chemical peels, will urge FDA to require that products containing alpha hydroxy acids at concentrations higher than 20-30% be applied only under the supervision of a physician. Currently, consumers can obtain skin peels with AHAs at concentrations up to 70% through estheticians.
