The aim of this study is to determine the effects of different amino fruit acid(AFA; an α-hydroxy acid) peeling concentrations on the skin of women in their thirties, while suggesting an effective guideline of skin care that does not irritate the skin and does not disturb the everyday routine. Having reported in a previous study that women in their twenties and thirties have the most interest in chemical peeling, the authors divided 18 randomly selected women in their thirties into 3 groups; 6 women in the AFA 20% peeling group, 6 women in the AFA 30% peeling group, and 6 women in the AFA 40% peeling group. Chemical peeling was performed once a week for 6 weeks. Afterwards, the skin was measured to evaluate the differences before and after chemical peeling in sebum and hydration levels of the T and U zones, pigmentation, and fine wrinkles. Results showed that sebum and hydration levels of both T and U zones were improved in the AFA 40% peeling group. Pigmentation was significantly improved in all three groups, but showed the most improvement in the AFA 40% peeling group. Improvement of fine rhytides was also seen in all three groups, with the AFA 40% group being the most significantly improved. Based on these results, it can be concluded that the proper selection of AFA concentration by skin type can reduce skin irritation and provide a more effective means of skin care.
