Hi Dr Schultz,

Where can I get this 40% glycolic treatment. Can this product be used for any age?

@Mary: 40% glycolic treatments are and should be done only in physicians' (dermatologists') offices. I don't think the manufacturers will sell it to non physicians. In estheticians offices, spas, etc., 20% treatments are available.

40% glycolic can be used at any age as long as the person does not have sensitive skin.

How can you incorporate a glycolic treatment in a full european spa facial? Can it be done. Can you use galvanic or high frequency with a glycolic treatment?

@Tamara: There are so many variation of a "full European spa facial" that you'll have to consult with the person doing the facial. Regarding your second question, while they can be used together, I advise against it.
