Chemical peels are popular noninvasive treatments to improve the discoloration and texture of the skin of the face, neck, hands, and many other areas of the body. Chemical peels utilize different types of acid solutions of varying strengths and combinations. These acids are designed to penetrate the skin’s surface at varying depths to help peel away the dull older cells and reveal the newer, softer, shinier skin. Certain peels can also target acne and greatly enhance any acne regimen.
Types of Chemical Peels
- Superficial Peels
Superficial peels are the fastest chemical peels, as they can often be completed during your lunchbreak with no downtime. These peels are popular for targeting clogged pores, and to help improve the appearance of fine lines and pigmentation.
- Medium Peels
Using a combination of peels, medium depth peels provide a deeper, more effective level of exfoliation than superficial peels – allowing us to treat deeper scars, wrinkles, and even certain skin growths, such as actinic keratoses, or pre-cancerous spots.
