Are you looking for an easy way to refresh your look, revive your skin and bring back your youthful glow? A chemical face peel may be the solution that you need to enhance your appearance without undergoing painful or invasive procedures that require long recovery times or hefty investments.

Since then, chemical peels have become one of the most popular facial treatment provided by Med Spas across the country.

What is a Chemical
Peel?

The Red Carpet Facial is one of the newest trends in the aesthetic industry. This treatment works to brighten, tone and tighten the skin of the face. It is an intensive treatment with results that are evident immediately afterwards. By resurfacing the outer layers of the skin, fine lines and wrinkles are reduced and the complexion is improved and made more radiant.

What are the Different Types of Chemical Peels?

There are a few different types of peels that can be used and the one that is right for you is determined by the type and severity of the conditions that you are looking to treat.

Medium Peels

TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) – Depending on the strength of acid used, this type of peel can assist with more severe skin problems such as skin discolorations and sun spots, scars and deeper folds and wrinkles of the skin.

Deep Peels

Phenol Peels – The most common chemical used in a Phenol Peel is carbolic acid. These peels are the strongest of all chemical peels and produce the most dramatic and long-lasting effects. These peels can completely resurface the skin and can drastically reduce wrinkles, scars and uneven skin tone.

Superficial or Micropeels

AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) – These are one of the gentlest type of chemical peels and come from natural sources such as citrus fruits, sugar cane, apples or milk. Using forms of AHA like citric acid, glycolic acid, lactic or malic acids will help to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles and resurface the skin, helping to brighten the face.

Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA’s) – Salicylic acid is the most common type of BHA and they help to clean clogged pores, reduce the production of oil by the skin and clear up blemishes and pimples.

Jessner’s Peels – This type of chemical peel combines BHA’s and AHA’s along with another chemical called resorcinol.  This type of peel can reach deeper under the surface of the skin for more dramatic results.
