Who doesn’t love a good facial? No, seriously, who doesn’t love to get a facial? There is almost nothing better than that lovely glow and freshness you feel after such a dang good facial. It is unbeatable. On a serious note, though… have you ever experienced a chemical peel?

If you said no, then listen up. This blog post is for YOU. Chemical peels are used to remove dead or damaged skin cells. It allows for the glowing, healthy skin to shine from underneath! Essentially, it is just a super great exfoliating treatment. Chemical peels are a great option for those that are wanting to treat: wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone/redness. Like most things, not all chemical peels are the same. Each one is unique and has its own types of benefits.

Superficial Peels

If you are looking for just a tad of a touch up on those pesky blemishes, then this is more than likely the peel you’ll want to get. It is a mild chemical peel that penetrates the outermost layer of skin. This is perfect for those just looking for a little touch-up!

Medium Peels

Medium chemical peels are the way to go if you are looking for a deeper, more effective skin cell removing treatment. This goes below the top layer of skin, and it seeks deep into the middle layer of cells as well. This is a better treatment for those looking to lessen small scarring and fine lines.

Deep Peels

Now, the nitty-gritty of chemical peels: deep peels. These bad boys will fully penetrate the middle layer of skin. It removes the deepest damaged skin cells of all chemical peels, but that being said, because of the acids used, it must be done in 15-minute intervals. It is perfectly safe, and you will see great results, but it is recommended to meet with a medical professional before receiving any chemical peel, for that matter.

Chemical peels are a great way to truly cleanse and exfoliate the skin to reveal blemish-free and bright skin. Talk to a medical professional about which chemical peel would best fit your needs.
