The Right Chemical Peel for Your Skin Type

Posted on December 20th, 2021

Healthy skin is very important. As people age, it can become a lot harder to keep your skin in great shape. Fortunately, there are dozens of cosmetic procedures to help revitalize and replenish your skin. A medical-grade chemical peel is one of these procedures.

The modern chemical peel, as we tell our clients, is easy on the skin. It can help address lots of conditions and make you look and feel younger in the process. If you have a skin problem such as wrinkles, acne and uneven skin pigmentation, a personalized chemical peel might be right for you.

The Different Types of Chemical Peels

One of the best things about a chemical peel is there are many different types of chemical peels. Chemical peels can be divided into three “levels.” There’s a light chemical peel, a medium chemical peel, and a deep chemical peel.

Light Chemical Peel

The light chemical peel is a slight exfoliation of your skin. It will remove only the outermost layers of the skin. This is useful for dealing with superficial issues such as uneven skin tone and removing fine wrinkles as well as helping with dry or rough skin. You can get one every two to five weeks as needed to maintain your refreshed look.

Medium Peel

A medium chemical peel removes the epidermis and the top layer of your dermis. A medium chemical peel helps address deep wrinkles, bad acne scars and problems with uneven skin tone. At this depth, you’ll need to schedule time to recover as your skin will have slight peeling in the days following your treatment. This procedure may require multiple treatments to see the benefits you desire.

Deep Chemical Peel

A deep chemical peel removes the epidermis as well as the middle and upper layers of the dermis. A deep chemical peel can help with deeper wrinkles, large scars and precancerous skin patches. There will need to be many days of recovery time to heal after a deep chemical peel.

The Many Benefits

There are many benefits of a chemical peel. Chemical peels can help reduce the effects of acne by doing things such as decreasing the amount of oil your skin produces and increasing the absorption of treatments. It can also help reduce the appearance of aging skin. You can expect a reduction in problems such as age spots, roughness, and wrinkles. Some peels increase your skin’s production of collagen and elastin. The net result of this is often skin that is smoother and stronger.

Our medical-grade chemical peels can be custom formulated to match your skin type, thickness, and desired results. We recommend multiple treatments, usually a series of three, for the best chance at getting the desired results.
