Different peels are suited to different skin types and different skin conditions. Chemical peels are a way to rejuvenate and resurface the skin by creating a controlled wound on the surface of the skin. The strength of the chemical peel determines the depth of the peel as well as the downtime.
Superficial chemical peels can be performed as often as every 2 weeks, with a series of peels required to obtain best results. Superficial peels can assist in correcting uneven texture and tone, unclog pores and remove acne-causing excess oil from the skin.
Medium depth peels are primarily used as a treatment for acne scarring. This peel causes a significant exfoliation of the surface layers, leaving your skin looking refreshed and youthful.
