4 Different Types of Chemical Peels

chemical peels | san francisco caChemical peels are a great way to help rejuvenate your skin in order to give it a healthy glow. Used to treat things such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, active acne, or simply just to help your skin to look it’s best, chemical peels are popular among both men and women alike. However, did you know that there are different types of chemical peels that are proven to do different things. Here at SKIN Medical Spa, we know that everyone has different skin needs and that’s why we work our hardest to provide our patients with several options. From glycolic peels to a lactic peel, this article will discuss the four different peels that SKIN Medical Center offers and why.

Glycolic Peels
As the most popular type of peel and the peel that most patients are familiar with, glycolic peels use alpha-hydroxy acids to help increase your skin’s performance and encourage the production of new skin growth. As one of the many benefits to new skin growth, glycolic peels also help to stimulate the production of collagen, refine the appearance of large pores, and help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Obagi Blue Radiance Peel
This unique peel uses salicylic acid— a natural substance— to slough off dead skin cells while simultaneously stimulating new skin growth. The Obagi Blue Radiance Peel is designed to reduce acne breakouts, balance skin tone, reduce fine lines, and diminish acne scars.

Revitalize Peel
Designed to provide patients with drastic results after receiving a series of peels, the Revitalize Peel uses alpha-hydroxy acids to improve the skin’s texture and tone, lessen the appearance of fine lines, and give patients a more youthful and healthier glow. Additionally, the Revitalize Peel is proven to help fade any sort of skin pigmentation, stimulate collagen production, and reduce the appearance of acne scarring.

Lactic Peel
This peel is designed to get people ready for a big event without having to worry about skin peeling or any sort of downtime. By using lactic acid to gently exfoliate the skin, pigment and sun damage are naturally lightened and the skin will suddenly look more radiant and youthful.
