Skin Peels for Wrinkles, Acne and Sun Damage: How Skin Exfoliation Works
Skin peels are a great way to refresh your skin and treat any number of skin conditions. There are many different types of peels, exfoliators and resurfacers that work for various tasks. We will go over the differences between these products as well as what they do for our skin.
What Are The Types Of Skin Peels?
Exfoliators, resurfacers and peels all work to treat a range of conditions. Exfoliation is the gentlest way to refresh your skin. It removes the dead cells from our epidermis or top layer of skin, revealing new healthy skin below. This process can also be used in conjunction with other treatments, such as chemical peels to help remove the top layer of dead skin cells.
Light Peels :
Light peels are an excellent way to resurface your skin and remove sun damage, wrinkles or acne. Light peels work on the surface of the epidermis, so they have minimal downtime. They can be done weekly with no increased risk of scarring or hyperpigmentation (dark spots) as long as you use a good skincare regimen.
Medium peels work to resurface your skin and remove acne, sun damage or wrinkles while also treating fine lines and deep wrinkles with a few days of downtime required. You can typically have medium peels every two weeks, but you will need to use sunscreen for the entire year after they are done to protect your skin from the sun and such.
Heavy peels are for resurfacing skin, removing wrinkles or acne, and treating deep scars or hyperpigmentation with a few weeks of downtime required. You will need to use some form of sunscreen after heavy peels for one year or use a skincare product such as Hydroquinone.
Skin Tightening Peels:
A skin tightening peel is a form of heavy or medium peel that removes the top layer of your epidermis while also treating wrinkles, acne and sun damage. These peels require three weeks with no topical treatments allowed for approximately six months to see the best results.
Acne Peels (Acnelan)
Acne peels (Acnelan)are an excellent way to maintain clear, healthy skin. They work by removing the dead cells of your epidermis and revealing new healthy layers beneath. This process also helps with brown spots or pigmentation caused by acne or sun damage, which can lessen the appearance of scars. Acnelan treatments are a great way to maintain your clear skin.
Fine Line And Wrinkle Peels
Fine line and wrinkle peels work best for dry, dull-looking or ageing skin that needs some refreshing. The exfoliation works from the surface of the epidermis down, so you do not have to worry about hyperpigmentation.
You can typically get these peels done every five weeks or as needed, and they only last between ten and forty minutes, depending on the severity of your condition.
Skin Filler Peels
Skin filler peels are used for those who need a more intense resurfacing of the skin. This type of peel works best for acne, wrinkles, sun damage and hyperpigmentation or scars they are looking to treat by peeling away a much larger layer of dead cells than that found in a light peel. Skin filler peels can last up to two hours and require at least three days of recovery time.
Sun Damage And Wrinkles Peels
Sun damage and wrinkles peels work best for those looking to treat sun damage, acne or fine lines while also removing the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal new, healthy skin underneath. These types of peels can last anywhere from ten to thirty minutes depending on the severity of your condition and are done once or twice a month.
Rosacea Skin Peels
Rosacea skin peels are the gentlest of all and work best for those with mild rosacea. These peels can be done weekly or as needed without any increased risk of scarring or hyperpigmentation from excess exfoliation on your face, which is a common condition associated with rosacea.
Pigmentation Peels (Cosmelan Peel)
The Depigmentation Peel, also known as the Cosmelan Peel, is the best treatment for unwanted pigmentation and hyperpigmentation. This peel works by removing skin cells responsible for treating dark spots, sun damage or acne scars on your face. The Depigmenting Peel will leave you with fresh new-looking skin without any downtime required!
Chemical Skin Peels
A light or mild peel that addresses superficial cosmetic problems such as dry skin, mild acne and enlarged pores. Although your skin may feel sensitive following a glycolic peel, you can typically carry on with normal activities following treatment.
Salicylic Acid Peel
A light, gentler peel that is unbeatable for treating acne, enlarged pores, and black heads. A salicylic acid peel can also be used to address mild acne scarring and degrease oily skin helping to balance your complexion.
A popular medium-depth peel that combines resorcinol, lactic acid and salicylic acid to treat several skin problems simultaneously. A great peel for reducing hyperpigmentation, restoring sun-damaged skin and balancing oily, blemish-prone skin which shows signs of aging.
