Getting the Most Out of Your Facial Peel Appointment

Whether your complaint is fine lines or adult onset acne, today’s modern skincare treatments offer remedies and fixes for whatever ails you, in fact, there are so many options out there that it can be hard to decipher what treatment is best for you.  Chemical peels are the currently the most popular facial care options, but finding which facial peel treatment aurora is right for you can be a challenge.  Here’s some information on the most popular options to help you decide.

Glycolic Peel

By far the most popular of all the current peels on the market is the glycolic peel.  If you’re looking for ways to treat fine lines, brighten your skin and exfoliate dead cells, a glycolic peel might be the best choice for you. Primarily using a blend of alpha-hydroxy acids that can be customized depending on your skin type and goals, the peel works by going deep into your top layer of dead skin cells, and removing them through the peeling process, allowing a fresh layer of skin to come to the surface.

Lactic Acid Peel

Lactic acid peels have gained in popularity recently because of their quick “recovery” time and smaller impact on your skin.  Sometimes called a “lunchtime” peel because of this, a lactic acid peel uses an alpha-hydroxy acid derived from sour milk to treat fine lines and skin dullness and encourages skin cell turnover. If you deal with sensitive skin issues, ask your aesthetician if this lower intensity facial peel might be the best choice for you.

Salicylic Acid Peel

If your biggest skin complaint involves challenges with acne, blackheads and larger than life pores, then the salicylic acid peel option might be for you.  The salicylic peel promotes cell turnover, removes dead cells and allows for healthier skin and tighter pores to shine through.  As always, discuss with your aesthetician to see if this peel will be the best bet for your desired results.

With many different options to choose from, you’re sure to find a chemical peel that will be right for you and allow you to put your best face forward.
