Chemical peels can be used to improve the appearance of a variety of skin concerns, including breakouts, blackheads, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles.
There are several different types of chemical peels, ranging from mild to deep. Mild peels will not usually cause any downtime like physical peeling of the skin, high strength peels may cause physical flaking or peeling.
Mild peels, such as glycolic acid 10%, lactic acid 10% and salicylic acid 2% are suitable for most skin types and are effective at improving the overall tone and texture of the skin.
Moderate peels, such as high strength glycolic acid and salicylic acid peels can be used by estheticians and can provide a deeper peel than home use products.
Deep peels, such as phenol peels, are the strongest and will cause the skin to physically peel, they are only suitable for certain skin types and should be performed by a trained professional.
Before undergoing a chemical peel, it is important to consult with a skin care professional to determine the best type of peel for your skin type and concerns. Here at Bravura we offer a free service via email or zoom to help you choose the right acid for your skin.
