Peeling Good: 10 Most Common Chemical Peels and their Uses

Chemical peels are one of the oldest and most commonly used treatments in cosmetic dermatology. They use a combination of chemicals to exfoliate the top layer of skin, exposing younger-looking, healthier skin beneath. The type of chemical peel you receive depends on your particular skin condition and desired outcome – from evening out pigmentation to removing fine lines and wrinkles. Here we’ll look at 10 common chemical peels and their uses: 

Glycolic Chemical Peel

Glycolic Chemical Peel is an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) peel that helps reduce acne scarring, diminish signs of aging, even out skin tone, reduce discoloration, eliminate sun damage and improve overall texture. It can also help with rosacea and soften thick, coarse skin.

Lactic Peel

Lactic Peel is an AHA peel that helps reduce wrinkles, pigmentation unevenness, dullness and signs of aging. It can also improve overall texture and help exfoliate dead skin cells from the surface of your face.

Beta Peel

Beta Peel is a potent AHA/BHA blend used to help treat acne vulgaris (cystic acne) as well as pigmentation marks and age spots. It will also help reduce dryness, roughness, discoloration and uneven skin tones. 

Pigment Balancing Peel

Pigment Balancing Peel uses trichloroacetic acid (TCA) with hydroquinone to target areas of hyperpigmentation on the face caused by sun damage or acne scarring. This chemical peel helps lighten areas of discoloration, while also helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Retinol Peel

Retinol Peel is a powerful antioxidant that can help with anti-aging, discoloration and dullness. It penetrates deep into the skin layers to assist in cell turnover, resulting in firmer, brighter looking skin.

Jessner’s Peel

Jessner’s Peel uses lactic acid, resorcinol and salicylic acid to exfoliate dead cells from the surface of your face as well as break down melanin in order to even out pigmentation issues caused by sun damage or acne scarring. It can also help soften fine lines and wrinkles, improve texture and reduce pore size. 

Vitamin C Peel

Vitamin C Peel helps reduce the appearance of age spots and sun damage while evening out skin tone. It contains L-ascorbic acid which is a potent antioxidant that helps protect against free radical damage, support collagen production and decrease wrinkles. 

TCA Peel

TCA Peel is a powerful chemical peel used to address more advanced signs of aging such as deep lines and wrinkles, scarring or severe sun damage. It can also help with pigment issues and melasma.

Biorevitalization Peel ((PRX-T33)

Biorevitalization Peel (PRX-T33) combines trichloroacetic acid (TCA), hydrogen peroxide and resorcinol to stimulate cell renewal, tighten skin, improve elasticity, hydrate dry patches and even out skin tone. 

Vi Peel

VI Peel is a combination of TCA, Retinoic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Phenol and Vitamin C that helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles as well as diminish hyper pigmentation issues caused by sun damage or acne scarring. It will also help minimize the appearance of pores and create firmer looking skin. 

Chemical peels are an effective way to achieve smoother, younger-looking skin without requiring downtime. Each chemical peel has its own unique benefits based on your individual needs – so talk to your dermatologist about which one is right for you!
