A gel peel is a light chemical peel that gently removes the top layers of your skin. This is a great option for beginners looking to get a fresh glow. A gel peel helps to smooth out flaws such as uneven skin tone and acne blemishes, and encourages collagen growth. It is available in Glycolic/Lactic (GL) or Salicylic/Mandelic (SM), depending on skin concerns.
Peels that use glycolic acid are great for people looking to lighten skin discoloration and smooth out skin texture. A glycolic peel has notable anti-aging benefits. By increasing cell regeneration, it helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Due to its strength, a glycolic acid peel may have side effects and longer recovery periods than other resurfacing treatments.
Peels that use salicylic acid are great for oily and acne-prone skin. A salicylic peel works by encouraging the shedding of outer layers of skin and dislodging dirt and sebum from within the pores. Compared to other types of peels, a salicylic MicroPeel is particularly helpful for treating acne, as the salicylic acid penetrates deep into the skin, unclogging pores and decreasing the amount of oil on the skin.

Chemical Peels Q & A
What are chemical peels?
A chemical peel is a skin treatment that helps people to get brighter, cleaner skin. The chemical combination varies depending on the peel, but each solution serves the purpose of breaking down the top layers of your skin, literally peeling away blemishes and imperfections. Underneath these layers, a fresh layer of skin is revealed. Since the body’s healing response is triggered through this process, it also sends new, healthy skin cells to the surface. Depending on the depth of the peel, it can penetrate several layers deep into the skin to remove damage.
How will a chemical peel benefit my skin?
Chemical peels have many benefits, which can vary depending on the strength of your peel. Some of the most notable benefits include:
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Repairing sun damage
- Fading scars
- Treating acne
- Reducing age spots and skin discoloration
- Smoothing out skin
Chemical peels are overall a great treatment to receive on a regular basis. You can come in as often as every 4-6 weeks to keep your skin constantly fresh and rejuvenated.
