Stress, the environment, and aging can dull your skin and strip you of your bright, youthful appearance. While a thorough at-home skin care routine is important to maintain the beauty of your skin, many people require routine treatments to achieve their best complexion possible.Spa Model Relaxing Chemical peels are the ideal choice for many patients because they work deep in the skin and target a number of skin problems. However, not every chemical peel is created equal, and not everyone’s skin problems are the same. Choosing them best chemical peel for you will depend on your skin’s sensitivity, the type of problem you are looking to correct, as well as the severity of the problem.     

Lactic Acid Peel for Sensitive Skin

Lactic acid peels are derived from milk enzymes and are ideal for patients with sensitive skin or first-time peel users. Lactic acid peel formulas can treat both dry or oily skin types. These peels are considered mild and have very little downtime. Lactic acid peels are the ideal treatment for anyone looking to:

  • Exfoliate their skin
  • Deep clean pores
  • Fade dark spots
  • Even skin tone
  • Brighten skin

Glycolic Acid Peel for Aging Skin

Patients with aging skin are usually looking for treatments that stimulate collagen production to counteract fine lines and wrinkles. Glycolic acid peels can range from mild to moderate and may have harsher side effects on patients with extremely sensitive skin. However, these peels are great for exfoliating the outer layer of dead skin cells and work deep in the tissue layer. Glycolic acid peels improve the appearance of wrinkles and can help treat patients with oily skin.  

Salicylic Acid Peels for Acne-Prone Skin
