Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that uses acids to exfoliate the outer layers of the skin and make it appear younger and healthier. A chemical peel is a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t involve any incisions or surgery. The chemical peels are also known as a chemical facelift, as they help rejuvenate the skin.

What is the purpose of a chemical peel?

A chemical peel helps remove the old skin cells and leaves the new ones on the surface. It helps rejuvenate the skin, leading to a reduction in wrinkles, blemishes, and other signs of aging.

You can get an aesthetic chemical peel from Love Medical Spa to give you flawless-looking skin.

What are the different types of chemical peels?

There are three main types of chemical peels:

  • Salicylic Acid Peel: It is a mild acid that helps remove the dead layers of skin and gives your skin a bright and even tone. The treatment can be performed at home or in a medical facility.
  • Glycolic Acid Peel: Glycolic acid is an organic acid that helps exfoliate your skin by removing dead cells from its surface. This type of peel helps with fine lines and wrinkles on your face. 
  • Lactic Acid Peel: This type of chemical peel is used to treat acne and hyperpigmentation on your skin. It typically requires more than one session for complete results.
