Your Perfect Peel

Chemical peels are no different from any shoe, bag, or top you wear. There may be more than one that works, but it is always better to find the one that is absolutely perfect for you. With that said, how do you find the perfect one?

Types of Peels

To start off, there are many different types of chemical peels available to you. While they all have the ability to enhance the beauty and softness of your skin, they often vary in chemical makeup as well as acidic depth. In this, we mean that the chemical peels can range from simple surface peels for softer skin, or deeper acid peels to remove scarring, sun damage, and other extensive damage to the skin. Some of the chemical peels include:

While we could go on for pages about each type of peel and the benefits it provides, we’d like to save some time for those who already know about the different types of chemical peels. Therefore, if you would like to find out more information about a certain peel and what is does, feel free to click on a peel above which will take to you to a page specifically dedicated to that type of peel.

Chemical Peel Strengths

Now sadly there is a misconception going around that stronger is better. At Dermalure Skincare Professionals we are here to inform you that this is not necessarily the case. In fact, we highly advocate that you do your research before applying any strength of acid to your face. In simplest terms, stronger acids simply mean that they will take away layers of skin off your face. Stronger acids CAN be good when you have tougher skin that needs to be torn away to get down to the soft skin underneath, but It is important to start out on a milder acid that does not peel away skin any deeper than you want. While this process of trying out varying degrees of acidity may take slightly longer to find the correct balance of strength and safety, it is exponentially more beneficial to take it slow. You only get one face, and you wouldn’t want to harm it by applying acids that could potentially cause damage.

Consulting your doctor

While it is possible to order chemical peels over the Internet, we still highly encourage you to gain the opinion of your regular dermatologist when applying a chemical peel. They have your medical records and have experienced the good and the bad when it comes to your skin. They should be willing to recommend a certain level of acidity strength and let you know what might be the best level to start with. They will also know how your skin has reacted to various treatments in the past so they can let you know if you might happen to be allergic to a certain type of chemical peel.

Lactic Acid Peel, Glycolic Acid Peel

Lactic Acid Peel Compared to Glycolic Acid Peel

A lactic acid peel is very similar to a glycolic acid peel.  Both natural peels will help reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles and discoloration. And, both peels will boost the natural production of collagen and elastin to noticeably improve the appearance of skin.

Lactic Acid and Glycolic Acid Skin Peels Explained

A glycolic acid peel is a type of Keratolytic Therapy.  It is an organic skin peel derived from natural sugars found in common plants such as sugarcane, sugar beets, pineapple, grapes, and cantaloupe.  Glycolic acid easily penetrates deeper into the skin as it is the smallest alpha hydroxy acid available.  This peel has a notable effect of keratinization of the skin as well as the increased formation of keratin elastin, and collagen.  In other words, glycolic acid is an organic peel that is highly effective at removing old layers of skin and promoting natural skin rejuvenation.  In addition, glycolic acid has been used to treat skin disorders such as eczema.

A lactic acid peel is a more mild skin treatment.  Like glycolic acid peels, lactic acid peels are derived from natural ingredients.  Lactic acid is naturally created by the body when breaking down and rebuilding tissues.  Most people are familiar with the burn created by lactic acid when working out.  Similar to glycolic acid, lactic acid is able to break down old layers of skin and promote natural skin rejuvenation.

How to Determine Which Peel is Right for You

It is important to assess the condition of your skin when determining what the best skin peel would be for you.  Often, it is helpful to consult with a physician to accurately determine the current condition of your skin and the least invasive option that is likely to yield the desired results in the desired amount of time.  Getting the right peel can help improve the overall appearance of your skin by reducing signs of aging and promoting the growth of newer, softer skin.
