What to Know About Chemical Peels and the Different Types

What Are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are cosmetic procedures that involve exfoliating the skin, getting rid of dead cells, and stimulating the growth of new, healthier skin. At NuBody Concepts, we understand that every person’s skin is unique. To cater to different skin concerns, we offer various chemical peel options. Whether you want to address fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone, or sun damage, our customized treatments can help you achieve your desired results. 

Are There Different Types of Chemical Peels?

Yes! Every person is unique, so their skincare and facial rejuvenation treatments should also be unique. Here are three popular types of chemical peels

  • Light chemical peels: These are the ideal choice for those with mild skin imperfections. They are gentle on the skin and exfoliate the outer layer, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. These peels are suitable for people who want minimal downtime and are often recommended for improving skin texture and reducing the appearance of fine lines.
  • Medium chemical peels: This range penetrates deeper into the skin and targets moderate skin imperfections such as age spots, uneven pigmentation, and moderate wrinkles. They may require a slightly longer recovery than light peels but offer more noticeable results.
  • Deep chemical peels: We recommend this level of chemical peel for patients with severe skin concerns. This chemical peel penetrates the middle layer of the skin, addressing deep wrinkles, scars, and sun damage. Although these peels have a longer recovery time, the transformative effects are often worth the investment. 

So, we’ve got different chemical peels—but what is the most effective chemical peel? These different types of chemical peels each serve a specific purpose. The most effective chemical peel depends on your skin concerns and the desired outcome. At NuBody Concepts, our experienced practitioners will assess your skin condition and recommend the most suitable peel tailored to your needs.

Targeted Benefits for Various Skin Concerns

Chemical peels offer a range of benefits that go beyond just surface-level improvements. Light peels are perfect for refreshing and brightening the skin, while medium peels are great for addressing moderate imperfections. Deep peels, on the other hand, can provide drastic results for those looking for complete skin renewal. 

Here are some benefits of chemical peels you can expect: 

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Fades age spots, discoloration, and hyperpigmentation
  • Stimulates collagen production for firmer and more youthful-looking skin
  • Smooths out rough, uneven skin texture
  • Minimizes the appearance of pores
  • Treats acne and acne scars
  • Enhances the effectiveness of skincare products by allowing for deeper penetration

Preparing for a Chemical Peel and Recovery

Whether you’re considering a chemical peel for the first time or make routine visits to the Nashville or Memphis MedSpa, following the pre- and post-care instructions for any cosmetic procedure is essential. Before a chemical peel, your aesthetician may advise you to do the following:

  • Stop using certain skincare products, such as retinoids and exfoliants, for a few days or up to a week before the peel.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure and use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • Avoid waxing, threading, or using depilatory creams on your face for at least two weeks before the peel.

After getting a chemical peel, your skin needs some time to heal, and proper post-treatment care is necessary for a smooth recovery process. After a chemical peel, your licensed aesthetician may provide you with instructions like: 

  • Avoid exposure to the sun and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • Refrain from picking, scratching, or peeling off flaking or peeling skin.
  • Do not use any exfoliating products for at least a week after the peel.
  • Regularly moisturize your skin to keep it hydrated and aid in healing.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise or activities that lead to excessive sweating for a few days after the peel.

At NuBody Concepts, our team will guide you through every step, ensuring you have a comfortable experience and achieve the best possible outcome.

Professional vs. At-Home Chemical Peel Options

At-home chemical peels are available over the counter. These products offer a one-sized solution for facial rejuvenation. However, they cannot match the expertise and precision provided by a professional treatment at NuBody Concepts. Our skilled practitioners use advanced techniques and medical-grade products for optimal safety and efficacy. By selecting a professional chemical peel, you can enjoy a personalized approach that minimizes the risk of complications associated with at-home treatments.

Choosing the Right Peel for Your Skin Type

There are different types of chemical peels, and choosing the right one based on your skin type is crucial for achieving the desired outcome. But you don’t have to figure it out by yourself! At NuBody Concepts, our licensed aestheticians thoroughly assess your skin type, concerns, and goals. This personalized approach ensures that the selected peel is tailored to your needs, resulting in an even more satisfying outcome.
