Exploring Chemical Peels for Acne Treatment

What are chemical peels?

Chemical peels refer to the application of unique contact-safe acids that provide gentle exfoliating benefits to your complexion. From alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) to beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), Vitamin A acids, and trichloroacetic acid (TCA), each facial treatment offers unique benefits and can be used to target different complaints. Some of the recommended applications and benefits of these acids include: 

  • AHA Acids include lactic acid and glycolic acid peels and can be completed with very little to no downtime. Treating acne scars, environmental damage, and more, AHA acids can brighten and plump the skin.
  • BHA Acids include salicylic acids that can target acne, whiteheads, blackheads, and oily skin. A highly exfoliating acid, BHA products are still the most often preferred choice for clients with sensitive skin.
  • Vitamin A peels are ideal for minimising the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and UV damage. Exfoliating benefits achieved from Vitamin A application typically last for a few days.
  • TCA Acids target the deepest skin layers and can help reduce pore size, acne scarring, skin pigmentation, and fine lines.
     

Each client undergoes a consultation with one of our specialists to determine which treatment will best suit your condition, and what to expect after your peel.

Can they treat acne scars, wrinkles, or damaged skin?

If you’re suffering from congestion, acne scarring, environmental damage, or want to target fine lines, chemical peels may help exfoliate the skin and reduce the visibility of damage. With further added benefits of hydrating the area and boosting elastin and collagen, the right treatment for you can help reverse the signs of damage and aging.

Tailored to your needs by our qualified consultants, the following common complaints can often be addressed: 

  • Acne Scars AHA and BHA acids can reduce acne scar visibility depending on the level of skin sensitivity
  • Sun Damage AHA, BHA, and TCA acids can be used to reduce environmental damage
  • Fine Lines TCA acid can help remove dead skin cells and encourage new skin growth

Do chemical peels hurt?

Each person will have a different experience with skin acids and chemical peels. We have observed that most patients report little to no discomfort during their peel while some notice a slight tingling sensation.

If you have any concerns or discomfort, please speak with your practitioner during the consultation.
