Which Peel is Best for Your Skin Concern?

By [email protected] 2nd August 2022 Category: Advice

Skin peels use the exfoliating and brightening power of naturally occurring acids and active substances. The procedure encourages the synthesis of collagen and new cells, revealing skin that is younger-looking, cleaner, and brighter.

Peels are intended to exfoliate your skin and induce cell renewal, which is how your skin will regenerate itself. Additionally, they encourage the skin’s own collagen formation, which helps to lessen the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and blemishes.


The best skin peel for your specific skin concerns

The best chemical peel for acne

The best chemical peel for you will depend on your skin type, acne history, and desired outcomes. The clarity and mono mandelic chemical peels from Medik8 as well as a Jessner peel are among the best chemical peels for acne.

The best chemical peel for acne scars, scars and pores

Mandelic acid-based chemical peels work well for treating big pores and scarring. Try out the Medik8 Rewind, Universal, or the Mono Mandelic peel. Additionally, a Mandelic peel works great for your first skin peel.

The best chemical peel for blackheads

The oil glands can be effectively targeted by BHA salicylic acid. As salicylic acid is oil soluble, it allows it to completely penetrate your pores and relieve congestion, making this type of peel ideal for somebody with congested skin. The Medik8 Clarity eliminates accumulated oils that result in comedones (blackheads and whiteheads). Additionally, it contains anti-inflammatory qualities that can soothe irritated breakouts.

The best chemical peel for pigmentation

TCA peels are a suitable option for people with pigmentation problems since they are a medium-depth peel that penetrates more deeply than glycolic or salicylic acid peels. For people with extremely sensitive skin, TCA peels aren’t always recommended; consult your dermatologist before booking one.

The best chemical peel for hyperpigmentation

A Glycolic peel can be your best option if you want to brighten up the ageing dullness on your skin. One of the mildest peels, it is excellent for skin hyperpigmentation. Fruit acids are used to create this type of peel, which sloughs off dead skin cells by penetrating the top layer of skin.

The best chemical peel for wrinkles

Medik8’s Rewind peel is a targeted formula that helps to boost collagen production in the face to make your fine lines and wrinkles look less noticeable. A peel that targets crow’s feet, the Eye Reveal will get rid of ageing signs around the eyes.

The best chemical peel for stretch marks

Chemical peels are excellent for enhancing skin texture and erasing many skin damage, including stretch marks. In general, a TCA skin peel or a Glycolic skin peel are two of the best chemical peels for stretch marks. Stretch marks can be diminished and faded using either of these peels.
