Let’s take a look at some of the most popular chemical peels and their benefits.
1. Glycolic AcidThis is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and is made up of the smallest molecules compared to others.
Do not let the molecule size fool you though, glycolic acid is a powerhouse in terms of performance and one of the most popular choices. This acid exfoliates the outermost layers of skin but also has the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin and stimulate cell turnover. Glycolic acid works from the inside out which provides a plumper appearance. Think lighten, brighten and tighten.
2. Lactic AcidYes you guessed it, this acid is milk-derived and is also an AHA. Lactic acid is wonderful for hydration, brightening and the best choice for those with sensitive skin. This is one of the more gentle peels and a great option for beginners or those who are not a candidate for more aggressive peels.
3. Salicylic AcidThis is a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) and is derived from willow bark. This acid is made up of a larger molecular size which means it works on the outer layers of skin. This acid is antiseptic and anti-inflammatory making it the top choice when dealing with acne, redness and oily skin. We like to think of this acid like Pac-Man running along the surface of the skin gobbling up dead skin cells and breaking through oil.
