Skin peels FAQs
There are different skin peels available for particular skin types. These come in different strengths from mild to strong. In recent years, companies have developed peels that are safe for all types of ethnic skins. The darker your complexion, the more careful you must be in selecting the correct peel.
Some peels can only be used in a doctor's office, while others can be used at home. Most address hyperpigmentation, skin texture, fine lines together or separately.

It lifts the dead cells of the surface of your skin, which stimulates reproduction of the underlying cells. It requires no down-time and is strictly an in-office treatment.

This is excellent for fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage, hyperpigmentation, acne and acne scarring. Safe for all ethnic skin types.
This the deepest of the 3 peels. It penetrates in the deeper layers of the epidermis and produces the most amount of exfoliation. Only use on ethnic skin types if they can well tolerate this peel.
Each peel is designed to treat skin conditions from mild to severe including photo-damaged skin, fine lines and hyperpigmentation, acne and acne scarring. This is for only in-office treatment.
Glycolic acid generally contains alpha-hydroxy, beta-hydroxy and other natural acids. They can be grouped by their strengths. Those that are office-only are 35%-70% in strength. Those that can be used at home only range between 10%-20% acids.
