Understanding the Different Types of Chemical Peels

You might have age spots, freckles, acne marks, or other skin discolouration you want to reduce. A chemical peel can help you with these skin concerns: it is a skin treatment that uses chemical solutions to repair and improve skin texture and tone. 

Chemical peels are a highly personalised procedure, depending on your skin condition. Laser Clinics Australia discusses important details in understanding different chemical peels and knowing which one is right for you. 

How does it work?

Our professional Cosmetic Grade Peels are clinical treatments that apply a safe chemical solution to the skin's surface. The peel penetrates the layers of the skin and target cells that can treat several skin concerns. 

Do take note that redness, inflammation and mild to moderate peeling are common side effects for 1 – 5 days post peel. But you don’t need to worry; these skin reactions are all part of the process of getting the best results.

Which type of cosmetic face peel should I use?

  1. Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA) Peels / Glycolic Peels 

If you have sensitive skin, this chemical peel is right for you as this micro-exfoliating treatment is designed to exfoliate, soothe and hydrate dry, flaking skin gently.

Our AHA Enzymatic Peel uses fruit enzymes to remove dead skin cells by breaking down the keratin formed in the upper layers of the skin, which leaves your skin fresh and smooth.

  1. Combination of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA)

This cosmetic peel is perfect for individuals with skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, acne, superficial acne scarring, and congestion.

Our Peel Accelerator is a powerful blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA), which chemically exfoliates and resurfaces the skin's upper layer. It improves skin texture and reduces oil production and acne present on the skin.

  1. Retinoid Peels 

If your skin concern is related to skin ageing, stubborn pigmentation, scarring and acne, a retinoic acid peel or ageless peel is right for you. 

Our Ageless Peel is a medium superficial peel that contains Retinol which penetrates deep into the dermis layer of the skin to help neutralise free radicals and improves collagen production, improving the appearance of the skin.

  1. Purple Peel

If you’re struggling with cystic acne, stubborn pigmentation, and concerned with ageing, Purple Peel is the solution for you.

Our Purple Peel contains a combination of AHAs such as Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid and BHAS such as Salicylic and Mandelic Acid. This cosmetic peel penetrates deep into the skin to increase cell turnover providing overall skin rejuvenation. 

For the best results, it is better to go to an experienced skincare professional who can give you a personalised cosmetic peel treatment. Laser Clinic Australia offers affordable and effective Cosmetic Grade Peels designed for your specific skin concern.
