Chemical peels of the face are a great way to achieve rejuvenation, reduce the visibility of wrinkles and improve your overall appearance. Depending upon your concern, you might benefit from a variety of different facial peels such as deep chemical peels, medium chemical peels, blue peels and micro peels.
Deep chemical facial peels typically employ the chemical phenol to achieve a very deep peel. The recovery is longer, but the effects on wrinkles are dramatic. The overall improvement to skin and appearance are usually more than dermabrasion, laser or other peels can give. The downside is that it can affect face pigment permanently.

Medium chemical peels are peels that use a variety of chemicals including TCA, Jessner’s solution, glycolic or salicylic acid. These peels are unlikely to discolor facial skin and do provide some improvement in fine wrinkles, but do not influence acne scars or deep wrinkles.

Blue Peels use Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and are a type of medium chemical peel, but have built-in safety features that enable nurses to perform them. After a blue peel, you’ll notice improvement in your skin texture and complexion. Visit the page on Blue peels to learn more.
Micro peels are the lightest peels and can be performed using a variety of different substances, depending on your skin type. They have a more gradual effect on superficial wrinkles, and do little or nothing for medium and deep wrinkles. Their advantage is that they impose no recovery, help reduce pore size and brighten your complexion. Visit the Micro peel page to learn more.
