Want to hear something scary?

Chemical Peels! Just kidding chemical peels aren’t scary or at least they shouldn’t be. I know most women immediately think of Samantha Jones in Sex and The City when they hear the term chemical peel. The episode that shows our girl in the aftermath of some ‘freshening up’, I’ll admit seeing it was frightening. Her skin was bright red and raw, who would want to go through that? Not me for one. That Sunday night on HBO scarred a generation of women. Making them to afraid of getting a peel themselves. So, let me take the scary out of chemical peels and explain the different types and what to expect when getting one.

1. Very Superficial Peels

Does not penetrate beyond the top layer (Stratum Granulosum)

Safe for home use

Great for treating acne, blackheads, fine lines and hyperpigmentation

This will keep your skin looking fresh and young

Fantastic to use as a prep for a future chemical peel

2. Superficial Peels

Penetrate past the top layer to the Basal layer

This is the type of peel performed by most estheticians

Little to no down time

Will only experience slight pinking of the skin and a few flakes

Perfect for those suffering from acne and/or seeing signs of aging

3. Medium Depth Peels

Typically performed by in a medical setting

Penetrates the upper layers down to the Papillary Dermis

Able to treat superficial scars, sun damage and melasma

You will need to hide out inside for a few days

Expect lots of actual peeling 24-48 hours later

* This is most likely what Samantha had done!

4. Deep Peels

Performed only by a medical professional!

This peel will reach the Reticular Dermis

For severe scars, deep wrinkles and dark photoaging

You will be topically numbed and /or put under for this procedure

Expect to be wrapped up like a mummy and I would expect a new face!
