Find out what the 3 types of chemical peels are.
Superficial: This is the least invasive type of chemical peel. It is deemed superficial because the effects of the chemical used do not go under the outer layer of your skin. It only affects the superficial layer of your face. It is the mildest form and is generally safe for all skin types.
Medium: This type of chemical peel burns the skin at a deeper level. It is used for more serious skin ailments and is a more aggressive treatment that goes deeper into the skin. It is most popular for the treatment of acne scars, wrinkles, and facial lines. These can be difficult to treat which is why the medium type chemical peel gets deep enough to counteract these lines and indentations.
Deep: This is the most aggressive type of chemical peel and is used to correct the most difficult and stubborn forms of skin deformities. These peels are reserved just for the face and are usually only performed once due to their very strong components.
