Tag Archives: chemical peel

The holidays can be a stressful (and cold) time of year. Due to that, skincare is of the utmost importance. That’s why treating yourself to a chemical peel or HydraFacial is a must! So, which is best for you? We asked our aesthetician Jamie Popp and here’s what she had to say about the benefits of each: Chemical Peel OR HydraFacial Woman

Chemical Peel

  • Safe for all skin types
  • Enhances skin tone and texture
  • Great for anti-aging (fine lines and wrinkles)
  • Minimizes pore size
  • Helps with acne
  • Penetrates deep into the skin, working underneath the epidermis
  • Continues to help the skin even after treatment
  • One of the best treatment options for melasma
  • Perfect for skin sensitivity to rosacea
  • Aside from the face, it can also be used on the neck, chest, and hands

HydraFacial

  • Safe for all skin types
  • Cleanses deep into the pores
  • Offers a milder chemical peel
  • Lasting hydration
  • Leaves the skin dewy in appearance, with a noticeable glow
  • Kills acne bacteria
  • Exfoliates by removing dead skin cells

Overall, a HydraFacial is a much more comprehensive and in-depth treatment in comparison to a chemical peel. But, if you are looking to even your skin tone and remove dark spots, a chemical peel may be the better option.

Are you looking to improve the look and appearance of your skin? Then a chemical peel may be for you! In this treatment, a chemical solution is gently applied to the face, neck, or hands leading the skin to exfoliate and peel off. The new skin is typically much smoother and less wrinkled than the skin that was there prior.
