Which type of peel can be performed by an esthetician in a skin care center?

Superficial Chemical Peels (AKA “Lunchtime Peels”)

Superficial chemical peels are some of the more popular treatments offered by estheticians. During a peel, an alpha hydroxy acid (most often glycolic, lactic, or salicylic acid) is used to rapidly exfoliate the skin and give it a healthy glow.

Can estheticians do jessner peels?

Our estheticians can help with more superficial skin concerns using lighter peels, such as alpha hydroxy acid peels, and our dermatologists perform Jessner and TCA peels for more dramatic results.

How painful is a deep chemical peel?

What treatment would be ideal for a client whose skin is aging?

Will a chemical peel remove dark spots?

Peels can be used to improve the appearance of acne scars, melasma, sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, and several other conditions. They can also be used to lighten dark spots. Chemical peels for lightening dark spots use chemical agents that enable the removal of the skin pigment melanin.
