  • Superficial or Light peels are the mildest type of chemical peel and can be used on all skin types. These mild peels remove only a small part of the epidermis or outer layer of skin and are most often used to improve the appearance of fine lines, mild scarring and minimal hyperpigmentation.

    Superficial peels should be repeated every 2-3 weeks. A series of 6-8 consecutive treatments are recommended for best results. After 6-8 consecutive treatments, peels may be repeated monthly to maintain results.

    Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are the gentlest acids used in skin peels. Candee Skin offers the following superficial peels: all Glycolic Acid peels, all AHA Vitamin C peels, Salicylic 10% peel and TCA 10%.

  • Medium-depth skin peels penetrate further than superficial peels to remove the epidermis and some of the dermis, or underlying middle layer of skin. Medium peels are used to clear pores, reduce wrinkles, blemishes, hyperpigmentation, sun damage and precancerous growths.

  • Medium strength peels cause excessive pinkness for two to three and may not completely fade away until the skin has fully healed. New skin should appear within the first two weeks after treatment.

  • Medium-depth peels typically use TCA, as a main ingredient. The Jessner solution, a popular skin peel, contains a combination of resorcinol, salicylic acid and glycolic acid and may be layered to create a deep peel. Candee Skin offers the following Medium strength peels: Fusion, Jessner, Salicylic 20% and TCA 20%.

  • Deep skin peels cause a second-degree burn to the skin penetrating all the way to the subcutaneous, or third and deepest, layer of skin. They are used to treat melasma, deep wrinkles, scarring, sun damage and precancerous growths of the skin.

  • The skin may remain extremely red for weeks and up to 2 months. Full recovery can take several months. Petroleum jelly or another ointment may be applied after a deep peel to protect the skin. Deep peels are not done on darker skin types because they tend to bleach the skin (hypopigmentation).

  • TCA is the ingredient of choice for most deep peels, but the Jessner solution can be applied in layers to effect a deep peel. Candee Skin offers the following deep peels: TCA 30%, Salicylic 30% and Jessner (if layered).

Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA)

TCA is an effective chemical agent used to exfoliate and renew the skin on a superficial to deep level. TCA is commonly applied to the face, neck, hands and legs. In addition, TCA is also an excellent “spot treatment” and can be used to exclusively peel isolated areas of the skin.

The benefits of superficial TCA peels are many, but among the most notable is the ability to adjust the depth to fit the skin problem. As more coats are applied, the peel will get deeper, as the solution goes looking for protein to neutralize itself. The long-lasting results make it an ideal peel for those who prefer less peeling sessions at the cost of moderate downtime.

Glycolic Acid

also known as Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) is a chemical exfoliant originally sourced from sugarcane and used for beautification by ancient civilizations. Modern Glycolic peels are chemically engineered to make them more effective, standardized, and accessible to the masses.

Salicylic Acid is a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA)

Salicylic Acid includes a capacity for deep pore penetration that makes it an excellent choice for those prone to mild and moderate acne vulgaris. Dead skin and debris can plug the delicate pore resulting in blackheads, whiteheads and acne eruptions. Salicylic Acid’s winning combination of antiseptic and exfoliating properties promotes a clear, healthy complexion! A Salicylic Acid Peel will begin to purge clogged pores even after the first peel. As a result, acne breakouts may temporarily heighten. Nevertheless, the pore purification process should ultimately improve acne conditions and provide a clear path to beautiful skin! Salicylic Acid peels also provide marked improvements in skin tone, texture and clarity.
