Your facial features are likely what people notice first about you, yet so many men and women struggle with complexion issues. Facial peels can help everything from an uneven skin tone to acne and wrinkles; however, they should always be performed by an experienced professional.

In this article, we discuss the different types of facial peels, the skin benefits, and what you should know before you get one.

Benefits of Facial Peels

Chemical facial peels typically involve a skin-safe acid solution that is used to remove the outermost layers of skin. The main reasons to get a peel is to treat skin conditions like acne, sun spots, other blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.

Peels exfoliate and remove the outer layers of dead skin to reveal a healthier and more beautiful texture and tone underneath.  People who are good candidates for facial peels are men and women who have a skin condition but are in good overall health and understand which type of peel is right for them.

Types of Facial Peels

At Aura Wellness Spa, we offer several different types of facial peels to accommodate various skin types and skin needs. Here are some of our most popular facial spa treatment options to choose from.

Glycolic Resurfacer

This is our most popular peel, and it works by removing dead skin cells and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This peel is great for reducing fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne-prone skin.

Jessner Resurfacer

If you have mild-to-severe acne issues, consider getting this peel to target deep-rooted acne and scar problems. This peel goes beyond the power of the Glycolic Resurfacer peel to safely and effectively remove the top layers of the epidermis.

Crystal Peel

One particularly attractive and progressive peel is our crystal peel, which is non-invasive and a form of microdermabrasion treatment. With this peel, we use natural mineral crystals to gently remove the surface layers of skin to reveal smoother and fresher skin to emerge from underneath.

Considerations About Facial Peels

Understandably, many people have questions about which facial peel is best for them, what the recovery time is, and how many treatments it takes to see a noticeable difference.

With a glycolic resurfacer peel, for example, there is no downtime, and you’ll get the best results with a series of six treatments. However, since the Jessner Resurfacer peel targets deeply-rooted skin problems, you can expect a post-peel downtime of seven to 10 days. Again, with this treatment, most people notice the best results after six treatments. For maximum effectiveness, it is best to avoid smoking at least a few weeks before and after you get a facial peel.

Facial Massage New York City

Many people like to get a facial massage New York City before getting a skin peel to relax the skin and allow the it to be more receptive to the treatment. Our facial massage New York offerings include our 30-minute mini facial, the 60-minute Aura signature facial, as well as the amazing 30-minute pressure point head massage add-on.

Whether it’s anti-aging facials, microdermabrasion or facial skin rejuvenation from acne, rosacea, pigmentation and scars, Aura Wellness Spa has the best skin estheticians to help you put your best face forward. Contact us today to achieve the look and feel you’ve been dreaming of!
