Both micro peels and mild chemical peels can help your face look younger by getting rid of dead skin cells and encouraging the growth of new skin cells. But there are so many ways to care for your skin that it can be hard to choose the best one. 

So, why not choose one that gives your skin two great treatments that leave it looking perfect? Micro peels can be made to fit almost any type of skin, leaving everyone’s skin glowing and smooth. 

Yet, does it give the same results as a chemical peel? Walnut Creek Aesthetics is here to help you discover the answer to this problem. Check this blog post for more details. 

How does a MicroPeel work?

For many reasons, MicroPeel is one of the most popular skin treatments. It’s a treatment for the face that doesn’t involve surgery or recovery time. Glycolic acid is used in most MicroPeels to remove the top layer of skin. 

Don’t worry; even though this sounds serious, it isn’t too painful and has few side effects. The goal of the peel is to get rid of the damaged layer of skin and show the younger, healthier layer below. The candidates can tell right away because their faces will look much brighter.

Chemical peels like these at Walnut Creek Aesthetics don’t hurt much and are safe for all skin types. Each peel is customizable, brightens and evens out all skin tones, smooths skin texture, helps acne-prone skin by preventing future breakouts, treats dark spots and unwanted pigmentation, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and builds collagen and elastin to fight age and firm the skin.

That means you can ensure safe, gentle, and effective treatment for your skin with our treatment. Our doctors are guaranteed professional and skilled when performing micro peel treatment for your skin. Contact us to know more about how we can help you with your concerns. 

MicroPeel Benefits

MicroPeel can help you make your life better. It works mainly with the following skin issues:

  • Dull skin
  • Removal of dead, dry skin
  • Fine lines
  • It also helps with mild acne

You can think of it as a new start after shedding your old skin. The fact that there is no operation is also a big plus for this treatment. 

This is also great therapy for people afraid of needles or cuts. Making your skin look better is more natural than using syringes or injectables.

Also, the process doesn’t hurt. That means there’s no need for you to be put to sleep. And usually, patients don’t feel anything while o operation. Though you might sometimes feel slightly burning or itching, this goes away after the treatment. 

So, when you leave the practice, you can return to your everyday life. The only side effect of a MicroPeel is that your skin will look brighter and fresher.

Micropeel vs. Chemical Peel: Similar Effects? 

Micro peels are better than regular chemical peels because they combine two treatments. During a micro peel treatment, your skin is chemically exfoliated and given a chemical peel. 

A carefully made solution is put on your face with chemical peels and then washed off. The rough, damaged top layer of skin is taken off, revealing a new layer of smooth, healthy skin and encouraging the body to make more collagen.

So definitely gives off the same vibe, but micro peels provide better and more satisfying results! 

How Micropeel Can Be Ideal For Your Skin

Now that you know what a micro peel is and how it works, you might wonder how it can help your skin. Because the treatment involves three different steps, it has a lot of great benefits. 

Here are some of the usual that happen after a few micro peel treatments:

  • It makes hyperpigmentation and other skin flaws look better.
  • It makes your skin soft.
  • It speeds up the body’s natural process of peeling
  • It alters the texture of your skin
  • It leaves your skin looking radiant
  • Over time, it makes your skin firmer by causing your body to produce more collagen.

We recommend two sets of 4 to 6 treatments annually for the best results. Still, all things will depend on your provider. So ensure to consult first before hopping into this treatment.

Will MicroPeel work for me?

MicroPeels are great for people who want ideal facials that don’t hurt. They are also suitable if you have any skin concerns already mentioned. It can help eliminate lines or any conditions you may wish to remove.

Micro Peels are ideal if you want a more robust option for most beauty products. If you’ve never experienced Chemical Peel before, we also think you should get a MicroPeel. Before moving on to peels with more harsh chemicals, this is the best place to start.

So, how should I prepare? 

Micro peels are simple treatments that need no pre-treatment care. So, most experts advise to start doing this following one week before their treatment:

  • Stop smoking (to improve circulation of the blood to your skin)
  • Please don’t use any skincare products with aspirin or salicylic acid.
  • Stop using any everyday skin care products with glycolic acid in their content.
  • Don’t go under the sun for too long.
  • No injections of collagen
  • No waxing of the face

How can I recover?

It’s easy to get better after a micro peel. Again, as we always say, you should feel no pain after getting a peel. Most patients don’t feel pain, so you’ll eventually feel the same. It may seem like itching and other irritating factors if you feel irritation after your peel.
