How a Chemical Peel, Corrective Facials and Laser Facials Differ From Each Other
If you are looking to improve the appearance of your facial skin, including reducing acne, tightening up your facial skin, improving the overall tone, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and reducing the appearance of sun or age spots, you may be thinking about booking a facial spa treatment. There are many different facial treatments, including a chemical peel, corrective facials and laser facials. Here is more information about each facial type and how they each differ from each other.
A chemical peel involves applying a series of chemicals to the skin, which cause the outermost layer of your skin to bubble up and eventually peel away. While this may sound unpleasant, it is generally nothing more uncomfortable than having a sunburn on your face that causes your skin to peel off. Removing the outermost layer of your skin reveals a fresh new layer of skin that is generally less damaged, less wrinkled and in better, more youthful condition. A chemical peel is not something that should be done often, as it can lead to scarring or skin damage when done too frequently.
Corrective facials are basic, general facials. They typically involve cleansing the face, exfoliating the facial skin, extracting whiteheads and blackheads, massaging the skin and then using a mask and/or moisturizer product, depending on whether your skin is dry or oily. The products used during corrective facials can be more geared toward improving acne, improving fine lines or wrinkles or moisturizing dry skin. Corrective facials should be repeated every month or two to help correct the facial issues you are facing.
Laser facials utilize lasers on your skin to help improve various types of skin conditions. Some types of layers can work to even out pigmentation in your skin, helping to reduce dark spots or age spots. Other types of lasers can increase collagen production, which can help to make you look younger, while also naturally smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines. Other types of lasers are able to target the pores, helping to remove bacteria from the pores and decrease the size of large pores.
A chemical peel, corrective facials and laser facials can all work to improve your facial skin. However, the benefits of each type of treatment vary, and who they are ideal for can also vary. If you are unsure about which type of facial may be ideal for you, based on your skin type, skin problems and your overall desired results, the professionals at NanaBella Spa can help you determine which treatment may be best for you.
