Want Rejuvenated Skin, Without the Burn? Try a Professional Facial Peel!
Updated: Mar 30
Does your skin need a refresh? Does it look dull, dry, and discolored? Does a layer of dead skin cells prevent your skincare products from getting to your healthy layer?
A professional facial peel can give your skin a fresh glow because it’s able to penetrate deeper than a typical at-home treatment. But many people are afraid of the negative side effects of harsh chemical peels. With the facial peels we use at Lulu Tru, you don't have to worry about that! In this article, we’ll explain the benefits of a professional facial peel, how it is different from a chemical peel, and how often you should be getting this treatment.
What are the benefits of a professional facial peel?
A professional facial peel has more active ingredients than an at-home treatment, which will result in more immediate and better results. That means an even greater concentration of results-driven ingredients to kickstart your skin’s renewal process. Lactic acid, a common ingredient in our facial peels, gently breaks down the glue that holds dead skin cells together and dissolves superficial surface buildup. This reveals the fresh, young skin cells underneath.
These products must be administered by a trained professional, like your esthetician at Lulu Tru. Although there are many different types of facial peels, most of them gently exfoliate the skin and give even the dullest complexion a brand new glow. A professional peel helps to resurface the skin by removing dead skin cells. This results in a plethora of benefits, including:
Reduces appearance of pigmentation
Improves appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Promotes collagen and blood flow
Corrects discoloration from scars, age spots, and sun damage
Brighter, more radiant skin
An added bonus from shedding dead skin cells is increased absorption rates of future products. With no dead skin cells blocking their way, the active ingredients in the rest of your routine can penetrate more deeply.
What is the difference between a facial peel and a chemical peel?
Some people may picture a burned, red face when they think of a peel. But this image would be a result of a chemical peel. If completed incorrectly, some people may experience redness, swelling, changes in skin color, and scarring after receiving a chemical peel.
That’s why we use facial peels that are specially formulated with alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which are some of the gentlest acids for your skin. These facial peels are packed with active ingredients to resurface and revitalize skin, while remaining calm enough to hydrate and soothe. And unlike more extreme chemical peels, professional lactic acid peels require little to no downtime. No having to hide at home for days after your treatment!
We love the Mangosteen Lactic Pro Peel 10%, a professional-only lactic acid peel by Eminence Organics. This peel provides a complete surface and pore-refining treatment by removing impurities and dead skin cells while minimizing pores and smoothing the look of the skin. This revitalizing peel is self-neutralizing and non-irritating, even for sensitive skin.
How often should you get a facial peel?
Anybody looking to rejuvenate and brighten their skin should get a facial peel. People with sensitive skin should consult with their esthetician on the best plan for their skin. In most cases, a professional facial peel is recommended every four to six weeks to see the best improvement in skin texture and appearance.
