Chemical Peels or Skin Needling – Which Treatment is Right for Me?

Chemical Peels and Skin Needling

Chemical Peels and skin needling are a less invasive option to laser skin resurfacing and can be a great treatment for several common skin issues. Both treatments, when applied by an experienced cosmetic provider, can have excellent results – but which treatment is right for you?

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel removes layers of dead skin and acts as a supercharged exfoliator, revealing the smooth and fresh skin underneath. The new skin is less wrinkled and more evenly coloured giving the face a fresh and rejuvenated appearance. Peels are also great at treating:

  • Sun damage
  • Acne scarring
  • Pigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles.

How long does the treatment take?

We usually allocate 30 minutes for a chemical peel appointment, however depending on the area(s) you’re having treated this may take a little longer.

Results can vary depending on the strength of the peel and skin type. Lighter peels can last from 1-2 months whereas stronger peel results can be seen for up to 6 months. Repeated treatments are often recommended to maintain results.

Skin Needling

Skin needling treatments usually involve running a small device over the skin to create microscopic punctures. These microinjuries then stimulate the production of collagen under the skin. Increased collagen production promotes healing and cell turnover, giving a more youthful complexion. Skin needling is great at reducing the appearance of common skin complaints such as:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Fine line and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Hyper-pigmentation and dark spots
