Alpha, Delta, or Gamma? How to Choose a Face Peel

For smooth, soft, younger-looking skin, explore face peels. And you don’t have to choose between an alpha, delta, or gamma peel on your own, the skincare professionals at Face Reflections will inform you of the right match for your objectives during a skincare consultation.

After all, the facial peel choice for a teenager who is troubled by breakouts will be different than the choice for an adult seeking to correct hyperpigmentation.

Improve Skin Texture with Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs)

Alpha peels use water-soluble acids derived from fruits, milks, and sugars; these AHAs work by boosting hydration and revealing softer, smoother skin. A milder choice, compared to beta and gamma peels, alpha are often the best choice for people with dry or sensitive skin.

Eliminate Breakouts with Beta-Hydroxy Acids (BHAs)

Beta peels feature BHAs, oil-soluble acids that unclog pores. Salicylic acid is a commonly used BHA, for example. Because they penetrate pores, BHAs help to combat oily or acne-prone skin and can reduce the appearance of blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples.

Heal Sun Damage with Gamma Acids (GHAs)

Gamma peels are an advanced peel using GHAs. Stronger than AHAs and BHAs, GHAs work by dissolving the intracellular components that hold dead skin cells together. Gamma peels are an attractive option for individuals who are troubled by signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, or sun damage.

Facial peels can be an effective choice, resulting in beautiful skin, but always consult with an esthetician before exploring a new face peel treatment. A professional will assess your skin type and advise you on which peel is right for you.

Which facial peel will provide the results you need? You don't have to guess, the professionals at Face Reflections can analyze your skin, inform you of your options, and make your skin goals a reality. Book your free consultation today.
