Chemical Peels Vs. Microneedling: Choosing the Best Option for You

  • Post category:Blog

When you want to pamper yourself and your skin, there are many options from which to choose. From facials to chemical peels to more aggressive anti-aging treatments, there is something out there for everyone. Both chemical peels and microneedling help to clear the skin and refresh its health and youth. Here is what you need to know about these two procedures to choose the right one for you.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are one way to exfoliate the skin, which cleans it and also gives it a fresh new look. The chemicals are painted onto the face for a brief time. Afterwards, within a day or two your skin will start peeling. This cleans the pores very well. The peeling also clears away dead and dull skin and triggers the body’s natural healing response so that a new, fresh, youthful layer of skin takes form. Chemical peels are great for reducing the signs of aging and giving your skin a new lease on life.


Microneedling is similar to exfoliation, but in a different way. With microneedling, a device is used to pierce the skin in a myriad of tiny holes. These small holes exfoliate the skin and trigger the body’s natural healing response. This boosts collagen production, and collagen is the necessary component for youthful and healthy skin.

Some people opt to combine chemical peels or microneedling with other treatments. Getting a facial or having nutrients and serums applied to the face after microneedling will help your skin accept these nutrients much more effectively. 

Whether you choose a chemical peel or microneedling to replenish your skin depends on the condition of your skin and your aesthetic goals. If you want to have a treatment that will cleanse the pores and give you clear fresh skin, a chemical peel is for you. If you want to boost collagen production for fuller, more supple skin, microneedling is the answer.
