We all wonder how celebrities can regularly achieve a dewy glow on the red carpet. It has become clear to us now that getting facial peels and other treatments are the main reason for celebrities’ radiant glow. As such, here are the different sorts of facial peels available on the market, and celebrities’ favourite picks on chemical peels.
Types of Facial Peels
As mentioned above, there are different sorts of facial peels available for consumers:
1. Deep peels:
TCA Peel: A TCA Peel (trichloroacetic acid) is a peel that dries up the surface layer of the skin. This allows it to peel off to reveal newer, healthier skin. This peeling effect takes up to a couple of days or a few weeks. TCA Peels are ideal for those who are suffering from melasma, hyperpigmentation, and/or acne scarring. Deep peels penetrate into deeper layers of the skin to treat sunspots and wrinkles, for example.
2. Medium Peels:
Glycolic Acid Peel: Glycolic acid is an AHA (alpha-hydroxy acid). Unlike BHAs (beta-hydroxy acid) these are ideal for drier skin types. This is because BHAs are oil-soluble. Glycolic acid peels are perfect for those looking to even out skin tone, repair skin texture and brighten pigmentation. Medium peels because go through to the middle layers of the skin to treat the characteristic signs of aging or even freckles.
3. Superficial Peels:
BHA Acid Peel: Beta-hydroxy acids include salicylic acid and are ideal for oily and sensitive skin types. This is due to their anti-inflammatory qualities. Salicylic acid has the ability to minimise oil production and clean clogged pores. It also encourages cell renewal to reveal new skin, thus making it perfect for acne-prone skin. Superficial peels only treats the surface layer of the skin. However, BHA Peels can also exist in higher concentrations and can be categorised as a medium peel too.
What Does a Chemical Peel Do?
A chemical peel encourages rapid cell turnover. This basically means the peeling of the outer layer of the skin to unveil healthier, clearer skin. By doing a chemical peel, your skin goes through a thorough, deep cleaning to remove impurities accumulated throughout the day. As a result of this, your pore size reduces due to the removal of sebum and dirt. Chemical peels are conducted by trained and licensed professionals who have experience in performing these peels on clients. Doing pharma-grade chemical peels on yourself at home is incredibly dangerous and may result in burning and skin irritation.
Although there are at-home facial peels, products with a lowered concentration of ingredients are geared towards personal use in the comfort of your own home.
How Often Should You Have a Facial Peel?
Many professionals recommend that you should undergo a facial treatment every 3-4 weeks. This time period allows your skin to complete a full lifecycle and prepare itself for its next rejuvenation treatment. Therefore, by waiting an adequate amount of time for your next facial, the beneficial results are likely to be more effective. Facial treatment results also only last for around 1 month. That’s why its best to carry out regular upkeep in order to achieve the best results. If you suffer from acne, there are peels that allow clients to do every two weeks in order to clear their acne.
Many facial peels require a longer recovery period but at Dermoi, our treatments avoid skin damage. This allows for more frequent treatments. If you are looking for the best facial peel that will deliver the most effective results withouts causing damage, try out our facial treatments and see the beneficial results for yourself.

Will a Chemical Peel Get Rid of Redness?
Now, a question concerning chemical peels is if they can alleviate redness. The aftermath of a chemical peel usually entails redness of the face due to the high acid concentration of the peel. This makes it a question of whether people suffering from rosacea or who are extremely sensitive could receive chemical peels.
Rosacea sufferers or high sensitivity skin types are still able to have chemical peels, however, they must be of a lower concentration. For instance, glycolic peels at 20-40 percent concentration are tolerable for rosacea sufferers, and can also treat redness. In other cases, aestheticians will combine a variety of treatments in order to avoid aggravating rosacea, such as mixing peels with low-strength laser treatments. So, in short, those of you who suffer from rosacea or have extremely sensitive skin needn’t worry, as peels are adjustable depending on your skin type and condition.
What Are the Pharmaceutical Brands Loved by Celebrities?
iS Clinical is one such pharmaceutical brand revered by celebrities. They have high quality, proven ingredients formulated into all of their products, which are capable of treating conditions from acne to hyperpigmentation.

Celebrities Who Use Facial Peels Before Red Carpet Events
Top aestheticians regularly perform facial peels for celebrities before red carpet events. For instance, celebrities including Amanda Seyfried and Emmy Rossum go to Shani Darden for her Signature Facial, which involves a low concentration chemical peel. This gives celebrity clients a deep clean, as well as a radiant glow that’s perfect for the red carpet.
Meanwhile, celebrities such as Eva Mendes and Halle Berry go to Olga Lorencin’s skin clinic in order to attain a red carpet glow. Aptly named the Red Carpet Peel, this procedure involves the usage of a medium peel filled with chemical exfoliating ingredients such as malic acid and lactic acid to lift off the dead skin from the surface level. This brightens skin pigmentation and helps prevent acne development, as well as rejuvenating dull complexions.
What Is the Best Facial Chemical Peel for Anti-aging?
Dermoi’s itinerant aesthetician’s offer iS Clinical’s Glow/Anti-Aging Peel, which involves a potent chemical peel with no downtime. A highly potent chemical peel using iS Clinical’s well-known pharma-grade ingredients will result in a radiant glow. It also alleviates fine lines and wrinkles. Next, a lymphatic massage and LED light therapy stimulates the circulation of blood. It also rejuvenates and calms the skin after the peel. This improves the overall texture and tone of the skin, as well as reducing the size of the pores. All in all, a wonderful treatment for mature skin types, or those who are beginning to see the first signs of aging.
How Many Chemical Peels Do You Need to See Results?
As mentioned above, chemical peels are to be done every four to six weeks. This is because the skin needs time to repair and recuperate after the application of powerful, pharma-grade chemical exfoliating ingredients. Although getting regular chemical peels helps preserve youthfulness, it is estimated to have six to ten chemical peels. This will allow you to see the best results for your skin. This is especially true in the case of sufferers of severe acne. Keeping up with your chemical peels will help you see drastic results at the end of it. Peels can even help manage and mitigate the development of acne.
