How do chemical peels treat sun damage?

Chemical peels are full of replenishing ingredients that shed the top layer of skin to reveal the beautiful, fresh skin that lies below. The great thing about peels is their versatility; you can get one as mild or strong as you’d like, meaning you can specifically cater a chemical peel to your unique needs. Chemical peels can range in intensity from light peels to deep peels. However, if you’re new to peels, we highly recommend you start light and slowly work your way up.

Our top pick: Skinceutical’sMedica’s MircroVitalize Peel

SkinMedica is already known for having phenomenal medical-grade products for sun damage, so it makes sense that they would have chemical peels to match. The MicroVitalize Peel infuses a combination of healthyresorcinol, lactic, salicylic, and retinoic acids to treat sun damage, moderate skin aging, acne, and more. Plus, the renewal process boosts collagen production, helping your skin to maintain its youthful glow long after the peel treatment. For the best results, we recommend a series of three treatments spaced four weeks apart.
