Microneedling vs. Chemical Peels: Which is Right for Me?

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a procedure that many people are turning to these days to get the glowing skin they desire. With “needling” in the name, we know it can sound scary, but it’s a safe and effective treatment for people who want a younger-looking complexion. Microneedling is an excellent option for addressing difficult skin concerns like textured acne scars and can be paired with platelet-rich plasma for faster, more resilient results.

The benefits of this microneedling include:

  1. No downtime
  2. Natural simulation of collagen
  3. Versatile treatment areas

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a professional-grade skin care treatment that uses concentrated alpha hydroxy acids to exfoliate your skin chemically. The type of chemical peel you receive will depend on the depth needed for your specific needs – superficial peels are great for monthly rejuvenation, and deeper peels are useful for tackling deep-rooted skin concerns.

Chemical peels are the best way to give your skin an instant boost of fresh, youthful vitality. Its benefits include:

  1. Healthy glowing results
  2. Customization for individual needs;
  3. Improvement in texture, tone and appearance.

Microneedling or Chemical Peel: Which is Better for Me?

Many clients visit our aesthetic studio asking about what treatment is best for their specific goal and current skin condition. It’s not a case where there’s a “best” treatment, but rather a matter of finding what works best for you. For example, chemical peels work better on superficial imperfections while microneedling penetrates deeper to improve more troublesome issues—in this way, it can reach under the skin (to promote healing) and uplift scarred areas after receiving treatments.

The answer of which is better for you specifically depends on what kind of results you are looking for and how much time and money you would like to spend. If you want a quick fix with no downtime, then microneedling might not be the best option for you. On the other hand, if long-term benefits are more important than instant gratification (microneedling), then this may just be perfect! Many people find that combination therapies like these deliver great results, which means that perhaps including both treatments can be optimal.
