Which Is Better Ipl Or Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are a popular method of exfoliation, which removes dead skin cells to reveal the fresh new layers underneath. The benefits include smoother, more even-toned skin and an overall improvement in the appearance of your skin.

But chemical peels aren’t for everyone. If you have sensitive skin or are prone to acne, you might want to consider Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy instead. IPL uses light energy to target specific areas of your face and is proven effective at improving the look and feel of your skin. In this article you’ll read about ipl and chemical peel together and ipl peel cost.

Which Is Better Ipl Or Chemical Peel

Fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne, spider veins, broken capillaries, dullness, uneven texture – Chances are everyone experiences at least one of these!

Chemical peels and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) procedures have earned their reputation as the “go-to” treatment plan for effectively eliminating these skin concerns.

Together they are even more powerful! So why not combine them?

At Beauty Rewind, we have created the most effective treatment plan to get your skin to its healthiest state as quickly and effectively as possible.

By combining IPL and chemical peels, we can address a multitude of skin concerns all at once, leaving you with a clear and smooth complexion!

What is an IPL Treatment?

IPL therapy, also known as a “photo facial,” is a treatment that is used to improve the texture and color of your skin without surgery. 

This form of skin treatment can address visible damage caused by sun exposure as well as the appearance of red, brown, or splotchy skin due to a health condition.

IPL treatment uses light energy to target certain colors and pigmentation in your skin by heating the skin and encouraging the body to get rid of unwanted cells. 

IPL devices are not lasers, and they send out multiple wavelengths of pulsating light to treat a range of skin conditions at the same time!

During the first 5-7 days following treatment, you may experience a darkening of your dark spots and reddening of your red spots.

Don’t worry! These will clear up after a week, and you will notice a more youthful complexion and even skin tone.

IPL treatments must be administered by board-certified dermatologists, nurses, or physicians.

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a skincare procedure involving a chemical solution applied to the skin to remove the top layers. When the skin grows back, it grows back smoother!

Chemical peels are commonly used to treat scars, wrinkles, and discolored skin. They can be performed alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures.

While chemical peels do offer more dramatic results, there is a notable recovery period following the treatment.

Chemical peels can be applied at different depths:

  • light chemical peel, or superficial peels, removes the outer layer of the skin to treat fine wrinkles, acne, dryness, and uneven skin tone. These are typically done every 2-5 weeks.
  • medium chemical peel removes cells from the outer layer of skin and portions of the middle layer. This can help treat scars, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. This procedure is generally repeated regularly to maintain results.
  • Deep chemical peels go even deeper to remove more skin cells. These are used for deeper wrinkles and scars as well as precancerous growths. Repeat procedures are not necessary to maintain desired results.

At Beauty Rewind, we offer two different types of peels that contain three active ingredients:

  • Lactic Acid: improves moisture levels in overly sensitive or dry skin
  • Resorcinol: eases inflammation, redness, and acne
  • Salicylic Acid: reduces oiliness, improves texture, eases post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and encourages the removal of pore-clogging debris

Can I Do IPL After a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels target the skin’s surface layers to eliminate conditions such as acne, dullness, hyperpigmentation, and uneven texture.

The powerful ingredients used in chemical peels slough off the superficial layers of dead skin to promote college production and new cell growth. 

After a chemical peel addresses the outermost layers of the skin, IPL can then be used to penetrate the deeper layers to target and eliminate broken capillaries, deeper hyperpigmentation and promote the production of collagen to tighten skin.

By combining the benefits of these two treatments and addressing both the surface and deeper layers of the skin, we can rejuvenate the skin and produce the best results in the shortest amount of time!

Are These Treatments Right For Me?

The only way to know for sure if a chemical peel and IPL treatment are right for you is to book a free consultation with an expert technician!

First of all, it is important to consider your primary skin issues. There’s an overlap in what these two treatments can address, such as sun damage, wrinkles, rough texture, acne, and minor scars.

But if you have complexion issues (such as rosacea), large pores, or unwanted skin, going with just an IPL treatment may be your best bet.

Skin type is also an important consideration. While fair-skinned people usually respond well to both treatments, those with darker skin tones may experience discoloration.

However, this risk can be avoided by having both treatments administered by a professional who can adjust the quantity and types of ingredients in the chemical peel and control the intensity of the IPL light.

Whether you choose a chemical peel, IPL, or both, the treatments are quick, but the recovery time can take up to two weeks for chemical peels and a couple of hours for IPL.

Can These Treatments Damage My Skin?

When it comes to IPL treatments, there is very little risk of damaging your skin. This non-invasive treatment gently saturates the surface of your skin.

In fact, Intense Pulse Light treatment is highly preferred to popular treatments such as laser treatments.

On the other hand, chemical peels are not guaranteed to damage your skin, but there are risks of complications and side effects such as redness, swelling, and infection.

However, when used safely by an expert, chemical peels are a safe and comfortable procedure. This is why it is always recommended that you have a professional technician apply a chemical peel instead of doing it at home.

Ipl And Chemical Peel Together

You are going to love this combination! IPL photofacials are amazing, but get even more fantastic results with combining IPL facials with chemical peels. The added benefit to this is that you speed up the results and get the benefits of both treatments in one sitting. Bonus if you have a big event coming up or if you are just looking to correct that summer skin damage faster.

Some of the best results are shown to come from doing these treatments monthly. But we get it, not everyone can make it into the office twice a month. That is why we are now offer the combo treatment.

IPL & chemical peel combo – This combination works best for correcting sun damaged skin, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. The IPL focuses energy in the deeper layers of skin to correct pigmentation. The chemical peel accelerates exfoliation and evens skin tone post treatment.

Combining laser energy with traditional chemical peels is just another example of what today’s advanced technology in the hands of professional skin care specialists can accomplish. This month is a perfect time to try a combo treatment and take advantage of Omni’s Fall Special: IPL Photofacial ($350 retail value) plus Brightening Chemical Peel ($225 retail value) which includes post skin care kit from Rhonda Allison ($575 retail value) for $450 (Save $150) or a package of 3 for $1200 (Save $525).

While the combo treatments are awesome and we love them they are not for everyone. If your skin is sensitive or irritated, combo treatments might not be right for you. Never fear- come in for a free consultation and we can guide you in the right direction.

If you’re a fan of immediate gratification, (and who isn’t) then consider this combo treatment for a real knock out result!
