The Medical-Grade Peel Difference

Chemical peels treat the skin through the use of different solutions that are applied to the top layers of the skin. These medical-grade peels are categorized as light, medium, or deep, depending on the results you’re looking for, your skin type,  and the type of skin concerns you’re struggling with. Board-certified physician’s assistant Cigdem Gali and all our specialists at Galiderm Aesthetics are pleased to offer patients medical-grade peels that rejuvenate and beautify their skin. But what is the difference between medical-grade peels and other chemical peels? Let’s take a look!

What Is a Medical Grade Peel?

A medical-grade peel is administered by a licensed professional. At-home peels are those bought at the drugstore and administered by you. Because they aren’t applied by a professional, at-home peels are considerably weaker than medical-grade ones and will likely not be able to give you the results you’re looking for. A medical-grade peel can address a number of concerns and reveal the glowing, radiant, and healthy skin you’ve always wanted.

What Do They Treat?

Medical-grade peels treat skin concerns like hyperpigmentation, age spots, sunspots, and enlarged or clogged pores..They also support the overall health of the skin, reduce acne and scars, improve the skin’s texture, and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Medical Grade Peel Options

What type of peel is right for you depends largely on your skin type, your skin issues, and the results you’re looking for. There are three options to choose from when it comes to medical-grade peels, including:


A light peel addresses the top layer of the skin and is typically good for any type of skin. It’s also ideal for people who are experiencing their first peel. A light peel corrects minor problems and gives the skin a more youthful glow.


Medium peels are the most popular type of medical-grade peel. They correct more imperfections and improve skin tone and texture without the discomfort of a deep peel. Medium peels are used to treat sun damage, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and sunspots. For best results, patients may have more than one medium peel scheduled several weeks apart.


A deep peel penetrates the top layers of the skin to reach the dermis. It is used to treat more serious skin problems such as inflammation and acne and must be applied by a professional. To ensure your comfort, an anesthetic will be applied before the peel. A cream will also be used afterward to prevent dryness and any discomfort.

Benefits of Medical Grade Peels

Medical grade peels provide a variety of benefits, including helping to soften deep wrinkles and furrows, pigmentation, dark spots, and acne scars. They also promote collagen and elastin production and leave the skin looking brighter and more youthful.
