Clinical Facials vs. Chemical Peels
With so many great skin care treatments available, it can be hard to know which ones will benefit your unique skin type or skin condition. Two of the most commonly sought after skin treatments at Barba Skin Clinic include clinical facials and chemical peels. Learn about benefits and differences of both below.
What is a Clinical Facial?
Facials are topical skin treatments that can treat any area of the body including the face or back. They are commonly used to remedy conditions such as:
- Lackluster skin
- Uneven tone
- Signs of aging
- Dark spots
Facials can be used to clean pores, release whitehead or blackheads, exfoliate and remove bacteria, dirt and dead skin cells. A gentle facial massage or microdermabrasion may be used in conjunction with masks, anti-oxidant serums, hydrating products and more.

Medical Benefits of Clinical Facials
In addition to feeling great, clinical facials have many medical benefits as well. Getting into the routine of clinical facial treatments will reduce toxins, dirt and grease found in your skin. Keeping your skin clean will reduce the chances of developing acne, cystic acne and uneven skin tone.
Clinical facials are also great for increasing the blood circulation in your face. This will help your body naturally increase new cell production, helping you look younger for longer.
What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a chemical solution that is applied to the face, back, hands or neck and causes the skin to slightly blister and peel. The purpose of a chemical peel is to remove damaged and dead skin cells, revealing smooth, new and undamaged skin to heal. Chemical peels are most commonly used to treat:
- Signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles and age spots
- Sun damage
- Acne scars
- Dark spots
