Facials and peels are beauty treatments we always hear about, but do you know the differences between the two? The two treatments have similar goals but distinct processes. ANU Medical Spa, a medical spa in NJ, is here to help you determine the best option for your needs.
These are topical skin treatments that generally consist of a mix of serums and other products. It’s a common misconception that this treatment is solely for the face due to the name, because they can be used anywhere on the body. For example, ANU offers a deep cleansing back facial that is a customer favorite. Facials treat many different skin problems, including aging, acne, hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and large pores, to name a few. They also reduce toxins, dirt, and grease and assist with blood circulation.
Facials generally have minimal to no recovery time, which make them great for last-minute events. Facials come in a variety of formulas, so there is one guaranteed to be the perfect fit for your needs. ANU offers the gentleman’s facial, which is formulated for men to assist with specific issues such as dryness from shaving. There is also the teen facial, tailored for the needs of adolescents. In the month of June, you can save $20 on our lifestyle facial, which we personalize for each client.
Peels can be more intense than facials and can be applied to the face, back, hands, and neck. The skin may experience slight blistering during the treatment, which is followed by the peel being removed. While this sounds extreme, the results are incredible. Peels can remove dry and damaged skin and help with aging, acne and scarring, and dark spots. While facials use serums to treat the skin, peels use a chemical solution that strips the surface layer of cells to reveal softer, smoother skin underneath.
ANU provides an array of options for peels. Get refreshed this summer with the antioxidant pomegranate peel, or opt for our three-step advanced peel to provide optimal skin health. Deciding between facials and peels at your next spa trip is a big decision, but ANU is always a phone call away if you have any questions.
