Microneedling and Chemical Peels Differences


Written by Ali Waychoff, Reviewed by Dr. Justin Harper, MD

Microneedling and chemical peels are the two most popular non-surgical treatments which help corrects minor cosmetic issues and facial skin rejuvenation.

While each of these services provides many benefits, there are a few key differences to note when deciding which of them best suits your individual needs and goals.

In this article, we explain how microneedling and chemical peels are performed in Juvly Aesthetics. It will also help you determine the best option suited for you.

Chemical Peels:

Chemical peels also help reduce pore size, redness, fine lines, texture, and acne. We advise our clients to repeat the procedure every four to six weeks in order to maintain optimal skin health.

The result is even, glowing skin immediately after the treatment.


To get rid of freckles, sun damage spots, and hyperpigmentation chemical peels are better. Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition in which the body produces excessive melanin and creates spotty patches of darker skin on the face.


To get rid of fine lines, deep wrinkles, and acne scars microneedling is better. It is also suitable for reducing pore size, preventing acne, and improving skin texture. It is slightly more invasive than a chemical peel.

The procedure involves thin needles puncturing the skin to encourage new collagen production. Microneedling is not painful because the clients are thoroughly numbed before. The amount of microneedling sessions a client needs depends on that individual’s skin type.
