Top 5 Benefits of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are the oldest cosmetic treatment in the world, with examples from every ancient culture. The basic idea of a peel is to use chemicals, usually acids, to exfoliate the topmost layers of skin to rejuvenate and restore the appearance of skin. Here are five of the best benefits of this classic treatment:
1. Skin Rejuvenation
You can think of a peel as your one-stop shop for fixing all of your superficial skin concerns. This treatment is incredibly versatile and extremely effective for correcting issues on the skin surface, including:
- Uneven skin tone
- Skin clarity
- Sun damage
- Dark spots
2. Anti-Aging Benefits
A peel isn’t only limited to treating the skin’s surface. In fact, peels are one of the gentlest options for smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The acids used in peels can penetrate the sub-dermal layers of skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin: two proteins in the skin that support skin-structure. Additionally, these acids can also help with issues such as:
- Expression lines
- Skin laxity
3. Acne-Fighting Power
Controlling acne breakouts is one of the bigger challenges for cosmetic treatments, mostly because acne is a dynamic issue caused by multiple factors such as hormones and diet. However, chemical facials and peels can go a long way in controlling blemishes or eliminating them altogether. Peels can help with aspects of acne such as:
- Acne scarring
The main purpose of a peel is to exfoliate the outermost layers of skin to encourage new cell renewal and reveal a brighter-looking complexion. But it is important to emphasize the benefit of exfoliating for cosmetic treatments. Total exfoliation from a peel can help other cosmetic treatments work better or even enhance the results of treatments, such as radiofrequency or dermal fillers. Exfoliating properly is the single most beneficial thing that can be done for the skin to restore a youthful appearance.
5. Easy Customization
The best thing about a peel is the fact that it can be customized to your exact needs. Both the depth of the peel and the acids used can be tailored to precisely what your skin requires. We will work with you to find the chemical acid that works best for your exact needs and help you determine the frequency of your peels to achieve your desired results.
