Spring into Beautiful Skin with A Chemical Peel

We all have preferences when it comes to our favorite treatments. Some of us love facials and will choose to get one any chance we get. Some of us want more results for our time. Botox and other injectables can provide dramatic results like few other treatments can, and we understand how people will never miss out on their regular Botox appointments. Then, there are the patients who want to see the glowing skin that results from a chemical peel and don’t mind that they need a little downtime. Keep reading to learn why people love chemical peels.

 

Chemical Peels For Everyone

Nearly anyone can have a chemical peel, regardless of your skin type or color. While some other treatments can only be used on certain skin tones, chemical peels are amazing for most any skin type. Depending on your skin color or type, certain peels may be recommended over others.

 

Results of Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are known for helping to reverse the effects of sun damage, aging, and other skin conditions. Peels improve the appearance of skin by removing dead skin cells and promoting the growth of new ones. Peels can be used on the face, the neck, the chest, and even the back to treat fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, scarring from breakouts, and hyperpigmentation. You may want to come in for multiple peels, depending on the concerns you have.

 

Acids in Chemical Peels

There are many acids that can be used in a chemical peel, including but not limited to, alphahydroxy acids (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and phenol. After the peel is applied, you may experience a slight burning that can last for a few minutes. That’s totally normal and means that the peel is working through the layers of damaged skin.

 

Aftercare of Chemical Peels

Care for your skin gently, and baby it as much as possible. Avoid using actives from your skincare routine until your skin has healed and stopped peeling. Avoid the sun as much as possible, or wear sunscreen to help protect the new skin.
