What Are Chemical Peels?

One of the very best things you can do for yourself is to take care of your skin.  Skin is the largest organ of the body and has the job of protecting us from bacteria and the elements, regulating our body temperature, and allowing us to experience the sensations of temperature and touch. Because our skin is so important, it is even more important to be aware of the variety of skin care options that are available. One great place to start is with an inexpensive yet effective treatment called a chemical peel.

What Are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that can be applied to the face, hands, and neck. They are used to remove damaged skin cells revealing healthier skin underneath. There are three different types that include light, medium, and deep peels. Light peels only penetrate the outermost layer of skin. Medium peels reach the outer and middle layers of skin, and deep peels fully penetrate the middle layer.

What Do Chemical Peels Do?

When applied to the skin, chemical peel solutions cause the skin to exfoliate and then to peel off. The shedding of the top layer of skin will signal living cells to multiply and move to the surface. This also signals your body to increase collagen production and natural hyaluronic acid.  Because of this reaction you will notice a number of benefits:

  • A reduction in depth of fine lines and wrinkles due to increased collagen.
  • Improved appearance of sun damaged areas as dead cells are removed and healthy skin cells replace them.
  • Improved appearance of acne scars.
  • Reduction in the discoloration of various types of hyperpigmentation.
  • A more even skin tone will develop.
  • Pores will be unclogged and will appear smaller and healthier.

Chemical peels are customizable to your individual needs, making them excellent anti-aging treatments for nearly any skin type. Because chemical peels are strong, you will have red and slightly swollen skin for up to 2 weeks. There will be scabbing and then the dead skin will flake away. In just 2 or 3 weeks, you will start to see a more refreshed and rejuvenated complexion, Final results visible within one month. Some clients may need more than one chemical peel to see ideal results.
