Are you thinking of getting a chemical peel? If you are, then you’re probably interested in finding out what are the benefits of chemical peels, and how peels are able to refresh and rejuvenate the skin.
What’s a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a skin rejuvenation procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin in order to exfoliate the surface cells, and resurface the skin. There are different types of chemical peels – mild, medium, and deep, – and they differ based on the concentration of the acid in the peel solution, and how deeply they penetrate.
What are the benefits of chemical peels?
- Combat aging skin: Chemical peels remove the outermost layer of old skin cells, and the new skin that emerges is much smoother, and has fewer lines and wrinkles. Chemical peels also help to tighten loose skin.
- Make skin care products perform better: After a chemical peel, skin care products are able to penetrate deeper and perform better, because the surface layer of dead skin cells is no longer there to hinder penetration.
- Reduces hyperpigmentation: Chemical peels stimulate cell turnover and this helps to lift dark spots. Blemishes will start to fade about 2 weeks after treatment. There will therefore be a noticeable reduction in the appearance of blemishes such as sun spots and scars, and the skin will have a more even tone.
Chemical peels are extremely versatile, because they can be used to address a variety of skin concerns including fine lines, wrinkles, scars, discoloration, and dull skin.
