Among the range of different skin treatments used to make you look and feel your best, is the chemical peel. You may be a bit wary of trying this treatment. But over the years, it has become a staple for many skin care clinics due to its effectiveness.
How does it work?
A chemical peel consists of applying a chemical solution to your treatment area. This is typically, your face, hands or neck. The chemical causes your skin to exfoliate and it will gradually peel away. Revealing your smoother looking skin underneath.
Contrary to popular belief, modern chemical peels are not painful and they are also quite safe.
Common Types of Peels
So when it comes to having a chemical peel treatment, you can keep it superficial, go to a medium depth, or go deep. A superficial peel, which is sometimes called a “lunchtime” peel, gently exfoliates your skin. It is effective for mild skin discolouration or rough patches of skin.
A medium peel helps remove damaged skin cells by penetrating the outer and middle layers of your skin. This type of treatment works well for wrinkles and fine lines, age spots, freckles and moderate discolouration of the skin. A deep chemical peel should only be performed once. Because it works to penetrate the middle layer of skin for a more dramatic result.
When should you get a chemical peel?
Along with the standard fine lines and wrinkles, chemical peels can be used to treat a host of different issues, including:
- Acne scars
- Sun Damaged Skin
- Ago Spots
- Crow’s Feet
- Sagging or Hanging Skin
Common Chemical Peel Benefits
When you have a chemical peel to treat one of the above skin conditions, the results are worth getting excited about. You will notice that your skin glows, and looks much smoother and more youthful than before the treatment. Chemical peels help to stimulate collagen renewal, so you will see an anti-aging effect as the lines and wrinkles fade away.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of a chemical peel is the renewed confidence you will have in your appearance. It’s easy to become self-conscious when your skin doesn’t look its best. But when it is smooth and glowing and free from damage or the effects of aging, your confidence will soar.
