What Are Chemical Peels?
Acid is used as an exfoliant during a chemical peel. The chemical eliminates dead skin cells on the skin. Removing dead skin cells makes the skin smoother and more refined. You may notice improved skin tone and fewer lines and wrinkles. The treatment takes about 30 minutes, and the skin exfoliates for a few days after the treatment.
A chemical peel is an outpatient procedure. The practitioner cleans the skin and applies chemicals to the skin.
The various chemicals used include:
- Glycolic acid
- Salicylic acid
- Lactic acid
Forms of Chemical Peels
There are three types of chemical peels. Light chemical peels smooth skin texture and improve the appearance of acne scars. Further, light chemical peels work wonders on sun-damaged skin.
Medium chemical peels help to lighten dark age spots. In addition, fine lines and wrinkles may look better.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Chemical peels may help people of a variety of skin tones and types. However, a consultation with our team is the best way to determine if a peel could help you achieve your skincare goals.
Benefits of a Chemical Peel
A person’s beauty products work much better after a chemical peel. The dead skin is gone, and moisturizers can better penetrate deep into the skin. After a treatment, most people enjoy moisturized skin with a healthy glow.
How to Take Care of the Finished Product
A series of several treatments may be recommended to achieve lasting results. Extensive exfoliation helps to reach the deepest layers of skin.
