Are signs of aging and sun damage starting to show on your skin? Chemical peel services can address these issues and more.
What are chemical peels?
During chemical peeling, the skin’s surface is applied with a solution. The chemical peeling solution, usually acid, causes the skin’s outer layer to exfoliate and peel off. When the outer layer peels off, the result is smoother, younger, less wrinkled, and less damaged skin.
Aside from diminishing signs of aging and acne scars, chemical peels are also used to treat skin conditions on the face, neck, hands, and other areas of concern.
What are the types of chemical peels?
Different chemical peeling solutions are available depending on one’s skin damage and skincare goals. Here are the three most common types of chemical peel services:
- Light or superficial chemical peel.
This is recommended for those with mild acne, uneven skin coloring, or fine wrinkling. It is also for those who want to brighten their skin or have rough sun-damaged skin.
A superficial chemical peel uses salicylic or glycolic acid to produce mild exfoliation. Some patients experience some dryness after treatment. No downtime is required, although a series of treatments are needed to see skin improvements visibly.
- Medium chemical peel.
It removes the outermost layer and the upper part of the middle skin. This results in smooth and youthful skin.
This is best for those who want to reverse physical signs of extensive sun damage, deeper lines, fine-to-moderate wrinkles, and age spots. Peeling takes five to seven days and may require downtime.
- Deep chemical peel.
This chemical peel is the most aggressive chemical peeling treatment due to the stronger combinations of acid solutions used on the skin. For this reason, it produces the most dramatic results as the chemical reaches the lower middle layer of the skin.
The procedure is done only once but recovery time takes longer than other types of chemical peel treatments.
This is best for those with moderate lines and wrinkles, deep acne scars, and extensive sun damage. It also applies to those with actinic keratosis (precancerous growth).
What are the benefits of chemical peels?
Chemical peeling causes the skin’s outer layer to exfoliate and peel off. Eventually, this peeled-off layer is replaced with healthier and more youthful skin. The new skin is also smoother, brighter in complexion, and has fewer lines and wrinkles.
Having smoother and healthier skin is the most significant benefit of chemical peels. And as a result of this, patients gain more self-confidence and feel good about themselves.
To sum up, chemical peel services can help reduce or improve the following:
- Fine lines under the eyes or around the mouth
- Wrinkles caused by sun damage, aging, and genes
- Mild scars
- Age spots, sun spots, freckles, and uneven skin color
- Dull complexion
