A chemical peel is a facial exfoliation treatment that uses a special solution to resurface your skin by removing the damaged layers. The upper layers of dead skin are removed with a chemical solution to regenerate your skin. This results in a younger, healthier and smoother complexion.
The procedure begins with a thorough cleansing of the skin. This enables a deeper penetration of your skin. Some peels must be left on your skin for a specific period of time to neutralize prior to being wiped off. Others are self neutralizing and simply remain on your skin. The final step is typically the application of sun protection, serums and moisturizers.
A chemical peel offers a wide variety of benefits. These include:
- The procedure is non-invasive or minimally-invasive
- Reduction of redness and discolorations
- Reduction of blemishes and acne scars
- Smooths out scaly patches and rough skin
- Increased collagen production
- Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines
- Reversal of sun damage
- Improved skin texture
- The appearance of tauter and firmer skin
Chemical peels come in different potency levels. A specific chemical solution is required for each one. The lightest solution removes the epidermis and can be performed regularly. The best treatment for you will depend on a number of factors.
