Facial peels are one of the most practical ways to deal with skin conditions that you find embarrassing. Treatments of this type are simple and most effective when conducted under the care of a professional. Here is some information you should know about the process and the conditions it can treat.
What is a Facial Peel?
A facial peel is a procedure involving the application of a carefully blended combination of chemicals. When applied properly, the facial mask helps to loosen the outer layer of skin and cause it to exfoliate. Once the peel is complete, it’s easy to remove that loosened outer layer and reveal the health skin underneath.
Eliminating Wrinkles and Rough Skin
One of the more common reasons for undergoing a facial peel is to minimize wrinkles and soften skin that has toughened due to exposure to the elements. That includes years of sun exposure that has left the skin with a rougher texture. After the peel loosens the top skin layer, the underlying layer heals and is relatively free of wrinkling and is smoother to the touch. Many people find that the procedure leaves them with a more youthful appearance.
Reducing Acne Scarring
People who experienced severe cases of acne may think that there is no way to undo the damage. In fact, undergoing a facial peel can lessen the scarring that extreme cases of acne leave behind. That’s because the underlying layers of skin are relatively unaffected by acne. By removing the upper layer and exposing the health skin underneath, the face has less signs of any blemishes and is smoother to the touch.
Melasma is a condition in which brown patches appear on different parts of the body. On the face, the patches may develop on the cheeks, nose, forehead, of chin. Along with treating the underlying cause, facial peels will remove the patches and restore a more even skin tone.
Hyperpigmentation is caused by an excess of melanin in the skin that forms deposits. Those deposits cause discoloration on the forehead, cheeks, and the chin. This condition is most often triggered by sun exposure, inflammation, and various types of skin injuries. The right type of facial peel can minimize the discoloration and give the skin a more uniform tone.
