Everything from sun exposure and aging to acne and clogged pores can leave you with uneven skin tone, fine lines, scarring and a lack luster complexion. If you want your skin to look smoother, younger and more vibrant, a chemical peel can make a significant difference.
Chemical peels work well for both men and women, at any age and are the ideal treatment for anyone who wants to restore a more youthful, healthy glow to their skin.
How They Work
Although the word “chemical” might sound scary, fear not. Nothing is actually “peeled off.” A chemical solution is applied to the skin and works by dissolving the upper layers of the skin. As the tissue is dissolved and skin heals itself, new tissue emerges and fresher, smoother skin is revealed.
The depth and strength of the peel used varies based on the strength of the chemicals used and the length of time the solution is applied. The formula used by your therapist will be adjusted based on your needs and skin type.
Chemical peels are one of the least invasive ways and more affordable ways to improve the look of your skin. They offer a host of beauty benefits including:
- Diminished fine lines and wrinkles
- Boosted confidence with a smooth, glowing complexion
- Concrete results at an affordable price
- Minimal down time
- Reduced appearance of sun damage and melisma
- Improved texture
- Enhanced collagen growth
- Vibrant skin
- Minimized acne and scarring
Depending on what you want to achieve – a clearer complexion, smoother skin, minimized scarring, etc. there’s a perfect peel to suit your needs.
Peels formulated with Alphahydroxy acids (AHA) and Betahydroxy acids (BHA) are the mildest form of peel (referred to as superficial peels).
Medium peels are stronger and treat skin with surface wrinkles and uneven skin tone or pigment problems. Varying strengths are used to adjust the depth of the peel, depending on what complexion concerns you have.
Deep peels require use of the strongest solution, but achieve the most dramatic results – think deeper wrinkles smoothed out and blotchiness banished. Do note though, that the stronger the peel, the higher the chances for discomfort, redness and recovery time.
Your therapist will work with you to find the perfect complexion perfecting concoction for you.
