Rejuvenate Your Skin with a Chemical Peel
Despite losing some popularity as new technologies were developed, the chemical peel has remained a great option for skin rejuvenation. Recently, more and more people are using this treatment that dates all the way back to ancient Egypt. Thankfully, we are no longer using the same methods as back then. This is due to advances in science and medicine that have allowed for the development of chemical peels that are just as effective without all of the downtime.
What Can a Chemical Peel Do?
Having a chemical peel helps your skin in a variety of ways. First, it removes all of those dead skin cells that like to hang out on the surface of our face. These dead cells can leave you looking pretty dull. Second, by removing the surface layer of the skin, your body is encouraged to create new collagen and hyaluronic acid. These two ingredients are absolutely essential to youthful, glowing, healthy skin.
Chemical peels can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They are also effective at evening out skin tone. A chemical peel can even reduce the appearance of scars. One of the great things about this treatment option is that it can be customized to your individual skin care concerns. As a bonus, a peel can make your skin more receptive to topical skin care products, such as moisturizers. This is due to the lack of dead skin cells preventing them from penetrating your skin.
What to Expect with a Chemical Peel
Before anything else can happen, a consultation must be had. This is our opportunity to discuss your goals for the treatment. It also gives us time to learn more about your medical history and ensure that this treatment is appropriate for you. If so, you will be given instructions on how to prepare for your treatment appointment.
The chemical peel will be done in the comfort of our office. Exactly how the peel is done will be dependent on how deep we are going. There are light, medium, and deep peels that can be done depending on the skin imperfections you would like to deal with.
Afterward, you will be given aftercare instructions to ensure you get the best possible results. These instructions will include how to wash, moisturize, and protect your freshly revealed skin. How long you will need to limit sun exposure will also depend on the depth of your chemical peel.
