Chemical peels, also called facial peels, involve your specialist applying a particular chemical solution on your face or neck to improve your skin appearance. The chemical used exfoliates your skin, peeling it off. Chemical peels stimulate the growth of new skin cells, making your skin appear less wrinkled and damaged and smoother. The treatment can address wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone. There are three forms of Marietta chemical peels; superficial, medium, and deep. The kind your dermatologist recommends depends on your skin type and your condition. Chemical peels can benefit your skin in many ways, including:
Reduce acne marks
Chemical peels can help ease acne breakouts. They also minimize scarring from skin blemishes. Peeling off your skin’s top layer unclogs your facial pores and removes blackheads. Some chemical peels contain substances that remove post-pimple marks. The chemical peels that best eliminate acne marks have salicylic and lactic acid. Salicylic acid stays in your skin pores over time, keeping them clear.
Reduce facial lines and wrinkles
Chemical peels are classified into mild, moderate, and deep. Deep peels work bests for fine lines and wrinkles. Other peels require more than one treatment session for effective results, but one session of deep peel provides excellent outcomes. Deep peels can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, forehead, and mouth. Medium peels can eliminate moderate lines. Ensure you avoid sunlight after treatment for long-term results. It may take more than six months to heal.
Reduces sun damage
Chemical peels can treat hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation causes the skin to get patches, with some being darker than others. A mild chemical peel eliminates sun spots, freckles, and other pigmentation problems. Sun damage can cause aging effects, such as facial lines and blotchiness, but chemical peels eliminate all these effects.
Melasma is a hyper-pigmentation problem and can resist particular treatments in some people. Long-term hyper-pigmentation can affect your self-esteem and social life. Melasma can increase due to hormonal changes during and after pregnancy, but chemical peels can eliminate the problem permanently. This treatment can also remove dark spots resulting from pigmentation issues.
Boosts the functioning of your skincare products
After chemical peel treatment, new cells grow and move to the skin surface. Production of collagen also increases, giving you smoother skin with a radiant appearance. Since chemical peels remove top dead skin cells, skin care products will easily penetrate your skin, giving better results. After treatment, you will note better functioning of your skincare products.
Chemical peels involve your dermatologist cleaning your face thoroughly and applying a specific chemical solution. After peeling off the top skin layer, new cells replace the old ones, and the solution also contains skin-healing substances for your skin. Chemical peels enhance skin exfoliation, improving its tone and texture. Your skin becomes smoother, leaving you with a glowing look.
A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that uses a unique chemical solution to remove the damaged top layer of your skin. It reduces acne marks, fine lines, and wrinkles, boosts your skincare products, controls melasma, and exfoliates your skin efficiently.
