Chemical peels are popular among many men and women for good reason. These are non-surgical options for significantly revamping your skin. As you can tell from the name of this treatment, a chemical acid is applied to your skin, causing the removal of dead or old layers of skin cells to reveal healthier, vital skin.
There are many reasons that you might want to try out this treatment. You may have lines and wrinkles that have started settling into your skin. You may be seeing other signs of aging, such as dull skin tone or enlarged pores. Many also use chemical peels to fade or remove hyperpigmentation, such as sunspots or freckles, which can significantly age the face. Even those wanting a renewed facial glow turn to lighter types of chemical peels for an easy option.
While you may have heard of at-home chemical peels, in-office peels are far better because they are stronger and much safer. Plus, you will know that your in-office peel is being applied by a professional who knows where it should be applied, how long it should stay on the skin and how to reduce or treat any side effects.
When you come to our office, we are most likely to recommend one of a variety of peels that we have available based on your desired results and the needs of your skin. A very mild peel is certainly the easiest to start with because it requires virtually no recovery time. It is best used for mild signs of aging, uneven skin tone, poor texture and acne.
Stronger peels can provide you with far more results than light peels do. They are good for improving skin tone, removing small areas of hyperpigmentation and getting rid of minor wrinkles. However, sometimes it’s best to undergo a series of light peels, depending on the situation.
Chemical peels are well-loved for many reasons, including the fact that they are usually fast and easy ways to get amazing results.
