Chemical Peels-What you Need to Know

Chemical peels are one way to achieve young and radiant skin. Essentially a peel removes damaged and hyper-pigmented skin and stimulates collagen production to firm skin. Peels vary from superficial to deep depending on the level and quickness of results you are looking to achieve.

What do peels do?

Peels make your skin smoother, assist in fading brown spots and correcting uneven skin tone and reveal a new fresh layer of skin. Those that use chemical peels to improve the appearance of wrinkles should have them done every 6 to 8 weeks.

Depending on the type of peel you get you can have some varying side effects. With superficial peels you will notice some redness and skin sensitivity with less noticeable results. There might also be a short period of time where you will notice your old layer of skin beginning to flake off. With more intense peels (medium and deep peels) you will notice more intense side effects than the superficial peel. This is due to the fact that peels essentially dissolve the top layer of your skin.

What are the benefits?

Peels are very beneficial to improve your skins function as well as your skin care products function on your skin. By removing your dead skin cells you are stimulating cell development and making it so that there are no dead cells for your skin care products to penetrate through to get to the living ones. There are also certain peels that can help unclog your pores to prevent acne and fade the scars caused post-pimples.
