7 Ways Chemical Peels Can Make your Skin Look Healthier
We’ve all heard of chemical peels, but what are they?
Basically, a solution is applied to your face for a few minutes at a time (exact treatment lengths vary) to remove dead skin cells and stimulate production of new ones — it’s that simple!
Multiple types of chemical peel are available, designed to achieve different goals: deep, medium and superficial.
The latter focuses more on the top layer of skin, medium peels work on top and middle layers, while deep treatments reach further into the skin.
So, now you know how chemical peels work, let’s talk about what they can do for your skin!
#1. Create Better Texture and Tone
Chemical peels are designed to encourage active production of new skin cells, leading to a healthier, more youthful texture and tone.
You’ll notice the difference soon after your treatment — your skin will be glowing!
#2. Reduce the Visibility of Scars
Most of us have scars somewhere on our body. When they can be hidden from view, they’re easier to handle — but when they’re on the face it’s much more difficult.
Chemical peels can reduce the appearance of light scarring, particularly those caused by acne, so are well worth a try if you have scars you’d like to target.
#3. Ease your Acne
Speaking of acne, chemical peels can help reduce the severity of this condition to great effect, not just its scars.
Peels applied to skin affected by acne tend to be lighter, to treat the surface layer only.
#4. Minimize the Appearance of Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Want to combat those pesky wrinkles and fine lines that make you look a little older than you feel?
Chemical peels remove the skin’s outer layer to present a smoother face without such visible wrinkles / lines. While superficial peels may be effective enough to achieve the results you have in mind, a deeper one could be more suitable depending on the severity of your lines.
#5. Treat your Pigmentation Problems
Melasma, discoloration and hyperpigmentation can all be treated with chemical peels.
#6. Ease the Effects of Sun Damage
Exposure to sunlight contributes to signs of aging, which is just one of the reasons strong sun block is so important when you’re out in the sun all day.
Fortunately, chemical peels will help to repair the damage UV radiation has caused to your skin.
#7. Hydrate your Skin
Chemical peels may leave your skin more hydrated, which is important for its elasticity. Of course, drinking plenty of water helps too!
