Imagine having skin so flawless that all you want to do is show it off to the world. If this sounds like an aspiration of yours, you’re not alone. Having a glowing, even complexion without fine lines, spots, and sun damage is many people’s skin goal. But can you realistically expect to have skin that warrants makeup-less looks and tons of compliments? Yes, and chemical facial peels can help you get there.
The fresh, baby-soft skin uncovered by a chemical facial peel allows you to face the world with a newfound confidence. No need to spend hours in front of the mirror applying makeup. Wake up with a flawless complexion every morning.
Chemical facial peels can be used to…
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines around your eyes and mouth
- Treat wrinkles throughout your face
- Soften or eliminate the appearance of mild scars and marks
- Reduce the appearance of age spots and melasma (dark patches)
- Treat sun damage
- Produce softer, more even skin
How do chemical facial peels work?
Your skin is constantly regenerating itself. Right now, there are layers and layers of fresh, new skin underneath the surface of your face. This new skin is free of blemishes, sun damage, uneven tones, and the overall wear and tear that can take a toll on the skin. Eventually, your face’s current surface will be replaced with these new layers. The chemical peel process simply catalyzes that replacement so you can enjoy the flawless skin your body has already produced.
What is the skin care process like?
First, a customized chemical solution is applied by a trusted esthetician for a strategically set time period. Next, they let the peel set, and take off the peel and clients can begin enjoying the results. Though deep facial peels can be helpful for skin conditions that penetrate more deeply into the skin, light to medium peels are typically effective enough for general cosmetic purposes. Generally, after the facial peel has been removed, a nourishing ointment is applied and the patient is sent home.
With a light facial peel, although the skin may be a bit irritated in the hours following the skin care treatment, patients are usually free to resume normal activities immediately after the chemical peel process. A medium facial peel may require a few days of downtime.
What makes peels so effective?
There are countless products on the market and a plethora of home remedies on the internet for achieving flawless skin. While some of these may be effective, none come close to the results of a facial peel. Chemical facial peels are so effective because instead of trying to repair your skin’s current surface, it gives you the opportunity to start over with the fresh, supple skin your body has already generated underneath.
Are there different types of chemical peels?
Because patient skin types and goals differ, it makes sense that there are many different types of chemical peels to choose from. Some patients like to get a pre-event glow with a mild, tightening facial peel. Others turn to facial peels to treat skin conditions like enlarged pores and moderate acne.
The right type of chemical peel for you depends on the characteristics of your skin’s current surface and what you would like to achieve. Ranging from gently illuminating to deeply rejuvenative, there are all kinds of peels available. Consult with a trusted esthetician to find your perfect match.
With so many skin care products, treatments, and home recipes out there promising the world when it comes to skin care, it’s refreshing to come across a tried-and-true process as effective as chemical facial peels.
