Chemical peels are treatments that can help you rejuvenate your complexion by sloughing off dead layers of skin cells and revealing fresh new skin underneath.
Whether you have oily, dry, or acne-prone skin types or you are simply looking for anti-aging benefits, chemical peels are a great option for maintaining the youthfulness of your skin.
About Chemical Peels Treatment
Chemical peels use a solution to remove outer layers of skin, usually in the face and neck areas. This helps in new cell growth and rejuvenation, and the skin that grows back looks healthier and smoother. It takes about 30 to 90 minutes for the complete treatment. Chemical peel treatments may be combined with other procedures or products that will help achieve maximum results.
There are a wide variety of professional and medical-grade chemical peels that affect different skin depths. It is therefore very important that a doctor or trained esthetician performs your chemical peel treatment based on your unique skin needs.
Chemical peel treatments come with varying degrees of downtime based on your skin type, the condition being treated, and the intensity of the active ingredient. The treatment causes increased sensitivity to UV light for a short time after treatment. Your skin may be more sunburn-sensitive in this period, so you should avoid the sun and wear sunscreen.
Benefits of a Chemical Peel
Chemical peels benefit in treating skin conditions such as:
- Acne scars and uneven skin tone
- Hyperpigmentation issues like age spots and sun damage.
- Fine lines
- Enlarged pores.
Chemical peels brighten and smooth the skin’s appearance.
