Why You Should Get a Chemical Peel

Everyone has a beauty routine. Adding a chemical peel to your beauty routine can help you achieve a youthful appearance. Here is more information about chemical peels and how a salon suite can help.

What Is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing application that uses a chemical solution to remove the top layers of the skin.

Why Is a Chemical Peel Good for Your Skin?

Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Chemical peels remove the outer layer of your skin, revealing fresh, smooth skin. By removing the outermost layer of skin, you eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Depending on your beauty goals, your skin may benefit from a moderate or deep chemical peel.

Sun Damage Correction

Radiation from the sun severely ages your skin. More than 85 percent of premature aging is caused by radiation exposure from the sun. The good news is chemical peels can reverse sun damage on your skin by repairing the damage. These peels can repair sun-damaged skin on your neck, hands, face, and chest.

Correct Facial Imperfections

Chemical peels that contain silicic acid can improve facial imperfections, such as acne. These peels can reduce acne and other surface facial imperfections by as much as 75 percent.

Reduce the Appearance of Scars

If you have scarred skin, moderate chemical peels can help with acne and light scarring. Moderate chemical peels deeply penetrate the skin, diminishing the appearance of acne scars.

What Are the Different Types of Chemical Peels?

The three types of chemical peels are superficial, medium, and deep peels.

Superficial Chemical Peels

Superficial chemical peels are great for removing the top layer of dead skin cells. This type of chemical peel can be performed every two to four weeks and may require four to six applications before you see results. You may experience redness and peeling skin for one to seven days.

Medium Chemical Peels

Medium chemical peels are ideal for removing the top layer of dead skin and addressing minimal acne scarring. This type of peel can be performed every two to four weeks and may require four to six applications before you see desired results. You may experience redness and peeling for one to seven days.

Deep Chemical Peels

Deep chemical peels are ideal for severe acne scarring and removing dead skin cells. This type of peel may only have to be performed once depending on your cosmetic goals. Only one treatment is required to correct various skin imperfections to obtain a brighter, youthful appearance. You may experience redness and peeling skin for two to four weeks.

Who Is Not a Good Candidate for Chemical Peels?

Individuals with darker skin tones need to be aware that deep chemical peels can alter melanin synthesis. Also, people who have kidney issues should not have chemical peels because the chemicals can be absorbed by the skin and cause more problems.
