During a chemical peel a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which removes the outer layers of the skin. The skin then heals itself, revealing a fresher, smoother look. There are different strengths of peels that are used for different skin problems. Chemical peels can provide many different benefits to your skin.
Reduces the Appearance of Sun Damage
Sun damage and skin pigmentation are often two of the hardest skin conditions to treat. A chemical peel will remove the upper, damaged layer of the skin, leaving a smoother, more even toned appearance to your skin.
Lessens the Look of Fine Lines
Chemical peels can also help to remedy the problem of fine lines. Often creams and lotions can’t completely reduce the look of fine lines, and a chemical peel can offer much better results.
Enhances Collagen Growth
A chemical peel injures the outer layers of the skin. As your skin heals there is increase collagen production and cell renewal, resulting in healthier, glowing, younger looking skin.
Depending on the type of peel, recovery can be fairly quick, requiring a few days to one week to heal.
