Why You Might Want to Schedule a Chemical Peel this Season
- Posted on: Feb 15 2019
Terms like “chemical peel” and “skin resurfacing” may sound incredibly harsh, as if you would need to take weeks off from work and prepare yourself for an uncomfortable recovery. This isn’t the case at all. Misperceptions about chemical peel treatment could keep you from one of the best things you can do for your skin. Here, we discuss a few of the benefits that can be achieved with professional care and a few gentle chemicals.
Minimizing Dreaded Breakouts
Breakouts tend to occur during the teenage years, but that doesn’t mean we are free and clear once we reach adulthood. Many adults of all ages may continue to struggle with the occasional spot here and there. Breakouts at any age can be frustrating, to say the least. Pimples and blackheads and even diffuse irritation in which the skin feels bumpy and looks red may develop for a number of reasons, including hormone changes, stress, and environmental pollution. A chemical peel does not need to be aggressive to minimize future breakouts. Each treatment is customized to achieve a beautiful outcome.
Reducing Lines and Creases
When we think wrinkle-reduction, we typically imagine what injectables might be able to accomplish. If you are interested in promoting younger behavior in your skin that slows your aging process, there are good reasons to consider adding chemical peels into your beauty arsenal. Each customized peel removes just enough dead and damaged skin cells from the uppermost layers of tissue to promote collagen proliferation, pore refinement, and softness. With ongoing treatments, our patients can notice smoother, softer skin with fewer visible lines.
Multitasking at Its Best
One of the advantages of chemical peels is that each treatment can improve the skin in a number of ways without needing to be complex or time-consuming. Chemical peels speed up the exfoliation that should occur naturally so newer, healthier skin cells can reach the surface. By boosting the speed of exfoliation, peels encourage natural processes of renewal for better tone, texture, and resilience.
