If you’re not familiar with the world of chemical peels, the name itself can have you running in the other direction. The idea of “chemicals” being applied to your skin can certainly be daunting to some, but did you know that chemical peels can help you achieve brighter, clearer, more youthful-looking skin? They are a great solution for patients who have a wide variety of skin concerns and can improve the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and hyperpigmentation. If you still need convincing, here are a few skin benefits of chemical peels.
Stimulate Collagen Production
A chemical solution applied to your skin will get to work immediately by exfoliating dead skin cells and trigger a chain reaction to the tissue under the surface of your skin. As the outermost layer of your skin (the epidermis) begins to peel, the skin cells underneath will be stimulated and will grow and rise to the surface. Along the way, collagen production in your body will be stimulated to enhance the structure of your skin and provide you with enhanced skin support.
As we age, the collagen generation process in our bodies begins to slow, which can increase the amount of loose skin, wrinkles, and fine lines we develop. The collagen boost will reverse and improve the appearance of these aging signs, which will provide you with a youthful glow and radiance.
Reduce Acne and Improve the Appearance of Scars
Chemical peels penetrate deeply into the layers of your skin and work to unclog pores and improve the appearance of post-breakout hyperpigmentation.
Chemical peels can help keep the skin clean, exfoliated, and fresh, leading to less acne breakouts especially among teens and young adults who suffer from acne. Chemical peels are also beneficial to adults who have post-acne scarring or hyperpigmentation as regular chemical peels will diminish scarring to provide you with a smoother, more even complexion.
Enhance the Effectiveness of Skin Care Products
If you follow a regular skin care routine consisting of serums, lotions, and creams that help deliver active ingredients such as retinol, vitamins, and antioxidants to the skin, chemical peels can play a massive role in increasing their effectiveness. This is because the chemical peel will eliminate dead skin cells at the surface of your skin, allowing for optimal absorption of your skincare products to deliver the benefits to the deepest layers of the skin where they work the most effectively.
It is important to remember that not all chemical peels are made equal. While some milder peels are only strong enough to treat skin issues at the surface of your skin, others can address concerns at the deepest layers.
