What Are The Benefits Of A Chemical Peel?

For younger and healthier skin, or to correct any skin irregularities, a chemical peel is a great choice. There are many types of chemical peels available, ranging from gentle and temporary to more intensive. For those who want to correct facial skin conditions or irregularities, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, or who just want an overall fresher glow, you may be a good candidate for a chemical peel!

What is a Chemical Peel?

There are many different kinds of chemical peels available but they all work similarly, albeit with varying degrees of depth. A chemical peel is used to remove the outer, damaged layer of skin in order to give you a more youthful, healthy glow. There are three different levels of facial peels:

  • Light depth: A light peel usually contains beta-hydroxy acid. This exfoliates the upper layer of the skin. A light peel is a good option for those with oily skin, or blocked pores as it gently unblocks pores and lessens the production of oil.
  • Medium depth: A medium peel uses Tricholoacetic acid in order to improve the look of fine lines, and uneven pigmentation.
  • Deep peel: The strongest of all the peels uses Phenol acid in order to correct deep wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, and facial growths. Phenol peels give long lasting results but come with a longer recovery time.

What are the Benefits?

Facial peels come with many benefits, such as:

Clearer, younger looking skin.

  • Even skin pigmentation.
  • Brighter, lighter skin.
  • Correction of age marks, and sun damage.
  • Treatment of Melasma, or other pigmentation conditions.
  • Even out fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Reduce the appearance of facial scars, such as acne scars.
  • Unblock pores.
  • Decrease pore size.
  • Stimulate collagen production, which creates younger, firmer skin.

Chemical peels are a safe and quick procedure with recovery time ranging from one to three weeks depending on the depth of the peel. To ensure the safest and most effective results, chemical peels should be administered by a specialist.
