If your skin is suffering due to the presence of acne scars, sun damage, or lines and wrinkles, you should consider undergoing a chemical peel treatment. Facials are a great way to revitalize the skin, and chemical peels are no exception. This powerful form of skin rejuvenation helps to remove damaged skin tissue so that your body has the opportunity to replace it with fresher, more youthful skin that shows fewer imperfections.
What Is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are medical-grade facials that we can apply to your skin to remove damaged skin tissue. Your body responds to this treatment by creating new skin tissue that has fewer imperfections. Chemical peels come in three basic forms: light, medium, and deep. The type that works best for you can be determined at your initial consultation.
What Type of Peel Is Best Suited for Brightening the Complexion?
Facials containing mild acids like lactic and glycolic acids are typically used for light peels. This type of peel is a form of exfoliation that removes the buildup of cellular debris on the surface of your skin. By removing this sort of inorganic material, we are restoring the natural radiance of your skin. Acne and sun damage are typically addressed with this type of peel.
What Peel Works Best for Signs of Aging?
If you are dealing with the development of fine lines and wrinkles, an Age-Defying Peel may benefit you. This peel not only reduces wrinkles and fine line, it also hydrates and smooths your skin’s texture for improved radiance.
How Should I Prepare to Get the Best Results?
There are a few things that you can do both before and after your peel to ensure that you obtain optimal results. You could exfoliate your skin before your peel to acclimate it to the stronger form of treatment. You should also remain hydrated before and after your peel, since moist skin is less vulnerable to unnecessary damage. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask our professionals.
Additionally, it is important that you avoid any activities that result in excessive skin drying. Refrain from vigorous physical exercise, hot showers, or anything that could dehydrate you. Drink plenty of fluids in the days and weeks after your chemical peel treatment since dry skin is more vulnerable to being damaged.
