Have the cumulative effects of aging, sun damage, or scarring started to make you feel dissatisfied with what you see when you look in the mirror? A spotless, lineless, flawless complexion is lying just beneath the surface of your skin, just waiting to be revealed. Here are five reasons why a chemical peel is your secret weapon to getting perfectly clear, younger-looking skin.
Chemical Peels Have Healing Properties
Beauty experts have been using chemical peels to heal the skin for thousands of years. Exfoliating dead skin cells unclogs pores and makes room for more new skin cells to multiply and move up to the surface of the skin. These younger, healthier skin cells have brighter tones than the dead skin cells they replace. And, the chemicals used in the peel stimulate the natural production of new collagen, which fills in scars and makes the skin more resilient.
Peels Make Your Skin-Care Products Work Better
After a peel, you will notice your skin is not only more radian but more receptive to your topical skin-care products. Because there are no old, dead cells getting in the way, your daily moisturizer and other anti-aging creams and serums will absorb more quickly and thoroughly, leaving your skin deeply hydrated and ready to stand up to life’s challenges.
Chemical Peels Soften Acne Scars and Minimize Breakouts
Acne – and the scars it leaves behind – can be unsightly and uncomfortable, and frequent flare-ups can negatively affect your self-esteem. Cosmetic chemical peel treatments can address acne and smooth residual scarring for a clearer, brighter complexion.
Treatments Are Customizable
Peels are not a one-size-fits-all procedure. There are three levels of peels available, ranging from mild to strong. You can choose the one that is the best fit for your lifestyle, skin texture, and the concerns you wish to improve. They are also low-risk and safe to use for every skin tone without worrying about hyperpigmentation.
Peels Improve Skin Discoloration
Conditions such as sun damage, age spots, freckles, and melasma cause an uneven skin tone and texture. By removing the outer layers of the skin, where these superficial problems occur, chemical peels significantly improve these visible skin imperfections. Getting a peel can also smooth away the look of fine lines and wrinkles, enhancing your anti-aging efforts.
Is a Chemical Peel Right for You?
Chemical peels are a safe and effective way to turn back the clock on years of aging, scarring, and damage. Removing impurities from your pores will give you smoother, tighter skin and leave you with a healthy glow.
Though you will notice a distinct improvement after only one treatment, you may see even better results after a series of peels spaced several weeks apart. This type of deep exfoliation can further stimulate cellular turnover and the skin’s production of collagen.
