You can peel a banana, you can peel out in your car, but what about getting a chemical peel. With the turn for the more naturalist movement occurring within grocery stores and the beauty market, more women are leaning away from the word “chemical” and are embracing the word “organic.” However, chemical peels are nothing to be scared about. Here are 3 perks of getting a chemical peel that will make you want to schedule an appointment today.
No matter how much toothpaste you put on your acne marks or how much makeup you put on your scars, acne is a nuisance that for most women, just won’t go away. Chemical peels help to exfoliate the top layers of skin, unclogging pores, and encouraging new skin to develop. Additionally, chemical peels help to stimulate the growth of new skin in order to eliminate scar tissue and leave your skin without the strong appearance of acne scars.
To eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, a chemical peel using phenol can be used in order to not only break down the top layers of skin but the middle layers as well, leaving you with smoother skin and the appearance of less wrinkles. The only downside to using a stronger chemical peel solution, is that your skin will be sensitive for the next few weeks and will flake and peel off.
- Sun Damage
Yes, those days of lying at the beach in your teens may have been worth it at the time, but the toll that the sun has on your skin as you get older, is apparent through sunspots across your face. If you’re feeling self-conscious about your sun damage, try a chemical peel. Depending on the severity of the damage, you will likely have to have several treatments and will have to get a stronger strength depending on how big and deep the spots are.
Due to their non-invasive nature, chemical peels are a great alternative to more complex procedures like laser treatments or fillers. If you are ambivalent about the chemicals used in the peels, speak with your dermatologist today.
