Are Chemical Peels the Secret to Flawless Skin?

There’s a saying, “beauty is skin deep.” There is some truth to this adage, especially when you’re talking about skin beauty. The difference between dull, damaged skin and radiant, rejuvenated skin is just one layer. In other words, your skin’s beauty may hide under the damaged skin surface that you can eliminate with a chemical peel.

Here are some reasons why a chemical peel is the best way to reveal your perfect, flawless skin.

Reduce Acne and Softens the Scars

Chemical peels penetrate deep into the dermis to help unclog pores while also resolving blackheads and reducing the presence of post-acne scars. Another benefit is the chemicals will linger in the pores and continue to keep them clear for days afterward, helping to limit acne breakouts.

With acne being the most common skin disorder affecting mostly teens and young adults, chemical peels can help keep their skin clean and fresh. Also, for adults suffering the effects of post-acne scarring, a continuous chemical peel regimen will systematically diminish scars for a smoother skin texture.

Increase Collagen Production

Immediately, a chemical solution will start to eliminate dead skin cells and trigger a chain reaction to the underlying tissues. As the epidermis peels, underlying skin cells begin to grow, multiply and rise to the surface. This process will also stimulate collagen production to enhance skin support for a smooth skin surface.

With age, collagen regeneration decreases causing an increase in loose skin, wrinkles and fine lines. With a boost in collagen, these aging effects will diminish, providing a youthful skin glow to enhance your facial beauty.

Skin Care Products Work Better

If you have a home skin care routine which includes serums, creams, or lotions to deliver necessary nutrients like Retinol, and vitamins A and E, a chemical peel will open a clear path for deep penetration where your skin care products will be most effective.

Diminish Dark Undereye Pigmentation

Many patients deal with dark pigmentation caused by their undereye concealer. A chemical peel has been known to eliminate the necessity of using this concealer.

With the use of a chemical peel safely applied under the eyes, dark pigmentation circles are often the result of pigment piled in multiple layers. With a series of chemical peels, some patients experience results which include these dark circles fading.

Best Results

Chemical peels may come in superficial, moderate or deep penetration levels depending on the severity of the skin condition treated. Superficial peels have milder results which last a few months while deep penetrations will provide a more dramatic outcome lasting several months to a few years.

It is best advised to keep a dedicated skin care routine for optimal results after your peel. This regimen may include facials, microdermabrasion, laser therapy or medical grade skin care products for home use.
