A chemical peel is a special solution that’s used to enhance the skin’s overall texture by eliminating the damaged outer layer. Compared to other facial treatments, it’s an economical and non-invasive approach to improve the appearance of acne scars and to control acne as well. In addition to just women, more and more men today are also using chemical peels in order to enhance the look and feel of their face.
How Chemical Peels Work
A unique chemical solution is applied to the patient’s skin and works by dissolving the outer layers of the epidermis. Because the older tissue dissolves, the skin is able to heal itself by enabling new tissue to emerge, which leaves the skin feeling fresh and smooth overall.
The actual strength of the chemical peel will vary depending on your needs. There are superficial peels, medium peels and deep peels that are each designed to treat certain skin conditions. We will also take into account whether or not you have sensitive skin. Our team will work with you to determine the safest and most effective chemical peel for your needs.
Best Benefits of a Chemical Peel
Known as one of the easiest and least complicated ways to improve the overall appearance of the skin, a chemical peel can provide several benefits to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin.
Diminishes Acne Scars
A mild solution can greatly help diminish the effects of acne scars on the skin and can even decrease the blemishes as well.
Treats Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Lotions, serums, and creams can only treat the skin so much. However, chemical peels provide a much quicker way to get wrinkle-free, smoother skin.
Improves Skin Texture
Chemical peels are designed to exfoliate the surface of the skin gently, thereby increasing skin cell turnover resulting in better texture.
Quick and Easy Treatment
Often called the ‘lunchtime peel’, professional chemical peels yield less downtime and virtually no time to recover.
Helps Sun Damaged Skin and Boosts Collagen Growth
Chemical peels promote skin healing by dissolving the top layers of skin. This key process diminishes the dark spots of sun-damaged skin for a more even skin tone. In addition, through the process of exfoliation, both cell renewal and collagen production are naturally stimulated.
Types of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels vary based on a person’s need. Depending on the desired goal, different solutions produce specific results, such as diminished scarring, smoother skin, or a clearer complexion. At Dermatology Associates, we offer SkinMedica Vitalize and Rejuvenize peels.
