We all have preferences when it comes to our favorite treatments. Some of us love facials and will choose to get pampered whenever possible. Alternatively, some of us want more results for the time we spend on treatments. Botox and other injectables can provide dramatic results as few other treatments can, and these treatments can truly become addictive.

Then, there are the patients who don’t want to be pampered or tweaked. They want beautiful skin that results from a chemical peel and don’t mind that they may need a little downtime to earn that beautiful skin. Keep reading to learn why people love chemical peels.

Results of Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are well-known for helping reverse the effects of sun damage, fine lines, and other skin conditions that come with age or trauma. Peels improve the appearance of skin by removing the dead skin cells on the top of your skin and promoting the growth of new ones. Chemical peels can be used on the face, the neck, the decollete, and even the back to treat fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, scarring from breakouts, and dark spots. You may want to come in for a series of peels, depending on the concerns you have.

Chemical Peels are for For Everyone

Nearly anyone can have a chemical peel, regardless of their skin type or color. While other treatments should only be used on certain skin tones, chemical peels are amazing for many skin types. Depending on your skin color or type, certain peels or certain treatments may be recommended for you.

Acids of Chemical Peels

There are many acids that can be utilized in a chemical peel, including but not limited to, alphahydroxy acids (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and phenol. After the peel is applied to your skin, you may experience a slight burning sensation for a few minutes.

Aftercare of Chemical Peels

Care for your skin gently, and try to avoid being too harsh with it. Avoid using active ingredients or exfoliating scrubs from your skincare routine until your skin has stopped peeling. Avoid the sun as much as possible, and wear sunscreen whenever you are outside.

Once we reach a certain age, the collagen production in our skin naturally starts to decrease and slow. Collagen is what gives our appearance a plump, youthful appearance, so when it’s gone we start to look a little more tired. It actually helps give structure to the cells and supports our skin. When that support is gone, what happens? Our skin loses volume, leaving us with drooping or sagging skin. And, if you smoke or spend a lot of time in the sun, you may have actually sped up that process. Ouch.

Thankfully, we don’t have to live with tired-looking or loose skin on our necks anymore. In fact, we can tighten skin and smooth away wrinkles, all without undergoing a costly, invasive surgery like a facelift.

SmoothLiftin Treatment

SmoothLiftin is an exclusive non-invasive treatment that heats up the skin from inside the mouth. Hear us out. This may sound strange, but the results speak pretty loud. Overall improvement of tightness and elasticity of the skin can be created, and there may even be an extra plumping effect. There is only minimal discomfort during the procedure.

How Does Skin Tightening Work?

The SP Dynamis Fotona laser uses an exclusive non-invasive laser technology to heat up tissue both on the surface and deep below the skin. Through a process called collagen induction, new collagen is formed. This creates a stronger foundation for the neck and lower face and helps smooth out wrinkles.
We are able to effectively stimulate collagen from the inside out. And, it’s a more well-rounded treatment than others, because this affects the deeper layers and the surface of the skin.

How Many SmoothLiftin Treatments Will I Need?

In order to get optimal results, we recommend that you get a minimum of three treatments. These are scheduled between four to six weeks apart. Maintenance treatments may be suggested about once a year to continue the collagen regeneration process.
