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.
