There’s a pretty good chance that you’ve heard of chemical peels before. They’re advertised on television and in magazines. But do you know what a chemical peel is, and how it can benefit your skin? Let’s jump right into those two questions and more below.
What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is just what it sounds like. Your face is covered with a chemical solution that is designed to cause the outer layer of skin to peel away. Chemical peels are a popular beauty treatment. In fact, they are the most commonly performed non-invasive beauty treatment in the U.S. A chemical peel is a multipurpose skin treatment that is used to treat various skin conditions such as acne, sun damage, and wrinkles.
Chemical peels offer a number of benefits, the most obvious of which is exfoliation that goes far beyond a simple facial scrub. A chemical peel also provides deep cleaning to rid your skin of dirt and oil that have accumulated in and on that dull outer layer of skin. Removing the outer layer of the skin stimulates the renewal of skin cells giving you a brighter, smoother complexion. Chemical peels lighten dark spots, fade scars, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Chemical peels also improve acne and help to heal sun damage. We could go on, but you’ve probably already got the picture. Chemical peels improve the overall health and appearance of your skin to leave you with a smooth, clear, youthful, and healthy glow.
What To Expect
You can expect to feel some mild discomfort during your peel. The chemicals may cause some minor stinging and burning which can persist for a short time following the treatment but it’s typically easy to manage with cool compresses and over-the-counter pain relievers. You’ll also experience some redness and peeling for a few days following your peel, so don’t schedule one too close to an important event or photo shoot. You’ll want to avoid sunlight for several days to protect the fresh delicate skin that the peel has uncovered and allow your skin time to recover.
