What Are The Facts You Need to Know About Chemical Peel?

When it comes to skin treatments, you deserve the very best. Chemical peel is one of the most effective skin rejuvenation treatments for those suffering from signs of sun damage or the aging process. They can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, uneven pigmentation, and more. The treatment can also be used on a wide range of areas like the face, chest, and neck.

What is a Chemical Peel?

True to their name, chemical peels are treatments that involve the use of a type of chemical peels process to take away the topmost portion of the skin. As skin cells mature, they rise to the top where dead skin cells normally slough off to make room for newer ones. In some cases, dead skin cells can build up on the surface of the skin. A peel can help remove this layer, or even portions of layers underneath, to encourage the formation of new skin tissue that displays fewer imperfections.

Is a Chemical Peel Right for Me?

A chemical peel treatment may benefit you if you are currently dealing with skin affected by wrinkles or sun damage, blotches, scars, stretch marks, enlarged pores, or some forms of skin growths. Other factors such as the texture and thickness of your skin, can influence if you would make a good candidate for chemical peels. Generally, if you are in good overall health and have realistic expectations and a positive attitude, you will more than likely make a good candidate for the treatment.

How is the Treatment Performed?

A peel treatment involves the application of a special type of chemical suspended within a solution to the treatment area. It can be applied gently or delivered more aggressively into the skin and the treatment area using a brush, swab, cotton pad, or sponge. The length of time that your peel will be in contact with your skin is based upon observations of how your skin responds during the treatment. How long does a chemical peel take? The procedures can take anywhere between 30 minutes and 90 minutes.How long does it take to recover from a chemical peel?
