Is your skin suffering from the effects of sun damage or the aging process? Problems like sunspots, wrinkles, scars, and more can be treated using chemical peels that remove damaged skin tissue and encourage the formation of fresh skin.
Peels for Skin Rejuvenation
Chemical peels are medical-grade solutions containing some form of an acid in a solution that is applied to the patient’s skin for a specified amount of time. There are not too many skin conditions that peels cannot treat. The list includes scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, poor skin texture, wrinkles, and more.
Poor Skin Texture
A superficial chemical peel is most often used for skin conditions like light lines and wrinkles, superficial acne scars, and skin that appears dull and lifeless. The stratum corneum skin layer is the very outer part of your skin composed of inorganic material like dead skin cells. This material normally sloughs off but can build up in certain cases. This tends to block the innate radiance of your skin. A superficial peel can remove this buildup and noticeably brighten your complexion.
Superficial peels do not require much downtime. One potential drawback is that they are mild in nature, meaning that multiple applications may be necessary. However, it may be best to simply skip ahead to a stronger form of peel in that case.
Mild Wrinkles and Scars
Medium peels are often used to treat light to moderate wrinkles, mild scars, and hyperpigmentation. In some cases, having a medium peel means that you may need to undergo some type of sedation and a small amount of downtime.
Deep Scars and Wrinkles
As you can imagine, stronger acid solutions are commonly used in deep chemical peels for more stubborn skin complaints like deeper wrinkles, stretch marks, uneven pigmentation, and deep scars caused by acne or trauma. Deep peels are normally only used in one instance due to their powerful effects. They are extremely effective at reducing or eliminating skin problems that reach deeper into the skin.
After you have undergone a chemical peel treatment, you will want to lock in your results and ensure that your skin is protected while it heals. It’s important to keep your skin protected at all costs during this time in order to achieve the best results.
