Now that summer is behind us and the long dark days of winter are her, it's the perfect time to get a chemical peel. There is really no better way to remove all the damage caused by the summer sun and being outdoors. And with the right chemical peel and the proper daily skin care regimen, you could find yourself with the smoothest, most radiant look you’ve ever had. If that’s not enough to convince you, here’s seven more reasons to get a chemical peel:
1. Evens out your skin tone.
Blotchy skin, melasma and hyperpigmentation can create an uneven skin tone and age you significantly. A chemical peel can penetrate deep enough to remove the layer of darker skin to smooth your skin tone, giving it a more youthful appearance. Pair a series of chemical peels with a skin brightener to really see a difference.
2. Removes signs of photo-aging.
Exposure to UV rays is a major cause of fine lines and wrinkles. Chemical peels remove the layer of skin that is affected by sun damage to leave behind a fresh and smooth layer of new skin.
3.Helps with acne management.
If you’re suffering from acne, a chemical peel may be a valuable part of your treatment program. Lighter peels such as Lactic Acid and Jessner’s Peels are more appropriate for sensitive and acne-prone skin and can help clear up inflammation and reduce the appearance of dark acne scars after a few months of treatment. Use peels in addition to an acne control system for greater results!
4. A peel helps brighten and lighten damaged skin.
Sun damage, poor diet, stress or even a lack of rest can leave you with a dull and ruddy complexion. Chemical peels can brighten up your skin quickly, giving it a radiant glow.
5. Downtime is minimal.
Downtime basically means the period of time your skin is still peeling after a chemical peel. When compared to other ablative services, chemical peels require little downtime for great results. It can vary from zero to 7 days for a light peel and 14 days for a deep peel. You can further reduce downtime by exfoliating properly. Use a gentle enzyme peeling gel to quicken the peeling process so the new skin is exposed sooner.
6. It doesn't take much time.
The process of applying the chemical peel solution rarely takes longer than 15-20 minutes. You can be in and out of your skin care professional’s office within an hour.
7. Stimulates collagen growth.
Chemical peels stimulate collagen production. Because collagen is a building block of skin tissue, it helps skin feel firm and reduces laxity. Additional collagen also means fewer lines and wrinkles, which is always a plus.
