Here at Aesthetic Health, many of our patients have heard of chemical peels, but may not be aware of just how much of a positive effect these peels can have on the skin. During treatment, a chemical solution is used to get rid of dead skin cells, with the strength of the solution varying depending on the patient’s specific needs. However, there is more than one benefit to choosing a peel. Have a look below at what our patients have achieved.
- Rejuvenated, Brighter Skin
Chemical peels encourage dead skin cells to shed, flake, or peel off, which reveals the fresher, newer skin from underneath. With less exposure to factors that can cause dull or tired skin over time, skin takes on brighter, fresher, and healthier appearance.
2. Stimulating Collagen Production
Chemical peels help stimulate the production of collagen, a protein found in the skin and protective tissues. Collagen is made naturally in the body, and responsible for a whole host of reparative functions. However, as we age, the production of collagen begins to slow, which is why fine lines, sagging, and other skin issues begin to appear. Chemical peels help to kick-start collagen production, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
3. Improving tone and texture
By aiding in the removal of dead skin on the outermost layers, chemical peels can significantly improve the look and feel of the skin’s texture. Chemical peels can help smooth the skin, improve acne, reduce the appearance of discoloration and hyperpigmentation, help conceal superficial scars, and increase the hydration of the skin, reducing the risk of dryness.
4. At-Home Skin Care
Chemical peels can, surprisingly, even increase the effectiveness of the skin-care products you use on a daily basis in the home. By removing layers of dead skin, any congestion is also tackled, which allows products to penetrate deeper and have more of an impact than before.
