Are you looking older than your actual age because of the presence of facial wrinkles? Are skin problems like hyperpigmentation or sunspots taking a toll on your appearance? Many people have been helped my undergoing treatment with chemical peels when they are dealing with these types of skin problems. The treatment encourages your body to form new skin tissue to replace old, damaged skin at the surface.
How It Works
Chemical peels help to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, lines, acne scars, and abnormal pigmentation. You can have the procedure performed on your face, chest, and neck. The term itself denotes how it works: peels peel away some of the top layer of skin through the use of a chemical.
Your skin is constantly undergoing a process in which old skin cells fall away and are replaced by new, healthy ones. By undergoing a chemical peel treatment, we can speed up the process of breaking down skin bonds on the top layer of your skin. You might think of it as a greatly speeded-up process of natural exfoliation. Dead skin cells are sloughed off when the peel is removed, revealing new skin cells underneath that helps to heal and rejuvenate your skin. The result is skin that appears smoother, healthier, and more youthful than before.
Peels for Dull Skin Tone
If your skin is looking dull and lifeless, a light peel containing a chemical solution of alpha hydroxy, glycolic, or lactic acids can restore its luster. We apply this chemical solution to your skin to remove the buildup of dead skin cells and cellular debris found on its surface. This has an immediate brightening effect upon your complexion. Light chemical peels can also be used for the correction of superficial acne scars, light lines and wrinkles, and enlarged pores.
Light to Moderate Lines and Wrinkles
A medium peel is usually used for the treatment of light-to-moderate lines and wrinkles and some other forms of superficial skin problems. Medium peels not only remove the buildup of inorganic material on the surface of your skin, but they also peel away part of the lower epidermis skin layer. This encourages your body to form new skin tissue to replace old skin affected by problems like wrinkles, scars, and hyperpigmentation.
Deep Scars and Wrinkles
Deep chemical peels are needed in the case of stubborn skin problems like deep wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation. We use a chemical solution containing stronger acids like phenol or carbolic acid to remove the outer skin layer.
