Have you noticed your skin is not as smooth, evenly textured or toned as when you were younger? Age changes how your skin looks and feels, especially with sun exposure. Photoaging from sun exposure can cause the skin to change color and the texture can become drier and rougher. One option to restore smoother, evenly toned skin is a chemical peel.
The term “chemical peel” can be misleading. There are often negative connotations that are linked with chemicals, but not all chemical reactions are bad. The chemical peel uses natural acids that have a reaction with the skin. They help release old skin cells that are damaged and bring forth new cells that appear more youthful. Some of the typical “chemicals” that are used in these peels are alpha hydroxy acid, beta-hydroxy acid and trichloroatic acid, all found in plants.
Benefits of a Chemical Peel
While there are different types of chemical peels using different types of acids, the main difference is in the strength. A milder chemical peel will not go as deep in skin rejuvenation as stronger peels, but it will have less side effects or downtime. However, all can have similar benefits, but on different levels:
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Smooth skin texture
- Minimize hyperpigmentation
- Reduce acne or acne scars
If you are looking for a treatment to give your skin a youthful boost, consider seeking a professional chemical peel. You want to ensure the clinic you choose has medically trained skin specialists to ensure safety and the best results. Consider a med spa at a reputable plastic surgery clinic to receive the best care for your skin with a rejuvenating chemical peel.
