The quest for smoother skin can lead down many different roads. Cosmetics, lasers, injections, surgery – all offer benefits that can help rejuvenate your skin and restore it to a more youthful appearance. But one treatment in particular, one with a whole range of positive effects, may be the secret to smoother, wrinkle-free and damage-reducing skin: the chemical peel.
A chemical peel, when performed by a skilled, highly trained, and licensed medical professional, is a safe and effective way to restore your skin to its natural beauty.
Its primary and most noticeable impact comes from the removal of damaged outer layers of skin to reveal fresh, smoother skin which hasn’t been damaged by the sun, wind, or other elements. But the positive impact of a chemical peel on skin tone and appearance goes beyond that. A chemical peel can result in smoother skin in numerous ways:
- Chemical peels make skin care products work better. If you put a washcloth over your face and applied your skin care products to the washcloth instead of your face, it wouldn’t do much good. Similarly, a chemical peel can remove the layer of dead skin that separates the healthy skin beneath from the products you apply. With nothing standing in their way, these products can be more effective in their restorative functions.
- Chemical peels can end acne. The acids used in peels not only remove that top layer of skin but also dive deeper into the skin, unclogging pores and eroding blackheads. One particular acid, salicylic acid, not only clears pores, it hangs around and keeps your pores unclogged and acne-free long after your peel.
- Chemical peels can soften scars. Removing the outer layer of skin can also improve the appearance of mild scarring, as the newly revealed skin will usually be smoother and appear less irregular.
- Chemical peels can reduce dark circles. Of the three main types of chemical peels involves the use trichloroacetic acid (TCA). TCA peels can be very effective in rejuvenating the skin below the eyes and reducing the prominence of the dark circles that sometimes appear under our eyes as we age.
