You should consider getting a chemical peel if you want to improve the texture and tone of your skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, acne, and sun damage, as well as boost collagen production, all in one treatment. By removing the outermost layers of dead skin cells, a chemical peel can leave you with smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin.
A chemical peel works by applying a chemical solution to the skin, which causes the outermost layers of dead skin cells to peel off, revealing fresh, new skin underneath. The chemical solution used can vary in strength and composition depending on the desired level of exfoliation and the specific skin concerns being addressed.
The depth and intensity of the peel depend on the type of peel and the individual’s skin type and sensitivity. The process typically takes about 30-45 minutes, and the new skin that is revealed is often smoother, brighter, and more even in tone and texture. The skin may be temporarily sensitive or reddened after the peel, but with proper aftercare, the results can last for several weeks or even months.
