Is a Chemical Peel What You’ve Been Needing?
- Posted on: Feb 15 2019
If you are looking for something to add to your current skin care routine, then you may want to consider getting regular chemical peels. Even though your at-home skin care regimen may be helping you with certain concerns, sometimes your skin needs an extra boost to help reveal smoother, clearer, more youthful looking skin.
What Are chemical Peels?
Chemical peels use a chemical like glycolic acid to target the top few layers of the skin. By placing a thin layer of a chemical over the top of the skin, it will create a controlled injury which will encourage the skin to create newer, healthier skin in the process. Typically, chemical peels are used to treat patients with sunspots, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, or even some scarring.
Why Chemical Peels?
There are a variety of skin resurfacing treatments that are available including microdermabrasion, aser, and you guessed it, chemical peels. One of reasons why we recommend chemical peels is because they are good for almost every skin type which means that you lil more than likely make an excellent candidate for one of our peels. Similar to other skin resurfacing treatments, we can target different layers of the skin with chemical peels by using stronger or lighter concentrations. For instance, you want us to target deeper sun spots or acne scars, then we may use a stronger concentration which will target deeper layers of skin.
When our patients add regular chemical peels to their skin care routine, they typically notice better results.
