One of the simplest skin rejuvenation procedures, chemical peels are performed to lift away dead and damaged epidermal cells. This not only results in a refreshed appearance, but also encourages newer, healthier skin growth. Several different peel treatments are available, the difference between them being the strength of the acid solution used. Chemical peel treatments result in a smoother, more wrinkle-free skin surface, so they are a good way to minimize the appearance of fine wrinkles and crow’s feet.
Chemical peels also help reduce the appearance of various discolorations including age spots, injury and acne scars, and even freckles. Before deciding to have this treatment performed, however, it’s crucial to consult with us. After we examine the facial features, we can determine the proper peel treatment and give the client reasonable outcome predictions.
Removing the Epidermal Layer
Peel treatments have been performed for countless centuries. In fact, the Romans found this to be a suitable skin-smoothing treatment 2,000 years ago. Today’s methods involve the application of a special solution to the skin surface. The solution safely damages the epidermal layer.
This stimulates the production of replacement cells. The epidermis is actually formed from below and moves upward to take the place of older tissues. This process is accelerated when a peel treatment is performed.
The Benefits of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels can be performed in the comfort of our office and do not require invasive measures. They are versatile in that they can be used to address multiple different skin issues. A consultation will be necessary to determine whether a lighter or deeper chemical peel is a suitable option for the correction of damaged facial skin.
Most of our clients report continued improvement in the facial features for weeks and weeks following a peel treatment at our office. The newer tissue that develops is rich in collagen, so the surface is suppler and tauter than before the treatment. Many of our clients choose to have a periodic follow-up peel treatment performed on a regular basis.
