Are You a Good Candidate for a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels allow your skin to shed the old layer and reveal a younger, more vibrant one underneath. In addition to removing dead skin cells, chemical peels can slough off the outer layer of your epidermis to regenerate faster for glowing, youthful skin.

Benefits of Chemical Peels

1. Treat Acne.

When skin is inflamed, dead skin cells and excess oil can build up on the surface. It can lead to fatty acid build-up and bacterial infections on your face. It can lead to more problems in the future and can help alleviate acne by removing all these dead skin cells and excess oil.

2. Radiant Skin Tone

As you get older, the brightness in your skin can fade, especially on your face and neck, where there is more exposure to the sun. A chemical peel can help give your skin a more even-toned look by removing the outer layer of dull skin to reveal a new layer of bright, healthy skin.

3. Prevent Signs of Aging

As skin ages, wrinkles and sagging skin begin to appear on your face and body. A chemical peel can help reduce the appearance of these wrinkles by revealing new cells underneath. Chemical peels can remove the outer layer of dead skin cells that build up and make your face look older than it should. The newly revealed cells can create a smoother and more lifted appearance.

4. Eliminate Scars

Scars can appear on your skin due to aging or accidents such as burns or rashes. Severe acne can also leave long-lasting scars. A chemical peel can help fade the scar tissue and discoloration that appear by stimulating new skin cells to grow.

5. Improve Skin Elasticity.

Your skin’s ability to bounce back and return to its normal state is affected as you age. Skin loses elasticity as it ages, making it more prone to wrinkles and sagging or droopiness on the face. A chemical peel can help your skin regain some of its elasticity so that you may see fewer creases or folds on the skin.

6. Lighten Age Spots & Discoloration

Chemical peels remove the top layer of skin known as the epidermis to get rid of hyperpigmentation spots without causing scarring in the process. It is very effective in getting rid of dark spots or age spots.
