Chemical peel uses a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. It is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. Phenol, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) are used for this purpose. The precise formula used may be adjusted to meet each patient’s needs. Although chemical peel may be performed in conjunction with a facelift, it is not a substitute for such surgery, nor will it prevent or slow the aging process.
5 Reasons for Chemical Peels
Let’s face it, our face is the most unprotected body part; it takes a toll from environmental pollution, a direct hit from the sun’s rays and all while trying to keep from breaking out!
Here are 5 reasons why you should get a Chemical Peel:
1- Chemical Peels reverse the signs of aging
First and foremost, Chemical peels remove surface build-up & increase cellular proliferation. The very top layer of our skin is made up of non-living skin cells that build up on the surface that eventually give a “dull appearance.” Chemical peels help to loosen all of the dull build-up, while diminishing fine lines, softening wrinkles, smoothing texture & lightening hyperpigmentation. After just a few days of peeling, you will achieve a smooth and radiant glow.
2- Help reduce Breakouts
Chemical Peels help clear both inflamed and non-inflamed acne. There are many medical-strength acne focused chemical peels that provide antibacterial activity which ultimately leads to diminishing both white and blackheads. This is best achieved when completed every month and in conjunction with deep cleansing facials.
If you have uneven skin tone characterized by darkened areas of the skin, these discolorations are known as Hyperpigmentation that could be caused from harmful UVA and UVB sun rays or from an overproduction of melanin caused by a hormonal imbalance. Chemical peels that contain an acid blend can be used to diminish hyperpigmentation and imperfections from sun damage, Melasma, acne scars and freckling. With only 3 to 5 treatments along with a proper skin care regimen, you can expect amazing results.
4- Reduce Redness due to Sensitive Skin Conditions and/or Rosacea
Sensitive skin requires special care. For those struggling with redness, sensitive, reactive and rosacea skin conditions, Mandelic Acid (Enerpeel MA) is the Chemical peel designed just for you. Mandelic Acid is an AHA that has exfoliating properties, but doesn’t trigger erythema (redness & swelling). With an Enerpeel treatment plan, you will experience improved texture and pore size along with reduction of skin redness.
5-Chemical Peels Increase Collagen Production
And the final reason to undergo a Chemical Peel is that it will stimulate new cell turn over and improve surface texture and appearance. The exfoliating effect from the blended acid form stimulates new epidermal growth and collagen along with a more evenly distributed melanin. Results after a series of 3 treatments leaves your skin looking noticeably younger and radiant all while building new collagen!
