Nothing can leave you looking tired and washed out quicker than a dull complexion. Not only that but dull dry skin buildup also makes any fine lines or wrinkles really stand out. The places that this is most noticeable is on the face, neck, and hands. With chemical peels, you can easily start your fall off with glowing, younger-looking skin.
Two Levels of Chemical Peels
Level I- This level of peel requires less recovery time earning it the nickname of “lunchtime peel.” This is because it is less intrusive, making it safe for most skin types. Topical acids are applied that penetrate the outer layers of the skin to provide gentle exfoliation. This will remove that outer layer of dead, dry skin leaving your skin softer and with a brighter complexion and more even skin tone.
Level II- This level of peel uses stronger acids to penetrate deeper into the skin and so is a bit more invasive and may require just a little more recovery time. This deeper penetration provides more dramatic effects for your skin. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is reduced and mild scarring and age spots are faded.
What Are The Benefits?
Chemical peels can provide several benefits, the most widely known being younger-looking skin. They can also provide lightening of freckles and age spots for a more even skin tone, as well as help to improve some types of acne. Mild scarring can also be reduced with chemical peels, and they can also reduce the appearance of large pores to give your skin a smoother appearance.
Do They Really Work? Are They Safe?
Chemical peels were first used in the 1800s. Back then the procedure may have been a little bit scary, but today’s chemical peels are simple, safe, and effective. The acids used are specially formulated to be gentle and just the right concentration to provide the desired results. They provide safe and effective treatment of multiple skin issues.
