Chemical peels are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. As such, many people have discovered the benefits of chemical peels. See some of those benefits for yourself and learn other helpful information about chemical peels below!
With chemical peels, a chemical solution is applied to the skin that removes the uppermost layers of the skin. In effect, the chemical peel removes damaged skin cells and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and discolorations. After the chemical peel removes the upper skin layers, a smoother, healthier, and younger-looking layer of skin emerges.
The chemicals in chemical peels consist of varying types of acids that penetrate the skin to varying depths and cause the skin to peel. As such, chemical peels are classified according to light, medium, and deep peels.
Light chemical peels remove the outer layer of your skin, also known as your epidermis. Medium chemical peels remove the epidermis and parts of the dermis or middle layer of skin. In contrast, deep chemical peels remove even more of the dermis and are only used to treat deep wrinkles, scars, or precancerous growths.
Chemical peels are a great cosmetic treatment for many individuals. Here are some of the many benefits they can provide for you:
Reduced fine lines and wrinkles: While chemical peels do not remove wrinkles, they can minimize their appearance by removing the outer layers of skin that lack elasticity and firmness. The skin that grows back will have higher amounts of collagen and elastin, which are two of the most important proteins in your skin for maintaining a firm and smooth look and feel.
Improved acne appearance: Chemical peels can help with acne by breaking down plugged hair follicles, decreasing oil production, killing bacteria, reducing inflammation, and increasing the absorption of topical treatments.
Diminished scars and sun damage: Acne scars occur when excess collagen is produced to repair lesions from acne. As a result, hypertrophic scars appear on the skin that is bumpy and raised. Sun damage, or too much UV exposure to the face, can cause brown or grey hyperpigmentation marks on the skin. Chemical peels help with these skin issues by removing the layers they affect so the new layer of skin can emerge smooth and clear. Better skin tone and texture: Chemical peels can help your skin grow back with a brighter complexion and smoother texture.
Increased effectiveness of skin care products: Since chemical peels remove dead skin cells and excess oils in your skin, the new layer of skin will be more effective at absorbing skin care products.
When a licensed aesthetician performs a chemical peel, the chemical peel can be very good for your skin! While it’s true that the peel damages the outer layers of the skin, the damage is controlled and serves to improve the health and appearance of your skin.
The length of time that the results from chemical peels last vary according to the depth of the peel and how well your skin responds to treatment. Light, superficial peels typically last between one and two months, while medium peels can last between two to six months. Comparatively, the results from a deep chemical peel can last up to ten years. Deep chemical peels also have a much longer recovery period than light or medium peels.
As for the procedure, a chemical peel session can take anywhere from half an hour to one hour and a half, or 30 to 90 minutes.
