A chemical peel may sound intimidating if you’re not familiar with what it involves. In reality though, they are an effective remedy for a myriad of skin problems, including wrinkles, acne, and hyperpigmentation. A chemical peel might be the solution if you’re looking for a way to get even pigment, and smoother, younger-looking skin.
Here are 4 of the best things about getting a chemical peel:
- Reduce Acne: According to studies, chemical peels with salicylic acid suppress acne by up to 47-75 percent, and peels containing glycolic acid vastly help in reducing acne in 50-95 percent of patients. Since acne is usually a surface-level skin issue, most chemical peels for acne are mild.
- Fix Wrinkles and Fine Lines: Chemical peels strip off the top layer of skin to expose a new layer that is fresh, and wrinkle-free, reducing the presence of fine lines and wrinkles. Surface wrinkles can be addressed with a mild peel.
- Lighten Scars: A higher strength peel will affect the skin at a deeper level and can reduce both surface acne and scarring. In one clinical trial, a phenol peel was shown to minimize acne scars in 100 percent of patients, with the average severity of the scars increasing by a mean of 75.12 percent.
- Heal Sun Damage: Do you know the ultraviolet radiation from the sun is responsible for up to 90% of the symptoms of rapid aging? Chemical peels, will help heal and reverse the effects of sun damage on your skin. To maximize results, take sun exposure seriously and wear a decent sunblock when going outside.
A chemical peel encourages the development of new, healthy skin. This enhances the skin’s overall tone and texture, which gives you a brighter, younger-looking glow. To get started, schedule a consultation with us here at Advanced Skin Fitness.
