Depending on the type of treatment you select, a peel can reverse the signs of aging, refine and rejuvenate the skin and help you look younger. Chemical skin peels can be chosen for specific types of skin and challenges specific to you. They can brighten skin tone, reduce acne scars, improve facial texture and erase fine lines and wrinkles.
Safe, non-invasive and affordable, skin peels are one of the most common treatments we perform here at Skintherapy in Salt Lake City. Could one of these innovative procedures help you achieve your goals for looking better and feeling more confident?
What Are Chemical Peels?
The mechanism of action used in skin peels removes damaged outermost layers of the skin through the controlled application of a specific chemical solution. To perform this procedure, an esthetician applies specially formulated chemicals to the skin, allowing the solution to remain on the skin for a designated amount of time. The solution is then rinsed away or neutralized with the application of a second solution.
Different types of peels penetrate the skin to different levels, ranging from superficial to deep. Superficial treatments address the outermost layers of skin, whereas medium peels penetrate through the epidermis to the outermost layer of the dermis. Deep chemical peels penetrate even further, to affect deeper layers of the dermis.
After a peel, the affected tissue sloughs off and then regenerates, leaving you with fresh, younger looking skin.
What Can Chemical Peels Accomplish?
Depending on the specific treatment, peels can be used to accomplish a wide range of goals.
You can use these procedures to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You can choose chemical peels for acne scars, reduce age spots and minimize old sun damage. You can also choose chemical peels for hyperpigmentation
Other benefits of these treatments include improved skin hydration.
What Type of Chemical Peel Is Right for You?
Although you can do your own research to see what might be right for you, consulting with a skincare professional is the only way to know which chemical peels are appropriate for you.
Some types of peels are not appropriate for certain skin types. For example, people who have highly pigmented skin may not achieve the results they seek, or their skin could permanently lighten.
You may also need to take specific steps before and after this procedure – such as staying out of the sun and wearing a full-spectrum, high-SPF sunscreen. You may also need to use a special moisturizer and use other recommended skin care products until your skin returns to normal.
