What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

Are you thinking about getting a chemical peel? If so, you may be wondering what are the benefits of a chemical peel, and if getting one is really worth it.

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a skin resurfacing treatment that improves the appearance of the skin by exfoliating dead skin cells. This is done by applying a chemical solution to the skin that removes the old, dull skin cells on the surface. Chemical peels vary in strength, as they can be light, medium, or deep, depending on how deeply the chemical solution penetrates the skin.

Benefits of a chemical peel

Chemical peels provide numerous benefits for the skin.

A chemical peel can:

  • Reduce sun damage and hyperpigmentation. A peel can reduce the appearance of sun spots, age spots, and other pigmentation issues that can age the skin.
  • Minimize the appearance of wrinkles. A medium peel can soften the appearance of mild to moderate wrinkles.
  • Smooth the texture of the skin. Removing the topmost layer of the skin reveals the newer, brighter skin cells below, so the skin looks smoother and clearer.
  • Stimulates collagen production and increases cell turnover. This makes the skin firmer and more youthful.
  • Make skin care products work better. Skin care products are able to penetrate deeper, since the barrier of the top skin layer is no longer there.

A chemical peel is an effective procedure that should be performed by an experienced medical professional, such as a board certified dermatologist (learn more).
