What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

If you are looking to give your skin a serious overhaul and restore a youthful, glowing complexion, a chemical peel may be just what you need. But what exactly is a chemical peel and what are the benefits.

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a skin resurfacing treatment that uses a chemical solution to exfoliate the upper layers of the skin. Exfoliating dead skin cells and other debris leaves the skin smoother, and more radiant. There are different types of chemical peels – light, medium, or deep, and the strength used depends on the specific skin issue being treated, and the condition of the skin.

What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

  1. Evens out skin tone: A chemical peel lightens dark areas of skin such as age spots and sun spots, giving the skin a more even tone.
  2. Treats wrinkles: A chemical peel can reduce the appearance of mild to moderate wrinkles.
  3. Improves skin texture: Chemical peels remove the outermost layer of the skin, resulting in softer, smoother, brighter skin.
  4. Stimulates new collagen and skin cells: Fresh new collagen and skin cells make the skin firmer and more youthful.
  5. Skin care products work better. Removing dead skin cells provides a clean slate so skin care products are able to penetrate deeper, and work better.
  6. Minimal side effects: Some people experience irritation and redness after a chemical peel but this usually resolves in a short time.
