How Does a Chemical Peel Work?
A chemical peel uses acids applied to the skin to remove the outer layers of dead skin cells. These cells make the skin look uneven and dull. They also cannot absorb your skincare products well, making them less effective. A chemical peel breaks down these dead skin cells so they can be lifted away.
With the dull, lifeless skin gone, brighter and smoother skin can rise to the surface. This chemical exfoliation has the same effect as other forms of exfoliation, accelerating cell turnover and bringing new, fresh cells to the surface more quickly. Over time, results improve, and people see reductions in lines and wrinkles, signs of aging, and sun damage.
What are the Benefits of a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels can treat everything from acne scars and hyperpigmentation to deep signs of sun damage and aging. They can improve fine lines and wrinkles as well as dull, tired-looking skin. With a variety of intensities to suit your comfort level and your treatment needs, chemical peels make a great, customizable way to rejuvenate and exfoliate your skin.
