Chemical peels have long been a popular option for brightening, smoothing and rejuvenating the skin. These simple procedures are incredibly effective for producing a radiant glow, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and minimizing the appearance of enlarged pores, sun damage, age spots, and moderate acne scarring. Surprisingly, these treatments can even have a long-term impact on how well your skin responds to the cleansers, toners, and moisturizers you use at home.
Better Skin Care Product Penetration
During chemical peel procedures, special solutions are applied to the topmost layers of the skin to gently break down old, dry and damaged skin cells. The natural sloughing that follows these treatments invariably reveals the brighter, healthier and far more vibrant skin that lies just beneath. Given that no dead skin cells will be impeding the action of your skin care products following these treatments, any special cleansers and moisturizers that you’ve invested in will be able to penetrate the dermis much more deeply. This will allow these products to deliver essential nutrients all the way down to the foundation layers, which is exactly where they’re needed the most.
Encourage Your Skin to Act Younger
One of the most surprising benefits of chemical peels is their ability to teach the skin to act younger. Not only do these treatments minimize the signs of aging, but they also help undo some of the natural processes that contribute to facial aging. When people grow older, skin-supporting substances like hyaluronic acid and collagen decrease. Chemical peels incite a rejuvenating chain reaction by triggering the body’s inherent, healing abilities. The process causes the living cells beneath the topmost skin layers to move up and increase while simultaneously stimulating the enhanced production of both hyaluronic acid and collagen.
Get Rid of Sun Damage, Blotchy Patches, and Dark Spots
Chemical peels are short, simple, and entirely non-invasive procedures. Moreover, many of these treatments no longer entail extended periods of redness and peeling like they did in years past. Instead, the solutions that are used to affect the top of the skin are heavily infused with an impressive range of skin-renewing nutrients. This change has allowed for faster recovery times, fewer aftereffects, and expedited skin healing.
