What Are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are so popular because they provide so many different benefits. Different peels offer different kinds of results, which means that virtually anyone can undergo this treatment since we can customize it to each patient’s needs and goals.
Light peels help target specific skin conditions, as do medium and deep peels. The peel that is right for you all depends on your skin, goals, and skin needs, but regardless of which chemical peel you choose, you will get some amazing benefits.
It’s a Short Treatment
Everyone has a busy life, but at the same time, we’ve all been given the same 24 hours each day. What we do with those 24 hours reveals our priorities. Luckily, this treatment allows you to make your skin a priority without monopolizing all of your time. Typical peels take 30 minutes to complete, so you have no excuse as to why you can’t schedule a treatment that, in the end, will help improve your skin and your confidence.
You won’t have to alter your entire schedule or rearrange your day, and you won’t have to take any time off of work. You’ll get beautiful results from this quick and efficient treatment, and once it’s over, you can go about your day.
You’ll Get Smoother Skin
Skin texture is something many people don’t think about until they see their skin in natural sunlight. If you’ve noticed that your skin has a less than perfect texture, a chemical peel can improve that texture by adding volume and increasing collagen production. If fine lines, wrinkles, and facial folds have developed on the surface of your skin as a result of volume loss due to aging, regular peels can help smooth those lines.
It Helps Eliminate Breakouts
Anyone who has suffered from acne knows that it can be embarrassing; it can make you feel self-conscious, deeply affecting your confidence. Many different factors cause acne, including hormonal imbalances, stress, and bacteria on the skin’s surface. Many adults come to realize that teenagers aren’t the only ones who experience acne.
Acne affects many adults, and when it does, it can be hard to find a solution that works. A peel is a perfect solution to treat acne because it contains salicylic and glycolic acids that are designed to target breakouts, sometimes as soon as three to five days post-treatment. Specific peels can also be designed to help improve the appearance of acne scarring as well.

It Increases Collagen Production
Youth and collagen and go hand-in-hand. Peels help increase collagen production, especially those that contain glycolic acid. Collagen is the most important anti-aging protein in the body because it keeps your skin youthful, tight, toned, smooth, and well hydrated. Collagen loss leads to volume loss, affecting different areas of the face, including the forehead, the chin, the lips, and the cheeks.
Collagen loss can also result in loose and sagging skin, but when you increase collagen production, your skin will improve for the better. It will look healthier and brighter. Collagen production does take time, but the benefit is that you will continue to see gradual results well after your peel is over.
You Will Get Quick Results
If you have an event or an appearance that you want to look good for, and your skin isn’t where you want it to be, a peel is a perfect solution. It increases collagen production, which will take a few weeks. Still, after your peel is over, you will see an immediate improvement in the appearance of your skin’s hydration levels, overall health, tone, and texture.

They Can Be Combined With Other Treatments
Peels can also be combined with other treatments, like cosmetic injectables. They can be combined with neurotoxins designed to treat dynamic wrinkles and go well with dermal fillers, which add volume beneath the skin’s surface and other skin rejuvenating treatments.
They Treat Multiple Areas
The face is the most common area chosen for peel treatments, but they can address other areas as well. Many patients schedule peels to improve the skin on their necks, hands, chest, and even their backs. Peels can improve the skin in these areas, make the skin healthier, and prepare your body for a special event or a vacation where you plan on showing some extra skin.
What To Expect Post-Treatment
There are some ways that you can help enhance and improve your results once your peel is over. It’s important that you avoid touching your skin, especially if you experience any peeling. Some people are tempted to pick or pull at their skin, but it’s important that you leave it alone and let the natural peeling process occur.
Picking at your skin can cause scarring, which is the last thing that you want. Touching your skin after a peel can also encourage bacteria growth which can lead to acne.
Keep Your Hair Out of Your Face
After your peel, you want to keep your hair pulled away from your face. Keeping your hair pulled back can help you avoid touching your skin by trying to get your hair out of your face. It will also keep your skin clear of any potential product or dirt that could transfer from your hair to your skin. Additionally, it can help prevent any natural oils from your hair off of your skin.
Keep Your Skin Hydrated
Moisturizer is essential after a peel. During your initial consultation, be sure to let your aesthetician know what kind of products you use so that she can approve them for post-care use. Your skin will be sensitive for a few days after your treatment since a peel removes the top layer. As a result, you should avoid any product that contains ingredients that could irritate your skin.
It would be best if you also used a high-quality moisturizer, but don’t over-moisturize your face. Using too much moisturizer can be tempting, especially if you experience skin peeling since it can look like dry skin. Your aesthetician will recommend the best moisturizer for you to use post-treatment, as well as provide you with any additional product recommendations.
Wear a Sunscreen
Sunscreen is essential on a typical day; it’s even more important after a chemical peel. If you have sought out this treatment to reverse sun damage, you need to commit to sun safety habits to avoid future skin damage. Avoid excess sun exposure, and when you are in the sun, even if it’s the light coming in from a window, be sure to wear sunscreen and even a hat and sunglasses to keep your skin thoroughly protected from the sun’s damaging rays.
Sun exposure is the number one cause of premature aging. Protecting your skin from the sun is the easiest way to avoid premature aging and prevent the formation of new lines and wrinkles.
Not everyone peels after they undergo this treatment, but some people do. In order to get the best results, let your skin peel. Don’t touch your skin or try to pick at it, and avoid any products that could further irritate your skin aside from a gentle face wash, moisturizer, and sunscreen. Don’t exfoliate your skin in an attempt to try to speed the peeling process because you’ll only cause further damage.
If your skin does peel, wait until it has finished peeling to return to your everyday skin care routine. When you come in for your appointment, your aesthetician will let you know based on the customize peel chosen for your skin whether or not you can expect to peel.
