A chemical peel is a cosmetic technique that involves your dermatologist applying a special chemical solution to your skin to improve your facial look. The chemical exfoliates your skin, and it eventually peels off. Chemical peels eliminate the top dead skin and cells, giving way to new skin that is smoother and less damaged. Chemical peels Albuquerque can address many skin disorders, including facial lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and melasma. Depending on your skin type and concern, your dermatologist can use a mild, medium, or deep peel. Chemical peels have many benefits, including:
Chemical peels eliminate fine lines and wrinkles
Chemical peels reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines. One session of a deep peel can give you optimal results. You may need several treatment sessions of mild and medium peels to eliminate your facial wrinkles and lines. Medium chemical peels can help eliminate medium fine lines. Ensure you avoid sunlight for several days to maintain long-term results.
They reduce acne scars
Chemical peels reduce acne breakouts and scarring from skin blemishes. By exfoliating your top skin, peels help unclog pores and eliminate blackheads from your skin surface. Chemical peels with salicylic and lactic acid work best for acne marks. Salicylic acid lingers in the skin pores, maintaining them clear for a prolonged period. Chemical peels contain specific ingredients that help your acne scars fade away.
Peels boost your skincare products
Chemical peels eliminate the dead skin and its cells, allowing new skin cells to move to the surface and giving way to new smoother skin. By exfoliating dead skin, collagen production is stimulated, improving skin elasticity. After the treatment, your skincare products will perform better as the top dead skin no longer exists. So the products easily penetrate your skin, giving better outcomes.
Reduces sun damage
Chemical peels help treat hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation makes your skin develop patches where some are darker than others. Sun damage can lead to aging effects such as facial lines and blotchiness. Chemical peels can help reduce such effects. A mild peel can treat sun spots and other skin pigmentation issues.
The treatment is customizable
There are different types of chemical peels containing varying ingredients. The various forms of peels make the treatment suitable for all skin types. During your treatment, your dermatologist carefully examines your skin to enable the provider to choose the best peel for your skin. The provider can mix different chemicals to treat your specific concern.
They control melisma
Melasma is a hyper-pigmentation issue. Some cases of melasma are very difficult to treat as it does not respond to certain treatments. Long-term hyper-pigmentation affects the self-esteem and social life of some individuals. Hormonal changes during and after pregnancy can also worsen your melasma. Chemical peels eliminate melasma permanently, leaving you with a rejuvenated look. They can also eliminate dark spots caused by pigmentation issues.
Chemical peels involve dermatologists using special chemicals to exfoliate and peel the topmost layer of your skin. The treatment can eliminate acne scars, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, control melasma, and boost skincare products.
