Chemical peels have numerous benefits for your skin and are a great way of making it look clearer and more youthful. Here are a few ways chemical peels can rejuvenate your skin.
Chemical peels remove the outer layer of the skin, revealing in its place a younger and smoother layer. A light to moderate peel significantly reduces wrinkles and leaves the skin looking fresh and vibrant.
Acne affects half the adult population in the US, with over 50% of women above the age of 25 especially prone to it. Studies on the efficacy of chemical peels for treating acne have revealed that those containing salicylic acid or glycolic acid can significantly reduce acne, with the majority of the patients observing vast improvement.
In addition to reducing acne, chemical peels are also very effective in diminishing acne scars left behind after a vicious acne attack. Mild scarring and surface acne can be treated by moderated chemical peels, which penetrate deep into the skin. An even deeper peel containing phenol can be used for more prominent scars and can diminish their appearance. In fact, phenol chemical peels have been found to be extremely effective in a clinical study, which saw an improvement of over 75% of the participants.
Chemical peels are also quite effective for treating skin pigmentation. Melasma, discoloration, and hyperpigmentation are all caused due to recurrent acne and scarring. These are most visible on the neck and facial regions, and can affect the person’s natural skin tone and texture. Chemical peels address these issues and restores the skin back to its original color and texture.
The topmost layer of skin is removed through chemical peels, taking away the dead cells on the surface with them. As the acid removes the dead skin, the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid by the cells beneath is increased. The effects are almost immediate; the skin becomes more receptive and appears to be glowing.
This then increases the effectiveness of skincare products. With dead skin removed, the products can be easily and more readily be absorbed for them to take effect. Your skincare routine using verified products is set to go with your skin being more accepting of the product being applied.
