What are the Advantages of Getting Chemical Peels?

Many of the most effective treatments for minimizing the signs of aging and improving the texture, tone and overall look of the skin are entirely non-invasive. They do, however, involve a specialized technique that encourages the skin to heal itself. This is certainly the case with chemical peels.

Designed to effectively break down damaged skin cells, chemical peels trigger the body’s inherent healing abilities. This results in the proliferation of new skin cells and increased collagen production. These treatments are simple and entirely safe. Best of all, they’re capable of minimizing and even eliminating a host of common skin issues.

Chemical Peels Create Youthful, Vibrant Skin
A chemical peel can quickly and non-surgically restore a bright, youthful glow to skin that has taken on a dull and unhealthy appearance due to the ravages of time. Depending upon the depth at which they are performed, these procedures can eliminate the signs of sun damage by lightening or erasing age spots, diminishing dark spots, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and reducing the appearance of enlarged pores.

Improve the Texture of the Dermis
Treatments like these are also effective for improving the texture and tone of uneven, blotchy skin. This is especially important for those who suffer from mild to moderate acne scarring and regular acne breakouts. Even the most basic of these procedures can remove dirt, oils and other debris that clog the pores and allow acne-causing bacteria to proliferate. Deep chemical peels eliminate multiple layers of skin to create a smoother surface in areas with deep and pitted scars caused by blackheads and cystic blemishes.

Increased Collagenesis
By creating superficial damages at the surface layers of the skin, chemical peels capitalize on the body’s natural healing abilities. As old, damaged skin cells are removed and replaced with new, healthy cells, the natural production of collagen increases. This can have a noticeable plumping effect that gradually fills in fine lines, wrinkles and pitted acne scars. These treatments also increase the production of hyaluronic acid. This is a special acid that exists at the very foundation of the skin, where it supplies structural support.
After a series of chemical peels, many people experience a subtle tightening and firming of the dermis that allows for a more youthful and appealing look overall.

Enhance the Efficacy of Your Current Skin Care Products
The removal of dry, damaged and dead skin cells can also increase the effectiveness of your skin care products. Dead skin cells create a barrier that often prevents nutrients found in moisturizing creams and other skin care agents from doing their jobs effectively. Once these obstructions are removed, these products can deliver vitamins, minerals and other beneficial elements to the deepest layers of the skin.
Moreover, recent advances in chemical peel procedures have radically altered the way in which these treatments are performed and their overall goals. Rather than focusing solely on the removal of damaged skin layers, chemical peels are largely aimed at infusing the skin with nutrients that support optimal health and rapid renewal.
