What Are the Benefits of a Chemical Peels?
Chemical Peels are so popular because they provide so many benefits. Different peels offer different kinds of results, which means that virtually anyone can undergo this treatment, Leah here at LK Beauty can customize it to each patient’s needs and goals.
Light peels help target specific skin conditions, as do medium and deep peels. The Chemical face peels 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.
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 Treats Age Spots
If you have age spots on your face, you’re well aware of just how stubborn they can be. Not only is it hard to hide them with makeup, but it’s even harder to try to remove them at home with topical products. Sometimes, all you need is a good, effective peel to do what your at-home products cannot. While you may need several treatments, you will see an improvement in the appearance of your age spots after a few chemical peels.
It Helps Reverse Sun Damage
Many people don’t realize just how much damage they caused their skin in their younger years by sunbathing or visiting tanning salons, and once they do, it can feel like it’s too late. We want to let you know that it’s not too late, and there is a solution. Our peels can help treat sun damage and reverse that damage by increasing collagen and elastin production in the body.
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.
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, Leah will let you know based on the customized peel chosen for your skin whether or not you can expect to peel.
