What Is a Chemical Peel and How Does It Help?

Chemical Peel (4)Whether your skin has been damaged by the sun or you have large, visible pores that you dislike, you will be happy to know that there is a way to address these areas of concern and create brighter and rejuvenated skin. A chemical peel can help to remove damaged layers of skin to reveal the more youthful, healthier-looking skin underneath. Here is what you should know about this non-invasive cosmetic procedure.

What Concerns Can a Chemical Peel Help?

Chemical peels are an excellent way to improve the appearance of your neck, hands, and face. This type of solution contains various enzymes or acids that help to remove dead skin, bringing healthy and new skin to the surface.

A chemical peel can help to speed up the skin’s natural renewal process while treating various conditions. These include:

  • Laxity of skin
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Melasma
  • Acne scarring and acne
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation

In addition, a chemical peel can also improve your skin’s ability to absorb skincare products, ensuring your skin stays well-hydrated and appears more youthful for longer.

The Recovery Process

The amount of time that it takes for your skin to heal will depend on the depth of the peel. Within one to seven days, a superficial chemical peel should be fully healed. If you have a medium chemical peel performed, it can take a few weeks.

During the recovery process, you will want to protect your skin from the sun until it is fully healed. As your skin may be more sensitive as it heals, it can be more vulnerable to sun damage.
