A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that can improve the texture of your skin by applying a special solution that gets rid of damaged cells. Chemical peels are highly effective at treating acne, fine wrinkles, dry skin and discoloration, producing smoother skin and fewer wrinkles.
How Does a Chemical Peel Work?
Your body regularly replaces damaged cells with newer, healthier ones. However, as we get older, the turnover rate declines and old cells begin to accumulate. This causes your skin to feel rough and appear aged. Chemical peels work by encouraging dead cells to slough off, leaving room for new cell growth.
Are There Any Side Effects?
One of the best things about chemical peels is that they rarely pose any adverse side effects. You may experience slight irritation and/or redness for a few days after your treatments, however. There is also no recovery time associated with chemical peels, which means you can resume your normal activities immediately!
How Many Treatments are Necessary?
The number of chemical peel treatments you’ll need will depend on the severity of your condition. Some people may only need one or two sessions, while others will require three or more. A doctor or other trained professional can help you determine the proper treatment path for you. Call us today to get started!
