If you are looking for a way to improve the appearance of your skin, chemical peels may be a good option for you. Chemical peels can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage. They can also help improve the overall texture and tone of your skin. Some of the other benefits of chemical peels include:
1. They Help Remove Surface Buildup
The main purpose of chemical peels is to remove the top layer of dead skin cells that accumulate on your face. Although they can vary in depth and strength, most chemical peels work by loosening and softening the cells before adding a solution to peel away the softened skin.
The type of chemical used in the peel determines how deep your skin will be peeled and the results you can expect to see after a single treatment. With continued use, chemical peels remove more of these dead cells and improve the cell turnover rate on your skin. This is why using a chemical peel can help improve many common facial problems such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines.
2. They Help Treat Acne
Acne can be caused by many factors, including genetics, poor hygiene habits, environmental factors, oil buildup on the skin’s surface, clogged pores, and even stress. While chemical peels cannot cure or prevent acne itself, they can help reduce the appearance of existing acne scarring, reduce the signs of aging caused by previous outbreaks, and help prevent future outbreaks from occurring.
3. They Help Improve Hyperpigmentation
You may have thought that there was no way to treat hyperpigmentation associated with sun damage or dark spots on your skin. Although chemical peels cannot reverse sun damage, they can help fade dark spots caused by melanin overproduction.
In many cases, chemical peels will use a high concentration of glycolic acid or salicylic acid to more effectively penetrate your skin and target the surface of hyperpigmented areas.
4. They Increase Cellular Proliferation
Chemical peels work by removing the top layer of skin cells from your face. In turn, this triggers your skin to produce new skin cells that are more resistant to environmental factors and visible signs of aging.
In the short term, chemical peels can help improve your skin’s appearance by removing dead surface cells and encouraging new cell production. In the long term, however, chemical peels can help improve your skin’s overall resilience and tone and inspire healthier cell growth.
5. They Increase The Production of Collagen
Collagen is the main protein found in your skin. It gives your skin its firmness and elasticity while also helping your skin protect itself against environmental stressors.
As you get older, the collagen production in your body decreases while the degradation of existing collagen continues to increase. As a result, many people over the age of 30 notice that their skin becomes thinner and less firm as time passes.
Chemical peels can help increase collagen production in our body because they cause small injuries to the skin that trigger the body to repair itself with new, healthier tissue. As a result, you will start to see an improvement in your skin’s resilience, and tone as more collagen is produced.
