One of the least invasive ways to rejuvenate your facial skin and improve its texture is by getting regular chemical peels. A chemical peel uses an acid formula to remove dead, damaged skin cells. When the surface of the skin is made up of cells that continue to reproduce damaged tissue, the skin texture becomes dull, it holds less moisture and wrinkles become much more apparent. A chemical peel stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, and it also causes an acceleration in the production of tissue that will eventually come to the surface as a healthy, new layer of epidermis. We highly recommend this type of skin rejuvenation treatment to those individuals suffering from the common signs of skin aging, namely dull skin that is full of lines and wrinkles.
It is important to note that there are different types and strengths of chemical peels. A lighter peel is performed to correct texture problems in the epidermis. A gentle acid is used to gently remove the upper layer of skin. There is typically no downtime for the client. New skin growth will become noticeable in the weeks following the treatment.
Other peels with stronger ingredients can treat acne scars and deeper wrinkles. The acid solution used penetrates through the epidermis and affects the upper portion of the dermis as well. This type of peel treatment usually requires a short-term recovery period.
A deeper peel uses an even stronger acid that treats deeper facial wrinkles and more pronounced scars. The acid penetrates through all or most all of the skin layers. The downtime is more extensive; however, the results tend to be the most dramatic.
The body responds to the treatment as though a slight injury has occurred. Nutrients are rushed to the affected areas, and skin creation below the epidermis increases. Remember, the epidermis is actually formed deep below, meaning that the skin growth keeps pushing upward. Positive results are, therefore, not immediate, but most clients notice improvement in skin texture in just weeks.
Due to the advancements in acid formulas, chemical peels can now be performed on almost anyone regardless of their skin tone. This type of skin rejuvenation is now safer than ever before.
