Curious about chemical exfoliation? If you have sensitive, problematic, oily, or aging skin, chemical peels treatments will correct it by removing dead skin cells including acne and sun damage. Kenzie Marvin, LE, CLT talks chemical peels with Susan Casper of Sonoran Living and how they are the perfect treatment for anyone that is looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne, skin discoloration and more!
What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels natural collagen production in the skin, activating the skin to develop new healthy skin cells. They also contain ingredients to lighten and eliminate pigmentation, as well as plump up fine lines and wrinkles.
We have a treatment for all skin types and most skin conditions with a variety of peel depths ranging from superficial and light to medium or deep. The changes to your skin happen on a cellular level and continue to improve with each treatment.
What to Expect During a Chemical Peel?
During treatment, you may feel a slight warming or stinging sensation on your skin, which will only last for a few minutes. Your procedure will be completed within 30 minutes and you will be given post-procedure instruction one of our licensed aestheticians.
Once your procedure has been completed, your skin may be pink and a little sensitive to the touch for a while. After a few days, you may notice some shedding or peeling of your skin, which is a normal part of an advanced exfoliation procedure.
Despite the flaking and peeling, keep your face moisturized and protected from the sun. Some people experience significant peeling, while others have no visible peeling. If you experience no peeling, your skin is still exfoliating on a cellular level, which will reveal healthier skin.
What are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are used to restore a youthful, vibrant appearance to wrinkled, blotchy, sun-damaged skin. The post-peel result is glowing, healthy skin.
Peels can address and improve visible skin imperfections such as:
- Skin tone and texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Pore size
- Hyperpigmentation and sun damage
- Superficial scars, such as acne scars
- Acne and blemish breakouts
Who is a Candidate for Chemical Peels?
Anyone who is wanting to improve the appearance of their skin due to aging, sun damage, acne, or acne scarring, are good candidates for chemical peels. If you have a sunburn or any cuts on your skin, it is best to allow your skin to heal before chemical treatments.
