Chemical peels are growing in popularity, either as a treatment on their own, or used in tandem with other facial treatments, due to its incredible ability to exfoliate the top layer of the skin to penetrate deep down and reveal beautiful skin underneath. This skin rejuvenation treatment promotes the growth of new skin cells, stimulating collagen and elastic production, allowing for younger, more radiant skin to be brought out after each treatment. There are a few very common types of chemical peels that vary in depth, with AHA and BHA peels being the lightest, TCA peels being moderate in depth, and Phenol peels being the deepest and offering the most dramatic results of the well-known options.
Chemical peels are a very safe facial cosmetic treatment that acts as an exfoliator by removing the top layer of the skin. There are different types of chemical peels that you can get depending on the specific needs or condition of your skin. Since they are done with harsher chemicals, it is recommended that the peel be done by a professional to ensure your safety and to make sure that your skin is properly protected. When done correctly, they can be very good for your skin by removing the layer of dead skin cells, and any debris or clogged pores that exist on the top layer of the skin, allowing the skin to feel the full effects of any serums or topical creams.
There are different types of chemical peels, some of which can go deeper into the layers of the skin to offer more dramatic results. Chemical peels are used to improve the overall appearance of the skin and are often used to specifically reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve skin tone by diminishing hyperpigmentation, and reduce the appearance of scarring. They function by removing the dead skin cells and stimulating the growth of new skin cells, allowing the skin to appear replenished and radiant due to the new collagen production. Since chemical peels act as an exfoliator, the pores are cleared out of any excess oils and blackheads, allowing the pores to appear smaller and the skin to appear more clear and smooth. With the dead skin cells out of the way, chemical peels allow for any products applied to the skin to be much more effective.
It is common for the peeling of the skin to continue until around 3 to 4 days after the treatment has been done, but it can take anywhere from 7 to 14 days before the skin is completely healed. Once the skin is completely healed, fresh, new skin will be revealed with an improved tone and texture even after just one treatment. During this healing process immediately following the treatment, your skin may be fairly red, swollen, and feel irritated. The professional who provided the chemical peel treatment should be able to recommend a moisturizing product that is safe to use on your skin to ease any discomfort. To ensure that your skin heals properly, do not pick at the skin that is peeling off, let it fall off naturally, and make sure to avoid any direct sunlight until your skin has been able to heal completely.
You will likely be able to see results from your chemical peel even after the first treatment once your skin has completely healed, but they will probably be minor changes. Many people will need a few treatments, ranging from 4 to 6 light treatments every one to two months before they are able to see their desired results. The total number of peels that you will need depends on how deep of a peel you are receiving, and what your final desired results may look like. Your final results are also dependent on your after-care and skin care processes between treatments, so make sure to follow all provided instructions and that you are using good quality products to get the most out of your chemical peel treatments.
