Are You A Good Candidate For a Chemical Peel?

Fair skinned people tend to fare better with chemical peels than darker skinned individuals. Often, people with darker skin tones experience uneven results in skin tone more often than lighter skinned persons. Chemical peels are used effectively on the face, hands and neck.
Peels are used to remove the damaged outer layers of skin and can:
  • 1. Reduce fine lines under eyes and around the lips
  • 2. Erase or reduce wrinkles caused from aging or sun damage
  • 3. Minimize the appearance of mild scars
  • 4. Treat some forms of acne
  • 5. Erase or reduce dark patches, age spots, and freckles
  • 6. Give the skin a “glow” and refreshing look
Note:   It is highly recommended that individuals with rosacea or eczema not use peels as they may experience increased irritation and redness, thereby aggravating the condition. Seek a medical professional’s opinion prior to any treatments.

What is a Chemical Peel?

What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are becoming popular as they are the least invasive procedure used to improve many skin imperfections. The peel mask is applied to the skin, which will then “blister” and peel, revealing the new layer of skin that improves is smoother, glows and is less wrinkled.
The peel masks work exceptionally well on discolorations, fine wrinkles and freckles to some degree. Since the skin will become more sensitive to UV rays and sunlight after a peel session, it is highly recommended that a sunscreen and protective clothing be worn. 
Facial peels can yield some amazing results for some of the most frustrating complexions issues, including acne and uneven skin tone. People with acne are cautioned not to have too many peels too often, as this can actually cause a flare up due to the skin’s attempt to compensate for the removal of too many layers and overproduce oil in the subcutaneous layers.
Contrary to popular belief, facial peals will not burn the skin and turn it bright orange. The initial redness will fades quickly and leave a nice, “glow” in its path. A series of peels. 3-6, are conducted 2-4 weeks apart for best results. Different skins require different schedules.
