While there is an extensive selection of surgical solutions that have the ability to restore your youthful beauty, there is a non-invasive treatment that has been taking the world by storm; and they are called chemical peels. A chemical peel is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can rejuvenate your skin sans the excessive pain and extensive down time. 

Chemical peels have gained wide popularity due to their convenience and effectiveness, but if you’re still on the fence about whether you should get this exceptional beauty treatment or not, these top reasons will settle the score once and for all. 

1. Makes Way For New Skin 

The best feature of chemical peels is that aside from cleaning your face, it peels the outer layer of the dermis to stimulate the growth of new skin. This cosmetic procedure is one of the simplest yet most effective means of clearing up your skin to reveal healthier, smoother, and more youthful skin. 

The process works by means of an acidic component that exfoliates the outer layer of the skin. Basically, chemical peels have been designed to inflict controlled damage in order to trigger your body’s natural healing abilities. Through this technique, your skin will heal to reveal a more radiant and youthful appearance.

2. Solves Several Skin Concerns 

Chemical peels are ideal for treating a variety of skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes, uneven skin tones, and enlarged pores. It’s your all-in-one beauty solution. 

3. Chemical Peels Come in Different Levels of Intensity 

Depending on your specific needs, you can choose the depth of your chemical peel.  They are classified as superficial peels, medium peels, and deep peels. 

Superficial Peels 

Superficial chemical peels are often referred to as lunchtime peels, as they are quick to perform and do not reach further than the epidermis of your skin. Typically, superficial peels are formulated with Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Beta Hydroxy Acids, which are the mildest of chemicals. 

Medium Peels 

Medium peels harness the chemicals called salicylic acid, lactic acid, and resorcinol. The latter aids in directing the acid solutions deeper into the skin, which is perfect for evening out the skin tone, reducing dark spots, eliminating patches, eradicating age spots, and smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines. Additionally, medium peels can also be used to treat sun damage, pigment irregularities, acne scars, melasma and hyperpigmentation.

Deep Peels 

While most superficial and medium chemical peels can be performed at home, deep peels should only be administered by an expert. These peels are specially formulated to treat the lower areas of the dermis to treat acne scarring, deep wrinkles, evere photo ageing, dyschromia, freckles, and seborrheic kerstoses, among others. 

Since these are categorized as the strongest peels, it is expected to experience slight discomfort, so patients can opt for local anesthetics to reduce the pain.
