Most often referred to as a chemical peel, but also known as chemexfoliation, this procedure removes the outer layer of damaged skin, leaving you younger-looking with even-textured skin. The peel uses a chemical solution, and it is a minimally-invasive procedure. Read on to see why you could use such a treatment.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Starting in your thirties, you will start to notice annoying fine lines, which will gradually turn into wrinkles. A chemical peel removes the epidermis and the fine lines and wrinkles that are visible on your face. However, don't rely on this procedure to remove your deep wrinkles.
Acne and Scars
If acne or a facial scar is damaging your self-esteem, a chemical peel can help improve the appearance of your skin. A deep chemical peel can smooth out the surface of your skin and make the acne scars or any discoloration from acne less apparent.
Sun Damage and Uneven Pigmentation
Sun exposure is an enemy of your skin and it doesn't only cause premature aging, but also nasty red spots on your skin. If you failed to include a hat while packing for your past trips to the beach, a chemical peel may reverse sun damage and the signs of premature aging. The procedure will remove fine lines and wrinkles, as well as sun spots or even freckles. A chemical peel can be a solution for uneven pigmentation as well. The top layer of the skin is removed, and you will get even-colored skin.
