A chemical peel resurfaces your skin and gives you a fresh, rejuvenated look, and with different types of peels, you are guaranteed to achieve the exact results you’re looking for. Some are mild and only remove the very top layer of dead skin cells, while others remove more layers and require a recovery period while your skin heals. The type of peel you need depends on your goals for treatment. But how do you know when your skin may be ready for a chemical peel? Let’s take a look at four signs that a chemical peel may be right for you and the benefits it can provide.
Four Signs You May Need A Chemical Peel
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your skin, Dr. Baird in Farmington, MI can help you determine if the chemical peel is right for you and what other treatment options may help you look your absolute best. Some of the signs that may make a chemical peel right for you include the following:
- acne scars
- rough skin texture
These skin conditions can develop with age and sun exposure, but genetics play a role in how your skin ages as well. If you have any of these skin concerns, you may be a good candidate for a chemical peel.
Benefits of a Chemical Peel
There are many benefits that come with a chemical peel. It can do everything from improving the overall look of your skin to increasing how well your skincare products absorb and work.
Removes Surface Imperfections
Because a chemical peel removes surface imperfections, it can be perfect for those struggling with acne and acne scars. The surface of your skin is removed during a peel so dead skin cells vanish to reveal fresh new skin below. A moderate to deep peel is just deep enough to remove old acne scars or make them less visible. The new skin that emerges is often smoother and fresher-looking, erasing those imperfections that can often affect confidence and self-esteem.
The removal of the top layer of skin can also diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, knocking years off how you look!
Improves Skin Texture And Tone
Rough skin and dark patches of skin on your face can often be embarrassing and difficult to deal with. Skincare products can only do so much, and hiding these patches under makeup can be time-consuming. With a chemical peel, these skin issues can be removed altogether. Roughness and hyperpigmentation vanish when the surface layer of your skin peels off. The fresh skin below has a more uniform color and smooth texture, providing a more youthful appearance.
To ensure you maintain these results, it’s necessary to take good care of your skin and use sunscreen between chemical peel treatments.
