Rejuvenate Dull Skin with a Chemical Peel

Chemical peels

Skin is a reflection of a person’s overall health. Age can detract from this, just as stress and damage from the environment can.

The problem is that, even when you correct the cause of skin problems, your skin can still look dull or cloudy. It may lack that former radiance that it once had.

A chemical peel can help you rejuvenate your skin. It can make your skin look clearer, remove blemishes, and restore the radiance that your skin once had.

Carefully Removing Old, Dull Skin

Chemical peels utilize a controlled destruction of old skin cells. The amount of cells they destroy depends entirely upon the active ingredient used within the peels.

Lighter chemical peels are ideal for destroying the very top layer of skin that tends to be responsible for a dull and lackluster appearance. The epidermis layer is removed by these chemical peels to allow the shinier and more radiant layers hiding behind those dead skin cells to be revealed.

Strong chemical peels can penetrate more deeply into the skin. They may be able to interact with the layers of the skin containing pores, which can help remove acne breakouts from your face. Stronger acids may even be able to initiate the process of neocollagenesis to make your skin feel firmer and to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Using the Body’s Natural Healing Process

The one thing you should understand about chemical peels is that they hinge on using your body’s natural regenerative processes to make your skin look more beautiful. This makes chemical peels safe to use on most skin types when they are administered by experienced dermatological care providers.

Once the dull skin has been destroyed, new skin can replace it. This is why it’s common for skin to peel and flake from the face after receiving a chemical peel.

The new skin will typically appear somewhat red. Over the first few days following a chemical peel, this irritation will decrease substantially. Your skin will look better than it did before.

Combining Chemical Peels with Other Treatments

The best part about chemical peels is that they can be combined with other non-surgical dermatological treatments. You can have a light chemical appealed to your face before applying another treatment to increase the effectiveness of that treatment.

Restore Your Radiant Skin with a Chemical Peel

Given that there are many different types of chemical peels, different peels will produce different results.
