Why you should get a peeling treatment once a month

by | Jan 14, 2020 | Injectables

Looking for a smooth, fresh new look without surgery or even injectables? Well, look no further, because a chemical peel is just the thing your face needs! In fact, we recommend a (mild) chemical peel, also known as a face peel, once every 4 to 6 weeks for consistent results, whether or not you’ve had other work done. Why? There are so many benefits to this treatment, and it’s customizable to your needs, with everything from a light peel perfect for anyone to a deep peel for someone looking for more intense results. 

What is a chemical peel?

Just as the name suggests, a chemical peel involves a naturally derived acid solution being “painted” onto your face. This solution causes the outer layer of your skin to peel or flake off, revealing younger, more refreshed skin underneath. How much peeling depends on the intensity of the peel you choose. There are light, medium, and deep peels. Each uses different chemical solutions to peel the skin. Which you choose will depend on what improvements you’re looking to make, how much downtime you can afford (as you may have guessed, the more intense the treatment, the longer the recovery period! It’s important to note that with stronger treatment redness will be visible for up to several weeks after treatment) and of course the advice of a trusted esthetician. 

Benefits of a chemical peel

Once the initial redness wears off, a face peel provides immediate results. Your face will look instantly rejuvenated, since your skin has, quite literally, been renewed. Peels help with the elasticity of the skin and will help with surface wrinkles. Your skin’s tone will become more even, and your skin will feel baby-soft. The benefits don’t stop after your peel, too. A medium or deep chemical peel stimulates collagen growth and tissue regeneration. With medium and deep peels, pores can become tightened. There are different types of peels and each has its strengths. Glycolic peels and lactic peels are two examples. Your esthetician can help guide you to the peel that will best help you!
