Try ‘A PEEL’ to make your skin radiate with ‘APPEAL’; 3 reasons why a chemical peel may benefit you!

How often have you wished for a skin treatment that gives you a ‘fresh’ look, taking years off your face? Don’t despair! Chemical peels offer a solution.

A chemical peel is a skincare treatment involving the application of a certain chemical solution on to the skin causing it to slough off and eventually peel off. Chemical peel is known to be an effective tool for skin rejuvenation. [1]

Peels can be superficial (or surface-level), medium peels or deep peels depending on how deep the chemical penetrates.

The surface level peel works with the use of a mild acid that gently exfoliates the outer layer. It is used to treat minimal damage. A medium peel penetrates into the middle layers of the skin and eliminates damaged cells, while a deep peel works more deeply on the middle layers of the skin. [2]

 

Here are 3 reasons why you should opt for one!

 

  • 1. Results are noticeable

    In comparison to many other kinds of beauty and skincare treatments, the results of a chemical peel are noticeable and promising. Most problems like pigmentation and skin damage are visibly reduced right from the first sitting. Your skin will be noticeably smoother as the peel penetrates into the skin texture to even it out. It also leaves the skin glowing and evenly toned. Also, because the skin continues to generate collagen you will notice that the results keep getting better when well maintained. [3]

  • 2. Skin restoration

    A chemical peel can restore your youthful looking skin by eliminating wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation, dark circles, enlarged pores, post-acne scars, rough patches, scaly skin, freckles and many such problems. The peels contain the right quantity of abrasive chemicals that peel out the dead and damaged cells revealing the fresher skin beneath. Also, the elimination of the unwanted top layer encourages collagen production and cell renewal. So, it literally works in the form of a ‘fresh start’ to your skin. Unlike anti-ageing treatments like Botox, the peels are non-toxic and work on bringing out the natural underlying undamaged skin to the surface, which is a more effective skincare technique. [4]

  • 3. Beneficial for most skin types

    Chemical peels are beneficial for most skin types. Right from treatment peels to preventative peels, there is a variety of peels designed to address various skin problems. Chemical peels are absolutely safe as most of the active ingredients in them, such as glycolic acid and lactic acid, are chemicals obtained from natural substances and not manufactured toxins, contrary to what people generally assume! The peels are designed to address specific damage done to the skin and hence the required intensity of peels varies from person to person.
