The Benefits of a Chemical Peel

Medical spa procedure room

You reach into your closet and grab your favorite girls’ night pink pumps, you look down at them and realize they’re covered in dark marks and the heel is practically worn down to a stub. It is time for a new fresh pair of girl’s night pumps, out with the old and in with the new. Most of the things in our lives we can exchange out for something new and perfect, even things you wouldn’t expect to be able to change.

Chemical peels have been around as early as the 19th century but don’t worry they have come a long way since then. Chemical peels are not as terrifying as they sound, people think foreign chemicals on my skin…absolutely not. But in all reality, it’s not as scary as it seems. Chemical peels have been refined and improved over the years to allow for a youthful appearance without the “ouch” factor or any downtime afterwards. Chemical peels are so easy going you can sneak one in on your lunch break, it’s that quick and easy.

Are you asking yourself if I am a good candidate for a chemical peel? Anyone and everyone can get a chemical peel. Chemical peels are designed to help you achieve a brighter, clearer and more youthful look by removing the topmost facial layer. Your skin is made up of various layers, when one layer is removed your cells send signals to the living cells to produce a fresh new layer. Still not convinced you’re a good candidate for a chemical peel? Here are some more reasons why you should book a peel tomorrow and thank me later!

Goodbye dark spots

Do you ever look in the mirror and shake your head at all the dark spots on your face? Do you ever feel uncomfortable leaving the house without foundation on at the bare minimum, because you feel like people constantly stare at your dark spots from the sun or acne scars that you still have from those crazy high school days?

Chemical peels have been proven to repair and reverse the appearance of sun damage. The sun is very dangerous to the skin, only sun protection will allow you to maintain that youthful appearance and avoid sun damage. Once you receive your chemical peel you should do some research to find the right products for you to use that contain SPF to help you keep that fresh face safe from the sun.

The skin-care product you never knew

We all hold our skin regime very dear and close to our hearts. But what happens when that moisturizer just doesn’t work the way it used to or your makeup just doesn’t look as good as it did a year ago?

Since chemical peels are essentially lifting away the dead cells and replacing them with new cells that have never seen a dab of moisturizer or a blend of foundation, that moisturizer and that foundation will look ten times better on that new canvas that is now your face. Not only do your skin care products overall work better but the peel allows for a more radiant look you never knew you had with the same products you had been using all along.

Getting a chemical peel will allow you to turn back the clock past those dark spots and the fine lines that left your face looking damaged and dull. Allow your-self to feel confident again with a fresh face by booking your chemical peel today!
