Chemical peels have significantly grown in popularity over the past couple of years, and the trend is likely to continue even more by the end of this decade. People are getting more and more face-peel products, but nothing compares to a chemical peel given by a professional.

Chemical peels can reduce various spots and imperfections on the skin and can effectively reduce the signs of aging and sun damage. Read this blog and learn what a chemical peel can do for the skin!

What Are Chemical Peels?

As their name suggests, chemical peels are treatments that use a chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layer of the skin. The action reveals the healthy skin layer underneath, allowing it to come to the surface. The procedure is highly versatile, as it can be used on various body areas such as the face, back, neck, chest, and hands.

Chemical peels come in various strength levels, depending on the active agent used for the formula. This can be anything from salicylic acid, lactic acid, glycolic acid, or trichloroacetic acid (TCA). These substances exfoliate the skin, causing it to peel and reduce skin concerns like pigmentation marks and deep wrinkles.

At Dermacare Medical Aesthetics, our clients can enjoy various chemical peels, whether they want a mild lactic acid option or a deeper TCA one. Each chemical peel is medical grade, tailored to meet one’s lifestyle and specific needs.

How Can Chemical Peels Help?

Chemical peels have various actions that significantly contribute to skin health. This can include the following:

1.  They Exfoliate the Skin

Through the acids used in the formula, chemical peels break down the bonds between damaged skin cells on the surface. While exfoliation occurs naturally every four weeks, chemical peels can speed up the process to several days. This leads to a more even skin tone and fewer chances for the pores to become clogged.

During the skin exfoliation process, excess melanin patches are also removed from the skin. This includes sun spots, age spots, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and even freckles, resulting in smooth-toned skin with fewer imperfections.

2.  They Stimulate Collagen Production

Chemical peels also trigger collagen production and promote the body’s natural healing response. By eliminating the first layer, the skin will have to create new cells to send to the surface, replacing those that have been chemically removed.

The controlled injury will then stimulate the fibroblasts, producing new collagen and elastin within the dermis. This action effectively reduces the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin’s elasticity. With time, it will look much firmer and more youthful overall.

3. They Improve Skincare Product Absorption

Proper skincare is an essential part of having healthy skin. However, when there are multiple layers of dead skin just sitting on the face, this can create a barrier that prevents product absorption. Even if the product is absorbed, it risks trapping dead skin in the pores, potentially causing an acne breakout.

Chemical peels effectively remove dead skin cells from the surface, clearing the pores and offering a clean “canvas.” This potentially prevents acne breakouts, making the skin more receptive to product absorption. The effects should become visible much faster as the serums and nurturing products can enter deeper within the skin.
