Living in Arizona, we are no strangers to the effects of sun damage on our skin. With the harsh desert climate, our skin is constantly exposed to harmful UV rays, leading to premature aging, fine lines, and uneven skin tone. But fear not, as there is a simple solution to combat these effects – chemical peels.
What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a non-invasive skin treatment that involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin. This solution works to exfoliate and remove the outer layer of dead skin cells, revealing smoother and healthier-looking skin underneath.
Chemical peels come in different strengths and types, ranging from mild to deep. Mild chemical peels are great for those with sensitive skin, while deep chemical peels are more suitable for those with severe skin concerns, such as acne scars and deep wrinkles.
The Benefits of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels offer numerous benefits for the skin. Not only do they improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin, but they also stimulate collagen production, which helps to reduce the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Chemical peels can also help to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and acne scars, resulting in a more even skin tone and smoother complexion.
Preparing for a Chemical Peel
Before getting a chemical peel, it is important to properly prepare the skin to ensure safe and effective results. This includes avoiding sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks before the treatment, as well as discontinuing the use of any exfoliating products or retinoids.
It is also important to inform your licensed esthetician about any medications you are taking, as certain medications can increase the risk of complications during the treatment.
What to Expect During a Chemical Peel
During a chemical peel, your licensed esthetician will apply a chemical solution to your skin. You may feel a slight tingling or burning sensation, but this is completely normal and should subside after a few minutes.
After the treatment, you may experience some redness and peeling for a few days, but this is also normal and can be managed with proper skincare and sun protection.
