Many people are walking around with dull, dry and unhealthy-looking skin even after trying out all kinds of over-the-counter topical creams. If you have heard of chemical peels, then you probably know that their popularity lies in their effectiveness in dealing with many skin problems. At Nuance Cosmetic Surgery, we believe that many skin concerns can be solved with the right chemical peel.
What Exactly is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a chemical solution that is administered on a patient’s skin to remove the damaged skin. In the days following the treatment, the affected skin goes away to reveal fresh, healthy skin.
Understanding How Peels Work
The superficial peels are generally used for exfoliating and getting rid of dead skin. However, there is more to chemical peels than just exfoliating. The other two types of peels that penetrate deeper into the skin, medium peels and deep peels, have a lot of anti-aging benefits as they tend to stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is the naturally-occurring protein in the skin that helps it to look youthful. Some of the skin conditions that can be treated with deep-reaching chemical peels are freckles, acne scarring, rosacea, wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.
The candidacy for chemical peels is on a case by case basis considering each patient and their reaction to treatment is unique. However, most skin types generally receive peels without issues. You will need to consult our specialists to determine the most suitable option for you.
