What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel, also known as a derma peel, is a type of exfoliation procedure that utilizes an acid solution for the removal of excessive dead skin cells and damaged dermal imperfections. This process rejuvenates the fresh skin underneath the surface layer of the dermis and stimulates the restoration of your body’s natural skin-improving components and proteins, providing your skin with a polished, smooth, and radiant complexion.
What to Expect Following a Peel
Following a peel, the dead surface layer of your epidermis will begin to go away, exposing vivacious, new skin cells. During the healing process, it is important to avoid excessive sun exposure, partake in gentle facial cleanses routinely, and allow your face to properly heal with minimal interference.
Not only do peels improve the quality of skin by removing dead skin cells, but they also have a multitude of additional skincare benefits including:
- Improves the skin’s clarity, texture, and tone by removing discolored surface and deep-rooted skin cells.
- Stimulates new and healthy collagen protein and skin cell growth, resulting in an undeniably radiant complexion.
- Increases the production of natural hyaluronic acid in the dermis, which allows the skin to remain hydrated.
- Reduces the appearance of sun-damaged skin defects and age spots.
- Helps aid in the elimination of visible scarification, acne scars, and superficial blemishes.
