What Skin Improvements Can You Expect With Chemical Peels?
- Posted on: Nov 30 2023
If you’re looking to address signs of aging, alleviate the appearance of scars, or rejuvenate your skin, chemical peels can help. They provide an excellent, time-efficient, non-invasive way to address common skin issues. Learn what you can expect with chemical peels and how different types of peels can address various skin conditions, helping you achieve the skin you want.
What Are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels can treat a variety of skin conditions, such as:
- Fine lines
- Signs of sun damage
- Rough skin or irregular texture
Chemical peels have been scientifically noted to increase the production of vital proteins like collagen and elastin, stimulate new skin cells, and help evenly distribute melanin to provide even pigmentation. With these aesthetic improvements, skin can appear more youthful after a chemical peel.
Are All Chemical Peels the Same?
Chemical peels come in different levels of treatment. Each type corresponds to the level of chemical penetration into the skin. The layer of skin affected by the peel affects the robustness of the results. Deeper penetration can encourage more significant results but is accompanied by a longer recovery time.
What Are Recovery Times Like?
Because you can get differing levels of chemical peels, recovery times depend on the level you choose. Superficial chemical peels, affecting the first layer of skin, may take up to seven days to fully heal.
Medium chemical peels can take approximately two weeks to recover as more skin layers have been affected.
Deep chemical peels penetrate the furthest into the skin and can require healing that takes weeks. Because of the risk and tax on the body, deep chemical peels are typically performed only once.
