What Do Chemical Peels Do for Your Skin?

As you age, the sun, environmental conditions, gravity, and other factors take a toll on your skin. If the representation in the mirror appears aged and worn and does not reflect the image you want to portray, plastic surgery techniques can help you achieve a more youthful and attractive appearance. A chemical peel can combat the signs of aging and give you smoother, healthier, and more evenly toned facial skin.

What Is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel applies a combination of chemicals directly to the skin to enhance its appearance. Phenol, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), and trichloroacetic acid (TCA) can all be adapted into different formulas to precisely meet your needs. Each treatment with chemical peels is entirely customized for the patient so that the best results can be achieved. The application of a chemical peel rejuvenates the skin and eliminates wrinkles, blemishes, and uneven skin pigmentation.

How Does a Chemical Peel Rejuvenate the Skin?

A chemical peel combats signs of aging by removing the damaged outer layers of skin. The chemical formula causes the surface skin to blister and peel off, revealing the healthier layers of skin beneath. This process is almost like a sunburn, which damages the surface skin and causes it to peel away over the following week. Through this process, a chemical peel can soften the texture of the facial skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, eliminate age spots and melasma, and even improve the appearance of blemishes and scars. Essentially, the treatment creates an overall healthier skin appearance, which helps you look altogether more youthful. While most often used on the face, chemical peels can also be used to rejuvenate the neck and hands to more fully refresh your appearance.
