Replacing damaged, dull, wrinkled facial skin with newer, smoother, more youthful dermal layers can be achieved merely by stimulating the body to do so. When skin is exfoliated, the body responds by creating new tissue. This skin rejuvenation process can be kickstarted through chemical peel treatments. Chemical peels remove the epidermis and allow the body to produce newer skin tissue. Collagen production increases as well.
We recommend that you talk to us first before deciding to have a chemical peel performed. There are different types of peel procedures, each one specifically designed to work on certain skin problems. Properly performed, a peel treatment can minimize the appearance of wrinkles, certain types of scars and hyperpigmentation.
When the solution is applied to the skin surface, it affects the epidermal layer. Unlike a severe sunburn, however, it doesn’t inhibit the body’s ability to quickly replace the damaged skin with newer, healthier tissue. Nutrients are rushed to the lower dermal layers so that accelerated creation of replacement tissue can commence.
The skin is formed at the base of the dermal layers. Slowly but surely, this tissue gets pushed upwards as it develops. This is how our skin constantly replaces itself. It’s not all that different from a snake producing a new skin layer and shedding the old one. A chemical peel accelerates this process in a safe and effective way. The body goes into overdrive producing healthier skin tissue.
We need to consult with you before deciding which chemical peel treatment will work best. Regardless of the type of peel that is used for skin rejuvenation, the real magic of a peel treatment is the slow but steady increase in collagen production. The body needs to do this because the tissue replacement has been accelerated. The final results of a peel treatment take some time to be appreciated, but the wait is certainly worth it for most clients.
Properly performed, a chemical peel starts a natural skin rejuvenation process resulting in healthy, glowing facial skin.
