Sun damage can wreak havoc on a person’s skin, making them look much older. Sun-damaged skin can have dark marks and lines and wrinkles. Thankfully, there are now options for chemical peels that can help individuals overcome the signs of aging and make their skin look more attractive than ever before. Those who have never gone through one of these treatments need to learn all about them so they can make a sound decision for their skincare needs.
Chemical Peels Add New Life to Skin
Those who are tired of looking older than they are should consider their options for chemical peels. Chemical peels allow the top layers of the skin to be removed so new skin cells can begin to grow. In the past, chemical peels were harsh on the skin and often led to long recovery times where the skin looked so horrible a person did not feel comfortable leaving their home. Today, the treatments are much less destructive, allowing for the gentle removal of the old, damaged skin.
As the top layers of the skin are removed, new skin growth is revealed. There are three depths of chemical peels, depending on a person’s unique needs. Light, medium, and deep chemical peels can be used and each one offers benefits. When a person has severe skin damage, they may need to choose a deep peel to ensure all of their damaged skin will be removed.
While most chemical peels do not require any anesthesia, a deep chemical peel may. Aesthetics help to prevent any discomfort as a person goes through the chemical peel process. A topical anesthetic helps to soothe any stinging sensations.
It is not uncommon for patients to experience some level of irritation during and after their treatment. It is important individuals properly protect their skin from the sun after they have had a chemical peel.
