Benefits of Chemical Peels
- Posted on: Feb 25 2014
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, chemical peels are the second-most-common non-surgical cosmetic procedure performed by medical professionals and clinical ethesticians today. This topical treatment is a corner stone in the beauty industry for many reasons, but mostly because:
1. It is safe and effective: Can you believe that chemical peels were invented 50 years ago? Times, and peels, have changed dramatically since then. Back then these single or multi-acid peels could leave the skin irritated and inflamed. Today’s peels, however, are much more skin compatible. They use bio-compatible acids such as lactic or citric acids and buffering agents that help minimize irritation on the skin. Antioxidants are also used to allow the skin to restore itself.
2. It’s quick! Our patients can come in during their lunch hour and go back to work right after, with the only noticeable differences being brighter and firmer-looking skin.
3. Treats Conditions: Acne, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, psoriasis, and skin degradation such as fine lines and wrinkles can all be easily treated with chemical peels. Not all peels are good for all conditions, so let your clinical ethestician or medical professional know the conditions you’re trying to treat before your treatment.
We offer a variety of different chemical peels that effectively reduce skin imperfections and stimulate cell growth. PCA Skin is a product we recommend, and in combination with chemical peels can be very effective on skin conditions.
