What Are The Benefits Of Chemical Peels?

The best has yet to come! Yes, this procedure is nearly painless, has little-to-no downtime, and is completed in only 30 minutes, but believe it or not, there is more!

  1. Improve the Tone of Your Skin

No matter what the cause may be, almost everyone has their own imperfections when it comes to the clarity of their face. A common skin care problem among teens and adults involves small spots of discoloration. From freckles and sun-spots to hyper-pigmentation, a chemical peel can help reduce the unwanted discoloration in the face by peeling off the top layers of your skin and exposing your healthy and radiant skin underneath. Ultimately, this procedure evens out the color of your skin and accentuates the natural glowing skin that you never knew was there.

  1. Reduce the Signs of Aging

No matter how bad everyone dreads the signs of aging, they will eventually settle in. While you may not be able to stop the aging clock from ticking, there are ways to slow it down. Chemical peels are a perfect way to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots! The many acids and healthy vitamins found in the ingredients work to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. As for age spots, once the damaged skin peels off and reveals the new healthy skin underneath, the dark spots are erased!  Whether you are experiencing these effects from aging or from too much sun exposure, a chemical peel can eliminate these symptoms by removing the age reflecting layer of skin, all the while promoting the growth of a new healthier looking you!

  1. Clear Acne and Acne Scarring

Everyone has had their fair share of acne, whether it was during those teenage years or into adulthood. If you are like most people, you may have found a suitable treatment for your acne, but as the pimples diminished, you find yourself with dark red scarring you can’t seem to get rid of. This procedure works wonders when it comes to clearing your face and delivering evenly toned skin. The peel is perfect for adolescents and adults looking for a solution with quick and noticeable results. Although this procedure is known to produce evident results on its own, combining a chemical peel treatment with your normal skin care routine is a method many choose to perform in order to manage their current acne and prevent it from reoccurring in the future! We also offer laser skin resurfacing as a way to take care of your unwanted acne and rejuvenate your overall appearance.

  1. Stimulate the Production of Collagen

During a chemical peel, the skin soaks up all of the healthy vitamins causing the skins pores to shrink and skin to tighten. While other cosmetic procedures may have a higher risk for dangerous side-effects, chemical peels are non-invasive and nearly pain-free! This is another treatment option we offer to help tighten and enhance the elasticity of your skin.
