Acne scars got you feeling self-conscious? Why not try a chemical peel; it’ll help improve your skin appearance!
A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. Aside from acne, a chemical peel can help improve sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, irregular skin pigmentation, scars, freckles, and rough skin and scaly patches.
Chemical peels used by estheticians apply a low pH solution so that they can penetrate much deeper into the skin. The acids in the peel work to dissolve the top layers of the skin creating a controlled wound and thus allowing the skin to regenerate itself.
The fast treatment will normally cause you to turn red, and your skin will peel following a peel. The extent of peeling varies according to the person and the depth of the peel. Not everyone peels following a chemical peel actually. Some people have some mild itchy following their peels.
Generally it is best to get a peel every four to six weeks. Generally it is a great idea to buy a series of four or five peels up front so that you can achieve the treatment results that you want.
It’s totally worth it in the end!
