Considering a chemical peel
Perhaps you have heard of or read about the benefits of chemical peel as a skin renewal solution, and you are wondering if it will work for you. As we age, it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain vibrant youthful skin. It really does not matter how fastidious you are about skin care, eventually you will find it to become an increasing struggle. For some individuals, a chemical peel could dramatically improve the appearance of your skin.
Explaining chemical peel
Chemical peeling is when your Charlotte dermatologist applies an active solution to the surface of your skin, causing the superficial layer to peel off. This may sound painful, but most chemical peels are relatively painless. During the process, you may experience some temporary discomfort in the form of a tingling or stinging sensation that will last just a few minutes. The majority of patients tolerate this brief discomfort without the need for pain medication.
Once the superficial layer of skin has been removed, you will now have a new layer of healthy undamaged skin, revealing a smoother texture and a more even skin tone. Skin peels that are applied by a competent dermatologist will address skin concerns such as uneven skin pigmentation, age spots, rough skin texture, sun damage, acne, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, rosacea, and pre-cancerous growths. Skin peels are usually suitable for various areas of the face, neck, bald head, torso, arms, legs, and hands.
The benefits of chemical peel
Patients who experience successful chemical peel will obviously feel increased confidence and self-esteem because of the improved beauty of their skin. Chemical peel can also reduce imperfections such as age spots, acne scarring, and freckles. Chemical peels can reduce fine lines around your mouth and eyes, and some wrinkles. Once your layer of dull, dry, damaged skin is removed, your skin will look fresher and healthier.
It is important to remember, that a chemical peel is not an overnight process that will rid you of every imperfection you see. Depending upon the strength and depth of the peel used, within days, the outer layers of the skin will begin to peel off. The condition of your skin will continue to improve during the weeks following the peel. Your dermatologist can help you determine if you need a single treatment or periodic treatments as often as required.
