A fresh, new makeover
This time of year, some individuals consider a chemical peel in preparation for the holiday season. After a full summer of tanning, or being out in the sun, you may have noticed a change in your skin texture that may be the result of sun damage. Perhaps you have discovered a few freckles, fine lines, or wrinkles that were not apparent before. With the holiday season just around the corner, you can expect to be taking pictures, hosting family gatherings, or attending seasonal functions. As the weather begins to push us back indoors, this could be the perfect time for a pre-holiday makeover.
Why a chemical peel?
Chemical peel is an effective way to rejuvenate your skin. The process of removes the top layer of skin to regenerate new skin that is smoother, clearer, and less wrinkled. It is also effective for acne in some cases. Schedule your consultation in plenty of time before the holidays because you are required to be cautious about exposing your skin to the sun. For mild rejuvenation, there is minimal healing; and you can do all your baking, shopping, and normal preparation for the holidays.
Chemical peels are not to be confused with exfoliation. Professional skin peels produce more dramatic results than over the counter exfoliation creams. Most home exfoliating products only work on the skin’s surface layer. A chemical peel removes multiple layers of dead skin cells, revealing the healthy new cells. This provides you with a smoother, more youthful looking complexion.
The treatment itself does not take very long. Within days, the old outer layers skin will begin to peel off. The process will continue over the following days. Your skin condition will continue to improve during the weeks following. Chemical peels are effective for both men and women. Depending upon your desired needs, a peel can be used as a single treatment or may be repeated monthly. When you visit your Charlotte dermatologist, their esthetician can advise you of the most appropriate treatment for your goals.
