New Year, New Skin, Why You Should Try a Chemical Peel

We’re finally past the stress of the holiday season. Now it’s time to usher in the new year and what better way to do that than with a total face rejuvenation? With one treatment, you can completely revitalize your face and have brand new skin for a brand new year.

Throughout the year, our faces deal with an onslaught of oil buildup, acne outbreaks, pimple popping, scarring, sun damage, and much more, but there’s one dermatology treatment that can clear it up. We’re talking about chemical peels. Chemical peel treatments involve the application of an acid solution to the face. The acid creates micro injuries forcing the skin to peel over the next few days. After the skin sloughs away, it leaves behind new, flawless skin. Still not convinced chemical peels are for you? Here are 5 reasons why you should try a chemical peel this new year.

1. Clears Acne Scars

One of the most difficult things to get rid of are acne scars. Many of us spend hundreds of dollars on creams that claim to get rid of dark spots and scars. But that could take months of diligent application before you see results, if you are lucky enough to see any. Chemical peels for acne scars, however, promote the regeneration of the skin. So when the new skin appears, it’ll be clear of skin depigmentation.

2. Makes Lines and Creases Disappear

Whether we are aging, stressing, or smiling, it’s almost impossible to not develop fine lines and facial ceases. These often appear on our foreheads, corners of the mouth, and even around the eyes. Luckily, a chemical peel for the face works on those unwanted lines. Just like the dark spots and scars, line and creasing issues disappear when the skin sloughs away, leaving behind full and elastic skin.

3. Gets Rid of Sun Damage

For many of us, the summers are brutal on the skin. When you get that nice summer tan or were unfortunately sun burnt, that is a sign of sun damage. Sun damage may include uneven pigmentation, solar lentigines (sun spots), and melasma (brown blotches). All three of these conditions affect just the surface of the skin. Because of this, these types of sun damage can be easily treated with a chemical peel.

4. Treats Mild Acne

Sure chemical peels can get rid of acne scars, but what about chemical peels for acne? Well, mild acne outbreaks are actually suitable for chemical peel treatment. Mild acne tends to appear thanks to a reaction that happens within the shallow levels of the skin. This means that the bumps that form, due to an overproduction of sebum or the presence of bacteria, grow on top of the skin rather than underneath. A chemical peel can go to work on the epidermis (top layer of skin) and sloughs away that surface skin along with the acne that rests on it.

5. Creates Smoother, More Youthful Look

With a chemical peel, treating acne scars, skin discoloration, fine lines, and wrinkles, you can imagine just how fresh the skin will appear after the process is finished. You’d be right! Most patients report immediately seeing the return of their healthy glow as well as a cleaner, smoother appearance. Yet, over the next few days, as the old skin peels away, the new skin shines through; free of all former impurities, marks, and damages, thus contributing to the overall youthful look.
