I used to freak out at the thought of a chemical peel. The honest truth is that I had preconceived ideas of what it was and left it at that. I needed to do a little more research. So here is some easy info to understand a little bit about the science behind chemical peels and maybe it can help you make an informed decision. With winter robbing our skin, where it feels like the Sahara desert, chemical peels sounds like a great skin treatment option!
Chemical peels is one of the most honest treatments you can give your skin! Why? Because it is the treatment to discard old cells and make way for new cells.
Generally, chemical peels penetrate the skin and break the bond between layers of the skin, so the top layers start to peel off. Depending on the type of peel and the chemical composition, determines how deep it penetrates.
It is important for our skin to drop off to make way for new cells, in fact our bodies rely on it and chemical peels are like relying on your skins natural regenerative processes.
The purpose of skin peels is to erase imperfections... remove damaged skin... improve skin tone and texture... and allow new skin to grow.
ABOUT THE PEEL TREATMENT
Firstly, it is very important to speak with a trusted professional therapist, who will do an assessment beforehand and make recommendations based on your skin requirements.
The peel takes about five minutes, although there is prepping and care involved, so from start to finish it will take about 15 minutes.
You may feel some tingling, a TCA peel is a little more intense, however the discomfort only lasts about two minutes.
You may need more than one peel to achieve desired results and as part of a holistic skin care regime with proper home care, a chemical peel results can last months or even years.
