If you’re facing aged or damaged skin, you may be able to improve your skin tone and restore your self-confidence with a chemical peel. A chemical peel is an effective, non-invasive skin care treatment that can leave you with the beautiful, smooth skin you deserve. Keep reading to find out if you’re a good candidate for a chemical peel.
Why Get a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel can treat a wide variety of skin issues without surgery. It can resolve acne scars, sun damage, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and moderate sagging. If you are bothered by any of these skin issues, you may be a good candidate for a chemical peel.
It’s important to note that Dr. Schalit does not recommend this treatment for patients with darker skin as it can lead to uneven skin tone. He also discourages patients with infections, cut skin, sunburns, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, or rosacea from undergoing chemical peels. Those who are nursing or pregnant as well as anyone who has taken Accutane in the last six months should refrain from this procedure as well.

How Chemical Peels Work
Once your skin is thoroughly cleaned, a chemical solution will be placed on your skin so that a controlled wound can be created and new skin can take its place. You can expect to feel a burning sensation followed by a stinging sensation. Fortunately, these sensations will fade after five to ten minutes and cold compresses or pain medication can help relieve any discomfort.
Benefits of Chemical Peels
A chemical peel can offer a variety of benefits. It can improve your skin tone, texture, and clarity. It can also clear up breakouts, reduce discoloration caused by sun damage, smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, and address visible scars and imperfections. A chemical peel also has the potential to stimulate new collagen and healthy skin cell growth, which are essential to a flawless complexion. In addition, this treatment can increase the effectiveness of at-home skin care products by allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin.
