If you’d like to achieve a smooth, healthy, and bright complexion, chemical peels may be a great option. They can resolve a variety of skin problems and completely refresh the appearance of your skin. Since chemical peels do involve chemicals, many patients wonder if they are safe for their skin. Keep reading to find out the answer to this question.
After the peel is applied to your face, it will stay there until the solution is ready to be washed off, or the peel can be left on and will self neutralize.
Benefits of Chemical Peels
One of the greatest benefits of chemical peels is their versatility. They can improve a variety of skin conditions including acne scars, sun spots, lines and wrinkles, and blemishes. Chemical peels can help you achieve brighter, smoother skin without surgery or extreme discomfort or downtime.
If you have an uneven skin tone and wish you had a younger-looking complexion, you may be a good candidate for chemical peels. They can diminish the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles, fade acne scars and hyperpigmentation, and smooth out rough patches on your face.
We do not recommend chemical peels to patients with excessive sun exposure, warts, active Herpes Simplex, skin sensitivity, or aspirin allergies. Patients who are pregnant or have serious medical conditions should avoid chemical peel as well.
