Skin care experts would agree that exfoliation plays a key role in maintaining a clear, smooth, ageless complexion. It comes down to removing the top layer of dead, dull and damaged skin cells. Exfoliation can be physical or chemical in nature. The most effective method involves chemical peels that use acids or enzymes to dissolve the old cells. These treatments do an impressive job of creating a more even skin tone and improved skin texture. Chemical peels also allow for better absorption of anti-aging serums and creams.
Simple, Fast, Old-School
Chemical peels have been around for several decades now and provide a classic way of creating a more youthful and radiant complexion. There is no expensive gadgetry or too-strong laser device involved that could potentially harm the skin. Instead, this old-fashioned technique involves the application of a strong acid to the face that is precisely timed and properly removed by a skilled aesthetic technician.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes, and you leave our clinic with a smoother, brighter complexion, clean and smaller-looking pores, and fine lines that look less visible. Your skin has been exfoliated to the ultimate degree and will feel firm and refreshed.
A series of professional chemical peels every few weeks is excellent for the skin and offers cumulative effects.
Versatile in Type/Strength
Chemical peels are not a one-size only type of beauty treatment. In fact, there are several kinds that come in varying strengths. That means there is a chemical exfoliant tolerable for every skin type and skin condition. Each peel has a specific purpose.
For example, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are popular light, lunchtime peels. AHAs include glycolic acid peels that are made from sugar. These acids gently penetrate only the outer layer of skin. They can improve skin texture and minor skin discoloration. Beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) are another light peel that can be done during lunchtime and effectively tame acne-prone complexions.
Each peel has a strength or potency to it. Our professionals will do a thorough examination of your skin to determine exactly which peel is the best choice for you.
There is no way you can maintain gorgeous skin throughout your life without the proper exfoliation. All healthy, smooth complexions require skin cell turnover, and chemical peels provide speedy action in that regard. These treatments can improve the general signs of aging and sun damage. A professional peel is your best bet, and the skill of your technician matters. Here at Radiant Skin Dermatology and Laser, we take great pride in our experienced team of skin care experts.
