About Chemical Peels
The phrase “chemical peel” may sound as if the procedure is abrasive on a patient’s skin tissue, but it is actually a gentle process using a variety of chemical treatments designed to exfoliate dead cells. This noninvasive cosmetic procedure invigorates the skin on the face and neck, making it radiant and flawless in just one treatment from a qualified medical expert.
Many individuals want to enhance their skin’s appearance, especially on the neck and face while reducing sun damage, unsightly blemishes or the effects of aging. However, they are nervous about undergoing a traditional facelift or invasive plastic surgery, leading to considering a chemical peel instead. It is important for patients to consult with a knowledgeable physician before having a cosmetic procedure to have a thorough examination in order to have the appropriate treatment.
How a Chemical Peel Works
A chemical peel is designed primarily for the face or neck of adults but is occasionally used on the body. In a medical facility, mild acids are applied in a carefully controlled way to improve the upper layers of the epidermis to reduce discolorations, fine lines or acne. After a chemical peel treatment, a patient’s skin feels fresh and rejuvenated.
Cosmetic surgeons have used chemical peel procedures on patients for many years because it is an easy way to improve the skin’s texture with only one treatment.
