Chemical peel treatments can help restore a more youthful appearance to the facial skin. This is accomplished by removing one or more layers of the skin. When the epidermal layer is removed, the healthy dermis that lies beneath goes into overdrive to produce a new epidermal layer. This smooths away fine lines and wrinkles. If a deeper-level problem, such as scarring or other forms of hyperpigmentation, needs to be improved, a deeper peel treatment can be performed.
So, which is the right peel treatment for you? When we consult with our clients, we can explain the difference between superficial peels and deep peels, and we discuss which procedure will yield the best results based on a client’s individual concerns.
Candidates for Chemical Peels
If the client is concerned about thin lines and wrinkles that don’t reach below the epidermal layer, a superficial peel will probably be the correct choice. Individuals with visible smile lines and crow’s feet can typically benefit from regularly scheduled superficial peel treatments.
Those who are experiencing deeper facial wrinkles and hyperpigmentation further below the skin surface may want to consider a deeper type of chemical peel. This treatment addresses problems caused by sun exposure. Age spots become darker, freckles become more prominent, and blotchy patches are more noticeable. These can be improved with a deep chemical peel.
Choose the Right Peel Treatment
A chemical peel is a minimally-invasive procedure that stimulates healthy skin growth. We can carefully choose the proper acid formula for the client’s skin tone. These days, peel treatments don’t cause anywhere near as much lightening of the skin, and this is because of advancements in formulations. There’s a proper acid formula and peel treatment depth to suit almost any individual.
Many of our clients choose to have a superficial peel treatment performed at first. In this way, the skin remains smooth and wrinkle-free. However, it all depends on the unique situation.
