“What’s a chemical peel?”, is a question all aestheticians hear at least once a day in the spa setting. A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, chest, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun.
A chemical peel enhances and smoothes the texture of the skin. It is an effective treatment for facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. They exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin, revealing a new skin layer with improved tone, texture, and color. In addition to full facial rejuvenation, certain types of skin peels can also be used for spot treatments and as a way to remove stretch marks or rejuvenate skin elsewhere on the body.
Chemical peel is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures in the world, and was performed in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome to help people achieve smoother, more beautiful skin. Today, chemical facial peels are popular because they offer nearly immediate results and can be performed as an outpatient procedure.
Before you decide to try a chemical peel treatment, make sure to research the spa you are planning on receiving the treatment from.
