Benefits of Getting Facial Peels
Just beneath the dull outer surface of your skin lies a smoother, fresher complexion. Facial peels help you get rid of old, clogging cells to reveal healthy, glowing skin beneath. At Beacon Dermatology in Asheville, North Carolina, dermatologist Michael Rains, MD, FAAD and his team offer a number of customized facials to reveal youth, even tone and texture, and erase acne scars.
A chemical peel involves applying a solution of chemicals to the surface of your skin. The chemical peel takes away old surface skin cells, helping you shed a dull, imperfect complexion.
Chemical peels remain one of the most popular noninvasive skin treatments in the United States. Here’s more about the amazing benefits of facial peels and why you should make an appointment today.
Stimulate natural improvement in your skin health
Following a chemical peel, the skin cells that lie beneath those that are sloughed away start to multiply and boost collagen production. Collagen is a major skin protein that improves skin resilience and elasticity. Your production of natural hyaluronic acid also increases, giving you youthful suppleness. Your skin appears more radiant as a result of increased cellular activity.
Improve the effectiveness of your skincare products
After a chemical peel, skincare products are better able to penetrate the surface of your skin. Moisturizers, serums, and other products no longer have to move past dull, old skin before nurturing the healthy cells.
Reduce the appearance of sun damage
The sun feels good on your skin, but it silently does damage to your cells. Years later, you develop sun (age) spots, freckles, and areas of melasma. The sun can also affect skin texture and elasticity.
A chemical peel helps fade discoloration, fine lines, and blotchiness that’s been caused by sun exposure.
Control other pigmentation problems
Melasma, or discoloration of patches of skin, can be caused by the sun, but also due to genetics or hormone changes. A chemical peel can fade areas of discoloration and even out your skin tone.
Make you look younger
Chemical peels can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the mouth, forehead, and eyes.
If you have mild lines and wrinkles, the Beacon Refresh Peel is a mild treatment that can offer a youth-enhancing effect. For more moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, the Beacon Reveal or Beacon Renew Peel are a bit stronger and offer greater smoothing benefits.
Reduce acne scarring
Chemical peels can erase the appearance of acne scars. The TCA CROSS Peel offered at Beacon Dermatology is specially made with a high concentration of trichloroacetic acid that targets specific acne scars and helps produce new collagen and elastin.
Provide different levels of intensity
All chemical peels are not the same. Some are mild and leave, cause only mild exfoliation, and require no downtime. If you have deeper problems, like severe wrinkling or deep scars, you may elect a medium-intensity or a deep-intensity peel to create smoother, more even toned skin.
Medium-intensity and deep peels may require a little more downtime and post procedure care, but the ultimate results are worth the extra effort.
