At Wafa Brows, we’re proud to provide the finest range of beauty treatments aimed at helping you look your best and feel your best. Chemical peels are a tried and true method of improving your skin’s complexion. However, there are many methods of doing so, each with their own pros and cons. Today we’ll be looking at chemical peels and whether they are right for you!
What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel treatment is exactly as it sounds, it is a peel that is applied to the skin by your beauty professional. A chemical peel often consists of common chemical exfoliants such as lactic acid, salicylic acid, as well as natural ingredients such as fruit acids. Chemicals peels come in a variety of different strengths depending on the needs of the client.
How Do Chemical Peels Work?
There are a wide variety of facials on the market that can help with many different aspects of skincare. Typically, chemical peels are great at exfoliating the skin. Throughout the months or even years, there are parts of our skin that a typical scrub or face wash can’t help. Our skin naturally exfoliates to some degree, like many things this process slows as we age. Dead skin and dull layers build up and something like a chemical peel can assist with peeling off those layers to reveal a new you underneath!
It is this deep exfoliating process that can confer dramatic results for those looking to improve the feel of their skin or their complexion.
Common Skin Issues that Chemical Peels Help Treat
Chemical peel treatment assists with:
- Reducing the appearance of fine lines on the face
- Treating wrinkles caused by aging or sun damage
- Reduce the appearance of acne scars or other scars
- Certain types of acne can be managed with chemical peels
- Improve the feel and look of the skin by creating a more uniform complexion
It would be difficult to imagine that your average adult or even teenager has not suffered from at least one or two of these issues with their skin. That is why a chemical peel has been an enduring and popular treatment for anyone looking to maintain the best skin possible.
What to Expect After Getting a Chemical Peel
Depending on the strength and depth of the peel, you will experience mild to heavy peeling of your skin in the treated area within the week. This is nothing to be alarmed at, it is the results of the peel coming in. Milder peels can be done more often, while more powerful peels should only be done a few times in a year at most. Once your skin has peeled, we advise you to be wary of excessive sun exposure, as your skin in the treated area is still “fresh”, and thus sensitive.
A burning sensation during the peel, and some mild stinging afterward are all normal responses to the exfoliation process.
