The quality of our skin tends to diminish as we age. This happens due to many reasons, which can include everything from the side effects of growing older to the accumulation of contaminants on the outer layers of the skin. This can make your face look and feel older than it actually is. You may try to hide these effects by using makeup, but this often only compounds the problems that aging created.
The good news is that rejuvenating your skin may be as simple as seeking professional chemical peels. These can help recondition your skin, remove contaminants and improve the overall condition of your skin.
What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels remove a certain amount of skin cells from the face. They can utilize a number of different acids, which in turn determine the effectiveness of chemical peels. This procedure is safe when performed by an experienced dermatological care provider.
The first thing to understand about chemical peels is that they are designed to initiate a controlled destruction upon the skin. This should not be something you are afraid of, as dermabrasion removes skin in similar ways while remaining completely safe.
The next thing to understand is that chemical peels are designed to uniformly remove undesirable skin cells. This allows them to provide an even rejuvenation to your face, as the healing effects will be over your entire face rather than just one or two areas.
The last thing to understand about chemical peels is the fact that no two peels are necessarily the same. Different ingredients may be used to achieve a greater effect. Depending upon the type of chemical peel, nutrients and other conditioning ingredients may be included to help the skin heal while there is an increased ability to absorb nutrients through the skin.
Why Do Chemical Peels Rejuvenate the Face?
The secret behind the power of chemical peels resides in the way they target undesirable components in the skin. They can affect just a small amount of skin to loosen up dirt particles and to make skin less dull, or they can penetrate deep into the skin to affect the underlying collagen. This enables unwanted cells, which would typically remain until a person undergoes some type of debridement, to be removed. The body can then begin manufacturing new cells, which in turn allows for a greater degree of skin rejuvenation to occur.
This power to rejuvenate the skin comes with another important advantage: chemical peels are incredibly convenient to undergo. They usually take less than an hour to perform, and the results can start to be seen within a few days.
