*Individual results may vary

It is never too early to start taking better care of your skin. After all, you don’t want to wait until you are experiencing visible signs of aging to start stockpiling skin care products; it’s best to invest in preventative skin care maintenance before you start noticing wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Consider this: 57% of Millennials use anti-aging products daily, while 28% use these products at least weekly. So this means that over half of the younger generation is already taking steps to really invest in the health of their skin.

Besides developing a great skin care routine, there are some great skin care treatments that will help postpone aging skin and give you that healthy glow. This is especially true with deep chemical peels, a skin care treatment that’s both common and little understood. If you are thinking about scheduling your first treatment or purchasing chemical peel products, here is what you should know first.

First off, what exactly is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a skin care treatment that is applied topically to the skin, and it causes the top layers of skin to literally peel off, revealing the luminous, blemish-free complexion hiding just beneath the surface.

What kinds of skin conditions can chemical peels treat?
There are plenty of different versions of a chemical peel including deep chemical peels that target brown spots on skin, a chemical peel for wrinkles, and even chemical peel products you can apply by yourself at home. There are also treatments that can help against some forms of acne and some types of scarring. The goal of this treatment is to really penetrate the skin and look renewed and refreshed.

What should I know before I go for this treatment?
There are a few things to know about chemical peels before you try one for the first time:

    • It is crucial to take care of your face before going in for the treatment, so you may need to invest in some different skin care products that can prepare your skin for the deep exfoliation to come.

 

    • A chemical peel can be applied on the face, neck, and even hands.

 

    • If you have especially sensitive skin, consult with your doctor first. Some chemical peel products may be too harsh for your particular skin type.

 

    • The peeling is nothing to be worried about! While it may look extreme, a little exfoliation is nothing to worry about.

 

    • You may need more than one peel to see the results you crave. Severe skin problems such as years of sun exposure or raised scars can only be treated with multiple deep chemical peel treatments.

 

  • You may see hyper-pigmentation after the peel, but this is temporary and will go away in time.

Chemical peels can be a great treatment for people of all ages. If you are ready to invest in the health of your skin, a chemical peel can help you put your best face forward.
