Benefits of a Chemical Peel

A chemical peel is a popular option for many individuals when it comes to improving the appearance of the face. Chemical peels are a unique mixture of chemicals that are mixed into a special solution. The peel is applied to the skin, and it is used to address problems such as dead skin, blemishes and other skin care problems. These professional peels come in different variations, ranging from very mild to deep. Each peel has its own purpose, and each peel has its own positive aspects.

So, what are the benefits of a mild chemical peel? Well, a mild peel is obviously not designed to address deep skin issues, such as hyperpigmentation or deep acne scars. To the contrary, this treatment is designed to address issues that are affecting the external layers of your skin.

Many people use a mild peel to address problems with acne or to make light blemishes disappear. A mild chemical peel is going to revitalize your appearance and make you look younger. It can help with very mild sun damage, as well as some mild pigmentation issues. These peels are designed to make you look younger, to make you look fresher and to rejuvenate your overall appearance.

Then there are medium-depth chemical peels. These are designed to address deeper layers in your skin. If you have facial lines, you may see them disappear altogether after this type of peel. A medium peel can be used on individuals who have freckles on their face, who have acne scarring and who are battling with dry skin. Medium to moderate sun damage can be addressed with a medium peel. This peel is also great for individuals who have more noticeable pigmentation issues, who have blotchy skin or who are just looking to refresh their overall appearance.

A deep chemical peel is designed to address more serious problems with your skin. For example, if you have certain growths on your face, a deep chemical peel can help. This procedure is also designed to minimize the appearance of deeper acne scars, deeper lines on the face and age spots. With just one treatment, a deep chemical peel can leave you looking younger, and the results last for a very long time.

Chemical peels are versatile. They can be used to address a wide range of issues. If you are dealing with sun-damaged skin, skin discolorations, scars or precancerous growths, set up a consultation at Lincoln Park Aesthetics in Chicago. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
