Chemical peels have been used for centuries to renew and rejuvenate skin. Our environment, sun exposure, makeup, and the products we put on the skin can really take a toll on how the skin looks and feels.
I say, protect with SPF 30+ to prevent skin damage and correct with chemical peels. Even now, it’s the simplest and one of the most effective ways to get rid of surface skin damage and aging. Different ingredients in your peels can focus on different skin concerns. For example, improving skin hydration and brightening, Lactic Acid Peel is considered fantastic. Glycolic Acid Peels are great for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Jessner’s Peel is the gold standard for acne prone skin. TCA can be great for texture and aging issues. Vi Peel Precision Plus™ is also great for pigmentation issues like melasma and sun damage. Another fantastic peel for hormonal discoloration and melasma is Cosmelan Peel™. Talk to your professional to determine which peel is best for you. With peels you do get a downtime of three to five days but it’s worth the improvement.
Make sure you watch sun exposure while receiving peels, because the new skin is very fragile and needs protection to continue to look fresh and beautiful. You also need to hold off using your Tretinoin or Retin-A formulations (if you use any) for a few days before and after your chemical peel treatments. Some professionals combine microdermabrasion with the chemical peels and the results speak for themselves. Get a consultation and let an expert evaluate your skin to pick the right one for you.
