Why chemical peels remain a popular choice for skin rejuvenation
- Posted on: Apr 15 2021
Due to the exposure to the elements each and every day, and in conjunction with the natural changes that occur to the skin over the course of time, facial skin can look dull, tired, and have an uneven complexion. Patients will also mention to their doctor that they want to erase the fine lines and wrinkles that may have developed along with loose, relaxed skin. Dr. Matthew J. Trovato and his team have seen many patients seeking solutions for skin rejuvenation, and in many cases, will suggest chemical peels.
What is a chemical peel?
While the idea of a “chemical peel” might sound scary, it’s actually a practice that has been done for decades in rejuvenating the skin’s texture and tone. Chemical peels use a combination of chemical ingredients which are administered onto the face to help stimulate skin cell turnover and exfoliate the upper layer of the skin. This can smooth skin complexion while addressing imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, and redness.
How aggressive is a chemical peel?
Many patients are uneasy about chemical peels because they believe them to be extremely aggressive and requiring substantial time off of work and social activities. However, this is not always the case. There are varying levels of intensity for chemical peels. Superficial peels are the least aggressive. They are typically applied onto the skin and left on. The results of these peels are not nearly as noticeable though, and do require patients to have them done regularly to achieve healthier-looking skin. More aggressive, stronger peels do require some time for healing and recovery, but provide the most dramatic results in a much shorter period of time. Talking with your doctor is the best way to determine the treatment most appropriate for your unique needs.
