Chemical facial peels are incredibly popular for people of all ages because they can make a dramatic impact on the skin’s appearance. While chemical peels have traditionally been completed only with a licensed esthetician or dermatologist, there are many over-the-counter chemical peel options today. However, store-bought chemical peels are not as effective as medical grade facial peels and will not provide the same results as if they were completed by a professional.
At Vaughan Laser & Anti-Aging Medical Clinic, We only use Health Canada Approved chemical peels which involve applying a chemical solution to the skin that removes a layer of skin to reduce wrinkles, scars, and other signs of aging. The end result is transformed beautiful skin. But, because the high concentration of harsh chemicals used, only an experienced and licensed esthetician or dermatologist can use medical grade products safely and without risk of severe injury.
Store bought chemical peels may provide slight results but their concentration of the chemical is significantly reduced and they will not be as dramatic or long-lasting as a professional performed medical grade facial peel. Below are 3 advantages of having chemical facial peel in the office with a professional.
Not all peels are created equal, and one peel type doesn’t suit all. Certain ingredients may be more effective for treating acne, while others may be more successful in treating hyperpigmentation or the signs of aging.
When a chemical peel is applied, it causes the skin to peel off (it sounds more painful than it is). By peeling a layer of skin off, you remove scars, dark spots, sun damage and sign of aging on the surface of the skin. Thus, you are left with skin tone and pigment that appears more even.
Many chemical peels have compounds that are specifically designed to not only peel a layer of skin but also contain things like retinol, peptides, and antioxidants that help reduce and treat fine lines and wrinkles. A medical grade chemical peel is a staple of any anti-aging regimen.
Chemical peels remove a layer of skin so that a fresh, healthier layer can be revealed. Additionally, chemical peels unclog pores, help clear up acne, improve your skin’s ability to retain moisture, improve the cell turnover rate of your skin, and more. All of these things dramatically improve the surface texture of your skin. Your skin will have a natural glow that it did not have before. Additionally, if you wear makeup, the application will be far easier when you are working with a smoother more even-toned face.
