Chemical Peels That Will Make Your Skin Look Flawless

Switch up your skincare regimen
You ever wonder why certain celebrities like Nicole Murphy, Karrueche Tran, and Brandy Norwood have impeccable skin? It’s because these ladies have found a skincare regimen that works well for them. It’s now time for you to try a new skincare routine, chemical peel, that will have everyone turning their heads.

What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a procedure designed to remove dead skin cells of the face and make the surface of the face appear smooth and fresh. There are various forms of chemical peels ranging from light to deep, dependent upon your skin type, per Skin Tightening Sage.

Light chemical peels are known to have mild penetration when applied and all skin types can experience this procedure. Your skin will recover immediately after the process is completed. On the other hand, medium chemical peels cause second-degree burn and are more suitable for fair/light skin. It often takes a person 5-7 days for their skin to fully recover. However, deep chemical peels are most likely to pass through numerous layers of skin causing second-degree and can take between three weeks to two months for a person’s skin to recover.

What are the benefits of a Chemical Peel?
Although this skincare regimen may scare some women, it has great benefits and will have your skin thanking you. According to Skin Tightening Sage, the chemical peels are designed to:

  • Rid fine lines in the under-eye area and lips
  • Improve skin tone and acne
  • Remove dark patches on skin caused by pregnancy
  • Tighten skin due to aging and sun damage
  • Improve the appearance of sun-related spots

What are the 5 types of Chemical Peels?
1. Glycolic Acid Peel – This mild solution will help even out your skin tone, encourage the production of new skin cells, as well as reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure may cause redness, burning, tingling, and sensitivity but will disappear within a day.

2. Trichloroacetic acid peel – Also known as TCA peel, consists of a solution that causes skin cells to dry up and help improve sun-damaged skin. This method is used as a “spot” treatment to rid larger scars on any part of the body.

3. Salicylic Acid Peel – If you have sensitive skin, and just would like a mild procedure done then this chemical peel is perfect for you. It’s meant to treat blackheads, acne, whiteheads, inflammation, and clogged pores. You can often complete this regimen at home by purchasing a 15 percent solution of salicylic acid.

4. Jessner Peel – This type of chemical peel is a medium-intensity treatment created to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, melasma, and freckles. This solution is made up of salicylic acid, lactic acid, and resorcinol. Unlike the salicylic acid peel, this procedure cannot be completed at home.

5. Lactic Acid Peel – This routine is created with a mild and gentle solution to solve typical skincare issues that prevent signs of aging, along with diminishing deep acne scars.

Although some chemical peels have home kits, professional help is always recommended to achieve the best results.

Goodbye, dry dehydrated skin. Hello, healthy flawless skin!
