With the stress of the pandemic plus many clinics being closed for several months; many are anxious to get back to taking care of their skin. The question is should you get a facial or a chemical peel?
The two are very different. Facials are extremely popular as men and women like to unwind, and stimulate skin cells with massages and lotions. While this treatment may be hydrating and relaxing, it will not address most skin concerns.
Chemical peels are advantageous as they exfoliate and peel away dead skin cells and debris that build up on the skin from pollution and dirt. This allows healthier glowing skin to be revealed.
Because chemical peels do more than a light exfoliation they can address skin issues such as wrinkles, scarring and skin discoloration.
Chemical peels can vary in strength. Light chemical peels can help to remove dead skin cells and give your skin a healthy glow with minimal downtime. This chemical peel treatment can be done every 2-5 weeks for optimal results, and maintenance.
Medium to deep chemical peels remove skin cells on the epidermis and middle layer. This is to treat wrinkles, acne scars, and skin discoloration. These chemical peels can have some initial discomfort to the skin but have extremely profound results. Patients will experience improved skin tone, clarity, skin texture
Deeper chemical peels will require patients up to a week of downtime as your skin sheds and regenerates. Patients will experience skin sensitivity and redness for up to 7 days. This can be done every 3-9 months.
