Facials can help transform your skin, but when you undergo a peel, you’ll get all of the benefits of a facial plus the extras that stem from the ingredients included within this treatment. At the office of Dr. Bruce Kadz in Beverly Hills, CA, we know just how important chemical peels are to the overall integrity of your skin. Our different peels can be customized to your needs so that you can rejuvenate your skin and clear up any problematic skin conditions.
What Can a Chemical Peels Do for Your Skin?
In short, chemical peels can help improve and even transform your skin. When you incorporate regular peels into your skincare routine, you’ll see an improvement in any problematic or stubborn skin conditions you may have such as pigment issues, acne, wrinkles, crow’s feet, fine lines, sun spots, dull skin tone, and poor complexion, among others. A peel can help you accomplish what your at-home skincare products simply cannot.
The Top 10 Benefits of a Chemical Peels
The benefits of incorporating peels into your skincare routine are seemingly endless, but there are ten that stand out as the top benefits that they have to offer.
1. There Are Different Strengths
If you’ve always wanted to try a peel but have been hesitant to do so because you think your skin can’t handle it, know that there is a peel that will suit your skin. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to peels. There are different peel solutions whose ingredients vary based on the needs of your skin.
Light peels typically contain ingredients that come from nature, such as fruit enzymes and other mild acids. They accomplish the goal of rejuvenating and exfoliating the skin and can target and treat mild skin discoloration and rough skin texture. These peels are beneficial for those who have never experienced a peel before and want to start slow.
Medium peels are a step up from light peels and typically include ingredients like glycolic acid or diluted trichloroacetic acid. These peels are successful at reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, freckles, and skin discoloration. They can also improve skin texture and treat pre-cancerous growths.
Strong peels are the most intense peels and are typically made with a higher-strength trichloroacetic acid or carbolic acid. Deep peels can treat and remove moderate lines and wrinkles, age spots, shallow scars, and freckles. They’ll improve the overall state of your skin and make it healthier and more vibrant. Because these peels are so intense, they are only performed once per patient.
2. They Help Reduce the Appearance of Wrinkles
No one wants wrinkles, and if you’re not a skincare guru, it can be frustrating when you notice those wrinkles because you know that you don’t want them, but you don’t know what to do about them. Peels can help target and reduce the appearance of those wrinkles in a way that some regular everyday products cannot.
Once you add peels to your routine, you’ll see those lines and wrinkles begin to fade and you’ll help prevent the future development of new lines.
3. They’ll Improve Pigment Issues
Pigment issues are some of the most frustrating skin conditions because it seems like nothing can treat them. All of the at-home tricks, like applying lemon juice to your sunspots, ordering questionable whitening products from online sources, and hoping for the best just never seen to pan out, so what do you do?
Our peels can help provide you with a solution that you may have never thought possible. The concentrated ingredients within these peels work to lighten these stubborn spots and even out your skin tone over time.
4. They Help Improve Acne-Prone Skin
Acne can drain you of your confidence. If you’ve ever experienced prolonged bouts of acne, it can be deteriorating to your confidence and the typical creams and acne spot treatments can often make matters worse. Whether you’ve struggled with acne all of your life or you’re trying to figure out how to deal with the mystery that is adult acne, we can help you.
Excess oil contributes the acne, along with many other factors. Peels contain acne-fighting acids that can help temporarily reduce the total amount of oil on the skin and produced by the body so that the skin can heal. Regular peels are a way to combat acne so that you can get clear, beautiful skin and feel confident in your appearance.
5. They Make You Glow
Glowing skin has been a trend ever since JLO made it popular. So far, that trend hasn’t changed; everyone still wants glowing skin. You can get glowing skin that is temporary by using cosmetic products, or you can get the real thing. We can help you get skin that glows from the inside out with our peels.
Peels have the natural and powerful ability to change your skin and brighten the surface so that it glows 24 hours a day, not just when you apply makeup. You’ll get a glow that lasts from when you wake up in the morning until when you go to bed at night.
6. You Can Undergo Multiple Treatments
Chemical peels typically aren’t a one-and-done kind of treatment, unless your skin requires the deepest peel. You’ll see benefits after one peel and can continue them at regular intervals throughout the year.
During your initial treatment, your esthetician will analyze your skin and help determine the best treatment plan for your needs so that you can schedule your lighter and medium peel appointments each month at a time that works best for your needs.
7. They’re Affordable
Some skin care treatments will make a bigger dent in your budget than others, but peels are not one of those treatments. They are affordable and those who want to improve their skin but don’t want to break the bank can easily add these treatments to their routine.
Whether you have an unlimited or a limited skincare budget, you’ll love what these treatments can do to your skin and you’ll reap all of the benefits.
8. They’ll Help With Acne Scarring
One of the worst things you can experience next to acne is acne scarring. Acne scars are a reminder of your acne and can make you feel just as self-conscious about your skin as acne can. Whether your acne scars are from last year or last week, a peel can help lighten your scars so that your skin takes on a more uniform texture.
Peels remove the top layer of skin and reveal a brighter, fresher layer of skin beneath. This new skin lacks the layer of built-up dead skin, which is what helps improve the appearance of your acne scars.
9. They Can Attack Pre-Cancerous Growths
Precancerous growths are precursors to cancer, so getting rid of them is of the utmost importance. When you hear that you have a precancerous growth on your skin, your first instinct may be to panic, but we can help treat your skin to get it back to the healthiest state possible.
Peels can help target and address these growths so that you can live free of fear and anxiety about not only the state of your skin but the state of your health as well.
10. They Aren’t Limited to the Face
When it comes to peels, the face is the most common treatment area, but it doesn’t stop there. Your neck, chest, and hands can all benefit from a peel. Our peels can be used in these areas to refresh, rejuvenate, and restore health to the skin.
What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are a form of chemical exfoliation that comes in various strengths to treat different skin types, problems, and needs. It is the opposite of physical exfoliation, which uses abrasive particles or a combination of ingredients to exfoliate the skin.
Chemical exfoliation exfoliates the skin by chemically removing the top layer of the skin through its concentration of acids and other ingredients.
Why Happens During Treatment?
Peels are often performed in conjunction with facials or sometimes can even be done as stand-alone treatments. During your treatment, the peel will be applied to your skin for a set period and will then be removed. While it might seem as though a peel is only on your skin for a short period of time, peels can accomplish a lot in that short period.
In the time that it takes for the peel to be applied to and removed from your skin, the entire top layer of dead skin cells will be removed from your skin and you’ll be left with a new, fresh layer of skin.
How Long Do Treatments Take?
You can expect a peel to take approximately the same amount of time as a standard facial. During a skin consultation with one of our experts, we’ll review your goals and help determine which peel is right for you, and at that point, we will give you a better idea of how long your specific appointment will take. You will be able to relax and enjoy the entire experience.
When Will I See Results?
You will notice an immediate improvement in the appearance of your skin after one treatment, and your results will only continue to improve over time as you undergo regular treatments.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Your results will last for weeks after your initial peel and will continue to improve and last longer and longer after each individual treatment that you undergo. We will do everything in our power to make sure that you are provided with the treatment plan that will give you the longest-lasting results.
Am I a Candidate?
If you want to improve the state of your skin, treat and improve problematic skin conditions, or just get beautiful skin, you are most likely a candidate for one of our peels.
When you come in and consult with one of our estheticians, we’ll confirm that you are a candidate and we can determine which treatment is right for you and will best meet all of your needs and your goals. We’ll develop a plan that helps you get the most beautiful skin.
