Chemical peels can be gentler than they sound
- Posted on: Aug 30 2016
Chemical peels are popular procedures, especially for our patients who are familiar with the outcomes. But some people have yet to experience the noticeable results a chemical peel can provide.
Maybe there should be a different name for “chemical” peels
The word might make you think of a harsh treatment that will leave your skin burned, swollen and painful, with a recovery period that you don’t have time for. The reality is, there are many versions of chemical peels, and at Aura Skin, we offer a gentle peel that can provide strong results.
The Vitalize Peel
Perfect for sensitive people with sensitive skin, this chemical peel can reduce the signs of aging, using alpha- and beta- hydroxy acids, resorcinol and retinoic acid. This combination can gently remove the outermost cell layer, revealing smoother, younger looking skin.
For smooth, glowing skin, think chemical
If you’re curious about chemical peels, it might be time to introduce yourself to this useful component of an effective skincare routine. Here’s what you should know.
There are many different types of chemical peels
The main difference lies in the type of peel and the strength of the treatment, but they all work basically the same, encouraging the skin to peel off a thin layer of aged and damaged cells. This also stimulates your cells to turnover more rapidly.
The purpose of a chemical peel is to treat the problem areas that bother you, from wrinkles to pimples. A chemical peel can:
- Refresh your complexion
- Provide more even skin texture
- Treat acne
- Reduce and remove brown spots
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
Peels can actually benefit just about everyone, no matter your skin issue or problem. That’s because we can all benefit from the complexion enhancing effects that faster skin cell turnover can provide.
What’s your goal for your skin?
If it’s fresher, smoother, more youthful looking skin, chemical peels should become part of your skincare plan. And for those who shy away from intense treatments, Vitalize could be right for you.
