Did you know that chemical peels are an effective way to transform your skin to give visible and impressive results? Not all peels are created equally and it’s important to use the right peel for your skin concern so that you get the best results. Some might find that one chemical peel treatment is effective on the skin, while others might need two different peels to get the results they’re after. If you’re unsure as to which Image Skincare chemical peel is right for you, read on to learn more.
What is a chemical peel?
If you’ve never had a chemical peel before, it might sound scary. But it’s a completely non-invasive and gentle professional treatment that has incredible results. It even gives results to those with sensitive skin and has minimal downtime too.
Essentially, chemical peels use acids or enzymes (or both) to exfoliate the skin, rather than a physical exfoliant like a microbead. These acids and enzymes remove dead cells from the skin’s surface, stimulating the production of new cells. They also clear out the pores, helping to reduce breakouts.
Usually, chemical peels involve acids including glycolic, TCA and salicylic acid. IMAGE Skincare chemical peels also include other ingredients like peptides and retinol, which have skincare benefits too.
What do chemical peels do for the skin?
As mentioned above, not all chemical peels are the same. For example, some peels work on a deeper level, helping to improve the skin’s texture, making it ideal for those with rough, coarse skin. They can also work on those with deep wrinkles, scarring and severe photoaging.
Other chemical peels target dark spots on the skin, melasma, acne scars and fine lines and wrinkles. They can improve the skin’s tone and boost collagen production too.
