A chemical peel treatment is one of the most effective and safest ways to rejuvenate aging skin. Still, people have misconceptions regarding chemical peels. Let’s get rid of some of those.
Chemical peels are topically applied substances that help restore the skin’s youthful glow by removing the dead skin cells in the superficial layer. They come in various strengths; the peel you choose will depend on the issue that you want addressed. Chemical peels are effective for improving the appearance of acne scarring and sun-damaged skin (age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles).
Common chemical peel misconceptions
- Chemical peels are harsh on the skin.
The words chemical and peel may suggest that the treatments themselves are abrasive. On the contrary, chemical peels are actually made or derived from naturally occurring substances such as fruit. In addition, the possible risks and safety level of the chemical peel agents have been clinically tested before being approved.
- Chemical peels are only a one-time solution.
Unlike cosmetic surgery, chemical peels are not one-time treatments. Regular treatments are needed to maintain desired outcomes. Plus, it is important to maintain a diligent skin care routine at home.
- Chemical peels can be performed at home.
Although chemical peel packages are sold online, caution should be exercised when dealing with these types of offers. Improperly used and applied, home chemical peel kits can cause irreparable damage to your skin.
