Top Benefits of Chemical Peels

The many benefits of a chemical peel have made it one of the most popular facial cosmetic treatments.

While there are many options for non-surgical facial rejuvenation, including lasers and injectables, a chemical peel can often achieve similar results with a shorter recovery time.
“Contrary to popular belief, the majority of physicians still readily use chemical peels in their cosmetic patients, and they remain as one of the most popular cosmetic procedures, following botulinum toxin and filler procedures,” writes Dr. Marina Landau of Tel Aviv University in a recent Cosmetic Surgery Times article.

How Chemical Peels Work

Chemical peels work by exfoliating the top layer of skin to reveal the healthier skin below. They come in a range of strengths. We determine the strength of the peel by evaluating your skin type and the amount of skin damage you have.

Chemical peels can treat freckles and other pigmentation problems.

Chemical peels are versatile; they can treat a variety of skin problems, including:

  • Acne scarring
  • Sun damage
  • Wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Freckling

Chemical peels are also easy to perform, and they can give you significant improvement in a variety of skin conditions.
Lasting results are another benefit of the chemical peel. For instance, the results achieved with a deep peel can last for years, which means very few or no maintenance treatments for you.
If you have extensive wrinkling, you may find that a chemical peel is cost-effective, because the peel treats the skin on your entire face rather than a specific spot.
The recovery period after a chemical peel depends on the intensity: the deeper the peel, the longer the recovery period, with average recovery times taking few days to two weeks.
