Light chemical peels help a person to deal with a wide variety of skin issues and give them skin that is glowing, youthful, and free of blemishes. If you would like to have skin that is as flawless as most celebrities, chemical peels may be right for you. However, before you schedule a consultation with us, you likely are interested in learning more about them.
The very first thing that you should know is that chemical peels come in different strengths. There are light chemical peels, medium chemical peels, and strong chemical peels. For the most part, light chemical peels are what most individuals get, even when they visit a salon or spa for a facial. They help a person to address specific skin issues and do not require them to have any downtime.
Medium strength chemical peels can help individuals who are trying to address deep skin issues, and they are happy to spend a little bit of time recovering. For example, medium strength chemical peels can be used for individuals who are dealing with acne scarring, wrinkles, and similar issues. The strongest chemical peels are usually only performed once in a person’s lifetime. They require quite a bit of recovery time but can produce fantastic results.
When you come into our office for a light chemical peel, we will usually begin by cleansing the skin. We want to make sure that it is free of makeup, oil, and dirt. Then we will apply a chemical solution to your skin. The strength of the solution as well as how long it stays on your skin will be determined by the results you are looking to get. Most people only have it applied to their skin for a few minutes.
Light chemical peels work for several reasons. First, they exfoliate the skin. They get rid of the top layers of skin, which are usually the layers that cause your skin to look dull and dry. Second, they encourage your skin to produce beneficial substances that help your skin to look young. For example, the production of collagen is increased.
It is possible for you to get light chemical peels on a regular basis. Many of our clients schedule a monthly facial that includes a light chemical peel. Please feel free to schedule an appointment at Boulder Plastic Surgery in Boulder, CO. We would love to explain more about the benefits that you can receive from getting light chemical peels. Now is the time to deal with specific skin issues and help your skin look radiant. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
