One of the most commonly requested non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the US is the chemical skin peel. Admittedly it sounds like a bit of a scary affair – the word ‘chemical’ is never particularly appealing – but the skin peel really is about as safe as a treatment can be.
The process itself is relatively simple and takes very little time to complete. Chemicals are carefully combined with a series of other natural ingredients that, when placed on the skin, force the old, tired, dead layers to peel off, exposing the new, fresh skin beneath. Not only are chemical skin peels perfect for use as an occasional skin refreshing treatment for anyone, but also they are uniquely effective against a range of skin conditions.
Some of the key benefits of chemical skin peels include:
- The most exceptional exfoliating of the skin, far above and beyond what any home products are capable of
- A chemical peel can immediately reduce the appearance of fine lines and make wrinkles far less noticeable
- Chemical peels thoroughly reduce the residual effects of acne
- Sun damaged skin and skin with pigmentation problems also react extremely well to chemical peels
There are dozens of different types of chemical skin peels available across the US. All are carefully formulated to address specific skin problems — excessive oil production, skin that’s generally dry and lifeless, excessive blemishing of the skin, and myriad other conditions — and the results are immediate and often quite remarkable.
So, when it comes to a little much-needed pampering or a thoughtful gift for someone special, the refreshing and rejuvenating effects of a chemical peel really are hard to beat!
