If you have never visited a professional in order to have a cosmetic treatment performed, you may feel a little unsure of which type of treatment you should get when it comes to looking your best as you get older. You likely realize that maintaining a good skin care routine at home is important. However, there will come a point when over-the-counter products and at-home skin treatments no longer do the trick. There will come a point when professional cosmetic treatments are needed to help you look your best. One option that is helpful to individuals, especially those who have never used professional cosmetic treatments, is chemical peels.
Chemical peels are treatments that can very easily be incorporated into your normal skin care routine. You can schedule one regularly in order to have fantastic, younger-looking skin. You might combine a chemical peel with other treatments for even better results.
The first benefit of receiving a chemical peel is that it is a non-invasive treatment that does not require you to have a lengthy recovery time. There are not many risks with this treatment, but there are many benefits that come from it. You can basically think of this treatment as a way to exfoliate the skin. As an exfoliation treatment, it helps to get rid of the top layer of skin, which mostly consists of dry, dead skin cells. Since this layer is removed by means of the solutions in the treatment, the younger skin underneath is revealed, and you look healthier and younger.
Over time, this treatment can help you deal with fine lines, acne scars, sunspots and other blemishes that we get on our skin as we get older. Each time the treatment is used, the top layers of skin are removed. The body naturally sends signals to your skin to produce healthy substances that make your skin look younger and fresher. Two of these things are collagen and elastin. These help your skin look full, fresh and elastic.
There are different strengths of chemical peels that can be used to help you deal with particular skin issues. When you come in for your initial consultation at Longevity, our skin care specialist can assess your face and come up with a plan of action for you.
