Med Spa 101: How a Chemical Peel Rejuvenates Your Skin

A chemical peel is one of the most popular medical spa treatments, and for good reason. Actually, for several good reasons. Read on to learn more about chemical peels and what they can do for your skin.

What is a Chemical Peel?

During a chemical peel, a med spa technician treats your skin with plant and sugar-derived acids that penetrate deeply and help to remove dead skin. Chemical peels can be customized depending on the specific issues you want to address, such as sun damage or uneven texture. Here are some of the chemical peel benefits that keep so many people coming back for more.

Detoxify Your Skin

The exfoliation you get during a chemical peel helps to remove dead skin cells and unclog your pores to give you skin that looks and feels cleaner.

Improve Skin Texture

Chemical peels can help encourage faster cell turnover, leaving you with softer and more youthful looking skin.

Stimulate Collagen Growth

When the outer layer of your skin is shed during the chemical peel process, underlying layers are stimulated to produce more collagen. This means that your skin is literally rebuilding itself with fresh, new cells.

Minimize Blemishes and Scars

For people who have suffered with acne, one of the most exciting chemical peel benefits is that it can help minimize acne and acne scarring. By using specialized acids, your chemical peel technician can target clogged pores and acne scars to help even out your skin tone.

Enhances Your Skin Care Products

Because there won’t be a layer of dead skin blocking them, all those skin care products you’ve invested in will be able to penetrate more easily and work better.
