Skin rejuvenation procedures allow the body to shed damaged epidermis while at the same time producing new skin cells. Our skin grows from the bottom up. The epidermis that makes up the surface of our skin was created in the underlying layers. When we are faced with brittle, discolored and wrinkled skin, this negatively affects our appearance. Getting rid of the uppermost layer accelerates the process of new cell creation.
Chemical peels accomplish this by safely removing the epidermis through the application of a special solution. It’s a simple cosmetic treatment that safely flakes away the damaged skin and kick starts the rejuvenation process. We offer complete consultation services for those interested in learning more about how chemical peels can rejuvenate the facial skin safely and without major side effects.
Types of Chemical Peels
There are various types of chemical peels available, and they all claim to do different things. One of the best peels out there is the SkinMedica® Vitalize Peel®, which can treat a variety of unwanted skin conditions, including acne scarring, sun damage and age spots, just to name a few. During a consultation at our office in Waltham, we will determine if this peel is right for you.
The Healing and Rejuvenating Process
The affected skin typically flakes away after just days, but the real magic occurs over the following weeks. The body builds up new skin tissue from the bottom up, so increased tissue creation takes time. However, gradually, the newer, healthier and smoother epidermal layer becomes visually apparent. The face is now more radiant and glowing, and small lines and wrinkles, especially those that form around the corners of the mouth and on the forehead, are far less visible.
Advantages of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels don’t involve surgery or skin repositioning, so there is far less downtime for the patient. Also, peel treatments don’t plump the skin as do filler injections, so there’s no risk of bumpiness or uneven texture following the procedure.
Peel solutions have evolved over the past decade, and we now have much more control over which acid solution will work best for a particular skin tone and skin thickness. These advances make chemical peels much safer than ever before.
