The Top 5 Benefits of Chemical Peels

When your skin becomes cracked, dry, and discolored during the colder months, it can make you look tired, worn-out, and older than you really are. To get a more youthful look back, you might need to give your complexion a pick-me-up this spring with skin resurfacing procedures, such as a chemical peel. Our Denver-based AboutSkin Dermatology team uses this exfoliation technique to treat a large range of skin concerns, including everything from roughness and sun-damage to enlarged pores. Peels also give the skin a youthful, more refreshed, and glowing appearance overall. Read-on for five of the major benefits associated with peels: 

1. Minimizing Fine Lines and Wrinkles 

Wrinkles form on the face, especially on areas of thinning skin, due to facial expressions, sun damage, collagen loss caused by aging, smoking, or other causes. Chemical peels can be a complement or even an alternative to fillers and neuromodulators for improving the appearance of these wrinkles. They work by triggering the production of collagen and elastin. Peels can also soften wrinkles and creping, such as around the eyes, and can be used as a “maintenance regimen” between laser resurfacing sessions.

 2. Clearing Up Discoloration 

Chemical peels work well for reducing most types of pigmentation irregularities. The treatments lighten hyperpigmentation that takes the form of sun-damage, acne, melasma, scars, “age spots,” freckles, and other blemishes. The result is a more even and healthier skin tone. But it is always recommended to first see one of our Board-Certified Dermatologists for a skin evaluation and make sure that you don’t have any lesions of concern.

3. Controlling Acne 

The mild acid solutions used in peels (such as salicylic acid and glycolic acid) can help improve acne by unblocking pores, decreasing oil production, destroying bacteria, and improving inflammation. 

4. Making Skin Products More Effective

When environmental toxins from air pollution, dirt, oils, and dead, dry skin are blocking your pores, the products you’ve been using might not work as well. By removing the dull, damaged top layer on the surface, your skin is better able to absorb these scientific-grade skincare products. 

5. Enhancing the Skin Texture 

When chemical peels cause the outer part of the skin to shed, the new skin that grows in is much softer and smoother in comparison. This improves light scarring, bumps, luminosity and roughness.
