While its name may not sound very enticing for your face, a chemical peel could be your next best friend towards a confident complexion. In fact, a chemical peel may be just what you need to unlock a smoother, brighter and more even complexion that is lying just beneath your skin surface.
A chemical peel is a classic and time-tested means of facial skin rejuvenation. It is a non-invasive treatment that uses chemical exfoliation to revitalize the appearance of the skin and infuse it with ingredients that reduce lines, build collagen and improve sin tone. While chemical peels have been around for a long time, their formulas and results are always improving. At Westside Aesthetics, we offer VI Peel, one of the latest and most advanced chemical peel options that is safe for all skin types.
What Happens During a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are solutions containing unique chemical compounds and ingredients that safely revitalize the skin. When applied to the face, the peel causes damaged skin cells to slough off while sending signals to the living cells below to multiply and move to the surface. This essentially increases collagen production and hyaluronic acid production, which are the key elements to younger skin. Chemical peels can vary in type and strength. There are a variety of mild, moderate and deep chemical peels to address the specific concerns and skin type of each patient.
At RIVKIN Aesthetics, we rely on chemical peels to help patients reduce or improve the appearance of the following:
- Hyperpigmentation (sun spots or melasma)
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone
Facial Skin Rejuvenation
Chemical peels are ideal for patients who want to address wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture as well as acne breakouts. It is a low cost and low risk option that can be customized to your unique skin needs. Chemical peels are also an excellent way to enhance or compliment another cosmetic procedure, including injectables or plastic surgery. Routine chemical peels can even help your skin care products work better. It is important that patients understand the importance of using recommended skin care products before and after a chemical peel. This ensures that your chemical peel will produce the most optimal and long-lasting results possible.
Not only are chemical peels important for routine skin maintenance, but they can also deliver dramatic improvements in facial rejuvenation.
