Bothered from the breakouts you’ve been experiencing, especially from wearing that mask? Then you might be wondering what you can do and is there anything to help. Try a chemical peel.

Before we dive into the benefits of chemical peel, let us discuss, what chemical peel is.

It is a procedure where various Alpa Hydroxy Acids (AHA fruit enzymes) or Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA, Birch Bark or salicylic acid) are applied to the skin and left on for a period of time or layers added to deepen the effects. In this treatment, the top layer of the skin is peeled off in order to smooth the skin and provide benefits such as fading lines and scars. Chemical peels have a gel-like consistency and are applied on the face. Peels can be used in other parts of the body, but the face is the most common area where it is used.

After the chemical is applied, the provider conditions the skin with finishing products and an SPF is applied. The purpose of using a chemical peel is to remove dull skin cells, which leads to improvement in fine lines, discoloration, acne, and more.

Now, that you understand what chemical peel is, let us take look at the benefits of getting a chemical peel. There are 4 major benefits you can get when you receive a Chemical Peel by Aviva Woman in Salt Lake City:

1. Helps Exfoliate Skin & Makes It Smoother

The most common reason why people go for a chemical peel is that they want smoother skin with an even tone and texture. Chemical peels will leave your skin silkier and toned and allow your skin to absorb skin-care products better because the layer of dead cells is removed from the skin’s surface.

2. Minimizes Sun Damage and Hyperpigmentation

A mild chemical peel is used to treat dark spots, sun spots, and pigmentation problems that age the skin. Peels can also remove blotchiness and fine lines, which are caused by long exposure in the sun, making skin look younger. Additionally, according to recent research, it is found that chemical peels can help improve hormonal melasma, which is a type of hyperpigmentation disorder and is often resistant to treatments.

3. Reduces Acne Marks and Blemishes

Certain types of chemical peels help in controlling acne breakouts and reduce scars caused by past blemishes. They do this by skimming the surface of the skin, unclogging the pores, removing the blackheads, and depositing ingredients that help in fading pimple marks.

4. Softens Fine Lines

A chemical peel is also used on the face to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth, eyes, and forehead. A basic-peel is enough to soften the lines, while a medical grade peel is best for deeper wrinkles.
