Today, there are various products and treatments that you could use in order to reduce skin abnormalities such as fine lines and wrinkles. One treatment that we recommend is in the form of chemical peels.

Chemical peels are a tried and true cosmetic treatment plan by dermatologists that offer favorable results to help make skin elastic and smooth. There are many locations for chemical peel Salt Lake City has to offer, so be sure to call for a consultation if you are interested in enjoying strong, smooth skin. Chemical peels are easy to tolerate and no surgery is required, which are other reasons why this new treatment is increasing in popularity.

How Are Chemical Peels Safe?

You might be conditioned to think that anything with “chemical” in its name must be harmful, toxic, or unsafe to use. But so long as you have a professional apply your chemical peels, you should have nothing to worry about. One you come in for a consultation, you will discuss your health history with your specialist. This is so that the specialist can choose an alternative peel so that any possible problems or side effects will be avoided. If you aren’t a viable candidate for chemical peel, then your provider will recommend another treatment for skin elasticity and wrinkle reduction.

If you are a candidate for chemical peels, they should only be applied by a professional and not by yourself at home. This is because they use chemical peels that are certified safe to use. Ordering chemical peels online are only to be done at your own risk. When you get your peels, you may feel a faint tingling sensation or minor discomfort, but that’s about it.

What Do Chemical Peels Contain?

Among the ingredients inside chemical peels, there is lactic acid, retinoic acid, resorcinol, trichloroacetic acid, glycolic acid, hydroquinone, salicylic acid, and mandelic acid. Many of these ingredients can also be found in skin care products such as lotions, balms, and creams. However, the difference is that chemical peels are stronger, thus work more effectively, meaning you should expect longer-lasting results and far less time getting to them.

How Do Chemical Peels Work?

Chemical peels work topically, meaning they go on the skin. In addition to reducing wrinkles, they also can help treat the effects of sagging skin, sunspots, liver spots, and scars.

Once you show up to get chemical peels, your specialist will first clean your face or other area of the body desired to be treated. Once the skin is prepped the peel is applied and sits on the skin for a specific period of time or may be applied in a series of layers. After a while on your skin, the chemical peels will work their ingredients in. Afterwards, the specialist will remove the peels and clean your face of any residue.

What Happens After My Treatment?

Chemical peels will work over time after your procedure has been completed. The skin that has been treated may begin to flake and shed. This will result in new skin being exposed and it will feel younger than before. You might also feel a burning pain that feels and looks like a sunburn, but your skin will also get past this phase resulting in soft, smooth, and youthful skin once again.
