Chemical peels are a great way to help reduce the signs of aging. Things such as these can benefit from chemical peels:
This is an outpatient procedure that will cause a bit of a burning sensation that will last five to ten minutes which will be followed up by a stinging sensation. Before the peel, you should clean your skin thoroughly. The different types of peels are applied to small areas of the skin which will cause a controlled wound that lets new skin take its place.
Typically those with fair skin and light hair are good candidates for chemical peels as the skin will react best. However, there are treatment options for those that have a darker complexion but it may leave you with a bit of uneven completion.
This is a minor trade-off in some cases.
Severe skin wrinkles, sags, and bulges do not respond well to chemical peels. These types of skin situations will need a facelift, brow lift, eyelid lift laser resurfacing, or soft tissue filler such as college or fat.
