The Truth About Chemical Peels
Everything You Need To Know Before Your First Treatment
Chemical peels are an essential part of skin health. As an effective treatment option for most skin types and concerns, they improve tone, texture, fine lines and wrinkles, breakouts, and dark spots, but many people are intimidated to go in for their first peel treatment. The fear of leaving with a bright red face that hurts prevents some from experiencing the many benefits. The post-peel reality
is a glowing, healthy complexion. Here's everything you need to know before your first SKIN chemical peel: Peeling is exfoliation. When your skin peels or flakes after treatment, your skin is shedding dead or damaged surface cells and revealing new, healthy skin cells on the surface. This action is called cell turnover. Supporting the cell turnover process with chemical peels allows the skin to shed dead cells and bring a new, fresh coat to the surface, free of signs of aging, sun damage, dirt, and debris.
The result is glowing skin. You won't necessarily experience visible peeling. That doesn't mean your treatment was ineffective. Everyone shares different peeling levels, dependent upon skin type, resilience, type of peel, and the number of layers applied. Some people experience 'sheeting,' when large portions of the skin peel off at once. Some patients experience 'flaking,' when small pieces of skin peel off, similar to dry, winter skin, or mild peeling after a sunburn. Others experience exfoliation that is not visible. If you don't peel, your skin is still exfoliating. In this case, the exfoliation is happening on a cellular level that can't be seen by the naked eye. Typically, the deeper the peel you receive, the more extensive peeling you will experience.
The VI Peel® is a gentle yet highly successful form of chemical peels that can be used to improve the appearance of facial skin, even in those areas where the skin is thinner and particularly delicate. In addition to removing the damaged, top layer of skin, the VI Peel® also stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin – two substances which are vital for healthy skin growth. Our body’s ability to produce these fades as we become older, so by re-stimulating their production, we can ensure that new skin growth is healthier, stronger, supple and more youthful in appearance.
