The Benefits of Chemical Peels
By Sheryl Pilcher on January 08, 2018
Our San Antonio, TX plastic surgery center has helped countless people look younger and more vibrant. The thing is, surgery is not always the answer. We offer a wide array of non-surgical cosmetic skin treatments that are perfect for blemishes, texture issues, and other signs of age-related skin damage.
Chemical peels are among the most popular of these skin care treatments. These specially formulated peels can erase many signs of aging. Let’s briefly consider the benefits of chemical peels for patients below.
Different Types of Peels for Your Needs
One of the many advantages of chemical peels comes from the sheer variety of peels that are available. There are three kinds of peels that work at different levels of the skin:
- Light chemical peels
- Medium chemical peels
- Deep chemical peels
During the consultation process, we can determine what kind of peel is right for you and your needs.
Designed to Rejuvenate the Skin
Chemical peels are designed to rejuvenate the skin in many ways, While facial plastic surgery can smooth out wrinkles and prevent sagging, chemical peels affect the actual quality and appearance of the skin itself, which can be crucial for finer aesthetic issues that facial surgery simply isn't capable of correcting.
Improved Skin Texture
Acne scars, bumps, dry or rough skin, and other kinds of problems with skin texture can be effectively addressed thanks to chemical peels. Smooth skin that looks healthy and supple can be yours thanks to chemical peel treatment.
Better Overall Skin Pigment and Tone
Blotchiness and problems with uneven skin pigment or skin tone can be easily evened out thanks to chemical peel treatment. Even a light peel can work wonders for people who have problems with uneven skin tone or years of problems caused by sun damage. Chemical peels can give your skin a healthy glow it’s been lacking.
Great for Different Lines and Facial Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles might be to small for facial plastic surgery procedures to treat. Chemical peels are excellent for these fine lines and the problems they cause. With deeper peels, much bigger and deeper wrinkles can be effectively addressed and eliminated.
No Incisions Necessary for Treatment
Since chemical peels are applied topically, there is no need for any incisions to be made. That’s great since there is no scarring from the need for incisions, and fewer issues with infection and other problems associated with surgery.
Not as Risky as Surgical Anti-Aging Procedures
Less invasive means fewer risks and much less severe complications from treatment. With chemical peels, there may be some risks to consider that can affect the outcomes of treatment, but they can be handled easily by following pre-op and post-op instructions carefully. The more serious complications associated with plastic surgery simply do not apply here.
Excellent Long-Term Anti-Aging Results
Chemical peels are able to achieve some fantastic long-term results. Patients look younger and more refreshed thanks to chemical peel treatment, allowing them to go about their day feeling great about their appearance. This added confidence can work wonders for your social life and your career.
