Chemical peels are an effective way to exfoliate the skin. They help rejuvenate the face by peeling off dead layers of skin and revealing the healthy layers underneath. Chemical peels are popular for the fact that they are safe, quick, and effective.
What helps chemical peels heal faster?
After a chemical peel, your skin may feel more sensitive than usual. This can mean making a change to your normal skincare routine to accommodate for the extra sensitivity. A chemical peel offers intense exfoliation so replenishing hydration to the skin afterward is a must. When attaining a post-procedure moisturizer, the most important thing to look out for is occlusive ingredients, which are designed to prevent the loss of moisture. Preventing loss of moisture in the skin allows natural oils to nourish and repair. The face creams you use should contain hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and properties that strengthen the skin barrier such as peptides.
Due to the strength of the solution used, the healing time for Med Spa-administered chemical peels differs greatly from at-home peels. In-office procedures are used with stronger concentrations and penetrate deeper into the skin, thus revealing greater results. One of the major benefits is being able to see the results almost instantaneously. Immediately, younger skins underneath the top dead layer are revealed. Long-term, cellular turnover in the skin is increased, which promotes clearer, healthier skin to regenerate in its place.
How long do chemical peels take to heal?
Whether it’s acne scarring, dark spots, or uneven skin texture, chemical peels are a great way to treat unwanted blemishes and spots and reveal a new, healthy layer of skin to refresh your appearance. As with any procedure, there is a period of recovery.
When determining recovery time, we need to look at the strength of the peel solution. How deep a peel penetrates the skin categorizes its strength. The three basic categories are deep, mid, and superficial.
Superficial peels are most common and effectively address a number of skin concerns and as a bonus have the lowest recovery time. The skin peels for just a few days after the treatment and the peeling process typically starts 1-2 days after the procedure. The downtime can extend for weeks when it comes to mid and deep peels. During this time, avoiding the sun is crucial, but if you absolutely can’t you will want to wear a highly effective sunscreen and protective sun gear, like a wide-brimmed hat.
Which is better, microneedling or chemical peels?
These two procedures are typically used to achieve different benefits and advantages, although the results are similar in comparison. Both treatments give your skin a fresher, healthier look while simultaneously reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
During a chemical peel, the chemical solutions are applied to the face for a short period of time. The reaction with the skin causes peeling to take place over the next couple of days. The biggest advantages of chemical peels is that they reverse sun damage, help fight the signs of aging, and correct pigmentation problems.
Microneedling involves the use of a pen with many microneedles rolling across the surface of the facial skin. The needles penetrate into the deeper layers of skin. The body’s own natural healing responses are stimulated by these tiny punctures, which in turn stimulates collagen production in the skin. A benefit of microneedling is that it’s suitable for all skin types.
