Chemical peels are anything but new to the aesthetic beauty industry. However, there are a few things about the procedure that you may not already know!
Chemical Peels Have Been a Beauty Secret for Centuries
Many believe that the use of chemical peels dates all the way back to ancient Egypt, when Egyptians applied animal oils, salt, alabaster and sour milk to the face to achieve a better complexion. It seems our ancient ancestors discovered a skincare secret. While the Egyptians used sour milk, we now use lactic acid and alpha-hydroxy acid, which are both ingredients derived from sour milk and still used in skincare procedures today.
Chemical Peels Continue to Improve
Chemical peels have not only come a long way since the days of the Egyptians, but they’ve also come a long way in the past 10 years. Like many aesthetic treatments, chemical peels have continued to advance as we learn more about our skin. Not long ago, chemical peels were associated with prolonged downtime, extreme peeling and an arduous recovery period. Fortunately, chemical peels have become ever gentler and can now be customized to meet your skin’s unique needs.
At Midsota MedSpa, we perform a number of peels that can be customized to meet your unique skin needs. These chemical peels are specially formulated with potent concentrations of high level active ingredients. Popular peels by Glytone include the TCA-LP Peel, Mandelic Peel, Salicylic Acid Peel. Each of these peels enables us to achieve subtle skin transformations. Many patients choose our VivierSkin® Peel to help them achieve their skin goals. When needed, we can perform more aggressive peel like including Glytone’s Pyruvic Peel. We can also perform chemical peels on the chest and hands.
Chemical Peels Transform the Skin
By providing exfoliation to our outermost layer of skin (the epidermis), chemical peels encourage skin cell rejuvenation and collagen production deep within the skin. Chemical peels have many positive effects. They:
- Diminish fine lines and wrinkles for anti-aging benefits
- Help with skin laxity by tightening the skin
- Fade sun damage including hyperpigmentation, sun spots and uneven skin tone and texture
- Improve acne and residual acne scarring
- Prep the skin for better efficacy for skincare
