There is one thing that men and women of all ages have in common: no matter how old we are, we want our skin to look it’s very best. Few cosmetic treatments are as effective for 20-year-olds as they are for those in their 50s—however, there is a miracle-like treatment at Midsota MedSpa that is as effective for millennials and baby boomers alike—the chemical peel.
Fight Acne in Your 20s
Acne and acne scarring are common concerns for many of our younger patients here in Minnesota. Fortunately, chemical peels are an effective, affordable, and accessible treatment to combat break-outs, blemishes, redness, and residual scarring. As the name suggests, chemical peels take advantage of a unique chemical exfoliation that thoroughly cleanses the skin and gets deep into the epidermis to unclog pores. The appearance of acne scarring can also be improved with chemical peels.
Some peels are specially formulated with powerful acne-fighting ingredients such as salicylic acid, lactic acid, and resorcinol. Glytone’s Mandelic and Salicylic Acid Peels and the Vivier Skin Peel are all popular choices for fighting acne and do not require any downtime—making these peels the perfect treatments for busy young men and women on the go.
Delay Premature Aging in Your 30s
Premature aging manifests differently for everyone. Part of the appeal of chemical peels is that they are a customizable treatment and can be specially formulated to meet your unique skin needs. A peel like Glytone’s Pyruvic Peel causes the skin to naturally repair and renew itself while simultaneously encouraging collagen production that helps to naturally fill in fine lines and wrinkles. Chemical peels help to refine both skin texture and tone—leaving you with a fresh and healthy skin complexion that looks more radiant and more youthful.
Fade Sun Damage in your 40s & Beyond
Chemical peels are safe to use on all skin colors without the risk of hyperpigmentation (which can be an issue for darker complexions). Chemical peels are able to fade the signs of sun damage by stimulating the outermost layer of the skin to shed and peel away. As new skin cells come to the surface, they are able to take the place of the old, sun-damaged, and weathered cells and help improve the appearance of uneven pigmentation, melasma, and brown spots—all of which are symptoms of sun-damaged skin. Many peels, like Glytone’s Pyruvic Peel, can also be used on more delicate areas like around the eyes and lips as well as treat pre-mature aging on the hands. Glytone’s TCA-LP Peel and Hand Peel are even specifically formulated to treat sun damaged areas other than the face.
