Facial Peels Benefits!
It’s like a magical treatment that can cure-all.
The term ‘face peels’ might make you back away slowly, but this treatment can help with a plethora of problems.
A peel is an anti-aging treatment with a host of benefits that include exfoliation, but it also builds collagen, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, boosts radiance, shrinks pore size, diminishes dark spots, clears the complexion, and can even help with rosacea.
“Turns out good old chemical peels can actually deliver certain skin benefits—
Peels can make your skin—and skin-care products—work better. In minutes, acids lift away dead cells and trigger a lovely chain reaction: “As that topmost layer is shed, signals are sent to the living cells below to multiply and move up, to increase collagen production, to make more hyaluronic acid—to act younger. A thorough sloughing also offers one very immediate upshot: smoother skin that’s both more radiant and more receptive. “Your skin-care products perform better after a peel because there are no dead cells impeding their penetration.
They’re low-risk, and you can go custom. There are chemical peels that are safe to use on every skin color without risk of hyperpigmentation (usually a worry with darker complexions). “We now know that using low percentages of multiple acids gives a better outcome with less irritation than a single acid at a higher strength. Skincare experts now have plenty of premixed cocktails to choose from, like PCA Skin Sensi Peel, which mixes trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and lactic acid to rev up collagen synthesis deep down and dissolve the drab skin on top. For tenacious brown spots, layering a pinch of brightening vitamin C or a smidgen of bleaching hydroquinone to boost the effectiveness of the peel.
AHA and BHA Face Peels
Alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy acids, these peels include glycolic acid, lactic acid, mandelic and salicylic acid, all known to be quite light, so can be performed without needing any downtime. BHA is especially good for combatting acne or oily skin issues because they break down the bonds that hold dead skin cells together, allowing for easier exfoliation. AHA help diminish the look of visible lines and wrinkles. A lot of the modern-day ones use fruit enzymes and acids from natural sources such as pumpkins, as well as active ingredients to penetrate and deliver anti-oxidants and vitamins deep into the skin encouraging the new cells to grow stronger and healthier.
