The history of chemical peels as an anti-wrinkle and anti-aging skin treatment can be rooted back to ancient times. Chemical peel skin treatments are one of the oldest skin treatments ever documented.
Today, chemical peels are highly refined and safer than ever! Thousands of skin cells die on a daily basis. Some of those cells flake off and are replaced with new skin cells. Chemical peels essentially speed up this process. The chemical peel solution is applied to the skin surface to loosen and effectively cause the targeted outer layer to eventually peel off. The underlying new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin which also stimulates considerable renewal and collagen growth in the deeper layers of the skin.
The medical-grade chemical peels are classified into 3 classifications – mild, medium, and deep treatments. Mild chemical peels target mainly superficial skin flaws such as fine lines and wrinkles and very mild acne scars, while deep chemical peels target more severe problems such as deep wrinkles, age spots, and severe acne scarring. Salicylic peels can treat active acne. Chemical peels are effective on most skin types and treat an array of problems.
There are many chemical peel options and treatments available today. All of the chemical peels at Timeless Elements Med Spa and Laser Center are medical-grade peels and can only be applied by a trained professional in a medical facility. A salon-grade peel will not be as strong or as effective as a medical-grade peel and often cost as much as a medical-grade peel. Unfortunately, many customers are disappointed with the results of a salon-grade peel and are unaware of the medical-grade peel that has much better results.
The medical skin care professionals at Timeless Elements Med Spa and Laser Center are trained to offer the appropriate chemical peels that will meet your personal treatment needs. They will also recommend a home care program to enable you to meet your goals for your skin.
