3 Amazing Benefits of Chemical Peels

For those who want to know about chemical peel benefits for the skin, our Boston-area team at Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics can explain everything you need to know about the popular skin rejuvenation treatment.

During a chemical peel, a specialized solution is applied to the skin as a way of removing the outer layers and encouraging renewed skin cell turnover. Chemical peels are restorative cosmetic treatments that help to enhance the appearance of your skin on the face, neck, and hands, but the exact results you can get from the treatment vary depending on several factors, including the severity of your skin issues and the type of peel you get.

Here are five of the main benefits of chemical peels you should know about:

1. Managing Acne 

Chemical peels can reduce the frequency and severity of acne breakouts. Acne is a condition that occurs when the pores in your skin are blocked. Sebaceous glands produce too much of an oily substance called sebum, which combines with dead skin cells to clog the pores. Bacteria on the skin can also become trapped, multiplying in the follicle and causing inflammation and worse. A chemical peel can break down plugged hair follicles or pores, reduce oil production, kill bacteria, decrease inflammation, and allow skin-nourishing topical products to be absorbed more easily. 

2. Addressing Signs of Aging 

As you age, your skin loses its elasticity and becomes thinner. That makes it more prone to developing wrinkles. Chemical peels reduce many signs of aging, including wrinkles and fine lines, as well as uneven skin tone, roughness, dryness, and other texture problems. Chemical peels also promote the growth of new skin along with collagen and elastin production. 

3. Reduce Pigment Issues 

Hyperpigmentation occurs due to an increase in melanin, which is the pigment that gives skin its color. In addition to correcting other cosmetic skin problems, chemical peels are ideal for addressing pigmentation irregularities on the skin like spots and other types of hyperpigmentation. The treatment can improve uneven skin tone, redness due to melasma, freckles, and discoloration from sun damage.
