Why chemical peels are the secret to beautiful skin

Chemical peels are often talked about as a pinnacle of cosmetic treatments for skin care, and with good reason! Chemical peels are an effective way to achieve a radiant glow for your complexion. Read on to discover why skin peels are well worth the investment.

How do chemical peels work?

A chemical peel is a chemical solution that is applied to the face. The solution exfoliates the skin and gently peels it off.  The ‘new’ skin underneath will be visibly brighter and smoother than before. This process produces a combination of desirable results.

Goodbye Acne!

Although commonly associated with puberty, there has been a huge rise in adults seeking acne treatment in the past few years. In fact, one study found that acne now affects 9.4% of the worlds’ population! Luckily, skin peels can be an effective acne treatment. Chemical peels with salicylic acid can not only help prevent breakouts, it also minimises the appearance of acne scars.

Wrinkle treatment for aging skin

Sadly, aging eventually affects us all. But skin peels are an excellent wrinkle treatment, as they stimulate the collagen production of your skin. This extra collagen plumps up your skin and helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Make your skin (and skin-care routine) work harder!

Not only will chemical peels increase the level of collagen in your skin, it will also produce more hyaluronic acid (the core ingredient for dermal fillers!).  This will soften and smooth the surface texture of your skin. As an added bonus, your skin care products will also perform better after the skin cells have been exfoliated from your face, resulting in a fresh complexion for longer!
