Best Reasons to Consider a Chemical Peel

Sun damage, wrinkles, discoloration, scarring, and other issues can add years to your appearance and negatively impact your skin’s tone and texture. If your at-home skincare routine isn’t resolving your concerns effectively, you may be researching other cosmetic solutions. But with so many available options, how do you decide what’s best for you?

Chemical peels are one of the most sought-after ways to discover softer, smoother, younger-looking skin. Exfoliating the top layers of dull, dead skin cells with a combination of medical-grade chemicals stimulates your body’s healing response for enhanced collagen production.

Here are the top four reasons to consider a chemical peel with Dr. Yula Indeyeva.

1. Versatility

A chemical peel is not a one-size-fits-all solution. After evaluating your skin’s quality, learning about your lifestyle, and listening to the challenges you wish to address, Dr. Indeyeva can recommend a formulation tailored to your unique needs. Our gentlest chemical peels are for superficial problems, while moderate to deep peels are best for people with a more advanced degree of aging or patients looking to resolve multiple issues simultaneously.

If your concerns are mild and you don’t want downtime, you may be a good candidate for a series of light or medium chemical peels. Deep peels provide dramatic results after only one treatment, but they are also more intense and require a correspondingly longer recovery period. 

2. Gradual, Long-Lasting Results

Though you may notice an improvement in your skin’s appearance and quality soon after your peel, that is only the beginning. Removing the top layers of skin tells your body it is time to heal the treated area by replacing valuable collagen and hyaluronic acid – natural substances that support and nourish from within. As your skin cell turnover rate increases, it will gradually give you a healthy, glowing complexion. This subtle reveal is ideal for people who want beautiful results without surgery.

3. Effective Against Acne

Acne breakouts and their resulting scars can be one of the most frustrating skin flaws to have, especially when they persist past adolescence. A chemical peel is one of the best acne treatments because it will clear away the dead skin cells, excess oil, and dirt that get trapped in your pores and fuel acne flare-ups. More aggressive peels can even reduce the depth and appearance of acne scars caused by long-ago outbreaks. 

4. A Minimally Invasive Approach

Without anesthesia risks, incisions, or sutures, Dr. Indeyeva can reverse years of cumulative sun damage, like discoloration and freckles. A chemical peel can also smooth rough, leathery skin and minimize wrinkles for non-surgical rejuvenation.
