Chemical peels are a popular cosmetic treatment that has been around for a long time. The idea is that the chemicals remove a layer of old, dull skin to reveal the newer, brighter layer beneath. This means a simple way to boost the appearance of skin.
Clients will often come in for a chemical peel when they feel that their skin has lost its glow. The best results tend to occur when users come in for a series of treatments. This gradual approach limits any risks, side-effects and downtime after the procedure.
Should I use a salon peel or an at-home chemical peel?
At-home peels are appealing because of the user-friendly nature and lower cost. However, it is likely that the product you choose isn’t as strong as a salon. You can also be sure of a professional application and service here.
What are these issues of side-effects and downtime?
Those that have one strong peel in one session may experience excessive peeling and flaking as the top layer of skin is removed. They will have to rest and let side-effects diminish before going about their day.
Results can vary depending on the type of peel and the intensity of the chemical. But, most users experience radiant, smoother skin. Some also see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Talk to your technician to learn more.
