Facial Chemical Peels | Riviera Spa Dallas
What is A Chemical Peel?
At its very essence, there is nothing to worry about. The chemicals are not exactly harsh industrial chemicals. They are a combination of natural acids and collagen as well as other chemicals which can be used safely on facial skin without doing anything more than giving it a thorough exfoliation and cleansing.
The peels do this by lifting the dead skin cell layer off the face. This reveals smoother, younger and newer skin underneath it.
Chemical peels contain acids like alpha-hydroxy, lactic acid, salicylic acid, or glycolic acid. These will help the top layers of the skin peel off naturally. It is not painful, and the skin underneath grows in a healthier, smoother and more perfect way.
The Benefits and Effects of A Chemical Face Peel
If you have dark spots, wrinkles, skin discoloration, acne scars or other imperfections, a face peel can improve them drastically.
You can get a light peel which contains a mild acid like alpha-hydroxy. This will lift off just the outer layer of the skin. It is good for dry, rough skin or for some skin discolorations.
A medium peel is stronger and contains something called TCA. This will get into the top and middle layers of the skin. This can benefit you if you have age spots, wrinkles or even freckles. If you have actinic keratosis, this type of peel can improve the appearance of the growths on your skin.
A deep peel also contains TCA or phenol. These get down deep to the middle layers of skin and eliminate damaged skin cells. This type of treatment improves lines, scars and age spots. Because it is so strong it is only to be used once.
Your skin will also benefit by growing back with much more smoothness, hydration, and brightness. For anyone who is troubled by signs of aging, the biggest benefit of a peel is looking years younger afterward!
Always have a professional dermatologist examine your skin before you do a peel for the first time. It is not good for anyone who is pregnant or nursing or anyone who has taken the drug Accutane. It is also not good for rosacea, dermatitis, or eczema. It is required to discontinue any products containing retinol three days prior to your chemical peel.
