4 Real Benefits of a Medical Grade Chemical Peel

Medical grade chemical peels are a long-standing & highly trusted method for dramatically improving the skin’s health and appearance. Performed by a medical aesthetic professional, the procedure can treat a multitude of skin issues including discoloration, signs of aging, acne, and superficial scarring. The procedure is custom formulated depending on the patient’s skin needs, and can be done in one or multiple peel sessions. Medical grade chemical peels are very low risk, and have many proven benefits.

Combat Hyperpigmentation

Medical grade chemical peels are miracle workers for hyperpigmented skin. Hyperpigmentation could mean you have red blotches that won’t go away. It could also look like darker or brown colored age spots or sunspots, or lightened pigmentation. Another form of discoloration is dark under eye circles. Medical grade chemical peels can reverse all of these issues with skin tone and give you a brighter, more even complexion. They can even go beyond the face and treat skin pigmentation issues on the chest, arms, and legs.

Reduce Fine Lines

Once treated by a medical grade chemical peel, the top layer of skin that was dead & dull is removed to reveal a fresher & less damaged layer of cells. This new layer of skin will not have the depth of lines & wrinkles as the previously visible cells. Medical grade chemical peels also work to promote collagen production in these new layers of skin. This not only brightens the skin, but promotes a smoother & more youthful glow.

Improve Acne

One of the great things about medical grade chemical peels is that they are customized by your medical aesthetics professional depending on your skin’s needs. Your peel can be specially formulated to treat those annoying acne bumps and promote clearer skin on the new cell layer. Talk to your skin specialist about a peel including salicylic acid and glycolic acid, both of which are shown in many cases to effectively eliminate surface acne.

Make Your At-Home Routine More Effective

After a medical-grade chemical peel, you will not only be left with smoother skin, but a fresher & smoother layer of undamaged skin cells. These new cells will better absorb the products you use on a daily basis, including cleansers, moisturizers, retinols, and serums. Your smoother skin texture will also allow for a more even application of makeup & foundation!
