Signs of Aging
Chemical peels can target a lot of the skin-related issues usually associated with aging. Most common among these are fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, which can be reduced due to the skin producing collagen and elastin after a chemical peel. Skin after a peel is also often smoother which can help with dryness and rough patches.
Improving the Appearance of Your Skin
The procedure can also help to beautify your skin by improving your complexion and helping with uneven skin tones. It may even assist in reducing the appearance of scars and skin discoloration caused by overexposure to the sun.
Although your doctor may suggest other treatments to tackle your acne symptoms, a chemical peel can help with the condition by exfoliating your skin at the top layer.
Acne scars, which result as your body heals from acne inflammation, can also be treated and their appearance minimized with chemical peels.
Rosacea is a skin condition that can cause redness and swelling, and sometimes breakouts that have the appearance of acne. Its symptoms may be relieved by the application of chemical peels, but may not be recommended for more severe types of rosacea.
