What is a Chemical Peel?

To someone who may not know, the name chemical peel may conjure images of some painful and dangerous procedure; but a chemical peel is nothing more than a simple treatment to improve the appearance of skin. The most prominent areas to treat are in the face, neck, and hands. The treatment itself is a chemical solution—Central Wellness has a variety of different peels and an experienced medical staff who are all trained to apply the peels—which, when applied to the skin, causes the skin to exfoliate and then peel off. The skin beneath is usually smoother and less wrinkled.

Who Benefits from a Chemical Peel?

A Chemical Peel Treatment is effective for a number of different reasons ranging from everyday aesthetics—skin hydration and brightening—to the treatment of aged and or damaged skin. A chemical peel is even a treatment for acne. The acne treatment is a peel made of a powerful non-blended Beta Hydroxy Acne Skin Treatment. Other treatments include a skin hydration and skin brightening peel as well as a peel that treats the effects of aging and even treats sun damaged skin. Skin conditions treated by a chemical peel include: crow’s feet, scarred skin, sun damaged skin, sagging skin, wrinkles, and acne and acne scars.

What Happens During a Chemical Peel?

It may sound overly painful to have the outermost layer of skin removed, but in most cases, it’s not an overly painful skin treatment. Some of the peels are entirely gentle by nature. Some require little to no skin peeling at all, and merely rejuvenate the skin. Some peels may cause a brief redness or stinging sensation, but the skin will soon adjust to the peel and these effects will abate quickly. Some of the more intense types of peels will come with more redness and skin irritation, but remember that these types of peels are more intense because it’s necessary to treat the damaged skin. Any side-effects, even from the most intense peels, will lessen and eventually go away in time.
