Body Chemical Peel
As time progresses, our skin starts to change in a variety of ways. With age, along with many other elements like overexposure to sunlight, alcohol consumption and smoking, skin can become stretched, discolored, rough and dry. Although this is a natural part of life and the aging process, it doesn’t make it any easier to live with.
While chemical peels are most commonly performed on the face, they can actually be applied to various areas of the body, such as the chest, back, neck, hands and feet. Our body chemical peels can be performed as a natural combatant to time, restoring a refreshed look to the skin. Our body peels are also very effective for treating acne and oily skin on the body. Ideal for athletes and those wanting to improve the skin-damaging effects of the sun, body peels work to unclog pores, lift blackheads, even skin tone, minimize discoloration and prevent future breakouts.
What is a Body Chemical Peel?
Chemical peeling is the process in which skin is brushed up with a clinically formulated topical solution. A chemical peel consists of one or two chemical solutions, which are available in a range of strengths. The acids in the peel work by dissolving the outermost layers of the skin. This in effect creates a controlled wound that stimulates the body’s natural regeneration process. The acids in the peel chemically loosen the “glue” that binds the damaged and dead cells, triggering a natural exfoliation process wherein older cells are sloughed off and newer, healthier cells emerge.
A body chemical peel can provide full-body skin rejuvenation – evening out skin pigmentation, diminishing visible signs of sun damage and improving the skin’s texture. A body chemical peel can also help minimize the appearance of stretch marks. Another common reason for applying chemical peels to areas like the back and shoulders is to help diminish the appearance of acne and acne scars.
