Have you ever considered having a facial chemical peel done to fight off the effects and appearance of aging or some other skin blemishes or defects like acne? This article will discuss what a facial chemical peel is and some of the options one has when pursuing this therapy, because there are several. Being informed of these options will make it easier on you when it comes time to make your choices and decisions among them.
Age sure isn’t forgiving for anyone. Whether it’s a beauty queen or a country bumpkin, time will really leave some pretty nasty marks on anyone’s face: wrinkles, blemishes, and inexplicably strange marks will take their toll on anyone’s beautiful face. Guess that there’s nothing you can do about it. You’ve just got to accept that your age is going to show in your face.
You may not be able to do anything about aging, but you sure can do something about its effects; especially on your face. You can still keep that alluring gaze, that charming smile and that radiantly beautiful glow that you have right now. You don’t have to impotently accept the effects of time on your face and body. Modern medicine and cosmetology has opened the door to several great skin care therapies that can help the average person take matters into their own hands so to speak and have much greater control over time’s effect on their appearance.
That’s where facial chemical peels come into the picture. No, it doesn’t involve anything as brutal as slapping on another person’s face unto yours and gluing it with chemicals. A facial chemical peel is all about gently stripping away the top layers of your face’s skin in order for it to grow a newer, healthier layer of skin. It’s like pruning a plant: you cut off the dead and dying leaves so that fresh and new leaves can grow. Except that instead of growing abundant leaves, you’ll be cultivating the beauty that you should rightfully possess. You just need to sit back, relax, and wait for your face’s skin cells to grow back. Once they’ve regenerated, you’ll see the fruits of your labor: a refreshing new look.
Wrinkling, dryness, acne scars, irregular skin pigmentation, blemishes and even warts are just some facial problems that you need to ‘prune’ to preserve your beauty. Facial chemical peels help take care of all these problems, leaving you worry free about how to deal with them. However, the intensity of your facial problems requires varying degrees of chemical peel intensity. Would you use a painter’s brush to paint your house? Now would you use a roller to paint a thin strip of wood? Of course not, you always want to use the proper tool for the proper job.
First, you have the light facial chemical peels. This classification of chemical peels are the chemical-peel ‘lite’ of the family, meaning that it’s enough to repair light wrinkling, dryness, and slightly irregular textures of the skin. And because the chemicals are light, the side effects of the chemicals are also light. You can often find these lighter versions in an at home chemical peel version so you don’t need to go into a dermatologist’s office. You’ll be able to be up and running in no time at all.
Then you have the medium facial chemical peels. They’re the ‘regular sodas’ of the family, meaning that they’ll do a more intense job without you having to go through a whole barrel of side-effects. These side-effects may take a few days to a few weeks to heal completely. Rest assured: with proper care and time, they’ll eventually go away. What are a few days compared to the beauty you’ll get back?
And finally, you have the deep facial chemical peels. These are the heavy-duty ‘red bulls’ of the family. They’ll be able to strip away any problems you’ve got; boldly defying anything that Mother Nature can throw your way. But there are heavy-duty side-effects that accompany these heavy-duty benefits. You’ve got to be prepared to take good care of your face and spend a lot of time in the healing process. You will need to plan to stay indoors for at least a few days as well as expect to use a regimen of specialized skincare products to help your skin stay free of impurities and irritants during the extended healing time required for a deep peel.
There’s a saying: “no one can defy the effects of aging.” Now that you know what a chemical facial peel has to offer, wouldn’t you like to try your hand at proving them wrong?
