Chemical peels have only become more popular in recent years, but many patients have misconceptions about chemical peels and whether they belong in a regular skincare regimen. The reality? There are many different types of chemical peels, plenty of which you can get on a regular basis. Below, we’ll take a closer look at the benefits of routine chemical peels and how they can be leveraged to help you achieve your skincare goals here at SkinPerfected.

What Is a Chemical Peel?

As their name suggests, a chemical peel is a procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the surface of the skin in order to exfoliate the surface of the skin and reveal healthier skin underneath. Some chemical peels reach deep and achieve transformative, long-lasting results. Others are very light and can simply provide deeper exfoliation than you might be able to achieve at home. Chemical peels typically use active ingredients like glycolic acid, TCA, or Jessner’s solution and can be customized to your unique skin type.

What are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?

So, why should you consider routine chemical peels? Here are some of the biggest benefits you can expect when you start to make chemical peels a regular skincare procedure.

Regular Exfoliation

Routine chemical peels exfoliate the skin and remove dead cells quite effectively, addressing every area evenly. Manual exfoliation with scrubs or devices can be uneven, even coming with the risk of damage to the skin. And with regular exfoliation, you can keep away buildup that contributes to texture or dryness. Chemical peels ensure your skin looks vibrant and healthy regularly, giving you the complexion that you’re looking for.

Better Skin Tone

One of the biggest skincare issues patients hope to address is uneven skin tone. From sun damage to scars and beyond, there are numerous ways the face can have uneven pigmentation. Chemical peels can be specifically tailored to evening skin tone and brightening areas of pigmentation – doing this regularly can help stave off sun damage or deeper set pigmentation issues.

Healthier Skin

It might seem counterintuitive, but routine chemical peels actually serve to strengthen your skin, not break it down. This is achieved by promoting circulation and collagen production. Doing this regularly can combat oxidative stress we experience on a day-to-day basis, leading to healthier skin over time. 

Fewer Breakouts

Chemical peels reduce breakouts with continuous use, but they don’t just stop there. The regular removal of blackheads and other debris that clogs pores means fewer breakouts, helping you not only address past skin issues (such as acne scars) but prevent future ones as well.

Enhanced Product Absorption

By removing the layer of dead and damaged skin cells from the skin’s surface, your products can more easily reach the healthy skin cells underneath. If you’ve noticed that your skincare routine isn’t as efficient as it should be, a regular chemical peel might make a world of difference.
