For those who spend a fair amount of time in the sun, they will eventually get sun damaged skin. Sun damage to the skin can leave behind sun spots, dull texture, and enhance fine lines and wrinkles. Sun spots can appear as brown spots on the face. When you want to improve your facial skin, you can seek a chemical peel. Chemical peels can help remove the suns effects on the skin. Skin & Body Refinery will share more about the benefits of chemical peels and how they can reverse the suns damage to your skin.
Is a Chemical Peel the Best Treatment for Sun-Damaged Skin?
For those with sun damaged skin, one of the best ways to improve the health and appearance of the skin is with a chemical peel. A chemical peel is applied to the surface of the skin either on the face, neck and other sun damaged areas. The topical used to treat the skin removes the outer layer of the skin allowing the new skin to grow smoother and softer, with less wrinkles. Even though a chemical peel is an optimal treatment for sun damaged skin, it can help with so much more such as:
• Fine Lines Around Mouth and Eyes
• Age Spots, Dark Patches and Freckles
• Rough Texture
• Sun Damage
• Enlarged Pores
• Acne and Acne Scars
Levels of Chemical Peel Depth
For best results it is best to receive on average three sessions of chemical peel. However, depending on the persons skin and levels of sun damage, you will need a different level of chemical skin peel. There are light and medium peels that can greatly improve the sun’s damage to the skin.
Light Chemical Peel: A light chemical peel uses an alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA), glycolic acid, or a salicylic acid that removes the out layer of the skin. A light peel can improve the surface of the skin and lighten up dark sun spot or discoloration on the skin. Skin dark spots or discoloration may have been caused by sun exposure, chlorine, or salty air can be repaired with light chemical peel.
Medium Chemical Peel: A medium chemical peel uses a glycolic acid, or a lactic acid that can treat sun damaged or imperfection of the skin. For more deeper damaged skin you may find you need a medium chemical peel versus a light chemical peel. Medium chemical peels can not be done to closely together. Medium chemical peels should be done a month in between each other. Medium peels are also much shorter per session.
