Are Chemical Peels Safe?

There are so many beauty treatments and options for those wanting to improve the look and feel of their skin. But for many, the question of safety comes up when deciding on having a chemical peel done. Let’s take a deeper look into what a chemical peel is and how safe the treatment is for skin.

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a treatment in which a topical acid solution is applied to remove dead and damage outer skin layers to refine and strengthen the texture of the skin. If the chemical peel is performed by a skilled professional, it can be both a safe and highly effective option for reducing pore size, preventing aging through collagen stimulation and correcting skin tones.

What can you expect from a chemical peel?

The strength of the chemical peel and its ingredients depend on the particular skin care concerns the patient has. Each chemical peel can be customized based on individual needs. Adverse reactions are rare with most chemical peels and the recovery time depends on the specific acid and percentage used for the peel. The mildest peel formulas include alphahydroxy acids, such as glycolic, lactic or enzymatic fruit acids and these peel formulas produce a light exfoliation cell turnover resulting in smoother and more vibrant skin with little or no recovery time necessary.

Medium to deeper peel such as Resorcinol, Jessner or Salicylic treatments can be expected to yield mild irritation, flaking and redness. These side effects typically only last a few days. With any chemical procedure, you should adhere to the pre-and post-procedure care instructions to minimize the potential for side effects and to achieve the maximum desired result.

Why Chemical Peels are Ideal for Beautiful Skin

In minutes, the acids lift away any dead skin cells and trigger a beautiful chain reaction: as the top layer of skin is shed, signals are sent to the living cells below to multiply and then move up to increase collagen production and to make more hyaluronic acid. Smoother skin is then born and your skincare products perform better because there are no dead cells impeding the penetration.
