Chemical peels offer a convenient and easy way for you to take care of unwanted skin blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, sun damaged skin, dry, patchy skin and unsightly scars. Chemical peels offer the deepest level of exfoliation outside of expensive laser treatments. There are both benefits and risks to using peels and you need to carefully consider both before deciding to go ahead with this procedure.
Why Do You Want a Chemical Peel?
The first thing you should ask yourself is why you think you need to have a chemical peel. If you only have mild skin conditions such as minor blemishes or some blotchiness, you do have other options available to you. Particularly if you are under the age of 30, you may not need a chemical peel.
However, if you are older and experiencing the effects of aging skin, or you’ve spent too much time in the sun, or are living with severe acne eruptions and scars, then chemical peels definitely would be a good option.
