Here’s What You Need To Know About Chemical Peels

Curious about Chemical peels? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Below we’ve shared a few things you need to know about Chemical Peels.


First Off, They Work

Chemical Peels are experiencing a bit of a resurgence nowadays—but for a good reason. There were about 600,000 chemical peels performed in 2015, which was a 25 percent jump from 2014.

Chemical Peels are winning people over because they are a simple, non-intimidating solution for common skin problems. The practice is far from new. Chemical Peels have been a staple in the beauty community for over 2,000 years. Milk Baths were one of Cleopatra’s favorite skin treatments, and Turkish leaders would use fire to produce thermal exfoliation. Some of the most popular ingredients from the past are still used to treat skin today!

Why Should You Get a Chemical Peel?

Now, Chemical Peels can contain a wide variety of ingredient, designed to suit any skin type. At The Medical Spa of Baton Rouge, our specialist can craft a chemical peel treatment based on your skin care needs. We can craft a formula to correct acne, age spots, discoloration and more. A peel can produce changes that are light on the skin but also freshening through exfoliation. Deep peels help can help with pigmentation issues and correct wrinkles.

Skin Peels Help Your Skincare Products Work Better

Minutes after the peel is applied, your body gets to work. Chemical peels trigger a lovely chain reaction that notifies the top layer of the skin to shed. As the signal is sent deep into the lower levels of the skin, living cells below begin to multiply. The newly produced cells push themselves to the upper layers of the skin, creating a fresh, youthful look. After the peel, your skin-care products will perform better since there are no dead skin cells in their way.

They Are Healthy & Low-Risk!

Everyone’s skin is unique. There are chemical peels safe to use on every skin type, but now doctors can create a customized treatment, designed to address your personal needs. These formulas can be used to boost collagen synthesis, target dry skin, and focus on your problem areas. Your doctor can add a pinch of the vitamins and nutrients they think will help your skin.
