Posted in Beauti-Med Tips


Chemical peels are a powerful way to restore the natural beauty of your skin. Although the treatment is commonly used and provides consistent results, many people still don’t know what exactly chemical peels do.

Chemical Peel Treatment

The following will help you become familiar with the treatment to see it can provide the benefits you’re looking for. In addition, understanding the different types of chemical peels will help you choose the one that’s right for you.

What is a Chemical Peel?

A properly applied chemical peel can do wonders for your skin’s appearance, texture, and its overall health. It uses a chemical solution to remove dead skin cells that build up over time.

A chemical peel helps generate new skin that is free of fine lines and wrinkles. This makes it a great solution for fighting the signs of aging and damage from exposure to the sun.

It’s important to have a trained professional apply your chemical peel. Although some peels do not require a medically licensed professional, you should seek a professional esthetician, dermatologist, or surgeon to get the best results without any risk.

Also, consulting with an expert will help you determine the best treatment for your particular needs.

The following are some of the benefits of chemical peels:

  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Treat sun damage
  • Prevent signs of aging
  • Reduce the visibility of some scars
  • Treat some mild cases of acne
  • Reduce pigmentation issues such as spots and freckles
  • Provide more youthful and healthy looking skin

Different Types of Chemical Peels

There are a number of treatment methods that you should consider. Understanding each one will help you decide which one might be best for your needs.

  • Alpha Hydroxy Acid – This is a mild treatment that is ideal for treating pigmentation, fine lines, acne, and dryness.
  • Beta Hydroxy Acid – BHA treatments can go deep into the skin and helps manage acne, sebum excretion, and dead skin cell development.
  • Retinoic Acid – This peel is even deeper than the beta hydroxyl acid treatment. It can help eliminate scars and wrinkles while also addressing issues related to pigmentation.

Are You a Candidate For a Chemical Peel?

Not everyone will respond to chemical peels equally. If you have significant wrinkles, bulging, or sagging of the skin, then you may not achieve the results you want from chemical peels. Consulting with Beauti-Med will determine what your specific case will require.

Individuals who have fair skin tone generally respond better to chemical peels. Those with darker skin tones can still get results, but they will need to consider their goals to ensure that a chemical peel will be effective.

For mild wrinkles and scars, as well as treatment of some acne and pigmentation issues, chemical peels provide superior results when compared to other treatments. It restores your natural and youthful skin while preventing damage from sunlight or aging.
