Everyone deserves a pampering of the face now and then. With the pressures of stress, aging, and other environmental factors, it can be so easy for acne, wrinkles, and other facial changes to occur once in a while. But one should not dwell on this dilemma forever. A solution to this is a procedure called a chemical peel.

What is it?

The TCA Chemical Peel is a non-invasive treatment that exfoliates the skin and loosens dead skin cells that have already bound to the facial surface. This procedure increases the amount of collagen released by the skin, therefore improving facial appearance. Chemical peels will give you a more youthful complexion and a tighter, smoother, and a more hydrated skin.

How can it help?

Chemical peels are not only done on the face, but in the neck or hands, as well. It can reduce fine lines appearing under the eyes and around the mouth and treat wrinkles brought by aging and sun exposure. It can also soften scars and treat certain types of acne. Chemical peels reduce the amount of freckles and dark patches possibly caused by pregnancy. Overall, it will rejuvenate your skin for a better appearance.

Who should have it?

It is best to know beforehand if you are a candidate for this procedure. Generally, light-skinned people can have more favorable results, since dark-skinned ones can have uneven skin tone after the procedure. Then again, it only depends upon the skin problem being treated.

Moreover, if you have extreme sags, wrinkles, and bulges, a chemical peel alone will not alleviate your problem. It might be best to seek other options such as face lift, brow lift, and the likes.
