If you face the facts there is really nothing permanent you can do in order to combat visible signs of aging on your skin and face. However, with different procedures offered by Dr. Adelle T. Quintana at Laser & Mohs Surgery of New York, you can help to rid your skin of things that are making you look significantly older such as fine lines and wrinkles and age spots. As one of the best and most non-invasive procedures out there, chemical peels are great treatment options. Read on to learn more about chemical peels.
How They Work
In order to fully understand what types of results you are going to get from your chemical peel, you need to understand how they work. Usually composed of glycolic acid, chemical peels work to get rid of the top layer of the dermis. Once the top layer of the dermis is removed, it will send your body a signal to create new skin that is full of collagen. By creating new skin, the appearance of sun spots, acne, and fine lines and wrinkles will be significantly reduced.
What the Side Effects Are
Because your skin will be especially sensitive immediately following your chemical peel, it’s important that you shield your skin from the sun because it will be more prone to burning. Additionally, you should avoid doing other skin treatments such as laser or microdermabrasion for at least a few weeks following your chemical peel.
What the Results Are
The best part of getting a chemical peel are the results. Although your results after getting just one chemical peel won’t be quite as astounding as your results from getting multiple chemical peels, you will notice that your skin is considerably softer and clearer than before. After multiple chemical peels, you will notice that your sun spots have started to fade, your acne has cleared up, and that the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles aren’t as apparent.
