As we get older our outer layers of skin take longer to get replaced by new, fresh skin. This leads to skin that appears uneven in tone and texture. Chemical peels help to bring newer, fresher and healthier skin to the surface by getting through the outermost layers of dead skin and bringing younger layers to the surface.
Why It’s Best to have a Chemical Peel at Shelby Dermatology
Chemical Peels are an important part of a skincare regimen designed to keep your skin looking like you’re always in your 20s. At Shelby Dermatology, we do chemical peels at a variety of different strengths specifically designed for your skincare goals. We also use clinically tested products that are stronger and safer than consumer products, using industry leading brands like Vitalize to ensure you get the results you want. We recommend 2-3 lighter chemical peels, as this will minimize downtime. More aggressive chemical peels require significant downtime. Facials or HydraFacials can also be used to complement Chemical Peels to keep your skin in prime condition.
Benefits of a Chemical Peel:
- Reduces lines and wrinkles
- Evens out skin color
- Brightens complexion
- Smooths the skin
- Helps your body get to the younger, fresher skin underneath the top layers
