There’s no denying that beauty makes a woman feel good about herself. For women everywhere, a hectic lifestyle of stress, caffeine (and possibly alcohol & cigarettes), and exposure to sun’s heat & other air pollutants makes having a healthy skin quite challenging. Fortunately, experts have come up with various techniques for radiant skin, easily applicable even in day spas. The oldest known and most simple of which is the chemical peel.
Chemical peels remove dead cells from the skin’s surface with an acid solution. This reduces blemishes and spots by revealing a new and silky smooth layer of skin. It can be used on areas marked by scars, pigmentations, acne, freckles, melisma, and smoothen fine lines and wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging.
Chemical peels are generally ideal for those with fair skin and light hair, but can also work well for darker complexion. A competent cosmetic expert will evaluate whether chemical peels are appropriate and will suggest alternative solutions if not. Those with sagging skin, severe wrinkles, and bulges may need other kinds of cosmetic procedure.
Like all other treatments, chemical peels have minor side effects characterised by temporary redness, mild tingling and burning sensations and crusts. This is less common with professional treatment. Patient should religiously follow the after-care instructions as advised by their skin care specialist. Since the skin is temporarily sensitive to the sun, patients are advised to wear “broad spectrum” sunscreen, and to limit the time under the sun especially… when the heat is at its peak.
