The holidays are upon us, which means you might be experiencing a bit of holiday stress. And unfortunately, that stress can physically show up on your skin. So if you're looking for a holiday wrinkle treatment to remove signs of stress from your skin, a chemical peel might be just the thing for you. Here's what you need to know.
First and foremost, chemical peels help brighten the skin. This is a result of the chemical solution your dermatologist will apply to your skin, which will help remove the outermost layers of skin, revealing new skin beneath. Not only can this help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, but this is a suitable treatment for reducing the appearance of acne scarring and dark spots on the skin, as well. It's also possible to have a chemical peel performed on areas other than your face, too. Chemical peels can be applied to the neck, chest, and hands if those are problem areas for you. But there are plenty of other benefits that come with chemical peels. Let's get into a few of them.
If it seems like your skin is duller and isn't responding to your normal skincare routine, it's possible that you have some dead skin buildup on your face that needs to be treated. Holiday stress can cause dry skin, clogged up pores, and contribute to that buildup of dead skin cells that makes your skin look dull. But a chemical peel's entire purpose is to remove the topmost layers of skin to reveal the brighter, smoother skin underneath. Chemical peels are excellent exfoliating agents and can help you attain that glowing look once again. And since they remove all of that dead skin that's in the way of your skincare products, they can also make your skincare routine work even better. Without all of that dead, dull skin on your face, you'll get excellent product penetration. So the problem might not actually be your skincare routine this holiday season -- it could be your skin!
One of the biggest benefits of chemical peels is that they can be customized to fit your exact skincare needs. Maybe your holiday stress has taken shape in the form of dark circles under your eyes. A brightening chemical peel could help reduce the appearance of those dark circles for you. If your holiday stress contributes to fine lines and wrinkles and you don't have any skin sensitivity, a more intense chemical peel could provide the results you want. Depending on your skin's needs and your desired results, you can work with your dermatologist to customize this treatment specifically for you. Using a non-customizable treatment on sensitive skin might result in a skin rash, there's a low chance of that here.
Chemical peels are excellent treatments to reduce signs of stress on your skin. If you want to know more about how chemical peels could help you this holiday season, set up your consultation with SE Dermatology Specialists today.
