Whether you're looking for a wrinkle treatment or a way to pamper yourself coming into the new year, a chemical peel could be the perfect option for you. Here are just a few reasons why your new year should start with a chemical peel.

The Benefits of Chemical Peel Treatments

Improve Product Absorption

Product absorption is the key to an effective skincare routine. But when your skin seems dull and like it's not responding to your normal regimen, a chemical peel could be the solution. Since the primary purpose of a chemical peel is to remove the outermost layers of skin, it will help remove all of that dead skin cell buildup that's keeping your products from penetrating your skin. Once your chemical peel reveals the brighter, smoother skin underneath, your skin will absorb products like nobody's business. Chemical peels are excellent exfoliating agents and might be the solution you're looking for if product absorption is becoming an issue for you. A new year shouldn't mean investing in a whole new skincare routine when a simple cosmetic dermatology service could help.

Minimize Fine Lines and Wrinkles

If fine lines and wrinkles are something you want to leave behind, then it's time to consider a chemical peel. Whether you're seeing more fine lines as a result of stress or you want to age more gracefully, it's normal to want to treat these imperfections in your skin. As we mentioned above, chemical peels are excellent exfoliating agents. By removing the topmost layers of skin and revealing newer skin underneath, chemical peels can help stimulate collagen production and help you maintain smooth, glowing skin as you enter the new year.

Correct Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is common around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Acne scars can also be hyperpigmented and darker than the rest of the skin. If this is something that's bothering you, then it's worth considering a chemical peel. Chemical peels can help lift some of that discoloration from your skin and promote a brighter, more even skin tone. In fact, chemical peels are commonly used to treat conditions like melasma and to help minimize the appearance of acne scarring.

Customize Your Treatment

One of the biggest advantages of investing in a chemical peel is that this treatment can be customized to your skin's needs. While a lot of the media surrounding chemical peels depicts skin rashes and the like, the truth is that your dermatologist will make sure your chemical peel is appropriate for your skin. Depending on your skin's sensitivity and your desired results, it's possible for them to recommend a chemical peel that will meet both standards. So if you have more sensitive skin and you're just looking for a bit of a skin refresh, a very mild chemical peel might be perfect for you.
