Reverse Signs of Aging Using Chemical Peels

The idea of reversing the signs of aging is extremely appealing to many people. As we get older, there are so many things about our appearance that change. For example, the condition of our skin is not what it used to be. In our youth, we have skin that is well-hydrated, firm and plump. As the years go by, this situation dramatically changes. We are left with skin that is dull, damaged and definitely not as firm and hydrated as it used to be. Chemical peels are a great solution that can help you reverse some of the common signs of aging and help you look younger.

Chemical peels have been tested time and again and have consistently produced fantastic results for many types of people with varying skin conditions. Because no two people are exactly alike, we offer many different types of chemical peels. Lighter chemical peels can be used to treat skin issues such as brown spots and fine lines and wrinkles while improving the overall health of your skin.

Deeper problems, however, require deeper treatment. Sun-damaged or more deeply wrinkled skin would benefit more from a phenol or TCA peel. We often recommend these peels for clients who are dealing with more deeply set wrinkles, difficult brown spots and problems with skin texture.

Clients who want to target acne, age spots, melasma and fine lines would benefit from the gentle ReVitalize Peel, while Face-A-New is designed to improve the tone and texture of the skin and promote future healing by kick starting collagen production. Both of these peels can be safely used on almost every skin type.

So why do chemical peels work? For one, they work in the same way that other skin treatments that include exfoliation do. It helps get rid of the outermost layers of skin that mostly consist of dead skin cells, oil and dirt. Once this layer is removed, the more youthful and fresher looking skin underneath is revealed. Next, many chemical peels encourage the skin to start producing more beneficial substances, like collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, all of which help your skin look hydrated and young.

Many have noticed that after just one chemical peel, their fine lines have disappeared. In many cases, these fine lines are simply the result of the top dead layers of skin that are creasing. This is why even lighter peels can do much to improve the appearance of fine lines.

Chemical peels are among the most effective treatments available when it comes to reversing the signs of aging on your skin. Whether you are dealing with fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage or acne, we will likely be able to find a peel that works for you.

The specialists at Facial Aesthetic Concepts are proud to provide many different types of chemical peels for almost any skin concern. Contact us today at any of our three offices in San Clemente, Aliso Viejo or Rancho Santa Margarita to schedule a consultation to learn more about how chemical peels can keep your skin looking its best.

Light Chemical Peel for Skin Rejuvenation with No Downtime

It's surprising how some celebrities do not seem to age over the years. Take a celebrity, for example, who was popular in the 1980’s. They’re in a movie now in the mid-2000’s, and they look like they’ve only aged a couple of years. You sit there, wondering to yourself, "what is their secret?!" Well, the truth is, they do not have a secret. In fact, what they are using to keep their skin looking refreshed is something that millions of people around the world are using to improve the overall appearance of their skin. We’re talking about chemical peels.

Chemical Peels Nowadays

When you think about chemical peels, it’s easy to get a little nervous. One of the reasons people feel nervous when they talk about chemical peels is because they associate chemical peels with those very invasive procedures that remove a lot of their skin.

The truth is that most cosmetic professionals shy away from doing those invasive chemical peels nowadays. While they appreciate the benefits of these previous chemical peels, they also understand the potential negative side effects.

Cosmetic professionals are focusing on lighter, milder chemical peels these days. These still offer stellar results, but they don’t have any of the risk or side effects that the deeper chemical peels offer.

Light chemical peels work perfectly for both men and women. They are the ideal treatment for a person who wants to restore their youthful glow.

Benefits of Chemical Peels

One of the benefits of a light chemical peel is that it increases cell turnover. This in turn minimizes the effects of hyperpigmentation. Your skin is mildly exfoliated, and it leaves you with a nice appearance.

Really, the term chemical peel can leave you with the wrong impression about the procedure. It is true that during a chemical peel, chemicals are applied to your skin, but nothing is peeled off.

Instead, what happens is the chemical solution affects the upper layer of your skin. As the skin heals itself, new fresh tissue emerges. This leaves you with smooth looking skin.

A light chemical peel has many benefits. One of the benefits is that it reduces fine lines and wrinkles. There are a lot of topical creams available that promise to do this, but the effects of these creams are negligible. And they are almost nonexistent when compared to the results you get after using a chemical peel.

Chemical peels are a lot less invasive, and a lot faster than any surgical procedure. With a light chemical peel, you can have the procedure done and go back to your everyday activities with a beautiful face you will be proud to show off to the world.
