Types of Facial Peels
Light Facial Peel Benefits
A light chemical peel removes the top layer of skin, or the epidermis. This light peel can make a huge difference in sun spots, fine lines, uneven skin tone, and dryness. This peel requires little to no down time.
Medium Facial Peel Benefits
A medium facial peel is more intense. It penetrates through the epidermis to the upper layer of the dermis, causing these layers to peel, revealing newer skin. This type of facia peel requires some down time for healing and will help remove precancerous spots, dark brown spots, crows feet, and some shallow scars. A little down time for a fresh face might be worth the trade.
Deep Facial Peel Benefits
A deep facial peel is done by applying a chemical agent called Phenol to your skin. This chemical will penetrate through your epidermis, all the way through the two layers of your dermis. Obviously, this is the most painful of the facial peels, and does require a loner time to recover. There is a greater risk for complications, so really do your homework before opting for this one. Unless you have have severe sun damage or deep acne scars, this one may be more pain than gain.
The benefits of a facial can be great if you weigh the risks and benefits and style on the level of peel that will work for you. Always check with your doctor if you have any questions or concerns, and be sure that you use a reputable and highly recommended practitioner to perform the procedure. You only get one face, so be proactive and choosy when it comes to having skin treatments.
There is only one you, so take good care of yourself! Let your radiance shine from within and love your life!
Happy beautiful life!
