Many women, after noticing how their skin is aging, begin to look for ways they can improve their overall appearance and skin texture, especially when it comes to their face. One of the methods many women resort to is medical grade chemical peels. This is because you can get the appearance of younger, tighter skin without having to undergo painful plastic surgeries. But before you decide to get a chemical peel, we have a few pieces of advice for you to take so that you can have the best experience possible.
See a board certified cosmetic dermatologist
Only a doctor knows whether or not you are a good candidate for a chemical peel. Certain skin types do not handle chemical peels well. Plus it is important that whoever is administering the chemical peel can tell the difference between a sun spot and a precancerous cell before treatment begins.
Understand the strength of the chemical peel your doctor is recommending
There are three different strengths of chemical peels which you can have. First, there are superficial peels which work to speed up the renewal process on your top layer of skin, also known as the epidermis. There are medium depth peels which penetrate more deeply than superficial peels and work to remove the top few layers of skin where most of your imperfections live. Then there are deep peels, which are for treating severe sun damage and deep wrinkles.
Get used to wearing sunscreen
After treatment, your skin is extremely sensitive. Although your doctor will apply an ample about of sunscreen to your face before you leave the office, you will want to make sure to always protect your face will sunscreen, sunglasses and by wearing a wide brimmed hat the first week or two after treatment while you are still peeling.
