When it comes to keeping your skin healthy, you may have a washing regimen that you stick to. However, you may have found that this regimen alone doesn’t necessarily help you keep the flawless skin that you’re looking for. Luckily for you, there are a lot of procedures that can help you maintain flawless skin without invasive surgeries.

Among those procedures are chemical peels. These are procedures that help remove layers of skin that have imperfections to reveal your literal underlying beauty. Certain types of chemical peels can help you remove or reduce signs of aging, including lines, wrinkles, freckles, age spots, and skin discolorations. As you age, you may find that your skincare regimen needs a little more work. If you aren’t sure whether or not a chemical peel is right for you, check out these ways Academic & Aesthetic Dermatology Consultants can help you.

1. Superficial Peels

Superficial chemical peels are exactly what they sound like. A superficial chemical peel uses a mild acid to reduce the surface layer of skin. This procedure is perfect if you are dealing with mild skin discolorations or irritations. Superficial peels are also great ways to rejuvenate your face, neck, chest, or hands. By removing the surface layer of skin, you are essentially doing a deep exfoliation to remove any imperfections on that top layer.

2. Medium Peels

If your skin needs more than a superficial chemical peel, you may find that a medium chemical peel is right for you. Medium peels actually penetrate the middle layers of skin as well as the superficial layers. This helps dispose of any damaged cells that are deep within the skin. Additionally, a treatment like this can actually help you reduce the signs of aging like wrinkles, lines, age spots, and even freckles. Medium peels also help you remove any moderate skin discolorations. The most surprising aspect of medium chemical peels is that they can actually help you remove any precancerous skin ailments, including growths. Talk to your dermatologist if this is something that you are worried about.

3. Deep Peels

If you know that your skin could benefit from even more than a medium chemical peel, there is a third option: deep chemical peels. Deep peels are, as you can imagine, a way to penetrate the deeper middle layer of your skin. This type of chemical peel is reserved for those who really need it. Your dermatologist can tell you about how your skin can benefit from a deep chemical peel. Deep chemical peels can remove wrinkles, lines, and even scars. This is a procedure that you will see nearly instant results with.

Chemical peels are a great way to remove unwanted blemishes from your skin while you fight precancerous cells and look younger and healthier.
