What Is a Chemical Peel?

If you’ve done any research into skin care and anti-aging, you’ve probably heard about chemical peels. How can these treatments help you – and are they right for your skin? Here’s some information from Pennington Med Spa & Transformation Weight Loss Clinic in Rock Hill, SC.

What are chemical peels?

A chemical peel is a type of skin treatment that can be used on your neck, face, or hands. As the name suggests, chemical peels deeply exfoliate your skin. Newer, healthier, smoother skin is uncovered, giving you a radiant glow. These peels are excellent for treating acne and reducing the appearance of age spots and wrinkles, among other benefits.

Are they painful?

Many peels only cause a slight stinging sensation or minor skin irritation. When you come to us for skin care, we’ll examine the area that will be treated and let you know what to expect. We’ll also help you minimize and manage any discomfort you may experience.

Who can get a professional chemical peel?

While chemical peels are a great option for many people, they’re not for everyone. For example, those who are nursing or pregnant shouldn’t get this treatment. The same may be true for those who have certain skin conditions, have taken certain medications, or have used acid-based skin products. Our skin care specialists will talk to you about these and other details, then determine which type of chemical peel is best for you.
