5 Facial Peel Benefits For Healthy Skin

April 7, 2021 by Kate Somerville

At Kate’s Skin Health Experts Clinics in Los Angeles and New York City, chemical peels are one of the most sought after anti-aging treatments – and with good reason. Chemical peels are an excellent solution to various skin concerns - from fine lines and wrinkles to acne and hyperpigmentation. Getting a chemical peel at our clinic – or at a skincare clinic near you - can quickly help you achieve brighter, more youthful-looking skin. Bringing home the power of a clinic-grade chemical peel allows you to achieve and maintain similar results from the comfort of home for smooth, radiant, brightened, younger-looking skin. 


Not sure if a chemical peel treatment is right for you? We asked our Skin Health Experts at Kate Somerville to share the five facial peel benefits for healthy skin.


It's important to note that not all chemical peels are the same. Before you incorporate a chemical peel into your skincare regimen, identify your main skin concerns and speak with a practitioner to determine which type of chemical peel is best for your skin's individual needs, whether it be for purposes of anti-aging, skin resurfacing, acne, or hyperpigmentation.


Once you've chosen a chemical peel for your skin type, get ready to reap the fantastic benefits!


Chemical Peels Help Repair Sun Damage



Our skin is exposed to harmful UV rays daily. While you may not notice a difference in your skin each time you step out of the house, over time, damage caused by UV rays builds up and manifests as signs of premature aging. Thankfully, chemical peels can help visibly reduce this damage. When applied to your face, hands, neck, and chest, a chemical peel strips away old, damaged cells, revealing more youthful-looking skin. Visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, helping to plump and tighten skin.


Chemical Peels Work to Clear Pigmentation Issues



If you're struggling with issues of hyperpigmentation, you're not alone. Common skin issues we see and treat in our Skin Health Expert Clinics include melasma, hyperpigmentation, and discoloration caused by age spots and acne. By sloughing away the top layer of your skin, chemical peels remove some of the discolored pigment along with it. So, if dark spots and acne scars have outstayed their welcome, it's time to invest in a quality facial peel that will reveal a more even-toned complexion.


Chemical Peels Can Help Improve Acne



Are you struggling with acne? Opt for a facial peel that contains salicylic acid. Chemical peels formulated with salicylic acid as its main ingredient can significantly reduce acne and prevent future blemishes from forming. Because acne is commonly a skin surface issue, aside from reducing acne scars' appearance, chemical peels can help unclog pores and remove the bacteria that cause acne in the first place.


Chemical Peels Help Reduce Fine Lines & Wrinkles



By removing your skin's damaged outer layer, chemical peels reveal a new layer of skin free of dry, fine lines.[1] Though not all wrinkles diminish during a chemical peel treatment, it can reduce their appearance. Depending on your skin's health and the volume of your wrinkles, you'll want to consult a seasoned practitioner to determine if a moderate or deep chemical peel is the best solution for your specific skincare goals.


Chemical Peels Increase the Effectiveness of other Skincare Products



Because chemical peels remove the top layer of dead skin from your face, they allow other skincare products to better penetrate the skin and be absorbed more efficiently. With the dead skin gone, each product in your skincare regimen is more effective. Not only will you notice a boost in your skin's health, but you'll also be able to stretch your budget a bit more.


Who is an Ideal Candidate for A Chemical Peel?



When determining if a chemical peel is right for you, identify your skin concerns. If your skin shows signs of pigmentation, scarring, fine lines, or wrinkles, you'd likely benefit from a chemical peel. While there are various types of chemical peels, if you're hoping to enhance your skin's overall appearance without undergoing an invasive treatment, then a light or medium chemical peel is best. Our Skin Health Experts can help you identify the best peel for your skin’s needs. Feel free to visit us in Los Angeles or New York City or book a virtual Clinic-On-Call consultation from anywhere in the world.
