Chemical peels are an easy and effective thing to add to your normal skin care routine. By getting regular chemical peels, you can help to balance out the oils on your skin and target things like scarring, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. But, in addition to helping with all of those things, there are a few other things about chemical peels that you may not know about.
They Can Help With Back Acne
Despite popular belief, chemical peels can be used on more parts of your body than just your face. With spring break just around the corner, you may be getting your body bikini ready by hitting the gym, but don’t forget to take care of your skin. If you get a lot of back acne because of sweat, stress, or hormones then a chemical may be able to help.
There Are Different Kinds
When you come into see Dr. Toni Stockton for your chemical peel consultation, she will sit down with you, take a look at your skin, go over your concerns, and then help you choose the right type of chemical peel for your skin. For instance, if you have oily, acne-prone skin, then she may recommend one type of peel over another than if you have dry skin. Either way, you will leave feeling confident and comfortable with your chemical peel decision.
You May Not Peel
Depending on the strength that we use on your skin, you may or may not actually peel. For instance, some of our patients only experience a little bit of redness whereas other patients experience a lot of peeling skin afterward. After you leave our office, we will tell you exactly what you can expect from your specific type of peel and how you should take care of your skin while you recover.
