How to Get Celebrity Perfect Skin With a Chemical Peel
Choosing the right chemical peel is critical because harsh ingredients used on the face can cause significant burns or damage to the skin. Before selecting a chemical peel make sure you understand your skin allergies, have seen a dermatologist or have thoroughly investigated the side effects of at home self treatments available. Overall, a successful chemical peel can leave you with beautiful skin and feeling like a celebrity.
Prepare. One or two weeks prior to the chemical peel a mild Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) cleanser or cream should be applied to condition the skin and preparing it for an even peel.
Approximately two to three days before the peel the use of scrubbing pads and exfoliating sponges should be discontinued as well as any other shaving products.
Choose between the types of chemical peels that are available. TCA and Salicylic are the most commonly selected. Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is most commonly used for medium depth peeling. Fine wrinkles, superficial blemishes and pigment problems are commonly treated with TCA. Salicylic Acid quickly and efficiently removes dead skin cells that clog pores and makes the skin dull. Salicylic Peels are typically used for treating age spots, acne, and acne prone oily skin.
Find a certified location to get the chemical peel done. Be careful and make sure you have discussed all the side effects with the physician or person performing the chemical peeling. They are also self chemical peel treatments available in drugstores. Make sure you don’t pick ones that have ingredients that have caused allergic reactions to you previously.
Monitor you reaction to the treatment and follow up with a physician or dermatologist if you have a bad allergic reaction.
Enjoy the smooth tone, youthfulness and beauty of your skin which can make you feel like a celebrity.
