You’ve heard of retinol, and you’ve heard of a chemical peel, and while each works to improve the skin in its own way, they’re even more powerful when you put them together. At True Skin Care Center in Chicago, IL, we offer the Retinol Peel, a powerful skincare treatment that will help improve your skin, brighten your complexion, and treat some of your most stubborn skin imperfections.
What Are the Benefits of a Retinol Peel?
It Addresses Sun Damage
If you’ve experienced any degree of sun damage, you may feel like you’re destined to live with that sun damage forever. However, a Retinol Peel can help transform your skin by evening out your skin tone and reducing the appearance and severity of that sun damage.
Wearing sunscreen and limiting sun exposure combined with regular Retinol Peels can go a long way in helping you repair, protect, and heal your skin and, in doing so, reverse current and prevent future sun damage. Sun is the number one cause of premature aging. It’s important that you develop discipline and commit to using sun protection every day to help keep your skin as youthful as possible and avoid further sun damage.
It Slows the Breakdown of Collagen
Sunlight causes your collagen to break down, so if your face is constantly exposed to the sun, your skin will suffer. Collagen is essential for beautiful, youthful skin, but when your collagen levels begin to break down, your skin will suddenly start to exhibit the signs of aging.
This peel works against the aging process by helping increase collagen production. It also restores youth to the skin. Regular Retinol Peels will help you maintain healthy collagen levels for as long as possible.
It Increases Skin Elasticity
Not only does this peel help increase collagen production, but it will also promote skin elasticity. Skin elasticity is important because it helps keep lines and wrinkles at bay. It also helps your skin be elastic and remain youthful. When you take the necessary steps to help promote skin elasticity, you can rest assured that not only will you maintain younger-looking skin, but you’ll help prevent lines and wrinkles from forming.
It Reduces the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles form from lifestyle habits, sun exposure, genetics, and aging. This peel helps combat fine lines and wrinkles by increasing cellular turnover and uncovering a fresh, more youthful layer of skin. If you have fine lines and wrinkles that have begun to define your appearance, this peel will help significantly lighten them and soften their appearance. Your skin will feel rejuvenated after your treatment, and you will glow with the radiance of youth.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Peels can be added to a typical facial. During your treatment, your esthetician will apply the peel to your entire face. Then, she will wait for a set amount of time before removing the peel. You may feel a tingling sensation as the peel’s acids work together to dissolve the top layer of your skin and uncover the youthful layer beneath.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is no downtime associated with this peel, but you will have to take extra care of your skin in the days following your treatment. Since this peel uncovers a fresh, new, and younger layer of skin, you need to take every measure possible to protect it from sun exposure.
You should wear high-quality sunscreen regardless of the forecast, and wear a hat and sunglasses whenever you are exposed to the sun to keep your skin protected from its harmful rays. Even after your skin has completely healed from your treatment, making these things a habit can ensure that you are protected from the sun.
Will I Peel?
Some people experience peeling skin after a chemical peel; others don’t. It depends on the strength of the peel and how your skin reacts to the treatment. During your initial consultation, we can give you a better idea of what kind of results you can expect after your peel and how you should care for your skin. If you do end up peeling, it’s important that you let it happen naturally and avoid picking at your skin because doing so could result in an infection or scarring.
Is This Peel Right for Me?
The Retinol Peel is a good choice for those who struggle with hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and sun damage. If you want to improve your skin and achieve beautiful results, this peel will help you reach your skin goals, especially when you schedule regular treatments every month. You’ll see brighter, rejuvenated skin after just one treatment, and your skin will keep getting better with every treatment.
