Invest in Your Skin: The Pros and Cons of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are one of the top requested beauty treatments, especially during the holiday season.
Whether you are considering gifting this treatment for family or friends, or if you would like to treat yourself to one, we are outlining the pros and cons of this popular treatment.
Pro: Chemical Peels Offer Significant Skin Rejuvenation
A chemical peel treatment is one of the best treatments to completely rejuvenate your skin. Not only can this treatment help to even out skin tone, but it can also improve texture, minimize scarring, smooth pores, and address fine lines and wrinkles.
Pro: Chemical Peels are Affordable
When compared to other popular treatments such as laser or microneedling, chemical peels generally range in a more affordable price range which makes it the perfect holiday gift.
Con: Many Unqualified Offices Offer Peel Treatments
It can be enticing to take advantage of Groupon deals online for peel treatments. However, if applied by an unqualified person, a peel can yield horrific side effects.
Always trust your skin to a board certified skin care professional who has extensive experience working with chemical peels.
Con: Downtime with Peel Treatments
A deeper chemical peel may require significant downtime (sometimes up to a few weeks.) Moreover, many peels require that you stay out of the sun for a significant period following your treatment.
That said, the fall and winter is a great time for a peel as we generally remain indoors and out of harmful rays of the sun.
