As everyone knows, oranges are a big deal in Florida. We love to drink the juice and just eat the fruit straight, peeling off that tough outer layer to reveal the luscious freshness within. Chemical peels are kind of like that. They peel away the outer layer of skin that is damaged and full of pore-clogging dirt and oil—yuck! Underneath is a smoother, fresher looking layer that leaves you with a more vibrant, youthful appearance. What’s not to love about that? Besides, the procedure is the most noninvasive way to improve the look of your skin, and while it is most commonly done on the face, the skin on your hands and neck can benefit too.
Sun exposure—a Florida staple as much as the orange—can damage the skin and cause wrinkles, spotting, and uneven skin tone. Age adds to the damage, and acne can leave scars. With a simple application of a chemical solution made to meet your individual needs, there can be a visible improvement in scars, liver spots, freckles, irregular skin pigmentation, rough patches, and fine lines. The type of procedure you choose depends on the level of improvement for which you are looking. With a light chemical peel, you will see subtle improvements and a healthy glow over time. A medium level will leave your skin more noticeably fresh and smooth, while a deep peel provides dramatic results, but with longer recovery. You will likely experience some irritation, redness, stinging, and flaking with the light and medium chemical peels, and additional peeling, crusting, and discomfort with the deeper option.
It is recommended that you avoid the sun for several months in order to keep the fresh new layer of skin protected. Then you’ll be ready to face the world with refreshed, healthy skin.
