Do facial chemical peels fascinate you and frighten you at the same time? If so, we understand! At Blu Cocoon MedSpa in San Jose, many of our clients are initially a little uncertain about getting a peel, but once they get one, they’re hooked. Why does this happen? Because a chemical peel is one of the fastest ways to improve your skin’s texture and clarity and diminish fine lines. Truly!
If gorgeous glowing skin isn’t incentive enough for you to try a peel, then read on. We hope to de-mystify facial mask peels, tell you what to expect and what they have to offer.
What does a peel do?
Facial mask peels provide the skin with rapid exfoliation in a short amount of time and the change in your skin is twofold. First, to the visible eye, you will see smoother, more clear skin. Second, what you can’t see, is the increase in collagen and elastin that is produced. Collagen and elastin production goes down as we age (due to environmental damage and a natural decrease in cell turnover) which leaves us with thinner, less plump skin. A peel helps to remove sun damage and keeps you ahead of the aging process.
What are the benefits of a chemical peel?
Getting regular facial mask peels will keep your skin healthy and younger-looking. You will also see texture and pigmentation issues improve because the peel helps to get rid of superficial damage (sun spots and age spots). Sloughing of the surface skin will leave your skin brighter and the increase in elastin and collagen production will help to tighten and plump your skin.
Will my skin really peel off?
Depending on the strength of the peel, you may see light flaking to more aggressive peeling of the skin. Most peeling occurs for about 2 to 5 days.
What is a chemical peel good for?
Besides treating the skin to a thorough exfoliation, which is good for anyone, we see facial peels help clients who have acne and hyperpigmentation issues. We also see peels help clients who have fine lines and dull skin.
