If you’re looking for a non-invasive, yet effective method to address and treat any number of the common skin issues you may have, you will find what you’re looking for when you experience one of our chemical peels. At Medwin Family Medicine & Rehab, we offer these highly effective peel treatments that will renew and rejuvenate your skin.

What Are the Benefits of a Chemical Peel?

The main benefits of chemical peel is that they are anti-aging. When you undergo regular treatments, they can help transform your complexion from dull and flat to vibrant and radiant.

You can watch as your skin slowly transforms and develops a glow that will have everyone begging to know your secret. Vanity aside, these peels can also help address and treat the skin issues you haven’t been able to, such as melasma, sun damage, and age spots.

It’s Not Just for the Face

When you think of a chemical peel, you may only think of it as a treatment for the face. While this is the most common area treated by a peel, it can also be used to treat the neck and hands.

The neck and hands are often overlooked when it comes to skincare, yet they both can easily show the signs of aging when left untreated and unprotected from the sun. You can easily improve the appearance of the skin on your hands and neck with these peels.

It’s Painless

Some in-office skin treatments can be painful and will have you reflecting on the saying that “beauty is pain” as you are white-knuckle your way through your appointment. Peels, on the other hand, are not painful. You can lay back as the esthetician applies the peel to your face and wait for it to work its magic.

It Helps Improve Melasma

Melasma is a skin condition where brown patches appear on the face. While this condition appears in both men and women, it is far more common in women. It results from several different factors including pregnancy, sun exposure, and hormonal changes. Peels help exfoliate the skin and treat melasma through their acid-based ingredients.

It Treats Discoloration From Acne

After experiencing a breakout, you are often left with a dark spot. This dark spot forms when the skin responds to the inflammation that occurs during the breakout. This dark spot may take weeks or longer to resolve.

If you struggle with acne-related hyperpigmentation, this treatment can help reduce these spots by removing the top layer of your skin and revealing a fresh, new layer that is smoother and lightens the spots on your face left by the former acne.

It Helps Target Sun Damage and Premature Aging

The sun is the number one factor involved in premature aging. Whether you spent years in tanning beds or too much time on spring break out in the sun, the truth is, you’re paying for it now with wrinkles that you wish you didn’t have.

A chemical peel is one way to help reverse the damage of your younger years. The chemical solution in the peel replaces the old skin that shows the signs of your past mistakes with new skin that is smoother and youthful.

It Treats Age Spots

Age spots also go by the name “liver spots” and they appear on the face, hands, neck, arms, and any other areas exposed to the sun. They begin to develop with age and are more common in those with fair skin and can appear brown, tan, or black.

A chemical peel helps treat these by eliminating them. When the layer of skin that has age spots is removed, a youthful, new layer of skin is revealed that hasn’t been touched or damaged by the sun.

It Wakes Up Tired-Looking Skin

If your skin looks and feels tired, it’s probably due to dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. These cells prevent the new fresh layer beneath it from showing. Tired skin looks dull and flat and lacks the glow and dimension of youth.

These peels work to exfoliate the skin and reach deeper into the layers of the skin and remove dead skin, unlike any at-home treatment you may have tried.

It Helps Even Out Skin Tone and Texture

When your skin isn’t exfoliated, dead skin builds up and can affect your skin tone and texture. Chemical peels remove this barrier and allow your skin to exhibit that glow and brightness definitive of youthful radiance.

If you feel as though your skin tone and skin are uneven, this treatment will change that and turn your skin from drab to fabulous.

It Helps Improve the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

A resolution for fine lines and wrinkles is probably one of the most sought after solutions regarding skincare. If you’ve invested hundreds of dollars in skin products and gadgets such as expensive serums, creams, and devices only to be left disappointed when they don’t improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, an in-office peel will help. You will see your fine lines and wrinkles soften and be reduced in their overall appearance.

If any of these skin conditions describe your skin, don’t wait any longer to schedule the appointment that is not only an investment in your skin but an investment in yourself. Contact us at Medwin Family Medicine & Rehab and schedule your chemical peel appointment today.
