A chemical peel is one of the more popular types of exfoliation spa treatments in Norfolk, VA. An aesthetician applies a chemical solution to a client’s face that removes dead skin cells from the top layer of skin. Treatment time for a chemical peel is typically under 30 minutes, but the peeling process can last three to five days post-treatment. During the peeling process, the dead skin cells flake off, revealing fresh, new skin underneath.
There are several benefits to having a chemical peel as one of your spa treatments. Chemical peels reveal a smoother, brighter, and more refined complexion, and they also improve the overall look and feel of your skin after just one treatment. Other benefits of chemical peels include:
- Improving the Skin’s Clarity, Color, Tone, and Texture
- Stimulating New Collagen Growth
- Reducing Sun Damage Discoloration
- Helping Clear Breakouts
- Lessening the Look of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Increasing Skin Hydration
- Improving the Look of Superficial Scars and Imperfections
Chemical peels also enable skincare products used at home to be more effective because these spa treatments remove several layers of skin build-up and congestion, helping products to penetrate deeper into the skin. For long-term results, a series of three or more chemical peels spaced four to six weeks apart are recommended.
