What is the secret that allows the rich and famous to appear eternally young? Do they have access to secret serums or secret tools that the rest of mankind do not have? No. In most cases, what keeps the rich and famous looking young is the same thing that can keep your skin looking soft and smooth. We are talking about medical-grade chemical peels.
A chemical peel is a procedure where a special solution is applied to the skin for a set amount of time. This solution causes your skin to exfoliate. The depth to which your skin is affected varies depending on the strength of the serum that is used and the length of time it is applied to your face.
Medical-grade chemical peels can be divided into three general categories. There is a very light and superficial peel, there is a medium peel, and then there is a deep peel. Each peel is used differently depending on the skin issues a person is dealing with. When you have a deeper type of chemical peel, you should expect some downtime. But these peels deliver the most dramatic results.
With a superficial peel, only the external layer of your skin is affected. The treatment that is done to the epidermis gives your skin a smoother and more radiant appearance. With these peels, you have almost no downtime, depending on the situation.
A medium peel provides more dramatic results than a light peel. They are designed to penetrate past the epidermis into the deeper layers of your skin. You may be a good candidate for a medium peel if your skin has been damaged by the sun. You may also be a candidate for this type of peel if you have wrinkles or some other moderate skin condition.
A deep chemical peel will penetrate the deepest layers of your skin. Because of the strength of the solutions used and because of the depth of the peel, these should only be performed by trained medical personnel.
Far from being something that you should only do once or twice in your life, a mild or a medium chemical peel should be included in your skin care routine. They aid your skin in renewing itself, as well as removing toxins and impurities that can make your skin lose its luster.
The rich and famous are able to maintain their attractive appearance using tools that are readily available to you.
