Welcome New Skin with Chemical Peels in Milford, PA
Our skin operates on a 27-day cycle of birth, shedding, and renewal. Newer skin grows to the surface, protects us for a month, then falls away while newer skin takes its place. But as we age, this cycle slows. Dead skin, oils, and toxins pile up, preventing the healthy growth of newer, glowing skin. Chemical peels can clean the canvas and encourage better skin to grow faster. Here’s how.
How Chemical Peels Work
Though it’s not always visible, there’s a thin film of dead skin cells clinging to your face. Far from harmless, these decaying cells leave behind toxins and oils which further compromise and slow the development of new skin. To start, chemical peels wash away these harmful substances and cause dead or dying skin to peel away.
For deeper rejuvenation, chemical peels contain numerous hydrating, exfoliating, and pore cleaning agents. These substances make their way into the lower levels of skin where they support emerging cells by giving them what they need to thrive.
Finally, because chemical peels come in varying intensities (mild, medium, intense), your skin reacts by increasing production of collagen and other skin-supporting substances. Collagen keeps your skin hydrated, tight, and responsive to further damage. From the topmost layer of skin to the very bottom, chemical peels help you shed the old to make room for the new.
