Skin peels are nothing new. In fact, Cleopatra was said to take baths in sour milk to care for her skin, which was an ancient version of a peel. Sour milk contains lactic acid, which is actually still used in some modern skin peels – although the modern versions smell a whole lot better! With this treatment, the famous beauty kept her skin looking youthful, prompting others to comment on how she seemed to defy aging.
As a we age, fine lines and wrinkles may begin to develop on the face. We may also start to notice dark “sun spots” or other signs of sun damage. While you can’t literally turn back the clock, you can improve these signs of aging and rejuvenate your face, so you look years younger.
One effective way to do this is with a skin peel. A skin peel is simply a skin mask which is applied to the face for a defined period of time and then removed. The mask contains rejuvenating compounds. These exfoliate the outermost layer of dead skin, revealing the younger, brighter skin underneath. At the same time, skin peels stimulate the skin underneath to renew itself, which leads to the skin looking tighter and firmer.
Effective Anti-aging Treatment
Skin peels are a highly effective anti-aging treatment, helping to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage. But that’s not all they can do. Peels can also be used for skin that’s acne-prone and oily. By removing the outer skin layer, many of the bacteria and debris that cause acne are also removed. As a result, the skin is left cleansed, and much less likely to develop new acne spots.
At FH Medical, we offer several different types of skin peels. This ensures that we’ll have the right peel for each person’s needs. Some people need only a superficial peel, targeting the outermost layer of skin, while others need a medium or deep peel, which can target problems in deeper layers of the skin. You can talk to our expert medical esthetic staff about which skin peel would be best for your skin. With a skin peel applied in our serene space, you’ll reveal the radiance within.
