Chemical Peel Treatments in Boston, MA
Our skin operates on an average, 27-day cycle of birth, death, and renewal. New skin grows to the surface, protects us for roughly a month, then grays and dies while newer skin rises up to take its place.
But as we age, this cycle can hit snags and the buildup of dead skin and debris can occur, preventing the healthy growth of newer, glowing skin. At Regeneris Medspa & Cosmetic Surgery, our chemical peels can clear the way by cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating the skin. Here’s how chemical peels contribute to a youthful appearance.
How Chemical Peels Work
Our skin is made up of three distinct layers—the epidermis (top), dermis (middle), and hypodermis (bottom). While the average facial addresses the top layer, additional measures are needed to probe deeper and clean more comprehensively, encouraging the healthier growth of new skin.
Chemical peels penetrate deep into the skin where a mixture of chemicals, hydrating agents, and exfoliating agents can do the most good. By clearing away harmful oils and toxins, chemical peels also clean out pores and have been shown to reduce the frequency and intensity of acne outbreaks. No matter your reason for seeking a chemical peel, the procedure can work wonders by encouraging greater production of natural healing agents and removing layers of dead skin so that new skin grows back brighter and better than before.
