Back in the day, chemical skin peels were all the rage! Everyone was lining up at their local dermatologist, to have their dead skin cells removed from the top layer of their skin which is not quite as painful as it sounds, we promise! The process, which takes around 30 minutes, causes dead skin cells to shed or flake off, eventually revealing brand-new, beautiful skin underneath. And if you are on the fence about whether you should jump on this trend (but not really a trend since they’ve always been a recommended dermatological procedure), keep reading for three reasons why a chemical peel might be just the thing you’re looking for!
Bright, Beautiful Skin
Like we said, skin peels remove those dull, dead skin cells, revealing fresh, new skin in its place. Skin peels also help supercharge your skin cell growth cycle which can slow down as you get older. Investing in regular skin peels, gives your skin greater durability leaving your skin supple, soft and free of blemishes.
It Helps Your Products Work Better
After spending your hard-earned money on high quality skincare products, you probably want them to work right? Well, skin peels don’t just help give your skin a big boost, they also help remove build-up and congestion on your skin, letting your products get deep into your skin so they can do their job!
Evens Up Skin Pigment
For those afflicted with melasma, hyperpigmentation and other types of discoloration such as those resulting from age spots and acne scars, skin peels could be the answer. Skin peels offer more bang for your buck than other treatments designed to deal with pigment issues because the results are much more acute and long-lasting.
Younger, Better Skin Beautiful Skin
Looking younger is much easier when you are exfoliating weekly. Have you ever noticed why estheticians have such beautiful skin? It’s because they are constantly exfoliating. Your skin cannot come to the surface without properly exfoliating the dead skin cells. Get younger, vibrant and radiant skin with a good exfoliator.
PriyanaMD created a cross over MegaStar peel that exfoliates and lightens skin. It is used in Aesthetician offices and can also be used at home. VersaPeel® is a gentle, yet intense and effective, no-downtime at-home peel. This micro-exfoliation technology helps to reduce signs of sun damage, dull and uneven skin tones, scars, pigmentation, blemishes, and enlarged pores. Formulated with a proprietary blend of acids and skin lighteners it helps reveal clear, radiant, and glowing skin. VersaPeel® is a Makeover in a Bottle® formulated with Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydrozy Acids and skin lighteners which are the fastest way to achieve beautiful skin. Adding VersaPeel to your regimen leaves skin looking spotless, lineless and flawless…. and is a vital component to any good skincare regimen.
VersaPeel uses Microflake® Technology that mimics a medium-intensity peel, while hyperlapsing 30-min peel into under 5 min with micronized shedding of dead skin cells. This proprietarty formula exfoliates the stratum corneum, the very outer of skin that is comprised of 3-4 layers of dead cells. Once applied, the gel desquamates in Microflake “non visible” (exfoliates/sloughes) and stimulates the young complexion lying just beneath the surface. As we age, cell sloughing becomes more difficult, resulting in skin that appears dull, thicker and less toned. Exfoliation is vital to skin health and beautiful skin. Removing this build-up of dead, damaged cells stimulates the regeneration of new cells, improving the skin’s appearance, feel and texture.
