chemical peelsAccording to the American Association of Plastic Surgeons, chemical peels were in the top five minimally invasive procedures in 2011. With celebrities and everyday citizens alike, sneaking into day spas like SKIN Medical Spa to get a chemical peel, it has some people wondering what the fuss is all about. If you are interested in getting a chemical peel but aren’t sure what the hype is all about, read on to learn more.

Boosts Collagen
If you look at fuller face actresses like Kate Upton, you may be wondering how they get that fuller, more youthful looking skin. And although there are many things to be attributed to a fuller face and more plump looking skin, the prevalence of collagen is likely one of the leading culprits. Collagen is what plumps up our skin and makes it look more youthful and radiant. And, the chemical peel process helps to boost your body’s natural production of collagen— leaving you with that Kate Upton worthy skin you’ve always desired.

Helps With Sun Spots
No matter what age you are, you can get freckles across your skin but the older you get, those once cute freckles suddenly turn into dreaded sun sports. If you have sun spots on your face, a chemical peel can help get rid of them? By targeting the top few layers of your skin and encouraging the production of new skin, your sun spots will slowly slough off and fade after a few chemical peels and treatments.

Reduces Wrinkles
Nobody wants to look into the mirror only to see a face full of wrinkles gazing back. If you have wrinkles on your face and want to get rid of them, you guessed it: a chemical peel can help. As the chemicals target the top layers of your skin, the appearance of wrinkles are diminished and the skin starts to look more rejuvenated and youthful.
