What Is a Derma peel?
A derma peel is a form of microdermabrasion treatment that is used to improve the texture and tone of the skin, leaving it looking brighter and feeling smoother. It is often performed by a dermatologist as an in-office treatment that is relatively quick. A derma peel uses a combination of a microscopically abrasive substance passed over the skin as an exfoliant and a vacuum to apply pressure to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. As we age, our collagen production naturally starts to slow down, particularly once we turn 30. Once it slows down, we start to see wrinkles and fine lines appear on different areas of our faces. The derma peel procedure can help to minimize the appearance of these signs of aging by using our natural collagen production to heal our own skin. By stimulating the collagen production through the derma peel process, our skin will work to refresh itself through new, younger cells created by the collagen. It can take several treatments to see visible results as it takes time for the skin to build new cells that get pushed to the outer layer of the face.
What does a derma peel do?
A derma peel stimulates the body’s collagen production in the area being treated. This is done through a microscopically abrasive substance used to exfoliate the skin, as well as a vacuum type device to apply pressure and stimulate the collagen production below the skin’s surface. The collagen will work to repair the skin from the exfoliated procedure, leaving fresh, youthful looking skin in its place. It may take multiple procedures to see visible results as the process of skin healing and rejuvenation take time. As the skin naturally heals itself, and as a result of the skin naturally shedding off to reveal new skin underneath, the new, younger looking skin will be revealed. This new, fresh skin will be smoother and brighter, with improvements to the texture and tone. Derma peels can be used on a number of issues affecting the appearance of the skin and your dermatologist can help you determine if this is the right treatment for your unique case.
What skin problems are treated by a derma peel?
Dermal peels, like other types of chemical peels, are primarily used for the treatment of signs of anti-aging such as wrinkles and fine lines. Derma peels can also be used to treat other skin imperfections related to the tone and texture of the skin, such as acne scars, stretch marks and dark spots. The natural rejuvenation of the skin through the stimulation of collagen production will reveal fresh, new, younger looking skin that is smoother and brighter with improvements to the texture and color tone. Your dermatologist can help you determine if a derma peel is the right option for you and your skin condition. They will have a vast knowledge in the options out in the market for minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, acne scars, age spots, dark spots and stretch marks, as well as any other skin imperfections.
How Does a Derma Peel Work?
A derma peel works as a two-step process with the first step being completed by exfoliating your skin to loosen any dead skin cells and the second step using a small vacuum-type device built into the same unit as the exfoliator that then sucks up the dead skin cells. The exfoliation not only loosens the dead skin cells, but it also stimulates the production of collagen under the skin’s surface. The increased collagen will work hard to build new skin cells that will eventually get to the surface of the skin, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion. Wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks, acne scars, dark spots and other skin imperfections will be minimized with this new youthful-looking skin.
