How Can A Chemical Peel Benefit my Skin?

Featured Image

Chemical peels are effective in treating fine lines, age spots, pigmentation, and scars. They can even leave your skin brighter and more hydrated. But most medical-grade skin peels cause flakiness and can’t improve sagging skin.

At Alaska Med Spa & Chiropractic in Anchorage, AK, Melissa Mobley of Truuli Escape offers the PRX-T33 chemical peel for patients who want a fast and virtually painless way to improve their skin without experiencing uncomfortable peeling for days afterward.

Below, you’ll see how this unique skin peel can take years off your face.

Why get a chemical peel?

As we age, our skin loses elasticity. As a result, it starts to sag and gets thinner, revealing sun spots, age spots, and scars. Over time, skin also becomes dull and rough, and you might see areas with uneven texture or hyperpigmentation.

While we spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on beauty products, store-bought skin care only has so much power to tackle these issues. That’s why it’s more effective and economical to invest some of that money in medical-grade skin solutions, like chemical peels. At Alaska Med Spa & Chiropractic in Anchorage, AK, Melissa offers one of the most effective skin peels, and it won’t have you hiding your face as you wait for skin to flake off.

The goal of a chemical peel is to target the dermis, the layer under the outer layer of skin (the epidermis). That’s because the dermis is where skin problems really occur.

What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

Because medical-grade chemical peels target the skin on a deeper level, they can have long-term beneficial effects on the skin.

The benefits of Alaska Med Spa & Chiropractic’s skin peel solution include a reduction in:

  • Fine lines around the mouth

  • Mild wrinkling around the eyes

  • Acne scars (and certain types of acne)

  • Sun spots

  • Age spots

  • Mild scars

  • Freckles

  • Melasma (dark spots) caused by pregnancy or birth control

A skin peel can also improve the look and feel of skin by:

  • Adding deep hydration to depleted skin

  • Brightening dull skin

  • Improving skin texture

Why is PRX-T33 one of the best skin peel solutions?

Not all chemical peels are the same. For example, the PRX-T33 peel offered by Melissa at Alaska Med Spa & Chiropractic can do something most skin peels can’t do – tighten sagging skin.

The other significant benefit of PRX-T33 is that it targets just the dermis. That means you don’t have to worry about your skin flaking off for 2 – 5 days following treatment. There is very little downtime!

Medical-grade chemical peels contain an additive called trichloroacetic acid (TCA). This is a beneficial acid responsible for stimulating the growth of new cells. However, it has the side effect of causing the epidermis to peel afterward. PRX-T33 has a unique effect because it contains kojic acid and hydrogen peroxide to help temper the TCA. That way, the TCA can do its job without the flaking effect.
