Improve the Look of Your Skin With a Chemical Peel
When you get a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to your skin which effectively makes it “blister” and peel. Just like after any kind of burn (like a sunburn), the new skin is smoother and less wrinked than the old skin. Typically, chemical peels are used on the face, neck and hands, but other areas can be treated as well, depending on your condition. Some conditions chemical peels can treat include fine lines around the eyes or mouth, wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging, improvement in the appearance of mild scars, certain kinds of acne, reduction of the appearance of age spots & freckles and just generally improve the look and feel of your skin.
Why we Like the Retamax Chemical Peel
The Retamax Chemical Peel is part of the Zo Skin Care line created by Dr. Obagi. Retamax uses an innovative micro emulsion technology that blends a potent Retinol (Vitamin A) with plant stem cells and antioxidants to help reverse the signs of aging and helps to prevent future damage. Retamax also helps trigger the natural formation of collagen and aids in the restoration of your skin barrier by increasing the production of hyaluronic acid, a vital component related to your skins hydration.
After a chemical peel, skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun, so wear sunscreen every day. It should say “broad-spectrum” on the label, meaning it protects against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. A sunscreen containing a physical block is actually the best. A physical block is either Zinc or Titanium based like our Elta Sunscreen. Even with wearing sunscreen, you should still limit your time in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and wear a wide-brimmed hat.
