If You Don’t Like How the Skin on Your Face Feels to the Touch, a Chemical Peel Can Make All the Difference!

If you aren’t happy with your facial skin right now, you might consider having a chemical peel done to rejuvenate your appearance! This is a popular skin therapy that can cause derma skin wounds if you are not in the hands of a skilled skin expert like our dermatologists, Dr. Kraig K. Jenson, Byron Edwards or Dr. Devin Burr.

There are a variety of reasons for people to have a chemical peel done. Here are nine of them:

  1. Make your skin feel smooth to the touch
  2. Raise your skin’s cell turnover rate
  3. Increase the collagen levels in your skin
  4. Lessen fine facial lines
  5. Lower hyperpigmentation in your face
  6. Open and clean out the pores to reduce acne
  7. Give your face a more even-tone
  8. Give your face that youthful, dewy glow
  9. Reduce fine scars

For healthy skin, you should be fine having a chemical peel. But there are instances where a chemical peel should not be done. If you have a history of abnormal scarring on your skin or abnormal pigmentation, you are likely not a good candidate for this treatment. Likewise, if you have warts on your face, red hair with pale skin that freckles easily, or have had acne treatment done in the past year. And finally, if you are of Afro-Caribbean or Asian ancestry, your skin likely won’t tolerate the peel.

Before recommending a chemical, our experienced dermatologists will make sure it is safe for you to have one, and will adapt the formula so that it is just right for your skin. If you would like to learn more or to schedule a consultation with our dermatologists, please call our Dermatology Center team in Orem, Utah today at 801-224-5200. We look forward to helping you look (and feel) your best!
