Can Chemical Peels Fix Sunspots?

​​​​​After a Summer spent sunbathing, you may notice discolorations on your skin. Sunspots appear as flat, concentrated sections of brown coloring caused by exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun.

You probably don’t like seeing them when you look in the mirror. So why don’t you seek early consultations before they get worse? Generally, even little sunspots will grow bigger, so the earlier you sort out the issue, the less intervention you will need in the future.

Chemical peels are one of the viable options for getting rid of sunspots. They go beyond sunspot removal and give you a host of other benefits. Still not convinced? Below are four reasons to schedule a chemical peel treatment in Scottsdale and enjoy a flawless complexion.

Peels Give You a Smoother, Radiant Skin

First, we will clean your skin. The next step is applying chemical solutions such as carbolic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or lactic acid to the affected skin. These applications remove dead cells and shed the topmost skin layer.

In the meantime, the living cells below the skin stimulate the production of collagen. This, in turn, brings new, smoother skin that is flawless and radiant. What’s more, the skin-care products that you use will produce better results. Why? Because your new skin has no dead cells that hinder penetration and are thus more receptive. You might experience mild redness that can last for up to a week, but that should not be a source of concern.

Get Rid of Acne and Related Scars

The right peel, for example, salicylic acid, penetrates deep into the skin to clean out pores. At the same time, it wears down blackheads and pimple spots on the skin surface. The acid stays in the pores and keeps them clear to keep acne at bay.

Safe to Use, and You Can Customize

We can find the right chemical peel for you without exposing you to hyperpigmentation. According to new medical research, the combined use of different chemical solutions with low percentages produces better results with minimal irritation.

Your team at Natural Results Plastic Surgery & Spa may also mix their solutions to resolve specific problems. Vitamin C is often added to chemical therapies to address stubborn sunburns.

Better Melasma Control

There is no permanent cure for the persistent sun-triggered dark spots resulting from hormonal imbalances (associated with pregnancy and birth control pills). However, chemicals peels provide the best go-to solution. While laser therapies treat melasma with light and heat, dark brown pigments often recur a few weeks later. In the end, they only provide a reprieve after a major investment.

In contrast, optimal melasma treatment deploys a multidimensional approach. This includes the application of chemical solutions combined with strict sun protection.
