How Chemical Peels treats Pigmentation?
An average, our bodies release forty thousand dead skin cells per hour. This process is important to keeping our body healthy, and it is how our skin is regenerating. This process of regeneration is slow down as we grow older.
We have a harder time losing the aged, dead skin as our bodies age Therefore, you can find that your acne scars, pigmentation are not fading as rapidly or as easily as they should. Okay, chemical peels are helping to accelerate this process.
Chemical peels sever the connection between old cells of the skin and allow them to shed more easily. New cells will expand once the old cells are shed. Chemical peels extract excessive damaged pigmented skin for areas of hyperpigmentation. This allows new and even toned skin to take its place, helping to fade more easily from hyperpigmentation.
