Real Questions, Real Answers From Dr.Benchetrit – Chemical Peels…how Often Should I Get Them

Hi, I am a 27 year old male with combination skin and a few old acne scars (not very visible). I am kind of going through a phase, I am beginning to see my skin a little more loose on my face and I am wondering if chemical peels could help “rejuvenate” my face a little, just to give it a little more glow. :)) I’ve heard that chemical peels are not very good because they age your skin faster, is that true? And if I get them, how often should I get them. What would be recommended at my age?

Frequency of chemical peels

Chemical peels are a great way of maintaining a smooth and healthy skin. It helps accelerate the regeneration of skin cells, a process that slows with age. On a healthy skin with no particular concerns, I recommend doing a peel every 2 t 3 months. Using appropriate skin care at home will support what is accomplished in-clinic. This period of time is also when most patients are due to have their skin reanalyzed and skin care routines tweaked; needs change dramatically from season to season. The skin may look more wrinkled or dehydrated for up to 2 weeks post-peel because of the skin cells flaking or trying to detach themselves. A good exfoliation or “gommage” a few days after the peel will speed up the process and get your skin glowing faster.”
