Are Gamers Good Candidates For A Chemical Peel?
As a gamer, you may spend the majority of your time indoors, sitting in the same position for hours. Contrary to previous medical theories, we now know that sitting in the same position, or doing repetitive motions actually causes tissue dehydration.. and so the appearance of your skin may deteriorate over time. It’s possible that a chemical peel can improve your skin if you’re a solid candidate for the procedure. The idea is for a chemical solution to be put on your skin which causes it to peel away similar to how a blister works. The new skin that grows to replace it is smoother and often less wrinkled that the skin that peels away, leading to a more youthful look.
So what can chemical peels help with? In general, they are used for:
– Treating wrinkles that have been caused by aging, sun damage and more.
– Reducing the visibility of some kinds of scars.
– Helping with specific types of acne.
– Getting rid of age spots, dark patches, freckles and some other kinds of skin discoloration.
– Improving the feel and look of the skin.
– Improving areas that have been damaged by excess sun exposure.
Following a chemical peel, your skin will be more sensitive to the sun temporarily. That means that wearing sunscreen after a peel is essential. If you work outside or can’t wear sunscreen on a regular basis, you may not be a good candidate for a chemical peel procedure. Any sunscreen used should say that it’s a “broad spectrum” product and for protecting against both UVA and UVB sun rays. Wearing a wide-brimmed hat after a facial chemical peel is also a smart idea.
In general, people with fair skin and light hair color are better candidates for chemical peel than people with darker complexions. In some cases, dark-skinned people can also benefit from peels, so ask your practitioner. Be aware, however, that chemical peels can cause uneven skin coloration in dark-skinned people.
Any place on your body where skin bulges, sags or has severe wrinkling is not a good choice for a chemical peel and instead might should be treated with cosmetic procedures of different kinds, like a facelift or laser resurfacing.
