Have you ever felt like there is a more beautiful you just waiting to come out? Do you feel sometimes like you know you look better than what you see in the mirror? It’s not just about having self-confidence, but rather this idea that there’s an inner you, some kind of inner beauty, and that if you could just let it out, you would look how you want? That’s part of what our chemical peels can do. These peels can help get rid of the skin that’s holding you back, so you can reveal your true self to the world.

Chemical Peels: Removing the Dead Skin Cells

We all have dead skin cells all over our bodies. It might not necessarily show, but it can make us look a bit more aged than we’d like. You can try attacking these dead skin cells in a variety of ways. One of the most effective ways is our peels. They’re called “chemical peels” for a reason – because that’s what they do. They peel the dead skin cells off of your body. While that’s accurate, that also can make it sound like it takes more off of your body than what it actually does.


Instead, the peels simply remove the outermost layer of skin cells. What’s beneath is your newest skin. What’s beneath is your youngest skin, that hasn’t had to deal with outer environmental concerns or anything like that. For lack of a better phrase, there’s no “wear and tear” on this skin. It’s fresh, youthful, and ready. This skin is softer, with a more radiant glow. These peels simply remove the dead skin cells to reveal the masterpiece underneath.

Peel Benefits

Scars can be annoying or worse if you have them on your body. Scars are the kind of thing that many of us try to hide on our bodies so that others don’t notice them. Try as you might, if you have a scar, someone will see it eventually. If you have a scar, you might be tired of having to deal with questions about it. Or, you might just be done with worrying about if someone is going ask about your scar. These chemical peels can get rid of the scars. As they peel away the outermost layer of skin, they’ll peel away the scar as well.


One use for these peels that you may overlook is that they can be incredibly effective for clearing up a breakout. Many of us have acne breakouts and we’re not exactly teenagers anymore. Unfortunately, acne isn’t always left in our teenage past. You could try ointments, creams and other kinds of treatments to deal with your breakouts, but that doesn’t mean that they’ll be able to clear up the entire breakout. Moreover, they might not be able to clear up that breakout quickly.


For many of us in Southern California, every night is an adventure. Maybe you’re going out on a date with your special someone, perhaps you’re going out for a night on the town, or to see family or friends, or on a big business opportunity, or any number of other important events that you positively cannot have a breakout for. That’s one more area where these peels come in handy: they can break up a break out.


The Southern California sun is wonderful.  Even with the rainy season, it can feel like summer year-round sometimes. Over the years, over the endless summers, all of that sun can add up. Even if you do your best to take care of your skin, to treat yourself right and always wear suntan lotion, eventually some of that sun damage may creep in. Our peels can help with that, too. Sun damage can lead to many skin concerns, not the least of which is discoloration. As with so many other skin ailments, these peels can reduce or even in some cases remove that discoloration. The skin beneath it should be fresh and unmarked, giving you a whole new lease on life, skincare-wise.

Giving Back to your Skin

With these peels, it’s important to remember that they aren’t adding anything to your body. They aren’t forcing some kind of foreign substance into your body. Instead, they’re performing what’s basically a natural action. After all, the youthful skin that they expose is already in your body. As you’re reading this right now, this skin is just beneath the outermost layer. These peels simply clear it out of the way so that your real skin care can shine.


We know that many people come to us for these peels after skincare products stop working. We can’t tell you how many times someone has come to us saying: “I’ve tried every cream, every ointment, every gel there is. I want the chemical peels.” We’re able to provide that so that your skin can look how you want it to look. However, there’s an added benefit to this that many of our clients have told us about: some skincare products can become more effective after the peel.


This may sound shocking at first, or like it’s too good to be true, but if you think about it for a minute, it makes sense. So many of these creams, oils, ointments and more have to penetrate your skin to really get the job done. They have to be able to get into your skin so that they can do what it is they say they’ll do on their packaging.  As counterintuitive as it may seem, these products can be more effective after the peel, because the peel gets rid of some of the skin that was in their way.


Think of your fresh, youthful skin after a peel treatment: it’s like a blank canvas. It doesn’t have the markings, the imperfections, and the other concerns that your skin had before the treatment. Instead, you’ve literally wiped all of that away, so you can basically start anew. That’s what these peels can do. They can allow you to build a firm foundation for your skin, so that you can make your skin look how you want to now, going forward.


That’s why so many of our clients have found that their skincare treatments were more effective after the peels. Products that seemed like a waste of money because they were only able to offer a bit of potency can be highly effective after a peel. Instead of having to travel through layers of dead skin cells to be able to treat your skin, you’ve cleared them out of way. Now, the skincare products have a chance to keep your skin looking great between peel treatments.

Youthful Skin, Youthful Person

You’ve heard the phrase “you’re only as young as you feel.” Sometimes, it can seem like “you’re only as young as you look.” Depending on your genetics and lifestyle, you might look a bit older than you are or feel. That’s where this treatment comes in. It can clear away that which makes you look older. That way, you can have the kind of skin that matches you, and how you feel. These safe treatments will leave you looking younger and healthier while looking how you want.


These peels can help with wrinkle reduction as well. Of course, if you’ve gone through our site, you may have noticed that several of our treatments help with wrinkle reduction. This may be the right one for you. However, one of the other treatments may be more effective. This is why we tell our clients to consider scheduling a free consultation with us. At Divante, we’ll sit down with you and go over each of the different treatments available. That way, you can pick the one that’s best for your needs. Scheduling one of these consultations is easy: just call us at (818) 334-4737.
