Could these facial masks give you younger-looking skin or could they leave something to be desired?

You’ve seen them in magazine ads and TV commercials. Maybe your friends have even tried one, but what is all the hype about peel-off facial masksfacial masks? Could they actually improve the appearance of your skin or are there other treatment options that are more beneficial? Are they actually safe to use on all skin types? Our Baton Rouge and Prairieville, LA dermatologist, Dr. Ann Zedlitz, weights in on these at-home cosmetic treatments.

When you think of peels you most often think about the procedures performed in the dermatologist’s office that offers great results but also often requires a recovery time. Perhaps you’re trying to get vibrant results but without the downtime. We understand! Of course, this may mean that you are considering a peel-off facemask.

Yes, peeling off one of these masks can feel completely rewarding. You may also feel as if you are peeling away all those impurities, blackheads, dead skin and other issues along with it, but in most cases this is just hype. Of course, before you start to think that this trendy mask may be worthless there is a benefit to using them.

Some of these masks contain wonderful ingredients and antioxidants that your skin just loves to soak up and can improve your skin for the long run. If you choose a peel-off mask that contains more plant and vitamin-based ingredients you may find that they do improve skin damage caused by environmental toxins, pollutants, etc. So these masks are safe for most skin types, but if you are in doubt don’t hesitate to ask us before adding an at-home mask to your regime.

It’s important to note that you won’t look in the mirror and immediately see a major difference after a peel-off mask. While it can provide your skin with benefits they aren’t ones you will see. If you are looking for a way to target wrinkles, lines, acne scars, uneven skin tone and sunspots then you’ll want to talk to our Baton Rouge and Prairieville skin doctor about other cosmetic treatments that will offer more immediate and visible results than these at-home facial masks.

If you want to get a facial treatment that will offer amazing benefits and improve the appearance of your skin, then it’s time you talked to our skincare experts at Z Aesthetic Dermatology in Baton Rouge and Prairieville, LA about the treatments we offer.
