Posted by molanparker on July 25th, 2016

Chemical peels have been popular as a skin rejuvenating treatment since past many decades. There are a variety of chemical skin peel treatments that range from the ‘lunch time’ peels with subtle effects to the most aggressive peels that remove the deeper skin layers having the most dramatic effect. All kinds of peels injure skin but at varying depths. The deeper peels have more profound and dramatic results as compared to the superficial skin peels.

Chemical skin peel eliminates the dead and damaged superficial skin layer to the middle dermis. The procedure involves an application of a chemical peeling agent to the skin surface which exfoliates the sun damaged and a thick layer of dead skin cells. It may also stimulate the production of natural collagen for skin tightening and firm.

Peeling solution generally have Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) or Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA), Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or Phenol which works as skin exfoliating agent. The chemical skin peels are categorised on the basis of their concentration and the resulting peel depth which varies from superficial to medium and deep depth skin peels. The results depend on the concentration and the depth of the performed chemical peel.

The superficial chemical skin peel ( low concentration of AHA or BHA)  provides subtle improvements as compared to that of medium or deep peels.

Benefits of chemical skin peels

The chemical skin peel treatment offers a multitude of benefits for improving a number of skin conditions and complete skin rejuvenation.

•    It makes your skin visibly smooth and fresh.
•    The treatment helps to improve the signs of ageing, sun damaged skin, enlarged pores, acne and acne scars and pigmentation.
•    By removing the dead and damaged skin layers, it improves the texture of skin.
•    It makes the skin brighter, clearer and smooth as the treatment stimulates natural collagen production and regenerate healthy skin cells.
•    It improves the uneven skin tone and discolouration.
•    There is a variety of skin peels available that are tailored for different skin types and to address various skin issues.
•    Most chemical skin peels are safe and effective to use on skin.

Whichever peel treatment is recommended for your skin type, it is always advisable to expect realistic outcomes from the treatment. Chemical peels are not meant to eliminate or lessen the appearance of blood vessels, keloid scarring and they do not work as facelift treatment.

They can make the skin smooth, fade away the age spots and improves the sun damaged skin and makes general improvements in the surface of skin giving it a youthful and fresh appearance. If you have the skin peel treatment on a regular basis, it may improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Superficial skin peels have fewer side effects which include redness, mild swelling, mild skin flaking and increased sensitivity to the sun rays. Medium and deep skin peels can cause significant side effects such as scarring, skin infection, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and cold sores. Therefore, the chemical peel should only be undertaken by an expert and experienced dermatologist or cosmetic practitioner with caution.
