Chemical peels are a safe and convenient way to rejuvenate your skin. Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes to produce healthy, glowing skin. There are three types of chemical peels, ranging from mild to strong.
TYPES OF CHEMICAL PEELS
AHAs are the gentlest of the three types of chemical peel. They consist of a group of glycolic, lactic and fruit acids that smooth and brighten skin by treating fine wrinkles, dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne. AHAs are typically applied once a week, or be mixed in a milder concentration with a cream or cleanser to be used daily. Treatment takes 10 minutes or less. This is the treatment for you if you are in a time crunch.
TCAs are commonly used for medium-depth peeling to treat fine surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes and pigment problems. TCAs are the preferred chemical solution for darker-skinned patients and may be used on the neck and other areas of the body.
Phenol, the strongest chemical peel, treats deeper skin problems such as coarse facial wrinkles, areas of blotchy or damaged skin caused by sun exposure or aging. The patient’s natural pigmentation is a factor in determining eligibility because phenol can lighten skin where it is applied, Phenol is used only on the face, as it may cause scarring elsewhere. Full-facial treatment can last an hour or two and recovery can take a few months, with possible permanent skin lightening and removal of freckles.
The skin is cleaned and the solution applied, which may cause a brief stinging sensation. The applied solution may need to be neutralized depending on the kind of chemical peel used.
AFTER THE PROCEDURE
Application of chemical peel can cause temporary stinging, redness, irritation and flaking or crusting. Patient’s are encouraged to moisturize to aid in the skin rejuvenation process, they are also instructed to use either sunblock or sun screen to protect from sunlight.
