LOOK YOUNGER WITH CHEMICAL PEELS
We all will experience the signs of aging from different factors including pollution, sun exposure, and smoking. Chemical peels can also improve:
- Discoloration, such as liver and age spots, and freckles
- Acne and acne scars
- Rough skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damaged skin
Chemical peels use different substances and solutions to remove different layers of skin. The different types are based on how deeply the peel will affect the skin and the type of chemicals used. Essentially, there are three types of chemical peels:
- Superficial or light peels that utilizes the mildest form of solutions and are effective on all skin times.
- Medium peels go deeper into the skin’s layers. Trichloraecetic acid is the main agent used for these types of peels, which essentially cause a mild second-degree burn.
- Deep or heavy peels penetrate several layers of the skin, again causing a second-degree burn. These peels use phenol. These peels are not used on darker skin types, as they bleach the skin.
THE CHEMICAL PEEL PROCEDURE
The skin will be cleaned, and the chemical applied with a brush, gauze or similar applicators. Depending on the chemical and deepness, it is left on for several minutes. Water or alcohol is then used to neutralize the chemical reaction.
Recovery and aftercare will depend on the type of peel you received. You will be regularly cleansing your skin to promote healing, as well as moisturizing. You should also avoid sun exposure. Sunscreen will be required after the peeling has stopped, as the new, exposed skin is more easily damaged by the sun.
If you think you would like to see the results of a chemical peel, consult with a knowledgeable, experienced esthetician to discuss the options that will best suit you.
