Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that can be applied to the face, hands, and neck. They’re used to improve the appearance or feel of the skin. During this procedure, chemical solutions will be applied to the area being treated, which causes the skin to exfoliate and eventually peel off. Once this happens, the new skin underneath is often smoother, appears less wrinkled, and may have less damage.

There are a number of reasons people may get chemical peels. They may be trying to treat a variety of things, including:
wrinkles and fine lines
sun damage
acne scars
uneven skin tone or redness

There are three different types of chemical peels that you can get. These include:
-Superficial peels, which use mild acids like alpha-hydroxy acid to gently exfoliate. It only penetrates the outermost layer of skin.
-Medium peels, which use trichloroacetic or glycolic acid to reach the middle and outer layer of skills. This makes it more effective for removing damaged skin cells.
-Deep peels, which fully penetrate the middle layer of the skin to remove damaged skin cells; these peels often use phenol or tricholoracetic acid.

-Chemical peels are great for improving the skin’s appearance.
-It can improve the look & feel of the skin from the first session itself.
-The new skin after the peel off is performed appears to be more smoother and firmer than before.
-Exfoliates the skin.
-Brighter and youthful skin after the treatment.

Post- treatment care
After a chemical peel procedure, you may need to cover the treated skin with a bandage as you will be asked to avoid the sun for several months. Apply the lotion or cream provided by the dermatologist.
