What is a Chemical Peel?
Chemical Peels are the process of removing the old skin to encourage the production of new skin cell. It is a controlled removal process that varies in strength; from the mild acid that peels the superficial layer of the skin to a Phenol peel that enters the profound layer of the skin. This process involves the application of a product on the entire layer of our face or a particular area.
What Are the Types of Chemical Peels?
What defines the various different types of chemical peels are the strength and ingredients. Their strength can also determine several factors such as their application or how long they should remain on the surface of your face. There are at least two types of Chemical peels; Light-Medium Peel and Deep Peel.
Light-Medium Peel- the Light-Medium Peel can be separate into two types; the AHA and the TCA. AHA is the more common superficial types of chemical peels such as the product that contains glycolic acid. On a mild case, a single application will give you a glowing and radiant skin appearance. A continuous treatment will provide you with an improved texture. Some of the chemical peel benefits include the reduction of the visibility of wrinkles, fine lines, and the sun-damaged skin. This type of peeling is usually done in the office of the surgeon. You will not be compelled to have anesthesia. TCA (trichloracetic Acid) on the other hand, is typically used for the clearing of pigmentation and fine wrinkles. It is also highly recommended when peeling the skin of a particular area due to their controlled bleaching impact.
