What Is a Chemical Peel?

A Facial Chemical Peel is a process by which the top layer of damaged skin is removed by using a chemical application. Afterwards, when the skin renews itself, its appearance seems smooth and clear.

What Can a Chemical Peel do?

A Chemical facial peel improves and smoothes the texture of facial skin by removing its outer layers that have been damaged by strong sun light, uneven pigmentation, and scarring due to accidents or illness. As its name indicates, it involves using a chemical application to peel away the outer layers of the skin.

What Are The Different Types of Chemical Peels?

?Alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) ? These are the gentlest of the peel formulas and are used to remove fine wrinkling, dry areas, uneven pigmentation, and acne. AHAs include glycolic, lactic, or fruit acids. Several peels may be needed to get the needed effect.
?Trichloroacetic acids (TCAs) ? For a stronger peeling, TCAs are used. These peels remove surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes, and pigment problems. They can be used on the neck and other body areas too. For the results to last for a longer period, the process has to be repeated several times.
?Phenol ? This is the strongest of all the chemical peels and is used to remove strong lines and wrinkles on the face, sun-damaged skin, and pre-cancerous growths. The type of skin pigmentation you have would decide whether you are the right candidate for phenol treatment since it can lighten the treated areas drastically. Hence, dark-skinned people should not undergo this treatment. Also, it is not advisable for heart patients to have the phenol peel. Complete recovery may take months, but the results last long too.
?Chemical Facial Peels b-LIFTx ? This new formulation of salicylic acid is used to smoothen out the fine lines and very small imperfections on the skin?s surface. After sloughing off the dead outer layer of the skin, this procedure is supposed to stimulate new, healthy, living cells to the surface. It takes a very short time to experience the chemical peel working on the skin.
