Facial Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is an acid agent that is applied on the skin of your face, after which the top layer of the skin peels off eventually. The new skin is usually more even and smoother.

Chemical peels are done on the face and neck.

They are aimed at improving your skin's overall appearance and texture.

There are 3 different types of peels that you can get which are as followed:

Superficial Peel

Is the gentlest of the 3 types of peels which is just a mild acid that is used to penetrate only the top layer of your skin. This treatment is used to treat mild skin discoloration and slightly rough skin. This peel is also known as the lunchtime peel.

Medium Peel

The medium-strength facial peel will reach the middle layers of the skin and is exfoliated using acids like glycolic acid. This is a good treatment for use with fine lines, age spots, wrinkles, freckles, and skin discoloration.

Deep Peel

A deep skin peel is the strongest of all 3 treatments and uses an acid like trichloroacetic acid. This skin peel will go deeper and penetrate the middle layers of the skin. Deeper facial peel has a really good impact on your skin and it is also good for age spots and scars.

A skin peel is safe and really good to refresh the skin, it is very important to follow pre and post-peel instructions.

After a facial chemical peel, your skin will be a lot more prone to sun damage. So it is very important to protect your skin with a sunscreen of SPF 30 or above. Also, it would be a good idea to limit your exposure to the sun especially when the sun is at its strongest.

You may notice your face has redness and scaling after the treatment for about 3-7 days.

Chemical peels are a lot more than a skin exfoliator. They just don't remove dead skin cells, a chemical peel can also reduce fine lines that can be caused by sun damage. The procedure can help fade away age spots, acne scars, and dark patches.
