What is a Chemical Peel?

Posted on 19 November, 2015 at 19:55

What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical facial peels, also referred to as chemical resurfacing, are used to produce a controlled injury to the skin to promote the growth of new skin. Chemical peels have been around for hundreds of years from ancient Egyptians bathing in sour milk and old wine - that contained lactic and fruit acids that are still commonly acid used in mild chemical peels today to the current day facial peels performed in spas and in homes across the world. Skin peels are used to exfoliate and peel away the outer layers of skin to reveal a smooth, tight and more even toned complexion with a youthful radiant glow.

There are various types of acids used in chemicals peels such as glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), salicylic acid and various acid combinations are widely available for at home use. Most often, chemical peels are used on the face, but may also be used on the neck, chest.

There are two layers of the skin. The outer layer is called the epidermis and the inner layer, the dermis. Superficial peels (e.g. glycolic acid) produce very superficial injury, confined to the epidermis. Superficial peels can help improve conditions, such as acne and dyschromia. Deeper peels, (e.g. phenol peels) produce injury within the dermis and can reverse moderate-to-severe photo aging, wrinkles, acne scarring and pigmentation.

 

Skin Peel Benefits

Fine Lines

Facial peels may drastically reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and expression lines leaving skin smooth.

 

Sun Damage

UV rays not only affect our skin in ways we can't see, but they can also leave very visible issues that skin peels help make less noticeable.

 

Blackheads

Chemical peels can be very effective in removing and minimizing excess, stubborn blackheads by penetrating clogged follicles.

 

Clogged Pores

Chemical peels effectively remove dead skin that clogs & contributes to large sized pores that turn into blackheads & whiteheads.

 

Acne Marks

Skin peels can dramatically improve red, pus filled acne blemishes and improve the appearance of mild acne scars.

 

Age Spots

Various strength skin peels commonly result in a marked improvement of dark skin discoloration commonly referred to as age spots.

 

Hyperpigmentation

Chemical peels, especially AHA & Vitamin C peels can reduce discoloration, freckles & large dark spots leaving skin radiant.

 

Uneven Skin

Chemical peels improve overall skin texture and remove debris from the skin's surface
