This procedure uses a chemical solution, usually an acid, to peel away the top layers of the epidermis in order to improve conditions such as acne, irregular pigmentation or wrinkles.
Chemical peels have been in use for a number of years and are a highly popular way to improve the texture and look of skin. There are a wide variety of peels available, each with its own unique benefits as well as risks. Glycolic acid peels are also believed to stimulate the growth of collagen, a protein that helps give skin its structure. The loss of collagen due to aging and sun exposure is one of the factors involved in the formation of lines and wrinkles. Chemical Peel is useful for treating a variety of skin disorders, including photodamaged skin, hyperpigmentation, acne vulgaris, pilarus keratosis, rosacea as well as sun damaged skin.
All chemical peels involve applying a chemical solution to remove the outer layers of skin for a smoother skin to appear. The skin is then evenly pigmented and also glows. Each type works differently, and produces different results. In general, the stronger the chemical, the deeper the peel, and the more impressive the results. However, the deeper the peel, the more pain you are likely to experience and the longer the recovery time will be. Peels generally cause some flaking, redness and dryness.
