A chemical peel involves the application of a solution to the face or specific areas to remove the skin’s top, most damaged layers, allowing newer, healthier skin to emerge.
Chemical peels come in a range of strengths, Peel solutions may contain alpha hydroxy acids, tricholoracetic acid (TCA) more superficial peels like a glycolic acid peel. Several light to medium-depth peels can often achieve similar results to one deeper peel treatment, with less risk and shorter recovery time.
A TCA peel is often used for the treatment of wrinkles, areas of pigmentation, and skin blemishes. Many patients benefit from having TCA applied on the face, neck, and other areas that have been exposed to the sun. For spot peeling of limited areas, including around the mouth or eyes, TCA peels are often preferred because they have less bleaching effect.
Glycolic peels are recommended to shrink pores and improve the overall look of skin on your face and neck. Made up of a derivative of sugar cane, glycolic acid peels are a medium-grade form of chemical peel, targets the epidermis of your skin rather than penetrating down to the deeper layers.
Glycolic acid peels can help to shrink the appearance of pores. Pores appear enlarged when they are clogged with dirt and bacteria, resulting in blackheads. During a glycolic acid peel, chemicals seep into the epidermis and remove the dead skin cells on the surface. The dirt and bacteria that can clog pores is loosened, which makes the pores look smaller.
Chemical peels can treat the following skin conditions:
Improves sun damage.
Improves fine lines and wrinkles.
Evens skin tone.
Improves appearance of acne scars.
Superficial facial scars from a past injury.
Releases and dissolves dead skin cells – clearing up blocked pores and blackheads.
