If you have aging skin, acne scars, crow’s feet or sun damaged skin then a chemical peel will most likely be the perfect solution for you. So what is a chemical peel? It is a technique that is used to try and improve the appearance of your skin on the face, neck and even the hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin and this causes it to exfoliate and peel off. The new skin is rejuvenated and it is much smoother as well. The new skin is more sensitive to the sun but there are three types of peels available.
There are a couple of chemical peels available. There is the superficial peel, and this normally uses alpha-hydroxy acid. This penetrates the outer layer of the skin and it also helps to exfoliate it as well. This is great if you want to improve skin discoloration and it is great for rough skin as well.
With a medium peel, glycolic acid is applied and it helps to penetrate the middle layer of the skin. This helps to remove the damaged skin cells and this also helps to improve aging spots, fine lines and even wrinkles. On top of this, it can also help you to make sure that you get rid of some skin growths as well.
Next, you have the deep peel. This is normally used phenol or Tricholoracetic acid. This penetrates the middle layer and this removes the damaged skin cells as well. It will help to remove age spots, moderate lines, freckles and shallow scars as well. You will see a dramatic improvement but this can normally only be done once so it doesn’t damage your skin in the long run.
