How does chemical peel help to improve youthfulness?

Date :13-Jan-2020

Peel away the imperfect skin

A spotless and beautiful skin would indeed make anyone look younger and better. The hectic lifestyle and pollution makes the skin dull or tired and gets wrinkled, which would destroy the youthfulness. The advancement in cosmetic treatments would help retain the youthfulness with chemical peels.

Chemical peel

A chemical peel is nothing but a technique that is used to retain the smoothness of the skin and helps to improve the texture of the skin. The doctor would apply a chemical solution to the skin that would cause controlled exfoliation of the dead skin layer of the skin. New skin will be generated after the peel, which will be smoother, even-toned, less pigmented, and less wrinkled than the old skin.

Types of chemical peels

A chemical peel can be used for face, neck, and hands. The skin would feel a lot better after a chemical peel compared to the previous or the old skin. There are various types of chemical peel based on the depth of exfoliation they cause, such as:

  1. Superficial or lunchtime peel - this peel would be used to exfoliate the outer layer of the skin. Usually, alpha hydroxy acids and salicylic acid will be used to peel off the outer layers.
  2. Medium peel - the middle and the outer layers of the skin will be removed, and glycolic acid is mainly used to treat the damage. Medium peel would help improve wrinkles, age spots, face lines, and skin discoloration.
  3. Deep peel - this would completely penetrate the middle layer of the skin. This would remove the dead skin layer and the damaged deeper layers of the skin. Usually, the doctor would perform deep peel on the face that would help to transform the texture of the skin. This helps to remove the age spots, freckles, and scars.

Effect of a chemical peel

The effect of chemical peel would vary for every type of chemical peel treatment. Superficial or light chemical peel would last for nearly 5 weeks. It is insisted that the patients have the treatment every 2 to 5 weeks to achieve the desired results. The medium peel would last for about 3 months. The doctor would recommend the patient to perform medium peel maybe after 3 to 9 months. The deep chemical peel can be performed only once.
