General Information for Chemical peel treatment or skin derma peeling for acne scars

Chemical peeling treatmentis a fantastic skin treatment that can be used to improve skin texture and appearance by treating issues such as acne, freckles, rosacea, pigmentation and melasma amongst other things. Chemical peeling involves the use of chemicals to cause derma peeling wherein one can see visible regenerated new skin once the old skin peels off. The new skin is often many times smoother and a lot less wrinkled along with the fact that minor blemishes caused by acne, freckles and pigmentation are also no longer visible. Though the newly renewed skin is highly sensitive to the sun, at least for a short duration, there are hardly any other or longer lasting side effects of this skin treatment. Chemical peeling as a skin treatment has been used all over the world for at least the last 50 years.

Different Types of Chemical Peels
There are several different chemical peel types and some of them are as listed below:

  • Alpha Hydroxy Acid Peels: These are made up of naturally occurring compounds such as glycolic acid and carbolxylic acid. These are very mild peels that treat dryness, pigmentation, acne marks and fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Beta Hydroxy Acid Peels: These peels get deeper into the skin’s pores and give better results by removing dead skin cells and causing gentle exfoliation. An example of these peels is salicyclic acid.
  • Jessner’s Peels: These peels were also known as Coombe’s formula in older times and they are a combination of acids such as lactic acid and salicyclic acids. These peels are also mild in nature.
  • Retinoic Peels: These are peels go deeper and are a little more potent, so they are required to be done by plastic surgeons or trained dermatologists.
  • Trichloroacetic Acid Peels: These peels give medium to deep peeling and are preferred peels for darker skin. They can remove superficial scars and blemished and smooth our light wrinkles.
  • Phenol Peels: These are the strongest chemical peels and they even have some higher risks associated with them. These peels can even remove deep and coarse wrinkles and correct ageing signs.

More About Chemical Peels:

Chemical peels are undertaken on a ut-patient basis at a doctor's clinic or in medical spas. After the skin is thoroughly scleansed to remove excess oils, the chmical peel solutions are applied o the skin, taking care that the patient's hair and eyes are well protected. The choice of chemical peel depends on the skin problems that you want to target and the intensity of treatment required to treat the problems effectively. The short procedure may sting for about 5 to 10 minutes after application but the discomfort is mild and bearable. Deeper peels may require pain medications or the use of anesthetics.

After a chemical peeling session you will notice superficial skin peelimh. This is followed by scaling which lasts for about 7 days. Some people may even notice swelling and blisters that may last for about 14 days. Protection of skin against pollution, dirt, dust and sun is mandatory to prevent other complications. Once all the peeling is done away with, new albeit fragile skin can be noticed and this new skin is visibly rejuvenated. Follow up care is a must after a chemical peeling procedure.
