Types of Chemical Peels

If a person’s facial skin has been affected by exposure to the sun and other elements, it may get damaged. Aging also produces wrinkles and lines on the face. Acne leaves behind scars. Chemical peels can correct all these and other such problems of the skin. A chemical peel is used to correct the problems of the skin and restore confidence in the patient who may have been feeling less confident because of the appearance of the face.

The phenol is the strongest of the three chemical peels. It is used when people need a very deep peel. This is used to treat people who have badly damaged skin, such as very hard wrinkles, extremely blotchy skin or at times pre-cancerous growths. Since it is deep acting, the phenol peel might actually affect the pigment and cause some amount of lightening. It can also leave scars and other effects, if used other places aside from the face.

Chemical peels usually work best for individuals with fairer skin tones, although superficial and medium peels can work well on individuals with darker skin tones. Deep chemical peels are generally not given to individuals with darker skin tones because this procedure can actually bleach the skin. This bleaching can be permanent.

When we go out and get exposed to sunlight, the outer layer of our skin gets damaged and dead skin cells remain embedded on our skin, resulting from the dirt that gets stuck to the pores. Thus, as we grow old, the skin looks more dull and lifeless. When you add the acne scars, freckles and other facial blemishes, you really would like to have an option to restore that youthful glow that only movie stars seem to exude on screen, no matter how old or young they are.

The new skin that is revealed is usually smoother with less wrinkling then the skin that was initially treated. The new skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun, therefore you must stay out of the sun for a period of time to allow for proper healing. The new skin is just that, new, so it will be very sensitive – take good care of it.

There are so many types of chemical peels available today that it is very easy to be overwhelmed and confused when it comes to deciding which one to buy. The key to this problem is learning about your skin type and the different ingredients and kinds of kits in the market. Knowing which one to buy is important, though, because choosing a peel that is too strong for you, or not for your skin, might lead to undesirable results.

A chemical peel, aka chemexfoliation or derma-peeling, is exactly what the name implies: chemicals are put on the skin to make its outer layer peel off, or shed, thus revealing fresher, new skin underneath. The thought behind this treatment is that age, the sun, stress, genetics and the environment, not to mention a host of other factors, combine together to wreak havoc on our skin, which is most evident in its outermost layer.

This body treatment uses very good techniques that cause the dead skin to peel off. The skin texture that you achieve after the peeling process is very smooth and less wrinkled. There are various types of chemical peels that are available these days, some can be bought without a medical license while others require the help of professional plastic surgeons and dermatologist.

There are several different types of chemical peels, and AHA (alphahydroxy acid) peels are the mildest form of chemical peel, with the least recovery time involved. Sometimes doctors even recommend a face wash or cream containing AHA for a similar effect. AHA peels can be composed of glycolic, lactic, or fruit-based acids, and application generally lasts only 10 minutes at a time.
