An Overview Of Chemical Peel Treatment

September 23, 2021

We all want flourishing and glowing skin. To achieve this, you need to develop a skincare routine, regardless of your skin type, that will help maintain your overall skin health. One treatment that accomplishes this best is chemical peels, also referred to as chemexfoliation or derma peeling.

It is a cosmetic technique that helps you look younger by reducing the indications of age on your face and can also be used on your neck and hands. It helps treat some types of acne and can enhance the appearance of minor scars too. Read on for more about chemical peels.

Types of Chemical Peels

Depending on your skin issues, you can select one of the three kinds of chemical peel treatments. These are

  1. Light or superficial peel –This type of peel takes out the outer skin layer and is best for treating acne, uneven skin tones, fine wrinkles, or dry skin.
  2. Medium chemical peel – It eliminates skin cells from the outer and upper-middle layer of your skin. This helps get rid of wrinkles, uneven skin tones, and acne scars. You’ll get your desired results by repeating this treatment several times.
  3.  Deep chemical peel – This peel type has a longer-lasting effect, so you don’t require repeated treatments. It’s ideal for scars, extensive wrinkles, scars, or damaged skin cells.

 

Benefits of Chemical Peels

Though chemical peel treatment may not tighten your sagging skin or eliminate deep wrinkles and scars, it is beneficial as it can

  • Help to get rid of hyperpigmentation, including skin discoloration, melasma, and mild scarring
  • Boost your skincare products
  • Reduce acne scars and effects of the sun
  • Improve skin redness or uneven skin texture
  • Brighten dull complexion
  • Treat fine lines or wrinkles
