Chemical Skin Peels

Chemical peels improve the appearance of the skin making it brighter, more youthful and smoother by removing the skin imperfections. The process involves applying a chemical solution that peels off the damaged skin by causing blisters. The new skin is clearer, smoother and glowing than the older skin.
The procedure is usually done on face, neck and hands.

Why chemical peels is done

    Chemical peels are done to:
  • Reduce the fine lines and wrinkles on the facial skin, especially around the eyes and mouth.
  • Improve the sun damaged and aged skin.
  • Reduce the scars on the skin.
  • Improve the freckles, dark patches and age spots on the skin.
  • Make the skin smoother and brighter.

What you need to know and follow before getting the treatment

This procedure is usually very effective on fair-skinned and light-haired candidates. Here are some other important points that need your consideration:

  • Tell the doctor about history of any skin issues that may include scaring, cold sores or facial x-rays etc.
  • You may need to stop certain medications and start using Retin-A, glycolic acid or some other topical medication.
  • You may also need to have antibiotics or antiviral drugs.
  • Chemical peels are available in different types varying in strengths. Our doctor will determine the depth and type of the chemical peel depending on your skin condition and requirements that suits you best.

How you should take care of your skin after the treatment

Chemical peeling is an effective remedy for many skin problems but you can double its results by following some easy instructions and taking care of your skin. Here they are.

  • After the treatment, skin is more sensitive to the sun. Use sunscreen that protects your skin against UVA and UVB rays regularly.
  • Avoid going in the sunlight in the peak hours.
  • Try to cover your skin with an umbrella or hat.
  • Use the topical medications (if recommended any by the doctor) regularly.

How chemical peeling is done

This treatment is an outpatient procedure that may be done in few minutes. Here are the steps involved:

  • Firstly, the skin of the patient is cleansed thoroughly.
  • Then the selected chemical solution that may be glygolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, trichloroatic acid or carbolic acid is applied to our skin on small areas. This causes controlled injury to the skin leading to skin regeneration.
  • You may feel burning sensation on your skin during the treatment that lasts for few minutes only after the treatment. Using cold compresses help resolve burning and stinging sensation.
Some types of chemical peels can be purchased and administered without a medical license; however it is advised to seek professional help from a dermatologist before using any.
