How to choose a Chemical Peel?

We all know that peelings make our skin look flawless, but how do we know which one to choose? There are many kinds of peeling, including mechanical, enzyme, and chemical; in this case, we will focus on Chemical peeling. This is a simple technique to improve the skin by removing the superficial layer and repairing the deeper layers.

  1. Improves hyperpigmentation like melasma and lentigo and makes skin tone more even; all of these will depend on how strong the chemicals used
  2. Improves deepness of wrinkles
  3. Tightens skin
  4. Reduce scarring, acne marks, and stretch marks
  5. Control excess oil and inflammation related to acne
  6. Improves dark circles
  7. Gives moisture to the skin

Not all of them are the same; products penetrate the skin in different way and will treat different conditions uniquely. Superficial peels are recommended to treat acne, oily skin, pigmentation, and dark circles. Medium depth peels improve wrinkles, deep pigmentation, precancerous lesions, stretch marks, and scarring. On the other hand, skin problems that involve the deeper layers of skin should be addressed with Deep peels.

Before or during the treatment, you might feel an itchy, tingling sensation, and experience redness on the face; if you do deep peeling, your skin will become lighter. You can experience some flaking, but this is entirely normal; it is just the skin renewing itself.

It is a very delicate treatment, so you should avoid exercising for at least two days, protect your skin from the sun, and follow all the doctor’s recommendations. Usually, specific topical products are indicated during the following days.

Having regular peeling will improve your skin’s overall look; you can also have peeling  during specific seasons of the year. This will help you prevent that oily or dry skin throughout those months.  Also, chemical peelings are useful to prevent skin cancer; the TCA can remove precancerous lesions. Regular peelings will also increase the natural defense of skin and prevent and repair sun damage.
