Chemical peels

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peeling (or chemical peel as it is simply referred to) is a safe and effective procedure designed to gently exfoliate or remove the dull or pigmented upper layers of one’s skin and reveal fresh new skin with even skin tone and enhanced texture.

While the word “peel” may seem scary to some, it simply refers to the falling off or elimination of the problem skin layers that are causing the underlying skin condition. It is one of the safest and widely used cosmetic procedures used to treat and resolve skin problems.

A chemical peel helps in greatly reducing and even eliminating certain skin problems like acne, pigmentation, wrinkles and the effects of sun damage.

Chemical peels can be broadly classified into 3 types:

1) Light or superficial chemical peel: A light peel is designed to work on or remove only the uppermost layers of skin. It typically involves a very mild peeling agent and is recommended for sensitive skin types.

2) Medium chemical peel: A medium peel is designed to go deeper than a mild peel but gently remove the buildup of oils, discolouration and spots. This is typically used for most skin types.

3) Deep chemical peel: This peel is designed to go deeper than the medium peel and reverse the effects of scarring and age lines. This type of peel may cause some discomfort and the use of anaesthesia is generally involved.

What parts of the body can a chemical peel be used for?

While chemical peel treatments for the face are more popular, a chemical peel can be administered on different parts of the body for e.g. the back, chest, arms, underarms and legs. In this case, the peel is normally referred to as a body peel or body chemical peel.

Body peels can provide amazing results when treating dull skin and bring back that healthy and vibrant skin tone hidden below layers of damaged or dull skin.

What happens during a chemical peel?

Prior to the procedure, our dermatologist will have examined you to determine the best possible mode of treatment and type of peel to be used.

During the peel, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed or degreased. After cleansing is complete, our experienced dermatologist will apply the mild peeling solution to the affected areas using a brush, cotton swab or pad. The solution may be applied in multiple layers depending on the type of the peel and the assessment of the dermatologist.

Once application of the peel is complete, you will be closely monitored for your skin’s reaction to the peel. Factors such as discomfort, redness and the appearance of frosting (whitening of the skin) will be constantly assessed to ensure the desired result.

After the peel solution has been applied for the determined amount of time, the peeling solution will be carefully removed or neutralized with a neutralizing solution or water.

After treatment is complete, your skin will be gently moisturized and if required, a cool compress may be applied depending on the type of peel and this will be followed up with a lotion or cream to soothe the skin.

What must I do after getting a chemical peel?

· After treatment, use cold water when washing your face. Cold water helps soothe skin irritations if any. Warm or hot water can cause irration and it is best avoided.

· Keep your skin hydrated by moisturizing frequently with a good quality moisturizer. This will aid healing and skin repair.

· Use only a mild soap or facial cleanser for the next few days when washing your face.

· Try and avoid sun exposure to the extent possible. Use an SPF 30 or higher sunscreen to protect against harmful UV rays.

· Avoid intense workouts and hot showers/baths, as profuse sweating may damage the skin that has recently been treated.

    I had visited and got treatment from two renowned skin clinics for pico laser and LHR before coming to Dr. Juvitha’s clinic but did not have good experience. So, I was skeptical before coming here. But I have been very satisfied with the overall services . I am seeing significant improvement in my scars. Plus the price range is quite reasonable when I compare to other skin clinics. Dr. Juvitha listens the concerns very patiently and she makes sure to check the progress at each visit and answers each and every doubt The site staff is very well trained in their skills and hygiene. Special thanks to Deepika to perform the treatment process vigilantly
