Various skin friendly acids like Salicylic Acid, Glycolic acid and Lactic acid is used which penetrates into the deeper layers of your skin and removes the top layer of the skin and promotes the production of elastin and collagen. The treatment will leave a radiant glow on your skin by eliminating dead dry skin cells.
The chemical peel minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and freckles. The peel breaks up the excess melanin and provides a more natural looking skin tone. A chemical peel can also be used in the prevention and treatment of acne and on areas of sun-damaged skin that might contain pre-cancerous cells.
Detailed cleaning is the first step. Later, the acid will be applied to the skin and allowed to penetrate where the peel will be then neutralized and removed with an alkaline solution or water after some time. Post treatment, the skin will have a slight pinkish tint with a cream being applied immediately. A tingly sensation followed by the treatment is very normal. Such problems can be resolved with medication.
The patients can see the results after the first peel. Improved texture and a rejuvenated appearance for their skin is the upcoming result in the next stages. A chemical peel is safe for all skin tones and skin types.
Usually, the very first peel would be less intense with little or no burning effects. The patient would go for multiple peels only if it is recommended by the doctor. Following the recommended steps by the dermatologist/ cosmetologist is very important during pre and post treatment sessions.
On the day of your treatment, avoid using any other product which are not recommended by the doctor. For the next 24 hours, do not go for Gym or any other physical exercises. Because increased sweat can cause skin irritation due to the growth of bacteria. In case of any break outs, do not panic because chemical peel helps to cleanse the impurities at bay. Use the recommended products by your dermatologist/ cosmetologist.
