Many skin problems are associated with an excessive build up of dead skin cells, which make the skin thick and dull, usually clogging the pores.
Skin peels can offer a revolutionary way to effectively treat ageing skin, acne, reduce sun damage and hyper pigmentation. This procedure can also help the skin to appear smoother, healthier, plumper and tighter.
What are chemical peels and how do they work?
The procedure involves the application of a chemical solution to the surface of the skin to produce the careful removal of its outer layers. The amount of skin removed will depend on the type of chemical used, the strength of this product and how long it is left on the skin.
Chemical peels are usually described according to how deep they work on the skin. Below are some examples of the type of peels and the kind of language you can expect to hear used when discussing chemical peels.
SUPERFICIAL PEELS ( Glycolic acid such as Neostratra glycolic acid peel)
Remove the outer layer of the skin or the “epidermal layers”.
SUPERFICIAL TO MEDUIM DEPTH PEELS ( such as NeoStrata peels)
Remove the skin slightly deeper than epidermal layer.
MEDIUM DEPTH PEELS ( Trichloroacetic acid such as Obagi Blue peel)
Remove both the epidermal layers and upper dermal layers.
