Chemical Peel

Chemical Peel

  A chemical peel is a process that involves applying a chemical solution to the skin and removing the top layers. The regenerated skin is smoother. If you have a light or medium peel, you may need to repeat the treatment to achieve the desired results.

Why You Need Chemical Peel:

  A chemical peel is a type of skin resurfacing treatment. You can get a chemical peel in one of three depths, depending on the difficulties you’re trying to solve with the process.

Light Chemical Peel

  The outer layer of skin is removed with a gentle (superficial) chemical peel (epidermis). Fine wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone, and dryness are all treated with it. Every two to five weeks, you can get a little peel.

Medium Chemical Peel

  A medium chemical peel eliminates skin cells from the epidermis as well as sections of the top middle layer of your skin (dermis). It helps with wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. To attain or maintain the desired affect, you may need to repeat the procedure.

Deep Chemical Peel

  A deep chemical peel eliminates considerably more skin cells. For deeper wrinkles, scars, or precancerous growths, your doctor may prescribe one. To receive the maximum effect, you won’t need to repeat the procedures.

 Before and After Chemical Peel You Need To Take Care Of Few Things which are As Follows

1 – Take antiviral medication                         2 – Use a retinoid cream

3 – Use a bleaching agent                               4 – Avoid unprotected sun exposure

How the Procedure will be done:

Light Chemical Peel

  Your doctor will apply a chemical solution containing glycolic acid or salicylic acid to your skin with a brush, cotton ball, gauze, or sponge. The skin that has been treated will begin to whiten.

While the chemical solution is on your skin, you may experience slight stinging.

To remove the chemical solution from the treated area, your doctor will apply a neutralizing solution or wash.

Medium Chemical Peel

  Your doctor will apply a chemical solution containing trichloroacetic acid, sometimes in combination with glycolic acid, to your skin with a cotton-tipped applicator or gauze. The skin that has been treated will begin to whiten.

Your doctor will apply cool compresses to the treated skin after a few minutes. To keep your skin cool, you can be provided a hand-held fan. However, no neutralizing solution is required.

For up to 20 minutes, you may experience stinging and burning.

Deep Chemical Peel

  You’ll be given intravenous (IV) fluids, and your heart rate will be closely monitored.

Your doctor will apply carbolic acid (phenol) to your skin with a cotton-tipped applicator. Skin that has been treated will begin to turn white or grey.

To keep your exposure to phenol to a minimum, your doctor will perform the procedure in 15-minute increments. It’s possible that a full-facial surgery will take around 90 minutes.

After Procedure what you can face

Light Chemical Peel

  The skin will be red, dry, and irritated after treatment, though these effects may fade with each subsequent treatment. To calm the skin, your doctor may apply a protective ointment such as petroleum jelly. If you desire, you can usually apply makeup the next day.

Treated areas take about one to seven days to heal after a light chemical peel

Medium Chemical Peel

  The skin that has been treated will be red and swollen. You’ll experience a stinging sensation. A protective ointment may be applied by your doctor.

You can conceal any redness with cosmetics after five to seven days.

Deep Chemical Peel

  You’ll have a lot of redness and swelling. You’ll also experience a burning and throbbing sensation.

Treated areas will develop new skin within about two weeks after a deep chemical peel
