What Happens During A Chemical Peel?

 

A chemical peel is a procedure that exfoliates the top layer of your skin using an acid. It is effective in removing dead skin cells, fine lines, small scars, freckles, and other skin imperfections. 

This procedure comes in different degrees of strength depending on what your skin needs. When it comes to choosing the best chemical peel, the answer will depend on your personal needs. Yet, it can be difficult to determine which one is the most suitable option from three different chemical peels.

When in doubt, we recommend you to consult with your aesthetician. Your aesthetician will give an expert guide to which chemical peel is best for your skin care needs. The general rule is, the stronger the chemical peel, the more drastic the change will be. And therefore the longer the recovery time will take.

Types of Chemical Peels:

If your skin needs minor touch-ups like slight discoloration and uneven texture, you can get the lunchtime peel (also called superficial peel). This procedure only targets the outer layer of the skin. If you are experiencing severe acne scars and sun damage, however, a stronger peel would be better. The medium or deep peel can help reverse the damage to your skin. Your aesthetician will apply more powerful acids like glycolic acids which will go deeper into your skin than a lunchtime peel. This procedure penetrates to the middle layers of your skin, removing damaged cells buried in there. This type of peel can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, age spots, and discoloration that are more pronounced than what a lunchtime peel can treat. With a deep peel, your skin will experience the most dramatic changes compared to the other two options. Because this procedure is more intense, it is restricted to the face and can only be performed once. To pick the best acid, choose the one that will most effectively resolve your skin issues while keeping your desired recovery time.

What Are The Side Effects of Chemical Peels?

All chemical peels can sting and that is normal. The level of pain you experience depends on the strength of peel you undergo. The lunchtime peel is typically the least painful because it uses alpha-hydroxy, lactic, fruit, or glycolic acids which are known to be gentle on the skin. Keep in mind that chemical peels can still result in redness and a stinging sensation after the treatment. In some cases, your skin may feel irritated or crust during healing. But after a few days, these side effects will subside.
