Chemical peel (also referred to as derma peeling or chemexfoliation) is a versatile cosmetic procedure carried out by skin specialists to resurface the skin by applying chemical solutions. Various types of peeling solutions are available for different skin concerns. The type of chemical peel used during the treatment depends upon the individuals’ skin type and the severity of the skin concern that is being treated. It works by exfoliating the skin i.e. removal of the superficial damaged skin layers.
At Charma Clinic, the best skin rejuvenation clinic in Bangalore, this treatment is either done alone or combined with other cosmetic procedures to deliver the best outcomes. The new skin that appears after chemical peeling is smoother & softer. The most common body parts ( face, neck, and hands ) are targeted by chemical peel in Bangalore.
There are mainly three types or categories of chemical peels according to different chemical strengths (based on varying depths of skin penetration) required to address individual skin concerns. These include:
1. Light Chemical Peel
It only exfoliates the skin epidermis (superficial skin layers) and treats skin issues that are found only on the skin surface. It helps unclog the pores and treat mild skin imperfections such as:
It shall be applied again after every two to five weeks. Recovery after using this lunchtime chemical peel may take a few hours or a day.
Examples include alpha hydroxyl acids like glycolic acid and beta hydroxy acids such as salicylic acid. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore, the best cosmetic dermatologist at Bangalore, suggests one get a light chemical peel treatment around once a month for optimum results.
2. Medium Chemical Peel
It acts on the skin epidermis and some portions of the upper skin dermis (middle skin layers) to remove the damaged skin cells. It is generally used to treat:
Recovery from the medium chemical peeling may take a week or longer and would require some downtime. The most commonly used medium-strength chemical peels include trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and glycolic acid. This type of chemical peel treatment also needs to be repeated for long-lasting results.
3. Deep Chemical Peel
It removes the deeper skin cells that lie far beneath the upper skin dermis (i.e. it acts by penetrating the lower-middle skin layer). This type of chemical peel is ideal for treating:
One does not have to get multiple sessions for deep chemical peeling as a single treatment can provide the full effect lasting for many years. But it has a significant downtime and long recovery period as compared to light and medium depth peels. It makes use of strong chemical acids (i.e. phenols) to be able to penetrate deep into the skin. Local anesthesia might be given in some cases beforehand to prevent the pain and discomfort upon its application. It requires several weeks of downtime. Since deep peels can cause more harm than benefit to the patient they are not used to treat patients any longer.
