More than 30 different types of peels. Various peels like Chemical peel, combination peels, sequential peels, segmental peels, phasic peels, and target peels to tackle various skin problems like pigmentation, dark marks, scars, acne, uneven skin tone, tan, dullness of skin, and even under eye dark circles.
This is a procedure in which a chemical solution, which is mostly a fruit acid, is used to improve and smoothen the texture of the skin by removing its damaged outer layers. It is helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation. Phenol, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) are used for this purpose . The type of peel depends on the person”s skin problem and their needs.
Alphahydroxy acids (AHAs), such as glycolic, lactic, or fruit acids are the mildest of the peel formulas and produce light peels. These types of peels can provide smoother, brighter-looking skin for people who can’t spare the time to recover from a phenol or TCA peel. AHA peels may be used to treat fine wrinkling, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne. Various concentrations of an AHA may be applied weekly or at longer intervals to obtain the best result. The decision about the type of peel is made during the consultation and as the treatment proceeds.
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) can be used in many concentrations, but it is most commonly used for medium-depth peeling. Fine surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes and pigment problems are commonly treated with TCA . The number of peels needed depends on the skin problem.
All chemical peels carry some uncertainty and risk. Chemical peel is normally a safe procedure when it is performed by a qualified, experienced cosmetic dermatologist. There may be slight stinging, redness and irritation . However, as the skin adjusts to the treatment regimen, these problems will subside.
Previously peels were done with single substances. But now peels have become more advanced and so a variety of combination peels. Phasic peels and sequential peels are available. The treatments vary with the skin problems and the type of response shown by the skin.
