Wish to make your scars disappear? We understand how you feel. Scars can be annoying by affecting your appearance and your self-image. Chemical peels might be the right treatment for your scars you have been looking for.
What are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are an acidic solution, usually alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), or beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that are applied to the skin for exfoliation. These chemical peels are usually used for rejuvenation of the face, neck or hands.
Chemical peels are available in different types to attend different needs like deep, medium, and superficial chemical peels. A superficial chemical peel is used to improve the skin tone because it treats the uppermost epidermal layer of the skin only.
A medium strength chemical peel can penetrate in the upper and middle skin layer which makes it effective for treating wrinkles, blemishes, and freckles. However, a deep chemical peel that can deeply penetrate into the middle skin layer. It can remove the appearance of wrinkles and scars along with other signs of aging.
Superficial or medium chemical peels may require more than one treatment session to produce desired results. But, a deep chemical peel can only be performed once in a while. It is likely to produce the desired results in one treatment session.
How Does it Work?
Chemical peels is a simple and short procedure that would not take longer than 20 minutes to be completed. It is a minimally invasive and completely painless treatment. Neither an anesthesia nor a numbing cream is required. It is based on the principle of exfoliation, and it takes away the dead and damaged layer of the skin when the peel takes off.
The solution promotes a skin regeneration which is a natural healing process of the skin. After the peel is taken off, the appearance of scars is reduced, or the scars will become completely invisible. This procedure may cause redness and other side effects, but the new skin that comes afterward will be free from age spots, scars, blemishes and uneven skin tone or texture.
What should I Expect from Chemical Peels?
A chemical peel can take away the damaged and dead layer of skin revealing the smooth, even and rejuvenated skin that is free from any scars. It improves the quality of skin while removing some undesirable cosmetic conditions. If you have deep scars that are removed with one session, you can remove it completely by taking up few more sessions of chemical peels with a certain time gap.
You may experience redness and burning in the treatment area that can be reduced with the help of cold compresses.
