What is Chemical Peel Treatment?
It is a completely non-invasive treatment that does not require any anesthesia. It is a process of exfoliation to rejuvenate your skin. Chemical peels produce results by damaging the skin in a controlled manner and promoting the healing process so that the skin can heal naturally. They work to reduce scars by removing the dead and scarred layers of skin which permit the growth of new, healthy, and scar-free skin. They also help to cure blemishes, uneven pigmentation, and other signs of aging.
How does it work?
An acidic mixture is applied to your skin to raise the pH of your skin to an optimum acidity level. The chemicals used in the mixture will make blisters on the skin. It will cause exfoliation and peels off the outermost scarred layer of skin, stimulating the growth of new skin cells. The skin regenerated has no scars, blemishes, or uneven texture. After the procedure, you may feel slight burning sensations that are settled by cold compresses. They are being used in combination with other treatments to get the optimum results based on individual requirements.
Chemical peels remove the dead and dull layer of skin to reveal a smoother, brighter, and revitalized skin. It will even out pigmentation and irregular texture issues. It gives you an instant glowing look and improves skin clarity which has less appearance of wrinkles. It is best suited for patients with lighter skin tones so the treated area easily blends in with the untreated skin. People with dark skin should think twice before going for chemical peels, because it may create a significant difference between the treated and untreated skin. For clients, who have deep and extensive scars, they may require multiple sessions to get the best results.
