About the Chemical Peel (Skin Refinishing)

A chemical peel is an effective way to satisfy people who are unhappy with the look and feel of their skin. It is a face peeling treatment in which a chemical is applied to the skin, which eventually “peels off” the upper layer of the skin to expose a new, fresh, and smoother layer of the skin.

Face peeling treatment is the most suitable for people who have positive and realistic expectations out of the cosmetic procedure for large pores, wrinkled skin, and scars. However, for a chemical peel to be effective, it is important that the interested candidate does not smoke, or leaves it well before undergoing this procedure.

What conditions of the skin can be treated with a chemical peel?

Chemical peel is a great cosmetic procedure for crow’s feet, acne scars, and wrinkles. Each year, thousands of patients opt chemical peel for dark skin, marks, acne and dark patches.

The following condition of the skin can be effectively treated with the help of face peeling treatment:

  • Mild scars
  • Fine lines around mouth
  • Crow’s feet and other fine lines under the eyes
  • Age Spots
  • Freckles
  • Discoloured skin and dark patches
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Age-related wrinkles
  • Melasma

A chemical peel process is best suited for people who wish to enhance the look and feel of their skin. A flawless skin is associated with a great boost in self-confidence. People who have lost the charm of their skin because of ageing or damage caused due to acne and sun exposure can look forward to this procedure to regain their youthful looks and clear complexion and to feel confident once again.

Who is the best candidate for a chemical peel?

The  best candidate for a chemical peel is someone who is fair-skinned, light-haired, and in good physical condition. However, that does not mean that chemical peel does not work well for those who have dark colored skin and hair.

People who understand this procedure well and expect smoother skin, improved texture, improve wrinkles, and reduced acne to be the end result of the procedure should opt for it.

Interested candidates should not expect this procedure to treat severe wrinkles, bulges, and sagged skin. There are other more effective cosmetic procedures for the treatment of these conditions and the cosmetologist is the best person to advise a treatment in this case.

Effectiveness of Chemical Peels

Depending on the type of chemical used, a face peeling treatment can chisel away the layers of the skin at great depths or only at superficial levels. Typically, mild scars and wrinkles, fine lines, spots, and freckles are treated with mild chemical peel, while removal of blotches, pre-cancerous growth, and coarse wrinkles may require a more deeper chemical peel.

Chemicals that peel off deeper layers of the skin are also helpful in eliminating any pre-cancerous growths that the patient may be looking forward to removal. However, there are certain aspects that the doctor may take into consideration before conducting deep chemical peel. For example, this treatment is not suitable for heart patients and people who are required to stay out in the sun as a part of their daily routine.

Glycolic peels are quite popular among people who look forward to the treatment of hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and acne. Glycolic peels consist of glycolic acid and other therapeutic ingredients to treat different conditions related to the skin.

How is Chemical Peel (Skin Refinishing) performed?

A chemical peel is an outpatient procedure. That is, the patient is not required to stay at the cosmetologist’s clinic or hospital overnight. During the procedure, the cosmetologist thoroughly cleans the skin of the patient before applying a layer of a selected chemical solution. The solution is applied in small patches on the target areas, as it does its work by creating wounds on the skin and removing the upper layer of the skin.

The solution could be that of glycolic acid, salicylic acid, carbolic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or any other agent. These chemicals work by destroying the targeted layer of skin and letting new skin cells emerge in its place. The chemical is selected based on the targeted depth that needs treatment. This is decided by the cosmetologist conducting the treatment. Glycolic peel and TCA peels are the two most commonly performed procedures.

Patients experience burning sensation during skin peeling. The burning and stinging sensation subside in a few minutes, and certain medications are sometimes administered to relieve the discomfort.

Recovery from Chemical Peel (Skin Refinishing)

After the chemical peel, patients may experience a bit of pain, redness and sunburn-like characteristics for at least three to seven days. You may be asked to wear bandages and avoid going out in the sun completely until the skin heals completely and the new layer of skin gets used to the environment.
