Doctors use chemical peels only on people that have superficial scars. The idea of this treatment is to remove the top layer of the skin revealing a smother complexion. This method is recommended for people that don’t suffer from severe acne scars and deep wrinkles. Chemical peels are not recommended for people with major skin flaws.
Chemical Peel Treatment
Alpha hydroxyl facial peels:
Organic carbolic acids are what make up alpha hydroxy acids (AHA). Minor skin issues such as acne scars, dry patches and fine wrinkles will be improved with this type of chemical peel. The specialist determines how much of this his product is to be used. The highest dose that can be supplied by a specialist is between 50-70%. Treatments at this level only need to be repeated once every 2-5 years and give results similar to microdermabrasion. With such a high concentration comes more skin irritation such as severe redness, and flaking. There are at home chemical peels available with amounts of alpha hydroxy acid as low as 10%.
Trichloroacetic acid facial peels:
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is the next level of chemical peels. This type of chemical peel helps reduce deeper wrinkles, acne scars and precancerous skin lesions. The effects of this treatment are more dramatic but the results are greater. Patients will need up to one week to recover from the severe burned like skin on the face.
Phenol facial peels:
One of the most intense chemical peels is called a Phenol Peel. It is appropriate for patients with deep wrinkles as well as for sun damaged or pigmented facial areas. The procedure can take up to one hour to complete and at the end the skin is neutralized with cold water. Phenol peels are not recommended to people with darker complexions because once the redness fades the skin will turn white.
Chemical peels have many advantages. One of them is that they diminish the expression lines. Chemical peels are also a great treatment for acne scar removal. Either an over the counter chemical peel or an extreme treatment can give excellent results.
Chemical peels can present some restrictions. They cannot change pore size or deep acne scars on the face, only improve the appearance of these conditions similar to laser resurfacing or dermabrasion. Given that the cost of chemical peels is high, some people prefer others treatments. Since multiple treatments are required to achieve results, chemical peels prices may be too expensive.
BIOSKINCARE is a natural exfoliation product that can achieve the same results as chemical peels or dermabrasion without the cost or side effects. This product acts on the skin removing dead cells yet not interfering with the healthy ones. BIOSKINCARE is recommended for acne treatment, fine wrinkles and fragile skin types that cannot tolerate pressure or friction on the skin.
