Choose a chemical peel for the effective treatment of wrinkles

If fine lines and wrinkles are beginning to appear on your face, and you want your skin to look fresher and younger, then a chemical peel is the perfect facial rejuvenator.  A chemical peel is an effective treatment for skin issues such as wrinkles, rosacea, acne, dark spots, and scars. It peels away damaged skin to reveal skin that feels softer and looks brighter.

What is a chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic technique in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin, to remove the outer layers. These layers often contain dead or damaged skin cells. The number of layers that are sloughed off will depend on the strength of the chemical solution used.

Types of chemical peels

There are advanced chemical peels that penetrate deeply, and alsomedium strength and mild or superficial peels. Deep peels are usually recommended for the face only, while mild peels can be done on the face, neck, and other parts of the body. The classification given to the peel depends on the percentage of the peeling ingredient present in the solution, as well as the PH level. Mild peels can be done in your lunch hour, and have a short downtime, while medium to deep peels require a longer recovery period.

Peeling Solutions

Phenol acid is often used for deep peels, and can treat facial wrinkles and sun damaged skin. Trichloroacetic acid (TA) is typically used for medium peels. It can treat fine wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), such as glycolic acid and fruit acids,are used to perform mild peels.AHAs also treat wrinklesand acne, and also uneven pigmentation.
