Chemical Peel Treatments
A chemical peel is highly acidic, because it is a combination of skin care elements and naturally occurring acids such as alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), beta hydroxy acid (BHA) or salicylic acid. It is applied on the skin surface to peel it off. It should not be administered without the opinion of a qualified dermatologist or a licensed health care professional.
Types of Chemical Peels. Many peels in the market today are simply a combination of several skin peeling agents.
A peel can be categorized as mild, medium or deep peel. The type, depth and strength of chemical peels are defined by the level of acidity contained in the formulation.
Superficial/Mild Peel It is considered mild because it does not go beyond the outer skin layer, the epidermis. It uses a glycolic or salicylic acid solution on the skin, hence only causes some slight change to the skin and is safe on all skin types.
Benefits of Chemical Peels
They are also used in the effective management of a number of skin complications, such as:
Removing scars, dead skin and cancerous cells.
Correcting skin pigmentation problems.
Removing acne, sun exposure rashes, old and deep wrinkled skin.
After visiting Pelle Dolce Skin Care, the complexion of your skin will improve to a radiant appearance in a very short time.
Mild or Light Peels
Salicylic acid is unique amongst the hydroxy acids in that it can penetrate deeper into the oil glands causing exfoliation even in the oily areas of the face and scalp, making it ideal for treating acne and oily skin.
Lactic acid occurs naturally in human skin and is also found in milk. It is less irritating than other AHAs and has a natural moisturising effect on the skin. It is ideal for skin brightening. It can be used to treat pigmentation, dry or dehydrated skin, sensitive skin, rosacea.
Fruit enzymes can also be used as peeling agents. Commonly used fruit enzymes come from fruits such as papaya, pineapple, pumpkin and cranberry. They are anti?bacterial, promote cell renewal and can digest oil from spots (sebum) and dead skin. They can be used to treat acne, rosacea, dehydrated skin, hyper?reactive and sensitive skin.
Tartaric acid comes from grapes and is a less irritating alternative to glycolic acid for a milder exfoliation of the skin. It can also help increase hydration. It can be used to treat acne, photo damage, rosacea, superficial pigmentation, eczema.
Malic acid comes from apples and pears and like tartaric acid is a weaker AHA than glycolic acid. It can be used to treat acne, photo damage, rosacea, superficial pigmentation, eczema. Citric acid comes from lemons and oranges and works in the same way as tartaric and malic acids. It can be used to treat acne, photo damage, rosacea, superficial pigmentation, eczema.
TCA or trichloroacetic acid is a stronger acid than glycolic. It penetrates deeper into the skin and is usually used for medium depth or deep peels although it can be used at a lower concentration in combination with other acids for a milder peel. It can be used to treat skin tightening, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, large pores, hyperpigmentation.
Carbolic acid is found in Phenol peels and is the strongest type of peeling agent available. It is used for very deep peels. It can be used to treat deep lines and wrinkles, scarring, severe sun damage.
